I just wrapped up my Centaur II playfield swap over the weekend and thought I'd share some pics. This is my second full playfield swap after completing Flash Gordon last year and I have to say that this one was quite a bit easier. Only a single playfield vs. 2, less flippers and pops, and a much more simplistic playfield layout.-plus it helps having a swap under my belt already.
I swapped in a new CPR playfield and mirrored plastic set, new legs, new drops, new playfield posts, new flipper bats,new pop bumper caps and lane guides, and many other replacement parts thanks mostly to Pinball Resource. I tumbled all the metal parts, regrained the rails, and cleaned everything that could use cleaning. I also touched up/cleaned up the cabinet and put on a new coin door sticker and rebuilt the driver board with new caps. I'm very happy with how it turned out. It's amazing how great the artwork is on these classic Bally games! The only thing I'm still considering doing is replacing my lamp boards with Alltek's so that I can add LED's to the inserts.-I get flickering with my stock boards.
I didn't take as many pics of the process as I did with my Flash Gordon swap, but the pictures I have are up on Photobucket:
