Hey all,
Up for trade is my really nice Addams family. Game plays as it should with no errors. The playfield is clearcoated with a premium automotive clear. 8 layers up top and a couple on the bottom for added protection. Has LED's in the inserts and incandescents in the GI. New ramp, refinished wireforms, new bookcase, switch protectors, mirror blades, new glass, new sleeves, magnet fuses added, extra ball button added for Addams Gold Rom (rom not installed), polished metal up top and below, everything removed and resoldered, no hacks on any of the boards and very clean. I tried to take pics in many different lights but it's tough to show exactly how beautiful the playfield is, although it wasn't a perfect specimen to start it came out very nice. Apron is redone and clearcoated and coin door is repainted. Coin mechs are removed.

The cab has some bits of wear around the flipper button and the front of the cab picked up a ding below the rose that doesn't appear in the beginning of the pics but is pictured in the latter half (because it just happened grrrrr). Overall the cab is solid and color is good but could be redone to take it to the next level.

Some of the pics show a broken sling plastic (that's fixed) as seen in latter photos. No mirror blades in the early photos of the album but they're seen later. I have 3 lamps out (a couple in greed and I just noticed the one under the right sling in the pictures all of that will be fixed today.) About 150 pics in photobucket.

I'm open to most offers, project machines ok, and multiple for one possible. and will be in Michigan on Monday and Tuesday of next week but am out of Cleveland Ohio and generally only travel within a couple of hours with pins. Cincy, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Detroit all in the realm of possiblity. Someone asked for a sale price already and it would be $6000 obo but I much prefer to trade, can ship, have loading dock.

In the first pic... Are those darker track-like marks in between the skill shot saucer and orbit switch ball swirl marks (under-neath the clear) or is that just some dirt that needs wiped away? It's very hard to tell from the picture.

I have a Nascar and an NBA FastBreak if you are interested?

It's under the clear there and there is just a tiny bit of faint wear like that in the inlanes as well. The restorer essentially seemed worried of matching paint touch up before the clear for those couple of small spots and used a decal under the clear for the mansion.

Were they not able to buff it out? Looks like they didn't even try. Nice looking machine regardless.

I cant tell for sure. It was the restorers first clearcoat machine iirc and he may have not gone at that swirl aggressively enough and probably figured the spot is never visible and continued on. I saw a part of his collection and it is quite brilliant, especially what he does on wiring cleanup and hardware below. Everything polished, resoldered, rerouted, and makes sure every washer and nut is there, no half-A job on the electrical which to me means alot.
