She's pretty hammered. Not being rude just stating a fact. The cabinet would be a tear down, sand, bondo, sand, paint and decals. Most people can handle that piece and in the US would cost ~$400 to do. The playfield is another story. $800 - $900 for the playfield purchase and do you choose to do the swap ourself or pay someone. Looking at around a $1000 to pay someone. And trust me, if you do a playfield you'll want a complete plastic kit and new ramps. Restore total ...you'll have about ~$3500 into that machine now add your initial cost onto the restore cost. Does it make sense considering your pin prices are outrageous compared to ours? Now does restoring that make you money if you sold it restored to get you closer to a title you want? Just another factor to consider. I think the prior advice given to just play it because you'll likely move on to another is solid Congrats and welcome to the sickness.
