Bought a Flash Gordon project for $400 a few years ago and have been slowly hunting down parts to restore it. With this hardtop I finally have everything! Even found a perfect original backglass.

Nice Hardtop

Picked this up several months ago and finally got around to getting it from my buddy's garage and into my basement. It needs a serious cleanup and lots of TLC. Comes with a spare playfield that I may hardtop. It needs a backglass and led displays since it has none. Just had the soundboard rebuilt and have to do some board work from acid damage. It will be somewhat of a long road, but hopefully well worth it in the end. Obviously needs paint and stencils as well but that may wait.

I may hardtop

Get one now if you plan on doing this. FG Hardtops are limited to what I have in Stock. I do not plan on producing more.

Starting to order some parts for my FG. I will be rebuilding the three flippers with kits from Pinballlife. I don't find any drop target rebuild kits around, but mine obviously need work. Does anyone know which coil sleeves are used for the drop target coils? They look to be a larger diameter than "usual". I have not taken one apart yet to measure. Prefer to order from Pinballlife if possible since I have a sizable cart started.

They must have recently just added rebuild kits for this era game. When I did my Ballys, they didn't have them...When I shop out this era game, I usually go to pbresource.com as they have more of the parts needed for these older games. For the drop target coil sleeves, I believe you can use the large diameter sleeve WLL-03-7068. Check out pics here: http://www.pbresource.com/coilsleeve.html

I'm not sure the pinball life has this diameter sleeve, but you can always email Terry to ask him.

I believe the correct coil for the large drop target reset (n-prefix) is a 5/8" diameter by 2" length. But you can buy the 2 3/8" length, and trim it down.

I recently used these for Centaur drop assemblies and should be the same in Flash Gordon.

Awesome information to all who responded. When I have a moment to get back into this I will be able to source properly. Appreciate it.
