    Item description

    Here is an immaculately restored TZ.
    I am listing this for a good friend who was one of those "closet' restoration guys. Joe Grenuk was never on the big radar but his attention to detail and craftsmanship was impeccable. Pinheads who dealt with him know what I mean. His games a played as good as they looked as well.
    As the pics show chrome and mirror polishing was a something he truly loved. If the metal wasn't plated in chrome is was polished. Guides, brackets, habitrails, scoops...just about everything. It has the TV mod, the colored gumballs and the light kit.
    This game has a near perfect playfield that has been professionally clearcoated and an extremely nice cabinet with perfectly applied decals.
    More pics and info available just message me thru pinside.
    Partial or full transportation may be available up the I95 corridor then into the Eastern ohio Western PA area for a nominal fee in mid October. The game is currently located in Florida.
    Sorry no trades but shipping is a possibility for a handling fee.

    Missing Chrome Apron, Coindoor, Chrome covers on upper playfield, and 10 other things I see.

    https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/archive/117605

    Lockbar receiver chromed?

    Needs ColorDMD and more to ask that price I think?

    Stainless ramp not polished, etc etc.

    I would have worded it as, "Some stuff is chromed or polished"

    #3 1 year ago

    I LOOVE the underside pictures of the playfield. I am guessing the glass doesn't come off.

    #4 1 year ago

    Chromed armor looks great, but doing the H-bar, speaker panel bottom and glass lift channel is a bit much IMHO.

    #5 1 year ago

    looks fantastic. but what's with the rubber ring in between the top left and bottom pops? probably don't see a lot of left outlane drains on this one!

    #6 1 year ago

    Good luck with the sale! Joe was one of the good guys! RIP my friend!

    Quoted from bigehrl:

    Some TZs came with it, most without.

    Story I heard was that complaints were coming in of too many pops -> left outlanes when the machines were on test, so Pat added the posts and rubber to stop that. Later, complaints changed to too many pops -> SDTM off the new posts, so they got phased out pretty quickly.

    I think most samples and some early production games have the posts, a few following have playfield holes but no posts, and eventually the holes got removed.

    Agreed on everything except the post were given as an option to be installed or not. That’s also explain some differences and complicated things.

    #9 1 year ago

    Yeah I think the later games with holes in the playfields had the posts in the coinbox, but I thought some machines shipped with them already installed?

    #10 1 year ago

    More pics added to include the bottom of the play field and back box.

    #11 1 year ago

    What a deal!!! I'll go 20k on a game that's very high maintainence
