Here is a rarely seen or talked about machine.
Bally See Saw 1970.
Pointy people era.
In the middle of a restoration right now.
Playfield stripped and almost completely repainted.
Left with red to mask and paint.
Then key-lining and lettering.
At a standstill right now because cant come up with the right mix of colors to match the red.
Its a very nice red and I want the same.
Close enough is only for horse shoes and hand grenades.
If anybody has suggestions, pipe in!
Insert has been stripped and all components cleaned.
The cabinet is also coming along great.
Colors on that one are well matched.
Right now, practicing my splatter technique to get the right density and size of spots.
The green is the original splatter.
See Saw is my first pin ever!
Bought it about a year ago and spent about two weeks understanding it and fixing issues to make it playable.
Played it about one week.
Then tore it apart....
Now just bought a Grand Prix....
Ohoh? Whats going on?
Cab is in very good shape.
Inside cab and backbox is filty as hell.
Afraid to put my head in there.
Something might jump at me.
Backglass is flaked and reds are faded big time.
But it plays.
So this one will stay that way until See Saw is done and playing again.
Seems like i'm a sucker for punishment.
Both those machines are quite complex.
Multi Players, dual bonus units, whole bunch of bells and whistles and other devices...
Over 40 relays, 7 stepper units plus the other usual stuff in SeeSaw.
Same or more in Grand Prix.
I like It!
Ill post back when the Restoration is done.
