Quoted from cp1610:

Love to see DE machines getting the love they deserve every time i make a comment when i out playing pinball to a pinhead about Dataeast they roll there eyes and say their crap or just sigh in disgust. I feel they see me as the black sheep because my love of De and Gottlieb machines.

DE and 90s Gottliebs, twice the fun for half the price.

Quoted from apic7917:

I have a complete LW3 playfield that I would love to drop in a DE cabinet if anyone has one that they will sell me. Doesn't need to be a LW3 as I would probably do decals. Just needs to be from the dot matrix era. Come on fella's, help me put this thing together. Please let me know what you have

There was a guy on FB selling cabinets in Pittsburgh a while back. He had a Rocky & Bullwinkle for sale that was in pretty good shape.

Quoted from goingincirclez:

Count me in with my first DE pin:

Fell in love with this at Louisville Expo, and one turned up a couple weeks later for less. A few things to tweak, fix, and change (not a fan of the blue pf LEDs at all) but it should hang around for a while.
Can anyone tell me if a black lockdown bar is proper for this title? Seems like a lot of early DE games had them, and I see Torpedo Alley pics with either black or chrome.... but black just doesn't look right to me on this title.
If anyone is interested in trading a chrome/stainless for my black one, let me know. Otherwise I might try painting it blue or red or something.

Looks like it is supposed to be chrome:

Quoted from Bendit:

Speaking of that, what's a good price for a JP is good shape?

I've seen JP rise in the last couple of years. An average 100% working (no mods) should be around 2400-2600 IMO.

The good news about JP is that if you are patient and handy, you can usually find a deal on one. I've seen a couple out there for 1700-1900.

Quoted from Gryphun:

Other nice thing re: JP is that CPR just released a playfield plastic set.
I have also seen a couple of JP for below $2k (I would have purchased but didn't have cash at the time).

There's a whole ordeal about the JP CPR plastics. You can find that information over in the JP club thread.

Does anyone know of a person/place that recreate DE stickers/serial number tags? I'm doing a BTTF restoration and was hoping someone had some resources.

I do have all the source ones that I could recreate myself...

Hi everyone, I thought I would share some of my restored BTTF pictures (which I also have up for sale in the market).

I'm pretty happy on how this turned out!
