After a very long time of searching and many disappoints along the way congo is on the way home. More pics to come but it plays with no errors and is in pretty nice shape overall just needs my treatment to be in my collection but it has a ton of new stuff including all new plastic set ,playfield Window, ramps,mantis weldment,rebuilt pops, bunch other new stuff also .i have old plastics and playfield window that are in good shape and ill probably sell to get a cliffys set and leds . 1429482005498.jpg

Definitely a difficult one to acquire as seems everyone wants one and not many for sale , glad a friend told me about this and my patience paid off as ive been waiting for months but glad i did bc of all the new parts

#4 4 years ago

I have all the old plastics which are fine and very usable and old play field window. It has lots of new stuff but thats all the old stuff I guess was worth keeping.

I will it was apparently shopped few hundred games ago but its not up to my standard so im doing a complete tear down and led it . Sometimes I wish I wasn't so picky so I can play it but I like my pins super clean and everything working like new. If I cld get it in the house id start on it but the heavy heavy rain is holding me up till tomorrow evening it looks like .i sld have it done in next few days since it dont need anything (at least what I can see) hopefully I have everything done and ready by the time the cliffys arrive so I can slap it back together .

Ill take the jump ramp protector what is the volcano for ? I dont think I need it as I have new mantis chute?

#12 4 years ago

42000000 lol

#13 4 years ago

you probably don't need the volcano base. The base is a strengthener as the chute is fastened down with 3 thin lugs and over time move and weaken, this just firms everything up.

#14 4 years ago

How do u get 10 percent off ? Ill take the one piece tho

ive got this base, and fits perfect. highly recommended.

as for the cliffys protectors. i installed 3 of them, but didnt put the one at the back on... didnt really think it needed it, and looks better without, but of course its all personal.

Ill probably put iit on bc this playfield looks to be really really nice especially after I wax her up

#19 4 years ago

Started shopping it out, it was done recently but im doing everything to my standards . I can see why this game is so popular it has quite a crazy layout underneath everything including 2 diverters and to stopping up post just in the back plus lots of cool lanes .only thing i cld use is some lower play field side decals if any one has them or u can make them let me know but they aren't horrible. 20150421_230035.jpg20150421_230046.jpg

#20 4 years ago

How's the breakdown of the topside?

#21 4 years ago

Now were getting somewhere . This game has to have the record for most lane guides lol.this is y the wifevlove when I get a new pin lol20150422_064040.jpg20150422_063812.jpg20150422_063800.jpg

Quoted from Blackbeard:

Its not to bad they all are the same to me . It just makes me mad because every time I get a pin owner says I just shopped it and it wont need nothing for a while ..... lol yea I bet I guess maybe im just to picky but everyone who has gotten a pin from me has been very impressed with the cleanliness and how they play so I guess im doing something right lol.i take alot of pride in my expensive toys and I love doing it .

#23 4 years ago

Should be a beauty when its done 20150422_064716.jpg20150422_064706.jpg

#29 4 years ago

Congrats BigD! Scoring your target pin is one of the greatest feelings, Enjoy!

#30 4 years ago

Yea i think its the best pin under 4k that u can get plus add thats its fairly rare and u have quite a great pin

#31 4 years ago

while you got the slingshot plastics off, dont put those ridiculous metal washers back on.. i have no idea why they still use them, even Stern... i put some pegi plastic washers on all my slings.... 7/8in or 1inch.
cliffy green sleeves look good too. imo

#32 4 years ago

#35 4 years ago

All cleaned and waxed turned out pretty dang sharp unfortunately the cliffys wont get here till next week but I still have a ton of metal to polish and ramps to clean and fllame polish so I have enough to keep me busy till they get here.20150424_205256.jpg20150424_205217.jpg20150424_205146.jpg

#36 4 years ago

Are you doing it in black or white rubbers? I've had it in both and personally think the white looks so much better.

#37 4 years ago

keeping it black for now which is odd for me but later on ill change it to the titian clear and color silicone ones and change out the star post for some colors and put the colored post on also .I just wanna get it together and play lol and I will get a feel for it and add some mods later on also but for now ita be fine

#38 4 years ago

Got it together been playing nonstop and what a great pin and its playing crazy fast . Amazing what a proper shop and clean can do of course I got tired waiting on the cliffys and they show up today lol but im waiting on some other things and ill just tear it down again and install everything. 20150429_215332.jpg20150429_012903.jpg20150429_215534.jpg20150429_215522.jpg

Yea I understand now why when I was looking for one everyone wanted 3500 to 4500 for a nice all ready done one .I wouldn't sell mine for that but I can see why because its a great pin and hard to find . It has that one more game syndrome like bsd and ft but much better .mines not going anywhere unless I can can get the mint one someone on here has that im talking to lol.
