Big project, but I think BSD is a great game, so it's good to see one being restored.
Playfield looks very nice.

Good luck, I'll read this topic if you'll post your progress.

Quoted from Pinballer73:

Now that I've got this far, do I stick with this playfield or install a new Mirco playfield? Having trouble deciding which way to go with this. I could complete the rebuild, enjoy the game and then sell it with the view to buy a better example. Or go nuts and replace the playfield in this game. Each time I think I've made up my mind which direction to go, I have second thoughts. If the cabinet was in better condition I would go all out.

That's a hard choice indeed. I think the playfield looks quite good (the inserts are quite a common issue, but I don't think it'll be a big problem unless the game will see intense play?).
You can also install a new playfield, and find another game with a good cabinet and change the playfields and sell that other game.
