I was in the middle of a playfield swap for an Addams Family (to install a brand new Micro playfield and make some other upgrades, LEDs, minor mods, etc.), when I had to undergo some unexpected eye surgery in both eyes. I can no longer see well enough to handle the close-up work required by most pinball restoration and repair, and I'm smack in the middle of the project (everything has been removed from the original playfield, and about one-third of the parts have been installed on the new playfield). I have decided to simply sell the project as is, hoping someone can finish the project and give it a decent home.

Luckily, I am very anal and detailed about my pinball related work, and I keep very detailed and careful typed notes about every single step that I take when going through a process like this. Every piece that I removed has been numbered, listed on my repair log, and bagged and tagged. Parts and connections removed from the bottom of the playfield have been numbered and tagged, and their corresponding number written in marker on the old playfield (for reference) Every connection on the wire harness has been tagged with a number for easier reinstallation. And I have over 500 photos of the process to date.

I'm heartbroken that pinball repair doesn't seem to be in my future anymore, but I would really like to have someone take advantage of the money I spent in new parts and mods, etc. Included in this project are all of the original parts (the machine played fine before I started this project), and the new playfield, with at least some of the top playfield parts already installed (the wire harness has been removed from the first playfield, but not yet installed on the new one). Also included is a new LED kit, a new rubber set, completely new flipper parts, bumper parts, and multiple miscellaneous mods (library decals, polar bear, etc.) I am also willing to throw in my two playfield rotisseries, which I sadly will no longer have a use for.

I will be at Chicago Expo 2023 if anyone is interested.

… can I have a copy of your notes for future playfield swaps? That’s an incredible level of detail and your system seems pretty useful albeit tedious!

Looks like someone got it already, but OP if not, I'll come up tomorrow and get it with cash. Either way good luck dude, that's a rough draw with the eye surgery. Sorry.

If you offer $1000 over his asking he'll probably sell it to you. The price police works in both directions.
