Nice clean up on the Abra. Attention to detail on the inside of the game is always appreciated.

Quoted from TICTAC:

I just finished cleaning this Sample #3.

#12418 1 year ago

Cool. Make sure to keep us up to date with pics. If you weren't so far away I'd give you a hand as lockdown is making everybody bored. I'd enjoy bogging and sanding a cab for something to do. In saying that, I should get off Pinside now and go and adjust some switches or something on my pin...

Just finished restoring this Sky Jump. This is my 2nd Sky Jump. Last one i did a full restore but this one came out better. I had sellers remorse as soon as i sold my last one. This one is not leaving

Awesome looking SJ. Wade Krause playfield I assume. Noted that the lane guides do not have factory in dents. You can add those yourself by taking a round screw driver shaft or other tool of correct diameter and striking the edge of the slot at a shallow (15 degree?)angle as shown here. Also, I see a few scratches on the left bumper body. That would really bother me after all that detailed effort. Again, excellent work!

yes. Those pop bumpers came from PBR and as soon as they came out of the bag they were scratched. New ones on order!
Thanks for the PF info. I will try it

It looks like you will give Wade, PBR and the boys in Australia some business. Very nice full resto candidate.

PBR for sure, and new plastics from Australia too. I think the playfield's in quite good shape once I clean it. Full cabinet overhaul, though.

Thanks, DaMoib! I'll be hitting you up for technical advice as always, haha (and on Big Hit and Jungle first, haha)!

Gee Raff, where do you find all these old pins? You're making me jealous. Good onya for restoring them though. At least you're getting stuck into it. That will look great once you've given her a new coat of paint. Least it's not raining hard over there. Yet.

Does that neon reflect on the playfield glass?

Yes some, DMDs all had invisiglass. Wired the room all with switched sockets and neons are WiFi enabled, “hey google turn off arcade lights” dims the room instantly .

Hello my name is Peter
Pit for friends
I come from Germany
My first Pinball is a royal flush
And after 30 years it was time to repaint the playfield.
The photos were taken without the glass pane.
