Thought I'd share a couple of before & after pictures. 'Er in doors said I can only work on pins in winter, but the last couple of weekends were too hot to go out, so I got a pass (correct, I do not wear the trousers).
So here are the photo from the original Craigslist - cab painted red/brown. Tried to remove top layer of paint but I had to strip it all the way back and repaint. Made stencils from the vague patterns left on the wood!
Here it is now
Lock down bar is not correct I believe - as I stole the one that came with it and swapped it for the one on my Kings and Queens.
Legs came out lovely after a week in the Evaporust torpedo tube https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/fun-with-evaporust#post-3064499

The playfield was filthy but not too worn, I used alcohol, Krud Kutter, Novus 2 and Johnsons wax)
All in all I think this is a beautiful machine, coupled with fun game play. Plus who doesn't love the sound of those bells (to quote Quasimodo)
