About 6 months ago, I picked up a High Speed that was playable, but needed alot of work. Typical stuff like getting the proper coils (one burnt original coil, two mismatched and underpowered ones on the other flippers), adjustments, and overall TLC. But, it did have some niceties like XPin displays, NVRAM battery eliminator, and freeplay40's kick ass clear ramp.
But, the backbox was trashed (and literally held together with Handy Dan brackets, so have to presume it's a pre-90s casualty) and it clearly was routed based on shooter lane wear and, you know, the gaming registration stickers adorning the front of the cabinet.
She was definitely playable, but the uneven inserts, bubbling Mylar, and typical playfield wear kept nagging me. I - along with half of Pinside, apparently - patiently waited for the Outside Edge folks to release their Hardtop for High Speed. I jumped in on it the day they started taking orders.
Here's what she looked like prior to the Hardtop.
