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.

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 7 months 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?

Thank you.

#44 7 months ago

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

#45 7 months ago

Now that's sharp

#46 7 months ago

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

#47 7 months 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 7 months 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 7 months 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.
