Item description

Just finishing up the final touches on my IJ restoration. Game was a very nice original USA game that had been in home use for over the last 15 years, and of the last 5, it's not been played at all other than my test games. Playfield is very nice, only the smallest of wear at the ball drop points from ramps and in front of the slings. No other significant wear on the playfield. Game has been completely torn down and restored to the point where it looks new, plays as good as new, but isn't a museum piece where you don't want to risk playing it for the chance it might ruin the perfection some see as necessary to call it a restoration. Here's a list of what's been done.
Cabinet was stripped of original faded decals, and cabinet was filled where needed including security bar bolt holes in front, dings on bottom edges, etc. Sanded and new licensed by WMS decals installed. These are the ones that were created from the original artwork, but with modern ink and technology. Cabinet was painted inside due to what looked like some sort of staining of the interior that would not sand out. New ground braid laid in factory pattern, new shop out chart printed and stapled, lockbar assembly cleaned, cabinet wiring harnesses cleaned, hardware has been cleaned and polished or painted as required, and new power cord installed. Flipper opto interrupters and springs were also replaced. Service box was checked and new thermistor installed. Backbox latch and floor glides installed as well as a brand new USA coindoor.

Playfield has been completely stripped on topside, cleaned, polished (with high speed drill and 3 step polishing compound and applicator system, with two coats of Carnauba wax applied and buffed to shine. All parts were cleaned and polished before reassembly including all hardware. New parts include the following: All yellow star posts, Jackpot plastic, Lost plastic for back, Right plastic ramp and decal, white rubber ring set, and Comet LED set with non ghosting LEDs for all but the flash lamps. New original instruction and pricing cards also installed. Full brass kit was ordered including new legs, leg bolts, side rails, lockdown bar, and gun was plated black nickel with brass trigger and security and mounting hardware for nice contrast. One of a kind, hasn't been done before to my knowledge!. Wireform ramps have also all been freshly brass plated. New owner can take this further with add on parts as desired. Playfield glass is so so, and has typical light scratches. I'm hoping to get a clean piece of tempered glass before the sale. Black leg protectors are currently installed with the temporary legs on the game as shown.

Original display is clean, bright, with no dead pixels. Translight is perfect and clear with no scratches or blemishes.

Boards are all original, Driver board has required repair of 3 solenoid circuits with new transistors and IC driver for that circuit. Clean repairs, no hacks, all voltages check perfectly, all features work as they should without error. C1 and Bridge rectifier also replaced while at it. game is stable and has run for hours without incident on burn it cycle and real life gameplay. (I've played it to the Billion point bonus round several times).

Cash box with spares includes new pinballs, two sets of keys, original owner's manual, operators manual, schematics.

Waiting on Comet pinball to send spare LED's for two that have failed out of the box, and making some minor adjustments to things like the kickout from mode start for better consistency of ejects. Brass legs, bolts and lockdown have not been installed, and are still in their packing from delivery.

Game will be listed in multiple channels including ebay, local craigslist, facebook marketplace and pinball specific listing sites. Local pick up preferred, but I can assist in packing for delivery as I have done dozens of times before. Shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer if they choose to do so.

Game is considered sold when I have a deposit in hand, and/or full payment in cash. I will not hold without some form of consideration.

Better pictures are coming soon, please feel free to PM with specific questions or to discuss. Not looking to trade, selling all of my collection at this point.
Thanks for looking, stay safe, and have a happy holiday season!

you really could’ve just shortened this thesis to “mostly restored, better than average condition”. then put a high end, but reasonable price. instead, you dedicated an entire paragraph just to describing the work done to the inside of the cabinet, yet didn’t include a single pic of the inside of the cabinet. and with an HEP price. i just don’t get it sometimes.

I think a HEP IJTPA would fetch more. Although a HEP would probably have powder or brass legs/rails.

I hope the seller gets what they want out of the machine. It does look nice.

Gun is super hot! Still think price is a little high, but as an owner of one about this nice, I’m hoping you get your full price!!
