I brought this game home from Pinfest earlier this year, thanks to a great deal from Joe at PinballStar. Actually bought a pair of them, and both games were equally bad, in horrible shape.

Kept one with the “better” playfield, and passed the other one on to a fellow Pinsider for free a few months back.

I’ve been working on this alongside my Halloween retheme, and my buddy asked me to post a thread so he could consider restoring his. Thought I would document it here for anyone that wanted to follow.

Here’s the beginning. Burn marks on PF somehow, no backglass, game is a filthy mess.

Inside...I guess this is why the one leg wouldn’t go on. A small leg bolt in backwards?

You’re always tempted to wipe down the playfield just to see what’s underneath. Not as horrible as it could be. Just a quick wipe of a section with CP100.

Tear down...I guess just plain filthy was an understatement.

I saw these two at pinfest.

Glad someone is going to give them some love.

Quoted from Blackbeard:

Definitely. Thanks for checkin in. Most people know I am not a purist, so I often don’t keep everything “original”. Usually do my games a little different.

More tear down...

Backbox brackets and other parts coming off. Siderails were pretty scratched up, so have to go with powder.

Man, I'm so happy you are restoring it ! Sell it back to me when you're done I'll give you stupid money ! Been looking for a nice one for while...
Thanks for posting - makes me happy they went to a good home after I rescued them !

The very first SYS80. Beautiful art on this one.

Yeah man...I told you I would get to it! Appreciate the good deal.

This thing should look pretty killer when I’m done with it. Playfield is getting touched up and clearcoated too.

Yes sir. Original Marvel art. Fantastic....so much better than the art on the more recent Vault Edition.

How’d you powder coat those so fast? Who do you use?

Haha. I started this project a few weeks ago. My buddy is going to restore his and asked me to post a thread so he could follow, but I was delayed so I’m playing catch up.

But I did get the batch of parts back in a week. I use Bonehead Performance in Warrington. Killer shop, and luckily I know the owner.

That’s awesome. Im currently painting a whole bunch of stuff for a project and I was just saying I wish I could’ve/would’ve powder coated it.

I’m jealous, your project is going to looks so good man!

Backbox empty and light panel removed. Even the speaker grate is rusted slightly, so I’m just going to sandblast and powdercoat practically all of the metal.

MPU and driver boards look pretty crappy, so might just grab Swemmer boards.

Transformer board is pretty dirty. Going to repaint and reassemble it, so might as well have some of that metal powdered too.

You have to powder anything metal. Unless you want to polish and keep it original, or chrome it. Powdered parts won’t rust or oxidize....at least they shouldn’t for a very long damn time.

I tried simple spraying and clearcoating myself in the past, and even though it might look OK, it never looks as good...and it’s nowhere near as resilient as powder. I’ll still spray bolt and screw heads to match at home occasionally.

As the lucky recipient of the 2nd machine you passed on, I'm totally following this. Currently 3rd on my project/restore list.....but this one is pretty daunting. Can't wait to see how you tackle the cab and playfield art.

.....and if you end up getting new boards and need to offload the originals, let.me.know

#31 1 year ago

Hey man,

Following your project... Interresting. Got one spidey, but this one is in great shape. Anyhow I got other ones needing care in the next future.
What you do seems great until now.

Looks like work and glad to be following.

Second round of parts for powder (dropped off late last week). Should be picked up tomorrow. Now we’re up to speed with where I’m at.

Do you need any plastics? I don’t remember if any were cracked or chipped on the game you took.

These cleaned up pretty nice, but a few of them are warped and meh so I ordered a new repro set from PBR.

Delayed response due to some rearranging in prep to receive and unpack a very large box tomorrow.

Awesome. I’ve played a couple of them, and really like the game. Some people say it’s a clunker, but I just think they don’t shoot well enough. I was hitting shots pretty smoothly after a few games.

Love the art package on ACNC, and the audio is killer. Nice addition.

Agreed completely....sorry for hijacking the thread. Now back to your friendly neighborhood webslinger.

Interesting. I’ll have to try that sometime.

Already have some replacements 3D printed for Spidey. Much more durable than the originals. And some with tabs if I want to mount with screws or tacks, as opposed to glueing.

I found some pvc pipe couplers that were pretty close to the perfect size for the light shields just had to cut to the right length.

To see one on an older pin.

The 60-70 Spider-Man comic art was the best.
