Quoted from Leosac:
I assume these are recent Touchdown pictures. Any other words of wisdom on this machine?
They're from a pin I'm currently working on. Yes, some of those photos are from before I started cleaning it up.
If yours was routed, be prepared to find stripped post holes, or the wrong posts/screws. The ball really bangs around the playfield pretty hard with all the pops, kickers, and slingshots. You'll probably have to fill and drill the post holes. especially the ones for the rollover lanes nearest the pop bumpers. When you're done, make sure to tighten the posts so that they don't wiggle, or you'll end up with the same problem again later.
Also, because the ball does bang around a lot, I'd recommend PETG washers to protect the plastics. Pinballlife carries them.
If your inlanes aren't worn front he kickout holes, put down mylar immediately (if you don't plan on clear coating). Same goes for the pop bumpers.
But, since this is a single-level game with no ramps, it's fairly easy to strip down and shop out.
One thing I did in on the light board that wasn't factory was replace some of the bulbs with blinker bulbs (mostly for the game title) to make the backglass more interesting when in attract mode. However, if you want to keep it completely original, no blinker bulbs were used--just #44/#47.
