Picked this up a few weeks ago. Just got finished cleaning it up, putting on new rubbers, repro plastics, and fixing some minor issues. Plays great!

My newest find after a bit of a cleanup.

Lots of plays, would have to check the meter but over 100k. The cabinet has problems, but I'm hoping to fix . Part of the bottom fell out at some point. They covered it with some scrap wood and wrapped the bottom and sides with a piece of sheet metal about 18 inches wide. I'm planning on pulling that off and fixing the bottom properly. Not sure what I will do with the nail holes in the sides.

Picked up a Space Mission with a nice cab and playfield, but a trashed backglass. Fortunately, it was one that has been reproduced. It's amazing how much more vibrant the colors are. I think it looks great!

Today's pick up. Cab has been repainted so will need a restencil. At least it's white...

Looks like I need to straighten out a bunch of those pool ball numbers, too. And triple-thick that backglass.

Nothing like the feeling of taking a broken EM and making it come to life again! This was in a sorry state when I picked it up and finally got it cleaned up and working 100%.

Just picked this up today. An El Dorado that has been in home use since 1978. I was going through the manila envelope with the instructions and schematics and found the original invoice!
