I am happy to be in the SI club as of today, the machine I bought at https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/ad/62145 has arrived finally.
It has the typical playfield wear and battery acid damage, but I have been collecting parts for the last two weeks and will be doing a complete restore. I am replacing the playfield with a CPR repro when they are done later this year (hopefully), but otherwise everything else will be done this summer.
I am keeping this machine permanently, so yes I am aware I am dumping too much money into it but it's worth it to me. I vividly remember seeing this game for the first time when I was 9 years old and it scared the heck out of me lol. Loved dumping quarters into it and it's what got me into pinball lust. I have been looking for a project machine for a long long time, and when I saw the one posted here I jumped on it. Very happy to own it finally.
I will be posting restore photos and videos as I go.
