Here's an extreme Fathom restoration I picked up about a year ago. Like many restorations, it wasn't 100% complete, so I finished the job. Plays lightening fast

Quoted from Hellfire:

Very nice Fathom, mine has a pretty nice original cabinet but i plan to repaint it i want to add a few colors some highlighting airbrushing and pearls to make mine realy pop.
Im currently working on a centaur for a customer that will be the first cabinet restoration with automotive pearls and airbrushing, @$100 a quart its hurting the pocketbook a bit lol. and fathom will need 7 colors.

Glad you like it! My Fathom is more "blinged out" than my Centaur restoration, but my Centaur restoration is nicer overall (has one of the new Big Time cabinet's).

The Paragon in the middle of my Fathom/Centaur I believe to be HUO. It was in climate controlled storage for a very long time and the owner had a "free play" button installed. That, coupled with 0 wear on the PF (and NO mylar around the slings), make me think it's HUO. No fade, cabinet is spotless inside (and it wasn't restored...just vacuumed

I like restorations, but there's nothing like a natural beauty!

Quoted from pinster68:

So that's where the NOS Paragon Playfield went. Jealous. If your Centaur needs a playfield I'll trade you my CPR one for it.
Naturally if you ever want to sell the Paragon I'll be here.

Hey Brian,

My Centaur already has a CPR PF (http://s1205.photobucket.com/user/snaroff/library/Centaur?sort=2&page=1).

The NOS Paragon PF looks a little cheesy by itself, so a pinball buddy plans to make me a fancy frame for it with lights/ornaments. Should look cool when it's done.

I'm going to be in NY/NJ next week...I have a tight schedule, but one of these days it would be great to get a tour of your collection and play some pinball!

Here's a question: Fathom has 2 insert arrows labeled "Trap ball when lit, Release ball when blinking". On my Fathom, the right/green side works as you would expect. Unfortunately, the left/blue side does nothing during gameplay. In test mode, the lights appear to work (i.e. they blink). I thought this may be a board issue, but I'm fairly certain the malfunction happens with both original & repro boards. I also corresponded with another Fathom owner and he says his example does the same thing. Can you guys tell me what yours does? If it works fine, any ideas on what would cause this?...kind of obscure issue.

Thanks for any help!

Quoted from Hellfire:

I got my long awaited upgrade in the mail from CPR last week.
Look at the difference in colors compared to the old one.
now comes the wait for the playfield to cure several months then i can sand & eliminate the wood outlines then re-clear. cant wait
I also have new plastics, posts, sockets, drop targets, bumper caps and switches etc

Looks great! I love my CPR Fathom PF…colors are brilliant.
