Going to do something unusual here and post two games being worked on. One needs minor work, the other..
Blackout was picked up a week or two ago, "fully working" well you know how that goes. The machine would reboot itself when the garage furnace kicked in. The power board has a funky remote mounted cap screwed to the backbox and the other board caps are OEM. On the plus side the cabinet and playfield are pretty nice, it has new PinScore LED displays and the sound board had been recapped and has new eproms. The MPU had been worked on at one time and the 5101 is socketed so easy VRAM upgrade is in the future. Flipper links are held in place with machine screws, some plastics are warped, 2 posts are outright missing and the backglass is in need of dire assistance.
I spent the last week slowly going over it and in another week or two touchups should be done. I could have gone with a new backglass but I'm still refining my skills in this area and so far pleased with the results, have at least another week to go though before calling it good and moving on. The last two blackglass pictures were from a few days ago, things have considerably progressed since then. All the area around the space guys is done and I have started on them which is a more delicate area for work to show through.
Caps for the power board and 40 way interconnect on the way from Great Plains and other parts from Pinball Life.
Playfield and backbox lighting already converted over to Comet LEDs. Spent a some time adjusting the backboard to fit proper (someone bent the hell out of the brackets trying when they could have just used the adjusters!) and I flattened all the display cables so they were not rubbing on the glass and casting shadows on the artwork.
Not sure if I like this one; love the art and sound effects but the shot geometry is weird off the flippers. Have to wait and see once it is fully tuned up if it will be around for any period of time.
