Hey guys. Relatively new member in over my head on a refurb. The mylar had to go. Simple as that. Using the proper techniques I managed only very minor insert graphics lifting but getting the glue off took it down to the paint. Waxed the hell out of it and while I'm sure it will play for a good long while, it just doesn't shine.

Looking for a new mylar. If anyone has a bead on one man I'd be indebted. The cut my own variety seems fraught with peril.

I will attest to Mr. Tantrums quality and customer service. One heck of a skilled guy.

I'll get some pics up when I can!

This is the other big hurt from the Wichita auction. I've put some serious elbow grease into it. Its fully decked out now with LEDs out the wazoo. Just a little bit further to go and I'd put it next to any big hurt there is.

Had over 36000 plays. No one ever so much as cracked two billion. After I fixed all the broken everything, I nailed down 3.2B and GC'd the game. Lol. It really is a fun pin.

Powder coat all the way. Paint just will not give the durability required for years of good looking service I want it to have. Removal looks daunting, but if you take your time and follow the advice from vid1900 on doing so, it's a relative breeze.

You guys may get a kick out of this as well.

I asked Mr. Tantrum, the guy above who made instruction cards for me, just how far his talents go. He knocked one out of the park for me, pun intended. Check out these custom decals for the apron, standups, and drop targets. It looks pretty dang amazing.

While the cam doesn't pick it up, I also added a UV strip just above the drop targets which fluoresce beautifully.

With the exception of the mylar I asked about months ago, shes a polished gem of a bh. Thanks again Tantrum!
