Just acquired a King Pin myself. Really fun for a simple drop target game. Reviewing the pinrepair.com page on KP restoration, but its still too early to take it out of service for this level of work. The pf needs a good cleaning and it needs a flipper rebuild (need to locate the small flipper parts). I'll likely have to pull the backglass for a triple thick as it has some flaking. But for the time being its getting lots of play. IMG_0586.JPG IMG_0587.JPG IMG_0590.JPG

Quoted from way2wyrd:

you have the same wear on the 5000 spot on top

yeah...typical kick out hole landing spots. Clay has some JPGs on his site for the 5000 number and copyright that he used for waterslide decals. He did much more paint on his than I want to do....but I'll see how much I lose when I give it a good cleaning. I might go more temporary. Touch up, wax well and use mylar over the spots so I can remove later to do a more intensive refurb work. I haven't gotten into clear much....but have a couple projects that need it...so I might end up having to get proficient at it.

Mine was set to 5-ball when I got it. I switched to 3-ball and was surprised how much easier it was to score more points given the changes in rules.
