Loving my Marilyn taxi fully shopped. Players playfield, playing very well.
Almost 2 full reveal on the skill shot, and both ramps hit like a charm.
I think it’s one of the best playing ones out there…

Love the finish on the IJ metal. Beautiful example.

Yeah, a friend loves to mod out his games. Back Alley Creations can take credit for the powder coating. Matt’s work is really nice.

Chris royalty on the wire forms; exquisite brass plating. Don’t need to mention the quality.

Modfather on the temple.

Wood handle from some French dude; with local plating at J&D.

Here’s some nice powder coating from back alley on Godzilla premo….

Place was alright but should have checked out Parnell’s place in the Fitger’s Dungeon, at least I could have scored good Mexican upstairs….

The quarter dispenser is a quarter pusher. I kind of like but don’t know if it ever dispenser more or less than 4 quarters on a dollar bill insert….

New code has really helped.

#2916 1 year ago
Quoted from gorditas:

New code has really helped.

Definitely, game feels more intuitive, objectives and footage choreography are greatly improved.
Love working with Q to level up.

#2917 1 year ago

anyone have interest in one of these?

I'll have to give Bond another play at Hudson Tap next time if they have the updated code. I really wanted to like it but was very meh. Maybe this changes things.

We adjusted hours so I can make tourneys now. Love it up there. The lineup at midtown bar in Waite Park is starting to become my favorite mn lineup

Had a nice time visiting with my EM heads today. Had a chance to see beautiful workin progress on Mike’s Gottlieb Sing Along restoration ….it’s amazing. Lots of hand graining and polishing on the metals.

Speaking on hands, I have a nice burn from barely kissing the soldering iron, but at least his Q16 drive transistor on IJ is transiting again, lol….even at the expense of my blistered skin

Bought my Abra from him a couple years ago. I am really really not a topper guy, but Damn if Mike's home made toppers aren't cool as Hell.

Mike is the master of homemade toppers. I’m not much of mod guy, but I do respect the effort planning and ingenuity involved.

Saw one of these at his place yesterday…

Long ass day yesterday….but the weather was gorgeous. Headed the wrong way home and took 30 minutes to figure that out, lol. 5am arrival back home. Pretty cooked….
Had a good visiting with friends, and taking in the gorgeous MN summer scenery.
Kicking off lake season with Fish Tales….

Tough ass move today. Full head extraction on a Woz….stairway too narrow. What I thought would take 30 minutes turned into 2 hours, but someone is totally stoked now, so it’s worth it….

A few special EM offerings have popped up….PM if interested.

1) Gottlieb Central Park. ODO. Shows about 6000 plays. This a gorgeous, unadulterated original. Shinny inside and out….red buttons not even worn.

2) Gottlieb Egghead…very fun and challenging game. I’ve owned two of these over the years, this one appears very nice as well…

I doubt either of these will priced in 60’s dollars

Looks nice! I have a really nice High Hand, but I have no experience working on this era of pins. May need to give you a call and pick your brain a bit, depending on if I find anything wrong.

Anytime. The beauty with these beasts is you can practically visually inspect everything; very simple design and components but spaghetti logic. Problems are usually misaligned or dirty switches and bound up mechs.
