Hey guys, picked up a Funhouse sunday to restore. Also got a brand new IPB playfield with the deal. The game, as it sits is in pretty bad shape. Worn to the wood, slow playing, in general need of some attention.

I plan on rebuilding all the assemblies, cleaning/replacing as needed everything as I make the playfield swap. I ordered all new ramps and plastics already, and will order more parts as the teardown occurs, and the requirements are assessed.

I will keep you guys posted as to how it goes, wish me luck!

The GI Connector was burnt to a literal crisp. Will be replacing that before I start the teardown, like to have everything "100%" before I begin.

Wow, not joking that does look a tad burnt. Keep the pics coming of progress.

Wow, sad to see a classic get in that shape, but I'm sure it'll look great when you are done with it.

Wow, now that's a beat playfield. Good thing it's a moot point with your new pf for it.

I have a FH, and an IPB pf for it. My shooter lane and ball drops are worn a bit, but otherwise it's pretty decent. Been holding off on the replacement, but that time is approaching.

Nice cabinet on yours. Good luck on the restoration.

Funhouse is one of our "never sell" pins. What a great game.

It makes me happy that this game got played so much. Always fun to resurrect a game because it needs it, not just because.

It should also make you happy that I totally wanted that game and PF. You win! Enjoy the winter project and I wanna see Rudy up by the last thaw.

Too be honest, the original PF is fine by me. The mylar saved the important stuff. Then again, I'm not an LED, dick-in-the-coin-slot kinda guy. I like a well playing game and, too an extent (much further than that PF), could care less about inlane/outlane/pop bumper wear. I mean, I wouldn't pay $5000 for something in that condition, but I would sure wax it up, tweak it, and play the hell out of it.

Agreed. That's one of the reasons I'm struggling with the decision to swap the pf. I appreciate the wear from years of arcade life. It's amazing they hold up so well sometimes with the abuse they get.

I'm in the process of doing the same thing. Was using a small tripod rotisserie but decided to build a larger one.

Yeah, that pf is definitely not bad and saveable. I would touch it up, clear it, and play the heck out of it too. But, I'm sure you'll enjoy the new IPB PF as well. Hope your old PF goes to a good home.

I'm not either, in fact I kind of hate LEDs. However, the game, as it sits, is not playable. Since I am going to be rebuilding everything anyways, a new Playfield makes sense. If anyone wants dibs on my old one, send me an offer. It will prob be a couple weeks before I have everything torn off.

Looks like a nice project but i think you need to change your username!

You have an awesome 4 pin lineup, btw.

It looks like Rudy has taken too many balls to the mouth

Rudy for sure needs some new lipstick. If I can't make it look good, will just replace the jaw.

I was just jiving, really. Next to Earthshaker, I bet this has to be one of the more complex teardowns. I can't believe you were able to land the pin WITH a PF repro. His WH20 deal was through the roof, too. An extra PF and ramps!

I just laughed at my LED dick-in-the-coin-slot joke again. I blame winter.
