going to look at a BSD on Sunday
Seller claims complete restoration including the following
What do you think it is worth?
Complely stripping the upper playfield, cleaning, then clearcoating with an automotive clearcoat finish. We then applied a new coat of wax, replaced mylar around pop bumpers.
Any Playfield Plastics are NOS. Even the ones that were riveted on were replace3d with the original style rivets.
All small metal parts and hardware on the playfield was polished in a vibrating polisher and look like new!
All new rubbers, and star posts installed.
The inside of the cabinet was washed, cleaned and repainted.
All flippers rebuilt with new plungers, coil stops, sleeves, pivots. The original lightning bolt flipper bats are installed.
The underside of the playfield was meticulously cleaned. The light boards under playfield removed and cleaned, and playfield lenses cleaned from underneath playfield.
New chrome legs and bolts are included. New leg levelers.
All solenoids (not just flippers and pop bumpers) disassembled, cleaned, and new sleeves installed. Pop bumper switches cleaned and adjusted, all pop bumpers have new wafers, and metal and fiber links installed.
All solder connections tested and any with broken or partially broken wires were resoldered.
All optos were cleaned for reliability. The long range optos for the mist ball are new.
All burned or black light bulbs replaced and all new bulbs installed on the upper playfield.
Excellent dot-matrix display.
Complete game testing to assure reliability
Original manual, and premium mirror glazed pinballs are included.
Well, I'm a cynic so I question the ability of this person, because a few things don't add up:
1) You don't put mylar back down over an automotive clear coat
2) You don't wash the inside of a cabinet. You sand it down to get rid of the grime and prep it for painting
3) Noone calls inserts 'lenses'
However, maybe it's just odd advertising with a few out of place words....IF indeed everything was done that was listed, and done correctly, then I'd say around 2.3K. I do not see any mention of cabinet condition and fade, so that may detract from that price.
PS...If this is the one in No VA, it's been for sale for a LONG time.
