Item description

Selling my ground up restored Quicksilver. New playfield, new plastics, new harness, basically a new game. All LED, completely Titan rubbers, powder coated everything black and painted the inside of the cabinet black. I think this is one of the best looking QuickSilver games around, but will let the buyer be the judge.

All New electronic boards, new bgrestro backglass, green displays.

Please feel free to ask questions. I have good feedback and lots of references if anyone needs them.

Gorgeous and well priced for a fully restored one. GLWS.

I'm not so sure this is a restore. Seems more like a scratch build to me (starting with a donor cabinet from another game)

Oh, you’re right. New wire harness as well. Wow! Where do you find the wire harness for Quicksilver? This ground up build had to take a ridiculous amount of work. Is there a thread documenting it? I’d love to do that with a Star Gazer.

Mk1Mod0 makes new harnesses for older games, but I’m not sure if this game has his version. I reached out to him about Fathom but he’s backlogged. I bought a new wiring harness for the coin door, though.

Anyway, gorgeous game! GLWTS!

There's a whole thread somewhere with people doing quicksilver scratch builds.. there was a guy making wiring harnesses.. he was making star gazer harnesses too. My brother actually built a quicksilver last year (i have yet to play it). He's going to build a star gazer next.

It would be interesting to calculate the profit that these guys can make on these. It's a ton of time no doubt, but seems like a lucrative way to earn some $ - just form your own assembly line, buy all the pfs and go to town.

#13 6 months ago

This was a from scratch build. Not a ton of money being made here, lots of hard to get parts, rebuilding, searching, anyone out there can go do it themselves if they would like. As I have now learned, far cheaper and easier to just buy one already done!

Anyone who would like to build one, from start to finish this probably took about a year, and that is with a professional building it and helping source parts.

Beautiful. GLWS

Played this a few days ago and it shoots like a dream and is absolutely stunning. The photos don't do it justice.

Not sure where you are going to get all the 4 bank drop target mechs.

As someone who has also done a scratch build QS, I can definitively say that it is NOT a lucrative way to earn some $. Working at McDs would be significantly more profitable for the time invested here. You do it for the love; no one would dare take this on to make a quick buck.

Maybe scavenge a 5-bank off of a Split Second and shoehorn it in?

Love to have a Star Gazer

Yep. You’d have to find 5 banks and cut them down.

#21 6 months ago

Not necessarily. I didn’t need to use it since I had a 4-bank, but I test-fit the 5-bank out of a Hot Hand when I was building mine and it would work as-is. There’s a good amount of empty space behind that mech. 6-bank out of Meteor wouldn’t work without cutting it down though.

great paint job, cabinet look sharp! I would only nit picked as to not having the assembly replatted for the scratch build

I actually thought about it, the cost of plating was just way too high for me. Thank you for all the comments, this was a journey for sure and a massive learning experience for sure.

At least I got to play it once before you sold it.
