I've just come back from a visit to Pinball Creative, a high end EM restorer in the UK.

You can see some of my photos of the machines that owner Giacomo Malvermi has done his magic on here

The webbing on his repaints has got to be some of the WORST and heaviest webbing I have ever seen. Sorry to be mean but I have to point it out.

As most of us know, there are various degree of decay and age. Some of us (me) buy those with a couple legs in the dumpster full of decay and neglect and restore them while others do minor repairs and regular maintenance for their restore. And everything inbetween.

Nothing wrong with any of it... but honestly I was hoping for some dramatic before then after pics. I love to see pics and read the process of transforming something rotten and worthless to something beautiful and special.

Thanks for your pics of the Giacomo collection. --Sooooo nice! I wonder about the degree of restoration of those machines.

Not sure if it's the same game, but I sold/shipped Gia my restored Magic City a few years ago that was pretty sweet (though I did not put colored LEDs in the GI!) He's a great guy, very good communication, walked me through the whole process.

Not crazy about the colored LEDs.

He says Cow Poke will fetch $14000 at auction.
