About 3 Months ago I picked up this game on Ebay - it was in Belfast, Northern Ireland which i think put folks off it as transport to UK mainland is ££. Luck had it that an associate had a Van coming to London that week and it was transported over as a favour!! I've owned 2 other games and learnt on them. One is still with me as i get it working 100% ( almost there ). It didn't have any major work required. This has been a learning curve for me, coming in with no experience but a head that wont give up! So i thought I would document the restoration of this game. Hopefully I can get some pointers along the way. Or be dragged before the courts for "Crimes against Pinball"...lets see.
The machine belonged to a chap for 15 years, he never got round to working on it. On first site it seemed to have little restoration work done to it. The playfield paint is down to wood above the Pop bumpers. The Body is coated in what i imagine to be 40 years of Nicotine, the Playfield is also in great need of a clean.
Im posting this first post 3 months in and will retrospectively post images until i get up to date with where i am now.
These initial images show the game as it came to me. It powered on but did little else at first. More on that later...
Looking forward to peoples comments and advice.
thanks for your help
