    Just completed a full resto of this fun and beautifully engineered machine. The machine in original state was somewhat tired with multiple scratches, dilapidated mountain ball slides and score glass graphics and the mountain valley upright hangers had become detached from the top cover.
    The machine was completely disassembled. Pics provided to assist anyone on future resto of this machine.

    Metal components were cleaned, in some cases given the evaporust treatment, and new graphics applied.

    Great looking!

    Great job! Where did you get all of the graphics? I've never seen anyone offering graphics for these machines before.

    Thks Ken. I purchased the name plate, mountain graphics and score glasses from Ed Smith a couple of years back (5 Balls for 1c and 8000 graphics done by a friend). At the time he traded on a 'virtual internet village' called Vintageville (some connection to Crow River I think) but it does not seem to now exist. I know he also had a stand at Chicagoland. I also purchased a NOS Challenger gun machine from him as he had purchased the whole of the inventory from the previous owner Johnny Frantz and dealt with other penny arcade stuff.

    Sweet!!!

    I just restored one myself and have a couple questions you might be able to answer.

    What are the “mountain valley upright hangers had become detached from the top cover” you refer to?

    I found an extra part inside my machine. Any idea if it is a part of PP, or just some rare part someone probably pulled their hair out looking for? Or a miniature sculpture of Munch’s ‘The Scream’?

    Before and after photos. I decided to return her to original colors, even though I liked the white and blue.

    Best,
    Mike
