Decent restoration. This was a reimport early sample TZ that I sold about 7 years ago, and it was just traded in. I believe this game once had the "white door" decal on the head, but the previous owner decaled the cab and put a color set over it. The game has sat for 4 years totally unplayed.

This sample has the following features:

Factory drilled spot for 3rd magnet

Stickered gumball light plastic

White clock

Green lock

No print on magnets on mini pf

Double star posts near pops

Side mounted 8-driver PCB

No covers on mini pf switches

The restoration included:
-pf stripped, clear coated, reassembled
-under pf mechs checked and rebuilt as needed
-new cab art
-new legs, glass, lockdown bar, display
-new entropy coin door
-new powerball

I picked it up last night and booted it up. It booted to game over mode and the clock homed in at 12:00 properly. That is as far as I've gone with it so far.

7900 OBO. Cash sale preferred. Trades possible but they need to be reallllly sweet. I will take more pics when I can, but I would prefer to have a buyer come out, see the game, appreciate it, and then make the deal.

Game is a solid 9 all the way around.

Pm if interested.

Thanks!
Mike

Yeah I know. I want to peel them off lol. Planetary makes a proto decal set. I wonder if Rick would just do the head......

Wait, is it just the head redecaled or the whole cab. I may be able to live with just the head.

Whole cab was decaled. A nice job, but the significant part of this being a sample is that it had the white door decal on the head, which was decaled over.

Hey there! Got a moment?
