I will document the process on this machine. I love the theme and artwork, and cannot wait to push it a little past the original.
Here's the starting point..
Good, not great...Pf is junk. Harness and boards are pretty clean.

Beautiful! Wish I could find a Centaur...

#19 72 days ago

I bought these legs from pinball life, and they are nice, but I am not going to use them. Too dark for what I have going on. May use them on a Seawitch.
I have a new set of chrome legs coming, which I will have powdered in the black chrome like everything else
Also, glad to have the rest of studs done...

Not my cup of tea, but to each their own.

#21 72 days ago

You should put studs in for the last bolt on the side rails. It would prevent all slap saves, lol.

looking cool!

I understand it's not for everyone. That's OK with me. Made a little more progress. Waiting on new flipper switches and power supply rebuild kit from Big Daddy's. Anybody know where to get the correct Bally decal for this coin door?

#44 67 days ago

Dude you are crazy!! But that's how i like my pinside members Carry on!

#45 67 days ago

Now that's sharp

#46 67 days ago

I appreciate that. Can't wait to get backbox on cab. Should have it in CC by Sunday.

#47 67 days ago

I needed to be certain the spikes were mounted securely. This is what I came up with. First, layout centers on the stencil, and transfer them to cabinet with an awl.
After cc I drilled 1/8" holes, 1/2" deep.

IMG_20170217_110723475 (resized).jpg

#48 67 days ago

The spikes came threaded to accept #6 screws, so I bought #6 threaded rod. Put a drop of gel super glue on rod, screwed on the spike, and cut it 3/8" exposed.
Repeat about 400 times....

IMG_20170211_131553379 (resized).jpg

#49 67 days ago

Modified a 1/4" driver to screw them in the holes. Put a drop of super glue here too.

I appreciate what CPR does for us, but damn, whoever is doing the clear coat, please put a rollover star upside-down when spraying. It's an hour of cleanup to get these working correctly. Please.
