Quoted from NinJaBooT:

Ouch, buddy wanted 200 each

They may be worth that, I don't know. but I think that would be on the high side of their value. I don't know about Table Tennis, but the Darts version gets old fast. It's quite boring. However, I like it for it's uniqueness.

BTW, I was taking USD.

I had to have this gem ... Don't see these pop up often.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Nice Dogies! I have one of these in the storage unit waiting it’s turn. Unfortunately, mine had it’s cabinet art stripped and primered in dark gray by the previous owner. Could I ask you to take some straight on photos of the cabinet when you get a chance? I’d appreciate it!

Thanks!

I can but mine was shot as well ... Seems most of these are.
I would recommend the pics on IPMDB That is what I used on top of the old that I had to work with.
I normally wouldn't paint a cabinet but I had no choice on this one.

Here's another recent restoration. Still getting a few small bugs out of it but basically plays now. Sample game with 28000 plays on the meter and it looks like it. Did a few minor touch-ups but this game was pretty clean. Fun late 70s Gottlieb multiplayer. Great eye candy on that artwork too!

I started doing scheduled preventive maintenance and repair on all my basement wedgeheads recently. I managed to complete 15 out of 25 from the line up already. My C-37 plays better than it ever did. Just 10 more to go!

#11315 64 days ago

Our Night Rider EM is one of our favorite games, on the "do not sell" list.

#11317 63 days ago

Yes honey...
I know we have to finish the shopping.
But this aint gonna fix itself.
Gimme a minute and I’ll get it outta the kitchen...

I’m curious, what is on the guys nose? Is that snow or frostbite?

#11323 60 days ago

North Star is such a great looking game, one of my favorites. Way to go Phillips88, nice acquisition!

Wow, great North Star. Jealous too.

Decided to try clearing a game after all the posts I'd seen on Pinside and Alladins Castle was the winner - about 5 coats on here, mostly due to a lot of insert leveling - a lot of work but worth it.

Merry Christmas Darcy and to everyone else!

#11330 56 days ago

Yes Merry Christmas Darcy and all!

And nice photo - i’ll be taking down Atlantis and putting up Abra over the holiday too

Darcy – remind me does your strange world playfield have wear around all of the numbers? I am close to finishing up some vinyl protector decals for mine like I did for spin out – so if you’re interested let me know

Merry merry

I'm shopping a Royal Flush for a friend and working on the head first. This is what I found when I pulled the head relay board back.

Unfortunately the playfield and, especially the cabinet, are not this nice. Needless to say it will be a blast to play when I'm done with it.

Just an incredible part of your great collection Andrew as the last of the GTB EMs. Great to see you have the cab back together.

Almost finished refurb of 4 Square. Need to find new back glass and have 1 annoying electrical issue. But play field was really rough and came out much better than I expected.

Picked up a non working Grand Prix a few weeks ago and finally got it shopped out and working! The kids were actually fighting over who gets to play it.

Does anyone here know the best place to source a new backdoor lock on a Williams Grand Prix or have a pic of what the lock is supposed to look like? Mine was drilled out and was missing the latch. thanks!

Quoted from MikeS:

It's a standard 7/8" lock you can get in a lot of places. A couple of examples:

Thanks. I figured that was the case but when I tried a 7/8 lock it didn't line up right. It was too high and hit the bracket. The hole on the door is about 1/2" too high which has me puzzled.

IMG_20190121_151125 (resized).jpgIMG_20190121_152434 (resized).jpg

#11348 28 days ago

Maybe your game has the wrong door.

In those instances, where the door fits but the lock doesn’t, or it doesn’t have a lock, I use a drywall screw as the lock.

#11349 28 days ago

The Locking arm on Modern 7/8 locks, is usually the problem. If you have an old lock that has a shorter lock arm or you can grind it down oh, it would likely work. I have seen this issue several times. I usually try to recycle the old one if I've removed an old lock. I usually use standard PBR locks that are all keyed alike.

#11350 27 days ago

Just put about 100 hours into this one.

It's not quite finished though.....
