    Beautiful work. I wished I lived closer. I'd love to watch and learn from you.

    #52 3 years ago

    Nice. I always find it interesting how much smaller the older machines are in comparison to the newer sterns.

    #53 3 years ago

    Wow. Looks incredible.

    #54 3 years ago

    Damn, looks like you flew through that EK restore, what is the real time time line it took you for this one?

    #55 3 years ago

    Beautiful machine, congrats.

    I pumped so many quarters into that machine when I was a kid, loved it.

    took about 45 hours.

    Excellent work, looks better than it did when they were new.

    I believe the playfield is the same size.

    I finally found a new set of plastics, but it's only 10 pieces. None of the extras. I was dying to get the extras, but you have to take what you can get. I'm still looking to find someone who can paint mine for me since I don't have the painting resources available to me. Should be lots of new parts coming in the mailbox in the next few days. I just hope mine turns out half as good as yours.

    I got plastics that I don’t see on the game. What ones are you looking for?
    I put red posts by slings.

    Digging your colors for the rubbers and acorn nuts, very nice choices.

    The ones on top of the shelf in the second picture. I have everything that goes on the playfield, I believe. The ones in the pic were extra promo piece from CRP. I was gonna try to get my hands on so.e and use it as a topper.

    See the pictures in the previous post, one of those plastics goes above the center red stand-up target in front of the lower pop bumper.
    Nice work by the way!

    Ahh. Of course. My mistake. Been reading too many playfield restore threads lately I guess.
