This is the second to last pinbot playfield I have left. So I wanted to do some customizing on it. Never liked the way the planets looked. They kind of blended into the playfield and you really did notice it was even a solar system. Wanted to give it a new look. So I customized the solar system with art. All inserts are very visible when backlit. It's a perfect repro field. Now with 3 or 4 layers of extra clearcoat added to it. I really like the new look.

Awesome looking! You out did yourself again

very cool...nice job

I bought 5 of these fields from CPR (when they had them for sale) that had fish eyes in the clearcoat (easy fix for me). Traded off 3 of them. I have one normal one left that I added bonus clearcoat to. Kept it original.... and decided to do something unique with the last. If I had a pinbot, i'd put this one in.

I'd love to put it in mine....... Super cool!

probably will be going up for sale or trade in the near future, since I don't have a pinbot.

Thank you for not removing Pluto

#9 3 years ago

Looks really good!

#12 3 years ago

here's a pic of what an original one looks like to compare.

Damn it CaptainNeo, now my CPR playfield looks inadequate

#14 3 years ago

well you can buy this one, or send me yours and i'll do the same thing on yours.

#15 3 years ago

That's fricken nice Neo. I don't know where you come up with your ideas, but you have come up with some really great ones. Rock on!

thanks, for trying new things, I can really only do it on fields I actually own. that way if it turns out great, people have the option to get those customs done on their fields when they send them to me.

#20 3 years ago

I have one more layer of clear to add to this, and then it's done. Open for trades if you are interested. I don't have a pinbot anymore, so let me know what you have.

open to

Zaccaria parts
NOS or nice used playfields Especially (escape from the lost world & Alien poker)
original Zankor backglass
nice original Devil Riders backglass

or open to other options. + or - cash with trade options.

been getting some requests to put a price on this to buy outright. I guess $900 + shipping (or free to pickup). For those that are interested. It's pretty much done now. In the pics, I got some glare from the camera flash in spots. Now the clear has been leveled out and ready to be buffed and sold.

#22 3 years ago

Put the final layers of clear on tonight. Came out great. It's ready to be buffed and go in a game.

Uranus looks great!
Actually the whole thing is really cool. Nice work!

that's because I keep it really clean. really get in there and wash it out.

#25 3 years ago

actually I lowered the price on this to $850 on this, on my facebook page, so figured i'd offer it here as well.

#26 3 years ago

Just buffed out the playfield. All done and ready to go out the door. Retook some pictures, now that it's done, doesn't get the hints of glare in the pictures.

#27 3 years ago

the new pics look a lot better, now that there isn't any flash glare.

Will the insert lamp shine thru the paint?

#31 3 years ago

yes it illuminates perfectly when backlit. all planets and the sun look great backlit. I can try to get a pic of it, but the camera doesn't do well when trying to backlite something.

#32 3 years ago

i'll try and shoot a pic backlit right now, lets see how it goes.

#33 3 years ago

actually got a fairly good shot of them backlit. Here's one with flash and one without.



#34 3 years ago

That is so fricking awesome. I almost wish the pinbot I'm helping a friend redo needed, or he wanted to spend the money on this. it would almost be worth all the work it would take to install. GLWS again awesome work.

#35 3 years ago

really nice job on this Neo!!!!

#36 3 years ago

thanks. It was a trial project that actually turned out better than I expected.

#37 3 years ago

Here only to say this is awesome.

#38 3 years ago

thanks. and your local, so you can pick it up for nearly free.

#39 3 years ago

I also, have a CPR pinbot field, with 3 layers of extra clear. Normal, new CPR repro. I'll let go for $850 as well. Last 2 pinbot fields I have left.

#40 3 years ago

Wow, that looks incredible.

#42 3 years ago

I love pinbot. This thing makes me want to go looking for one with a trashed field to put this in. Nice work.

#43 3 years ago

I wish I had the money for it and my Pinbot has a near perfect playfield.

#45 3 years ago

Oh yeah this old thing...ebay you say..huh

#46 3 years ago

yup, figured someone would have taken it way before this. Had a ton of interest but nobody pulled the trigger.

#47 3 years ago

This looks fantastic, I have owned my Pinbot since 1992? so the playfield is good but not perfect. GLWTS.

#48 3 years ago

most have at least a little wear around the squares...that's typical with Pinbot.
