Joining the club today, it’s been over twelve months in the making and almost there.
I’ve touched up/clear coated a few Gottlieb playfields, but after testing removal of the Mylar it didn’t look very promising.
I think this playfield was from Peters second run. WOW, a thing of beauty!
A slight hiccup with the PPS decal order, but was quickly shipped a right side replacement. Let’s hope if I ever scratch the sides, it’s going to be the left for my spare
My original bride lost all her red and yellow, hence the need for new decals.
The floor had to go, was warped, swollen and had that stink of damp wood smell.
I applied the head decal’s first using the wet method which was pain catching water, so bit the bullet and applied the cabinet ones dry. Super easy and the dry method is the way to go from now on.
My light panel was also swollen in places so made a new one. As you would know, BoP has lots of lamp holes!
Playfield reassembly and testing at home as it motivated me to hurry up and get my living room space back! Coin door has since been painted.
I’ve never used mirror blades before and think that I will install them on all machines from now on.
I have emailed Larry at Starship Fantasy a couple of times if the reproduction helmet is ever going to be made again, but looks like it’s never going to happen Someone in the past applied glow in the dark paint which glows green for hours after she’s off. Something different and has freaked me out a couple of times wondering around in the dark.
I have a Pinduino kit installed (which looks super cool on YouTube videos), but just can’t get it to work. Currently diagnosing the issue, hence the cables hanging out in the top right.
My 5V line is currently at 4.8V (no resets), with sporadic power up U6 checksum errors, so studying pinwiki about the 5V issues before asking lyonsden for assistance.
Another German container pin BoP bought back from the dead and really enjoying playing her with the new playfield. The sounds and call outs on this game are fantastic.
Don’t think the neighbours in my unit block are happy with my pinball though
Hope that 3D translite becomes available to purchase one day.
