Right ramp before pic:

Little surface rust on the spring steel and the ramp protectors are beat up so wanted to take it all apart

The problem is the ramp protectors are riveted on and the press won't work. But if you use a small c clamp with a hole on one side you can fit the die in and just use the c clamp to press on the other side. I'm sure there is a better way to to this but it worked without having to buy anther tool!

I enjoy making new ramp flaps too. When you are done it looks much better.

Note new flap in pic is for the upcoming left ramp

I don't know about you all but i f*****g hate cleaning the ball trough. But you have to get it as nice as you can or all ball trails and dirt will come back quicker. I sand it all down buff the parts I can on the machine buffer then try and buff the inside by hand. It's a pain and I still haven't discovered a trick to get it perfect but better than it was

Do you have a big ultrasonicator?

I have a small one and next big tool purchase will be an extra large one to help with big mechs.

Looking great brother (as always)!

I'm pretty much done. Dropped the pf in just doing some final adjustments to dial it in

Coaster suggested to put another bulb in under the left ramp. I didn't want to do more work to the game but it turned out really nice. Before and after below

Great job / post. You are very talented and detailed.. Thanks

Stunning! Dibs!!!!!!!!!

It just amazes me to see people put that much detail and work into a pin. I wish I had the talent and patience for this. I am just slowly chipping away at my Addams and dread the day the playfield is released.

make sure you dont sell this one for so cheap like you did some of the others you have worked on...

Awesome, I love it when people fix up underdogs!

Really useful post, thanks!

I'm working on putting my Flintstones back together, and it came to me in pieces, so this will be helpful!

Love the lit buildings.

Incredibly simple pin to shop, topside wise. Love the art and play. Wife loves it too, which is an oddity.
