I picked up a Black Knight 2000 playfield several months ago. The pin is so beautiful I just wanted to hang it on my wall. Just looking at it I can hear “I am the Black Knight”. The longer I looked at it the longer I decided I needed to do something for this work of art. So, it has begun. It really took shape this week. The playfield, lighting is done. The sound is almost done. The frame is cut and in the “first coat of paint” stage. So close yet so far…more to come. I will post a video of it in action, soon.

Cut and fit the cabinet/frame today. Installed the faux flipper brackets, and painted the first coat…I am a little out of my league with what is next. Taping and painting.

Quoted from ToucanF16:

It is at least 90% done. I am currently painting the frame and itching to add the push buttons and T-Molding to it. The right push button will have 4 tracks and the left will also have 4 additional tracks from the game that you can listen to. I used an Adafruit Audio FX Sound Board - WAV/OGG Trigger with 16MB Flash to run the audio.

That is a great idea! Now i have to get another old playfield and make a coffee table.

Hopefully i will be able to do some of the painting/pin-striping on the BK2K frame this weekend.

Lots of taping and lots of waiting. Maybe tomorrow I can do the white rectangle.

Not my best work, but ok for my first time doing detailed painting. It is good enough to hang on my wall. Next, wait 48 hours and spray it with a layer of clear.

Thank you! What was originally just going to be a playfield that I was going to hang on my wall as is…Snowballed into a wonderfully fun project. I kept expecting to screw it up every step of the way, and when I did I pivoted to make it work. In true pinball fashion I do have some minor clear coat ghosting where I over tightened the screws on the fame/cabinet It seemed fitting, so I left it. I even waxed the playfield.
Here is the video of it finally on my wall.
