Been playing my players FBC more than any of my other games. Ill run off a 2 or 3 million point game, then get my ass handed to me in the next game. There is an addictive quality to this particular table, love the non stop action. And also love whacking the snot out of the captive ball! I put a clear acrylic ball behind the captive ball and it picks up the light from the red arrow insert, looks like a real fireball in there. Great game.

I have a CPR Gold Eight Ball Deluxe playfield that I decided not to use. Would like to trade it for a really nice Fireball Classic. PM me if interested.

Tried the red 555 from PBR, like it but still needs a little more light in areas. Going with shorter legs in the near future,but for now, just love playing the thing.

I acquired a FBC not to long ago and just got around to shopping it out and getting it running again. It looks very nice and seems to be playing fine but there is one thing I'm curious about. There is a pulsating type of background sound that plays constantly, even in attract mode - very annoying. Is this normal? I wouldn't think it was supposed to play in attract mode. If so, is there anyway to turn it off?

Hey all
I have had my fireball classic for almost 3 years now and haven't had many problems with it but as of recently my disk has stop spinning and I was wondering if anybody has encountered it before and what it typically is. Thanks in advance

Finally someone made a repro backglass for fireball classic. CPR did an excellent job on making this. Thanks CPR.

Alright guys, I have recreated the back-glass artwork, recreated the side cabinet art (still needs to be tested), added front cabinet artwork, my playfield is good enough in my opinion so I am not going to spend the countless hours recreating the artwork for that. I do however want to create Custom Instruction Cards/Apron Cards as I do not like the plain old white ones. Has anyone thought over what they would include on them besides the stereotypical rules and game icon with freeplay or for amusement only on it?

This is the one I picked up a few weeks ago. The guy bought it new in 1985 and it’s been in his basement ever since. Still has the faded glass although I didn’t even realize it until I got it home and started reading up on it. A few marks but in great condition overall considering it’s pretty much all original. Runners are new and maybe the moulding around the edges as it seems to be red in the pictures I’ve seen.

The cabinet is faded too, but overall, this is a VERY clean classic! Often in addition to the BG fading, it peels from the bottom. Yours seems pretty well intact. Nice Pin!

Finished with the new cards and installed them...next step is printing and installing decals, t molding, then powder coat. Enjoy the custom instruction cards / apron cards!

Anyone have any suggestions for this? It’s the part under the blue plastic Where it says release the fire gods. It’s one side that holds a pinball in place to hit the red thing which releases the ball. I know that’s a terrible description but hoping someone understands. Anywhere I can buy a repayment or will I have to make something?

I've looked for that piece myself and had no luck. I've cut one out of lexan clear plexiglass but I have not installed it yet.

My "on kicker" rollover switch is shorting out constantly and I can't seem to find a replacement switch. According to the manual its part number a390-00022-0000. Does anyone know where I can find a replacement? Is it possible to rebuild a switch if you can't find a replacement?

Got some custom rails made from carbon fibre. Was worried they might block the light but seems good and so far they seem pretty durable. Was cheaper to have made then the sets I could find online and the ones I made out of plexiglass kept breaking.
