    Spent the last week tearing my WC78 down and upgrading.

    She looks great in person. Comet LEDs really bring new life back to the old SS’s.

    Changed up the color scheme also. Replaced the orange posts with Green. And the white rubber with yellow.

    Got 2 mini projects done today.

    Phantom of the Opera - the motor on my organ was garbage and jerked around and wouldnt close or open all the way half the time. So I installed a brand new fresh motor. Was alot easier than I thought. Took me maybe 20 minutes to get the old one out and new one in.

    Also replaced the ball deflector under the organ..... this was NOT as easy. Took about 1.5 hours. Had to remove the ramp, and the entire top part of the organ.

    But it works like a champ now!

    World Cup 78 - Installed a Comet pinball LED strip to the inside apron. Lights up the flippers nice. Great little add on for about 3 bucks!

    Hey ... not pinball ... and we don’t have any Covid here ... but I got a new roof done on my 1919 project house finally. Took 3 weeks because of all the rain (it’s winter here)

    Takeaway - best not to reroof and repaint a historic house in the middle of winter. Lol

    Old and new ...

    Nice job, man! We have a concrete tile roof and have been considering metal replacement - I'm glad to see how yours came out.

    Quoted from clodpole:

    It was a mission, because it’s 3 stories high.

    But it needed to be done, the old tiles were 101 years old and brittle as heck, you stood on them and they just broke.

    I’ve stripped the whole house to the framing inside, the only things remaining are the frame, weatherboards and windows.

    Been working here since February - with a month break in the middle for Covid lockdown - really getting to use my high school woodwork skills.

    Looks great! Not sure but wondering if you have to get a special consent to change the roofing type since its an old building - I know this can be hard in England but wondering what the rules are in New Zealand.

    In heritage areas, yeah. They want to preserve the look of the area (would be the same in England). Luckily I’m not in those areas.

    My buddy lives in one of those areas, he wanted to remove his fireplaces and they made him make a replica one so it looks the same from the roadside. Made out of a steel frame, with plywood on it, and original bricks cut down to 1” thick and glued onto the ply. Looks like the real thing. But won’t fall down and kill you when there’s an earthquake.

    Generally in NZ they encourage you to remove the old fireplaces.
    1/ better for the environment
    2/ wont kill you in an EQ.

    You don’t need a permit to remove them if they are free standing (and non supporting) like my one is. Just rip em out!

    I’ve installed 2x zoned heat pumps in the place. Each room is individually controlled. Nice!

    Heat pumps are nice - I put in a geothermal system (a ground source heat pump) 16 years ago. Paid for itself in under 4 years, its been cheap heating and cooling ever since.

    Hope you post your house progress here or in a dedicated thread, it would be interesting to see it coming along.

    Doing my first real shop job. Fixing shooter lane, inserts, bumper skirts, redid the coin door, the works. Inserts stick up a bit. May have to put some more mylar on the playfield. Officially putting it back together now. Wish me luck.

    Worked on a BK for a new local Pinsider. Fixed the GI, sound cutting out and some sounds not playing (3 pin and 9 pin connectors) and display board issues it was having with the 7180 IC. Started to do bulletproof the game by replacing all the sound board and power supply capacitors and the board connectors. I still need to add NVRAM replace the CPU and driver board connectors.

    Also got him excited about playing in local tournaments once we can crank it back up.

    Good work.

    Tip: get a microfibre cloth to rest those tools on while you’re working on the playfield. Super easy to drop a tool and munt up your playfield ... I know I’ve done it ..

    Bought a nice DE Batman two weeks ago, 8 hour trek each way. The day after I got it home, it totally crapped out. Good ol PSB, and the ever-crispy CN1 & CN8 connectors.

    All fixed. Said screw it, and got the Gulf replacement board. I’ll rebuild the old one for a back up.

    Spent the rainy saturday tearing her down, cleaning, adding LEDs lamp board adaptors, LEDs, Silicone rings, and some color changes.
    Also swapped the ugly white flippers for some blingy chrome ones.

    Looking pretty good.
