Item description

Selling my very nice Taxi Pinball. This is my second Taxi and as always I hate to let it go, but it’s time to move on. This one is in very nice original condition and everything works exactly how it should. It doesn’t have the blatant discoloring of the gray on the non-mylar areas of the playfield that this title always seems to have, and the black ball swirl mess in the same area is minimal compared to most. The PF is very nice, typical wear spots around the inside of the pop bumpers have been addressed with mylar rings. And it has the typical wear spots where the two habitrails drop onto the in lanes. The original ramps have a few hairline cracks, but nothing major that is getting any worse or effecting gamy play in any way.

In the past 6 months I’ve done a complete topside tear down shop job. New parts include posts, rings, flipper bats, balls, flipper buttons, new bumper bodies caps and skirts. I re-sleeved the flippers, and performed the WPC flipper mod. Novus 2 cleaning followed by California gold paste carnauba wax afterwards.

No acid damage on factory MPU, no hum, original displays work perfect. The cabinet has a spot of wood that has flaked off just under the left side of the lockdown bar (Not water damage). I was going to Bondo and paint it, but I never got around to it mainly because it didn’t bother me that much. The rest of the cabinet is solid, very nice and fade free with minimal dings and bumps. The topper is very nice with no cracks. I’ve tastefully installed Comet Warm White non-ghosting LEDs throughout with color matched inserts. Leaving the original incandescent flashers (they just look better in my opinion). It also has newer PF glass.

Please as questions, and if you need pictures of a specific area that isn’t already covered feel free to let me know, no one likes surprises!

Although not preferred…I’m willing to ship as long as you set everything up. I can assist with how to do that and details.

Thanks guys! Yeah i don't plan on likely finding another that isn't horribly discolored in the gray like most. With the invent of the Taxi hardtop, i think next time around I'm going to buy a crap one and install the hardtop on it, that thing is beautiful! I just cant get myself to sand down a playfield unless it's completely gone. These can only be original once, and once it's gone, it's gone.
