Quoted from paulywalnuts23:

Has anyone ever tried using Chrome Spray Paint to refurbish your BOP helmet?
Just wanted to see if anyone had and how it turned out..

Anyone try this stuff? I've seen some folks recommend it for restoring mirrored sections on a flaking backglass.

Quoted from weaverj:

looking for a BOP. what's your early diagnosis of this one:
ebay.com link » The Machine Bride Of Pin Bot Pinball Arcade Pinbot

I wouldn't even bother. Popular titles tend to fetch crazy prices in ebay auctions. The last 30 seconds of the auction is where all the real bidding happens.

Quoted from weaverj:

would you guys say BOP has more in common with WPC or system11 games? i have all wpc, so a lot of parts for those. will i be buying a lot of new replaceables or should i be in pretty good shape?

It is a WPC game, with WPC-era parts. It also depends upon what you have in stock and what you plan on replacing, so only you can answer that.

Quoted from Talon2000:

Edit. Well I found that you aren't supposed to use the metal guides according to CPR, however the holes are much larger than original, and result in the balls not sitting right in the face plastics. That sucks.
Ok, so today I'm working on replacing the face plastics with the new CPR ones. Drilling the holes and mounting the metal ball rest plate was straight forward on the mouth face. However on the Eye lock face, the countersink screws are mounted under the plastic ball guides. My search of the forum hasn't resulted in finding a post on how you guys are drilling the holes for the metal ball rests on the eye face.
How have you guys done this?

Maybe try drilling holes new holes in the metal plate that miss the new plastic ball guides?

Quoted from volcanodiver:

CPR can't do the beveled edge on the holes, so in order to not have balls roll over the holes w/o stopping they needed to enlarge the holes. This leads to bride googly eyes. This can also lead to balls falling into the head (not the catchpan) if the head turns with a ball in the face holes. Its a poor design that we are stuck with, mostly because people don't like the yellowed guides. The faces are almost always fine. what is needed is replacement guides.

Could you use a step drill bit to get a bevel on the eye holes? Or is that not worth the trouble?
