Quoted from robertmee:
I've got a BK that I had all intents to restore, but alas, my business has kept me too busy and it's time to let it go. I have no idea how to value it as it is all in pieces (how I received it to begin with).
New CPR Playfields
New CPR Plastic set missing one plastic but have the old one
Two working board sets
Refinished cabinet with new back and luan bottom. Average stencil job on cabinet, head needs redone
New Mayfair mirrored Backglass
All the metal parts, side rails, coin door, powdercoated gray sparkle
All the parts are accounted for as far as I can tell, just needs a complete reassembly. The previous owner started populating the playfield, but I would probably start it over myself and clean up the wiring harness a bit.
I hate to part it out and I know I'd get more money if I did, but I'm hoping a BK lover wants to restore it back. Any idea as to what would be a fair price for something like this?
I don't want to ship...any locals feel free to PM me if interested.
I'm the fella who bought this project from robertmee. I felt the price was a fair one. Robert seems like a really cool guy. He did a great job on the bottom luan replacement. The cabinet art is like he says, "average". So far I have the back box back in Virginia where my paint equiptment is. I'm going to repaint it, then the bottom cabinet. My wife is going to paint the side art. Robert did give me the stencils but I may have a better way. If someone here could please post high res pics of the sidearts and art around the coin door that would be much appreciated. Please make the pics as straight on without and angle as possible. I can print the pics and my wife can hand paint this. I've seen her do it before, not on a pin, and it looks amazing. It helps being married to an art major. I have nice hvlp equiptment. Should I clear coat the back box and cabinet? I can't wait to post the results!
Anways, It appears all the parts are here. Once I get into putting it all together I will know for sure. The play fields are amazing. Great job CPR. I'll be pulling parts from them and polishing. Anyone know a good technique for cleaning the wires? The legs, side rails and coin door are very pretty. He had them powder coated a metallic dark gray. The repro back glass is awesome however the original don't look bad either.
I plan to go back with full led's. I've read so much about these games having heat and wiring issues from the gi pulling so much amperage. Robertmee, if you are reading this, after I'm done you're welcome to come by and bash this thing.
