I don't really write a lot of posts, but I think the EM's need some more attention here. I'm in the middle of 2 restorations on my Flip Flops, which I am then going to flip. Wanted to let all FF owners know that there is a cabinet stencil now available if you want to re-do your machine. I worked with Pinball Pimp out of Florida and he did great work on the stencils. I paid for the artwork, so you can benefit now by contacting him for the stencils.

If anyone is interested I can post more pics and issues with the cabinet restorations. Here's an early look. And yes, if you zoom in closely I did add the original splatter back in.

BTW, the color is an off-white, creamy color. The orange/red is Rustoleum Harvest Orange matte and flat black.

Thanks for the posting the pics. My game was fine until I didn't play if for 6 months. I need to spend so time on it and get it working again. I did replace some of the inserts. It is a fun game.

Just wanted everyone to know I have a Flip Flop in nice shape.
Does need some work.

He barely plays, and needs cleaned. Someone got happy with some sticky lube. Just set it up in the entry and it’s waiting it’s turn in the shop.

All that work & you did not go the extra little bit & pull the side rails when you painted the cab?

No, I didn't. I think it's easier to clean that off than to pull the rails. I'll let you know. Thanks.
