That's called monogamous player I believe

What's your technique to get the black inserts repainted? I've hand painted them and they usually turn out well, but yours look almost perfect.

Thought I'd post my Gottllieb Strange world and my Hit the Deck. Both are excellent examples of the games.

Thank you.

I have never noticed the ring bumper configuration on a pin before like along the sides of Daisy May.

So, ya'll're going to think I'm insane, but..

I sent the PF off to Neo to have him restore it. Cost about 3x what the entire game can sell for, but for me, this game's a keeper. The PF was in pretty good shape, but had horrid planking up in the white clock area, and MANY sunken and loose inserts. Neo touched everything up, fixed a few art issues, added one thing (see the outlanes? Explanation below..) and cleared it. It's been mounted on display for the last three months as I let the clear set.

The outlanes - so all the owners before me kept moving the outlane posts, putting them in various places. So. Many. Holes that by the time *I* got the game, all the holes were stripped, they were so close together. I was torn about what to do, until I thought of my Twilight Zone . I told Neo to route out the holes, so I can put in one of the adjustable plates under the PF like WPC games have. This will (1) Allow me to somewhat adjust the outlane posts when/if needed, and (2) look like it's from factory that way. Before, no matter where the post was, you could see parts of the other holes that were created by previous owners.

Doodle Bug done. First large area PF repaint. Not perfect but looks great from the players position.

It is quite nice!
Repaint on pf that beaten up are always a pain, let alone that size!

Well done!

Starting to clean up the Wiggler. Lots of old brown wax coming off, revealing plenty of original gloss and nice bright colors. Using Isocol on makeup removal pads and very gentle magic eraser on the tinwear.

Is there a dedicated cleaning thread here? A bunch of do's and don'ts would be helpful and before and after shots can be pretty satisfying

Here is a definite don’t!

But I do miss that feeling of bringing a playfield back to its original beauty - enjoy doing so to yours!

Just finished up a Jacks Open that was left for dead. Huge thanks to SirScott for helping me find a replacement backglass, and Tyamry for being willing to part with his. With each EM rebuild, I get a little braver, and tackle a little more. This one was a full-out mechanical rebuild that took a few months. Decided to keep the playfield and cabinet original though. I don't trust my artistic skill enough to attempt a playfield restoration quite yet. Still, I'm happy with the results!

Marvelous video, enjoyed it during lunch. Excellent ball control I thought, beats me.

I would do the same if it were mine. Good looking game!
