    Responses to threads like this are what pinball stewardship is all about. With demand seemingly (I don't buy or sell that often) on the rise for affordable pins in "good" condition, the more games we can bring back from the brink the bigger the fan base gets. It's good for all sections of the industry.

    Keep the pix coming!

    #9 1 year ago

    Wow, some of these transformations are incredible. Keep em coming!

    #10 1 year ago

    The game was neglected in an old warehouse that was falling apart without the playfield glass and lots of bad wear. It didn't boot.
    I fixed it all up and repaired the worn areas.

    Game would not boot. After a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, it's flipping once more

    Full restoration on my Bad Cats. As you can see the cab was a tiny bit faded.image_(resized).jpegimage_(resized).jpeg

    #14 1 year ago

    OK, now I'm inspired to get off my ass and get back to work on my pins. Seems like I spend half my time on my project TAF, and half keeping the others tuned up. ....turning off monitor and turning on music.

    Lots of blood, sweat and beers going into these

    Sure, it took several MONTHS for me to finish my first repaint. I learned a great deal about re-creating playfield graphics by repainting them by hand. I felt it was my duty as a pinball steward to make the game Cosmetically Appealing for Play (c). It may be half-assed to some, but I still have it after all these years and it still looks fine. Another Rattle Can Rejuvenation success!

    #20 1 year ago

    now THAT's some dedication!

    #21 1 year ago

    Not much of a change here. This is my black rose after I cleaned, rebuilt the flippers, and installed LED inserts and spots. The game room before and after was much more rewarding

    Very cool looking game room. Please post more in the game room thread, would love to see more

    Sweet gameroom upgrade! That BR looks pretty nice as well.

    Thanks, I posted photos of the transition in the "Game Room" thread a while back... I really enjoy these threads, its neat seeing all the time and effort everyone spends on this hobby, not to mention the wealth of knowledge and help available. Hopefully I'll have more game pics in the future, I'm planning on going through Wh20 and Black Rose this winter, but I've been really busy lately,so we'll see if I have the time.

    #25 1 year ago

    Great thread!
    Inspiring for those of us that mostly live in the pin reality of NIB (not in box), finding nuggets but needing that nudge mid project!

    #29 1 year ago

    Oh I'm all for this. More detailed restorations documented in my post history.

    Most time I have invested in a filthy ES with tons of ball swirl and bad insert decals. Cleaned up, touched up, clear coated.

    Last summer I found a dead Getaway that started having a playfield swap 5 years prior and then the guy's wife started popping out kids. Bought it all in boxes and fortunately most of it was there!

    Most recent was a smoke damaged Shadow. Worked fine but shopped it out and re-did the head decals.

    Great Thread.

    #33 1 year ago

    2 hefty projects there! Smoke damage and the other completely torn apart. Nice job on both

    #34 1 year ago

    For some reason I really enjoy the sys11 transformations. They clean up SO well

    You also moved the under cabinet led lighting under the bed. Nice one!

    Did you get this in MA by chance?

    Quoted from MinusWorlds:

    Originally, yes. But there was a different one listed one listed on Boston craigslist section a few months back.

    The one I restored is actually for sale again on the Utica NY CL section.

    Ha! I was the first one to look at that. It's a really cool game. Had to pass as I knew it was waaaaay beyond my capabilities.
