The stainless steel lift channel is probably the most sought after piece. I've attached a picture of the special seal that is needed with the lift channel.

This is a bit of a long shot but I am in the final stages of restoring my Banzai and noticed how ick my factory cabinet decals were during the cabinet restore. Was hoping someone might have a scan or good picture of one of these? I have a laminating and decal machine so I could make it but the graphic on mine is to far gone. Hoping someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks

I appreciate it. I had already sent him several PMs but he seems to no longer be around. I'll keep hunting but Any good image or help is Greatly appreciated.

#160 8 months ago

I will check mine tonight and PM you with a photo if it looks good enough.

Wow, Thank you!! Its such a small non important detail but with a full cabinet restoration I would hate to skimp on trying to make it original. Even if the scale is off anything would look better than the one I sanded off! Thank you!

I’ll check mine too when I get home

Thank you! I will see if I can recreate that. Can't imagine a non OEM font will make my game play any better. Thanks again!

#166 8 months ago

Mines not the best condition but hopefully you can use this.
Have you thought about recreating it in word using the same font?
Would sure look tidy.
Good luck with the restore.

Thank you both very much! With these 2 examples I am going to do my best to recreate the image and font. Mine was so blown out I could barely read it. When I do create it I will upload for anyone else in future need for free. Need to keep these BR’s looking pretty! Thanks again.

CPR page has been updated for Banzai Run, it is in The Pipe and now showing as "CNC Cutting Now, Inserts Being Installed"

#169 8 months ago

This came from way down the list. Good to know (or hope) that I'll be getting one. I can assume that the original list has had some people drop out so this makes my chances better.

New member here! Have not scanned through this thread but curious if anyone knows when or if new plastics will be available through CPR or PPS ?

#171 5 months ago

I just bought a new CPR Banzai Run backglass today! I don't know when these became available, but get yours while supplies last! I am not sure if it comes with the inner transparent sheet as the previous run did; I have sent an email to Kevin asking about it. I also asked him if the plastics were going to be available at some point in the near future. That sure would be nice, since I need a set and to combine shipping would be an added bonus!

Does anybody know the dimensions of this game with the headboard folded down? Can only assume that the upper playfield will make this much taller than a standard pin ...,

Quoted from transprtr4u:

Simple answer is no measurements but...

I’ve taken mine to a show twice and here is my best answer. If layed down flat (legs off on the ground), like I do to put it I’m the back of my Ford Expedition SUV, it’s taller than a standard game. I have to cram it in.

If standing it up on it butt like you would move it with a dolly, width is the same, height is the same, but depth is greater.

Hope that helps

34 7/16” tall when backbox down.

Just in case everyone has not heard, CPR has backglasses and plastic sets available. According to Kevin Wayte, in the very near future, you will be able to order on-demand, anything that they have done from day one! That means that anytime you want, you will be able to order a glass, plastic set, or playfield, without having to wait for them to get enough people to say that they want something. Keep checking their website, as they will soon have a new website, which will have all of their items. Yes, the licensed stuff will be available too. If you do a search on Pinside, you will find the thread and it is quite long!

Have the Banzai playfield(s) been done before?

This is amazing news for my BR. Awesome. Love this game so much and plan to make it a minter one day

#181 4 months ago
Quoted from transprtr4u:

No they are being done as we speak for the first time. I missed the registration but think I am on the reserve list.

#182 4 months ago

Again, not to worry. Once CPR starts this new business, you will be able to get any playfield, any time. Keep in mind though, these will be digitally reprinted, as opposed to silkscreened. They will be doing limited runs of silk screen playfields, but don't hold your breath on a title that you are looking for (think, which ones will bring the most bucks).

#183 4 months ago

I am still hoping that someone will reproduce the upper playfield; mine is badly faded. I heard a few years ago that Mirco might be doing these, but probably not, since there is not a lot of demand for it.

#184 4 months ago

Hi,

I will run them for sure probably early next year or maybe end of this year. I have a game myself and need a new playfield.

Regards,
Mirco

Mine is shipping this week and want to order some misc parts, any chance somebody has a picture of behind the translight ?

For transport how easy is it to remove the backbox? May not fit in my Explorer with backbox folded.

It's all do-able, but personally I would look to friends that I could borrow a van from or even rent one, before I would want to screw with BB removal of a BR.

Not what I was hoping to hear. Thanks for the insight.

What kind of vehical are you trying to transport in? I pulled the head on mine and it never seem to go back right. I would find another way to move if you have that option.

#191 3 months ago

My game crossed the border yesterday! Arrived at the terminal this morning. Now the long wait for them to open.

2017 Ford Explorer - Can fit a Stern, B/W, etc. but cannot fit a Gottlieb System 3 without moving head down.

Followup question, is the head narrower than a standard or is it the exact same width?

Thanks

#199 3 months ago

The head is just barely wider than a standard system 11. It sits flush (ie stacked) on either side of the cabinet, so roughly 1" thick like the thickness of a sheet of the plywood on each side.

The POTC I helped sell would not fit in without moving the head off and forward. We turned the game on its side. Granted about a hour and half drive all turned out ok.
