Back on T2. Have a few new extra parts…thinking about a trade so, I’m putting in the extra effort to do it right…

Novus 2, micro cloth, and generous elbow grease can make these dirty flippers clean up well.

Quoted from brobra:

Makes me feel like a dick for being a snob, lol. I get their purpose, and if done well, they seem to play fine. I do get where the purist come from, but not everyone is a purist.

I’m still anti hardtop. Newbie just got a EK and it was all bubbling. I was the one that had to tell him. It’s getting sorted but I noticed some lifting on another here also.

I didn’t like my Drac that had full playfield protector but only because dust gets under them around the switches. I’m very OCD about dust.

#1753 12 days ago

I have a protector on my Stars and AFM. Love them, I really don't even notice them while playing.

Can't comment on a hardtop.

Brobra - nice job on that flipper.

#1754 12 days ago

Oops, I thought you were removing the toys from the LOTR playfield, instead I was just a jerk to you. Sorry!

#1755 12 days ago

No worries. I had the character kit and platform, so I threw it on there. I don’t think you fouled out. Everyone has their preferences.

I’ve seen some bad overlays. But there’s a distinction between overlay vs hardtop.

Outer Edge hardtops are quite nice when installed correctly.

#1757 12 days ago

What I’ve seen, it’s not just about the hard top but it’s also who installs it. Needs to be done right. I played a black Knight with hard top and was one of the best playing BKs I’ve played.

At the end of the day I’d take a CPR playfield though.

#1758 12 days ago

Playfield has cleaned up fairly well.
Gave her a polish, now wax, and then build up with new plastics, parts, and some warm Leds.

That playfield looks pretty amazing.

If you've never taken a road trip through Nashville, put it on the list. Game terminal has the best lineup I've ever seen in person. Visited last evening on my overnight.

And the switch blades. I hate putting a new rubber on and getting dirt tracks right away. (Sorry for being a backseat shopper)

Quoted from brobra:

Eye of Sauron back box flasher and potd characters and platform installed. I don’t need them to light up. I’ve had it and It’s ok, but I’d rather see my potd points lights, instead.
The army of the dead are the most bad ass fighters in the history of cinema.
This game is game puked pretty good, not my cup of tea, but leaving it.
I’m not bad at this game, so I’ll post a Brobra play and see how deep I can get.
Let’s go for cracking 100 million cold, for a solid test drive….

Where did you get the eye flasher mod? Maybe I should do that to mine.

Awesome looking met love that game.

I actually don’t recall. I had it in parts/mods bin, and bought for another one years ago.
I’ll message you if I find it.

Quoted from Kare9:

It’s the most underrated game around, but the folks are figuring it out. It’s all fine example of a stern, well designed themed mofo of a game. Sorry, but it puts Zepplin to shame. I wouldn’t have made Zepplin with handcuffs on. I’m pretty sure that’s what happened. They they did the best they could; but Metallica is “what is” and Zepp is “what should never be”….

Agree 100% on the comment and the CPR, no hassles then.

I’m depressed now, Metallica will be leaving…but I’m going to play the hell out it before then. It’s such a great game.

Just like anything else - the end result depends on how much prep work went into it. The entire PF needs to be sanded down and everything made level before the hardtop goes on.

Here’s a pic of my Jungle Lord in the prep process:

Heh - soon! That pic is about where we are at. Im teaching my son how to restore a game and I’m just assisting. It’s going slower than if it were me due to having to find time for both of us to work on it at the same time.

#1778 10 days ago

That’s fucking awesome passing down the craft. We’re going to a need the young generation to take care of us and restore our games while we drool on our shirts. My kids promised me a shed and shop. That’s all I ask of them

I was going to play it last night for the first time, and was really looking forward to it. But the machine at the location I was visiting had 100% of the GI out. You can't play what you can't see!
