Have been spending the past few months tracking down original unused Bally/Williams parts to restore this TAF to as close to NIB as I could get it. Was fortunate enough to locate an unused, cleared Sun Process playfield (with the purple mansion), original smoked ramp, plastics, miscellaneous items, and even an unused vintage jet bumper cap set, which look slightly different than the new productions. Swapped the new playfield in and assembled everything. All incandescent, the way it should be. The only thing I let go non-NOS were the little purple star posts in the front (I like the accent), the dipped bulbs, and of course the rubbers / wear items. Love how it looks and plays

That's awesome. It'll be nice when I've been doing this long enough to restore a classic instead of just buying new!

Like going back in time to new, Looks nice. Flippers are misaligned but thats easy fix.

Nicely done! I did something similar to mine with an original PF, but I didn’t go all in on the NOS. Great work

You know, I never could figure out the best position for these flippers. The flyer is completely broken. At this point, I've adjusted them to be just extensions of the lane guides.
