Just thought I'd start a post regarding the new Bride of Pinbot playfields that will be out soon, as this will be my first attempt at a playfield swap!

I suspect other BoP owners will be in the same boat so a great place to post and share hints, tips and problems we run into.

I have found a great video by a fellow UK pinhead;

I hope the playfield will be with me during December, as soon as it is I will document my progress, again others that are doing the same with BoP please do the same.

I was planning to remove all top-side parts then with the 2 playfields side by side face down, loosen all underside parts then move components and wiring loom over to the new playfield and fix all parts down.
Then move back to the top-side.

I was also hoping the playfields would be dimpled, as the template thing looked a PITA.

I have purchased a bunch of fixings like t-nuts, playfield screws, ramps, new helmet, new faces etc from Pinball Life in preparation, I have the top-side pretty much stripped just waiting the playfield, oh and BoP 2.0...

Here is my photo log for the stip down thus far.


Just hope when I come to put it all back together I can follow them, only done a strip down once with Tommy, both quite 'easy' machines to do I think.

First question for my first ever playfield swap;
So I've stripped off as much as I can and I was about to make a start but during my preparation look-over the two playfields (new and existing) I have noticed some drill-holes off-center, these are for the wire ball 'guides' as such pretty important to be spot-on (I would have thought).

Does this matter?
Do I leave these to last, to make sure they line-up?

Also the holes are too small so I will need to drill them a little so do I use the actual hole and make it bigger or put a hole in the center of the art work?
