Quoted from izzy:

Following as well. You are doing a great job documenting it. Started my swap 3 days ago. I'm taking a ton of photos also. I do about 10 swaps a year. Keeps me busy.

Please add your pictures!!!

Please start your own thread if you do so it doesn’t confuse things (mostly me!) here. But yes please do share! I only do 5-6 a year. I don’t know how you find the time!

Quoted from dmacy:

The protectors are nice. I don’t make them but a place in Germany I believe does. The owner uses them on all his games so sent this to be installed. They’re permanent though. I was just laying this down to remind me to not go installing plastics as I’ll have to yank them off again to install it.

Your telling me your covering peters playfield with a protector? Why? Is it going to be routed or something?

The owner does it to all his playfields.

Bottom side and top side progress today.

Bottom side is nearly done. Soldering in a replacement switch (one was wrong and was nodded poorly) and the coils.

I’ll be eliminating the alligator clips that feed the post lights and soldering directly.

Top side to date.

This job looks awesome. The back side is so clean. all the metal is clean and all of your wires all tight and right! The top side of this game has a lot of parts. I shopped one and it was a huge pain in the ass. Yours looks amazing. It gets my seal of approval. (Than and 4 bucks will get you a cup of coffee)

#62 6 months ago

Thanks Ron! It will get tidier when it's ready. But wow, yeah there's a ton of crap piled on this title. I didn't think it had that much until I was tearing it down and it just kept going.

The Buthamburg playfields are really nice. Dimples have been really good too. I had to open up most post holes a hair and all the screw holes (normal). The kit you sell will last several playfields.

#63 6 months ago

The soldering is done. Replaced some clear tubing like this piece for the shooter lane switch.

The supervisor was creeping on me but eventually came down for inspection.

Curious to see how the spot lights will look lite up with where you have them

Quoted from mollyspub:

They’re where they were but not all permanently pointed yet.

#68 6 months ago

That looks pretty great. I'd love to swap the play field on mine because it's been touched up, but I couldn't handle it myself and paying someone isn't in the cards right now.

#69 6 months ago

I’m sure you could do it yourself. Or have some help from a fellow pinhead.

#70 6 months ago

GI is up and working. No issues today.

Inserts are all good. I had two LED’s that needed the wires spread out more. Typical led stuff lol.

Off the rotisserie after some finishing parts on the top and bottom. Tidied up the wiring, installed apron and back panel.

Is the face functioning yet? I noticed it’s on the 2nd face in all of the pics.

#75 6 months ago

I did rotate it using a 9V battery and it’s good. I don’t have the cabinet to game play test.

EDIT:here you go.

Awesome, this was my first game and when I attempted shopping it and learning on the fly, the first time, I placed the washers for the mini playfield wrong the face got hung up, I remember being so worried I ruined the thing but once I got them back on it was all good!

#78 6 months ago

I totally respect that. It’s tight and I kept checking with the battery as I went. It’s really close in there.

#79 6 months ago

BoP went home! Hope to get some installed in game pics to bring this one to a close.

No issues? It's freaking purple, it's a huge issue. There is something very wrong with it.

#81 6 months ago

Lol, everyone has their own personal taste. They like the purple. It’s their game and they’re dictating what they want. I’m just paid to swap it.

#82 6 months ago

Purple balls would suit this game, I would buy some for mine

Quoted from dmacy:

Another example of prepping for the wire ball guides in order.

What size drill bit did you use for the .093 wire guide? Did you use the 3/32" or go smaller? And if you used the 3/32", was there enough grip with the wood or did you need glue to help secure the wire guide?

Thanks

I don’t recall. Best to sneak up and go smaller and work up a size at a time.
