They look great. Did you have them done by Chestnut?

#209 4 years ago

Thank you.

Quoted from boo32:

Thank you. Yes he did. Three month long wait but the price is fair and the results are great.

No I just need my apron that's being silkscreened back. Three months and counting on that too.

#210 4 years ago

Is the apron silkscreener someone who offers this as a service or just a deal you set up? I had not heard of anyone doing that.

Chestnut does very nice work.

Chestnut does very nice work.

Pinsider toro gave me the lead from his mati hari thread. I'll PM you.

That chrome is purdy.

#213 4 years ago

Skins, thanks for taking the time to document your project.
I will taking on FG restoration this summer.
Keep it up I will be referring back to this thread

#214 4 years ago

Thank you

More chrome goodness. The prettiest lockdown receiver I have ever seen

Scratched the damn coin door skin. $&@!&? The coin bezel slipped out of my hands. Oh well. I know I need a 3rd matching pricing insert and it's all smudged up from getting into place but it's installed.

Just a small update but I was so excited I had to share. After 4 months, I finally got my apron back from. Stunning. Looks factory fresh.

Nice job on the chrome and the apron. Don't sweat the scratch on the coin door. It's a pinball, we are men, scratches are like scars.

Well I finally have something worth updating. With spring here and summer around the corner, my resto stuff has taken a back seat. I have some switch adjusting and I lost my strobe when I reconnected everything that needs looked into but she's 90% complete and back together. Such a pretty game. Please excuse my messy work area.

Quick game play. I know, I should have rotated the camera. Also, that's not me chimp flipping. Game is 99% done. Two back box bulbs not working and I need to adjust the coin door to close fully. Such a pretty game and the hardest of my previous 5 restores. I would take a wpc restore over a early ss restore any day. So glad it's complete but so rewarding.

#223 4 years ago

Nice job man. Flash Gordon is a gem, I really enjoy mine. Fast and brutal.

#224 4 years ago

Stunning, great job. Love the colors of this game and of course the chrome looks awesome.

#225 4 years ago

Thanks for the compliments Aurich and jawjaw. I appreciate it. Played about 30 games last night. What a blast!

#226 4 years ago

Yes, awesome work, been following this restore.

#227 4 years ago

I've also been following as well. Beautiful restore! I always wanted a FG since playing one as a kid.

Skins, did you get this FG up to 100% functional? A real looker.

Quoted from KevinCPR:

Just interjecting for sake of terminology. I see people calling this wire on the bottom of the playfield "the ground braid" in seemingly thousands of places. It's becoming common terminology, and it's scarier with all the newcomers to the hobby trying to learn the circuits...
The stapled bare wire going to all the bulbs on the bottom of the playfield IS NOT A GROUND BRAID.
It is the + (positive) voltage supply.
The bulb driver board is your ground. The transistors **pull the bulbs to ground** to light them.
Just saying, if this becomes commonspeak, it will be shocking the number of people who tie something, or connect something, to that line - a tester, a mod, a jumper wire, a bulletproofing wire, etc... thinking it is ground... at best you're going to pop a fuse. At worst, something is going to fry.
REMEMBER: The ground braid is in the *cabinet* (an actual braid - not a wire - that goes to metal things to keep them grounded - like the coin door, the cabinet rails, the plunger, etc).
Know the difference!

Learning something new today. And knowing is half the battle....
