Item description

Listed as partially restored as the option of mostly restored is not available.
First / foremost this game was restored by an amateur, thus while it is not perfect, it is a much better game now than when I got it.

The Good:
Machine functions 100% electrically / mechanically
New plywood cab and back box (cab has the heavy duty brackets)
New cab / back box decals with clear applied after install
New cab side rails
Playfield has numerous Createx / waterslide touchups with all new starburst type inserts and then multiple layers of Automotive clear applied per the Vid's guide.
New Reese rails
Multiple coils were replaced as they had been swapped at some point with incorrect value coils
All coils have new matching wrappers
New switches for the slings, pop bumps, stationary targets and flippers
Complete four flipper rebuild including bats, bushings, diodes the works
New stationary targets
New drop target
New pop bumper caps
All coils and pop bumpers have connectors installed for ease of future repairs
3 PF spotlights added to help brighten up some areas
New black legs with chrome leg bolts, new levelers
Aftermarket Swemmer MPU
Where required plugs have been replaced and several have been re-pinned
Aftermarket 6803 keypad
LEDs throughout
All Titan rubber (black)
Ball Baron Ninja ball
New shooter
New power switch
New PF glass
Vinyl parts have been dyed black
Several new re-pop plastics
Metal posts, screws etc have been tumbled / polished
Both speakers are new
Aftermarket translite
and as they say in the infomercials... much much more

The Bad:
Restored by an amateur, not every single pf blemish was touched up

Upper PF bat replaced with unit more closely matching the others (purists may frown on this)
Several new re-pop plastics, coloring does not quite match original
Two of the bb to PF wires have been replaced with non color coded wires but included manual notes these wires
Swemmer board has had to have multiple transistors and a few diodes / resistors replaced thus it is not 'original' but does now function 100%
Original displays but they do seem to function 100%
The new cab seems to be about 1/8" narrower than original thus PF removal can be a little tedious
Original apron / shooter guide with minor blemishes but both were cleared with 2PAC
Plastic ramps have a few small cracks, one did have a very small stop hole drilled as it was cracking across the lane

Many more pics of before / after available upon request

Holy crap George...nice work man! Must be the nicest Motordome out there. And the cab is a huge bonus from the original MDF/particleboard crap used on those Bally games that just crumbles. Awesome.

#3 2 years ago

Honest seller here folks!
George has incredible passion for pinball and you can see it in this project...

Well I don't want to toot my own horn but did kinda think this too, well since they were new anyway, thanks Colson!

Quoted from cosmokramer:

Scott, appreciate that, while I know Motordome does not get a lotta love, I like to take on these unique projects and make polish the turds.

#6 2 years ago

Wha? LOL
Sorry COLSON

I fixed it.

#8 2 years ago

It was different to watch that from a reverse perspective.

Looks like it plays well. Nice save in the first 40 seconds!

I'm the proud owner, I mean my wife is the proud owner of his Atlantis restore and this was my Motordome.George does great work and is an expert at packing for shipping.

I don't know if it was stated but all original boards were reflowed at the connector locations and caps replaced where necessary.

As I moved this one this weekend up to my day job, I recalled I installed slide rails. Again, a depart from the original but a mod I felt was worth it.
It should be up and playable by 6/25/19 for those in the area that might be interested, PM me for location and to arrange a game!

Good call George. You posted this just as I ripped the back panel off of the cab on my Halloween pin to make a new one. Maybe I should install these on that as well.

I watched the video. Where's the sweet sweet music?

I saw that, good call, I knew you would not let "well enough" alone!

SO I have this machine up at work and HAD it set to free play... well a co-worker was spending too much time on it, I had not tested the coin mechs, set the game to credits and low and behold they BOTH work! He has NOT played one game since!!!
So yea, the coin mechs do function too!

That is hilarious. Tell him to buy it then he can play it all he wants for free.

With how popular this game is, I’m surprised someone hasn’t worked out a deal to snag it yet.

*bump*

I played this pin at Aladdin's Castle in West Towne Mall in Madison Wisconsin when I was a kid.

I tried and tried and tried but never could reach the top of that upper right ramp.

Someday, in my wandering travels, I will happen upon another MotorDome and exorcise that demon from my memory.

GLWS.
