Playfield is pretty much done. Working on cabinet artwork now.

Very nice sample

Nice conversion on Harlem globetrotters indeed , following to see what you do with cabinet artwork
Mine was black with orange light bolt

Thanks! I'm working on the cabinet artwork now. Hope to have something firmed up in the next couple days. Would love to see your cab art!

Mine did not have art work
Someone prior to me painted it black with orange bolt / stripe on there

Of the backglass there were different versions which one you have?
BG resto restored one for me also

I just placed the BG in for the first time and lit it up. Discovered that all of the feature lights (Game Over, Tilt, etc etc) have been moved from the original HG positions so now I’ll have to remove the light blocks, move the lights then fashion new light blocks. Joy! At least they left “Ball in Play” in its correct spot.
Why Geiger wouldn’t have matched up the original positions is beyond me!

Mine appears to be the same as yours.

While I’m busy discovering stuff on the backglass, they didn’t include “High Score To Date” at all. Harumph!

#10 49 days ago

It was too bad BG made colors too dark
But I believe that was due to 2 versions of this backglass

Original was much clearer

Still have to do the front of the cabinet and a few stars on the sides. Getting close though.

What did you use for your cabinet art? Vinyl cutter? I dig the nods to the original Harlem Globetrotters art on the head and cabinet front.

Not sure how this question got by me. YES, I just used Adobe Illustrator and a vinyl cutter for all of the cabinet artwork. Seemed the simplest solution. And also yes, the lettering on the backbox as well as the pattern on the front were created as an updated throwback to the original. Glad someone noticed!
