Hey all,

Okay, let's try this again; first post didn't go through. Player's T2.

Crappy stuff

- insert wear
- cabinet is so-so cosmetically; not going to fall apart, not going to win best in show
- missing the hunter ship
- at least two cracked plastics (slingshot and one to right of Terminator head)
- when I switched from Superbands to red rubber, clearance between the left inlane and the flipper was tight, and caused the flipper to bind; I cut away some of the flipper rubber to deal with this; Superbands are still here and you can use those if you prefer, but wanted you to be aware of the issue
- drop target goes down FAST; sometimes ball blows right past it and hits VUK, then feeds cannon; could be a spring tension issue, but don't write that in stone
- I can't tell if the flippers aren't as punchy as they should be or not; I can make all the shots just fine, but have been playing my Sterns a lot lately, so it could just be the difference in feel between the two?
- I think I need to put a new ring on one of the pops, as one of the threaded ends broke when tightening/adjusting; plays fine, but the issue is there (this is more of a reminder to me to fix it than a notice to others)
- missing plastics surrounding left side of Terminator head and Skynet Labs sign above right ramp

Good stuff

- plays fine; no credit dot
- rebuild DMD HV section
- new DMD
- rebuilt J120/J121 (general illumination) connectors
- rebuilt flippers; looks like I put new flipper coils in as well

Long story short, it's a player's game. No one is going to fool anyone into thinking it's brand new. You have that one buddy who's always hummed and hawed and wants a game but doesn't want to spend an arm and a leg? This is probably going to fall into that category. Nothing special, but I won't really pretend it is.

I bought the game for $1500, threw a new DMD at it which runs about $200, bought some parts and odds and ends (say $75 for flipper rebuild kit, some coils, and a few oddball electronic and hardware parts here and there?). So, I'm into the game for about $1775, let's say my time's worth $100, put it at $1875 Canadian?

I'm going to throw pictures up, but pictures coming from an iPad are finicky, so I'll do those in separate posts...

Just in case the op didn't notice. It has another broken plastic surrounding the right side of the terminator head (players perspective). And it is completely missing two other plastics, the one that surrounds the left side of the terminator head and the "Skynet Labs" sign above the right ramp.

Hey,

I'll update the post to mention that (I wasn't aware of the missing stuff). In regard to the plastic to the right side of the Terminator's head, I'm not doubting you, but it appears the same as the one here; am I missing something? http://www.pinballrebel.com/game/pins/t2/terminator2_2.jpg

Thanks!

Luke

Edit: Nevermind, you're right. Plastic is cracked at point where it's closest to player. My mistake. Original post has been edited appropriately.

Roadcase or monsters? I recommend a better sparky plastic before playing the first ball - avoid the airballs!
I also remounted the snake bracket with washers to make the jaw level with the playfield.

The pro translite is very nice and not so noisy as the monsters. Monsters is ok, but perhaps the band members should have been a little more prominent or bigger?
