Condition: Fully restored (full original status)

Item description

So I am thinning the herd a little. This game is completely restored and I mean completely!!

Every nut and screw tumbled, every mech rebuilt, Light board repainted, Cabinet restenciled, brand new BGresto backglass, all new 7 digit led displays, every board is brand new, new plastics, Original chicklet targets for the 1,2,3 cleaned and reused for better play. Meteor drop targets replaced with repro new, gorgeous original playfield, leds everywhere etc.
It has the 7 digit ROMS with the patch to eliminate the bonus countdown bug and allow scores over a million.

I spared no expense or time doing it. I have done a bunch of these older games over the years. I planned to keep it so I did it all with alot of love! But I have way too many and something needs to go. The playfield is the best original I ever came across. That is why I did the rest up to match. Its beautiful. I will let it go for 2500. If you want an especially nice one this is it. It plays as good as it looks.

Shipping with STI or Fast Eddie okay. I'm 20 minutes from pinfest if that helps

Thanks
Mike

Man, you’re listing some nice classics!

#3 62 days ago

Meteor is such a great game. GLWTS!!!

#4 62 days ago

Looks awesome. Great game that's on my short list, but a bit too far out of range of my *drive to* list.
GLWTS!

#5 62 days ago

I would suggest that you roll the game outside and take some pics, natural light will do the best to show off your work and eliminate all the shadows. GLWTS.

Nice work, man... looks beautiful. Love the black flipper bats too. Great game.
May I ask how you got that purple light to come up from behind the center target?

#7 62 days ago

I used a flexible purple led that had 1 inch leads. Thank you for the kind words. All Pms responded to, as of now it is still available.

Does bgresto do mirroring as well? Love to see that backglass on regular light.

#9 62 days ago

All Pms answered. Thanks guys.. lots of interest but still available

#10 62 days ago

That’s F’n beautiful.
Love that game.

Good luck with the sale.

#11 62 days ago

Man, nice game. Good deal for someone. Anyone who has restored a game or had a game restored knows the cost to get a classic to this condition.

#12 62 days ago

One of the best classic Sterns!

#13 61 days ago

Insane that that playfield is original. Looks amazing.

#15 61 days ago

Thanks for all the kind words guys!! It is alot of work but the results are worth it to see the classics all prettied up.

#16 61 days ago

Any chance this will be coming to Allentown is it doesn’t sell ?

#17 61 days ago

Combo deal with the Seawitch? =)

This looks beautiful. Meteor was the first pin I ever played in a game room of the town firehouse when I was 7. My dad was a volunteer fireman and would drink beers at the firehouse bar and I would ask for quarters for pinball.

“Didn’t I just give you quarters?”
“Does mom know you’re having beers?”
“Here’s some more quarters.”

We did not have a great fire department.

GLWS!

I doubt it will make it to Allentown. A bunch of guys are kicking the tires, I think it will sell before then.

Game is sold pending pickup.. thanks guys

#22 61 days ago

Man I wanted this. Congrats to me on my restraint.

#23 61 days ago

Why are games like this never just right around the corner?

If this one was I would have taken it. My classic Stern collection could use a fully restored Meteor like this one.

We are after a Meteor as well.
Maybe some day.
