    This game was running in the background of the 4MBC so I did not document it well but there was a good deal of interest in it so I am throwing the finished game up here.
    I repainted the cabinet and did some subtle touches to the art.

    Few more cabinet pictures and the rest of the playfield.
    I will make a full gallery of it and post the link soon for those interested in seeing the rest.

    Stunning work mate, and good to see the garage door legacy lives on.

    It is a brickfest but I do enjoy it.

    Quoted from smiley:

    It usually depends on where I finish the games.
    I have two shops with one being a commercial presence for the type of legitimacy needed to run a business properly and the other being a piggyback to it that is essentially what would be considered a home office for a man in my line of work.

    Nice to see games other than the usual A-Listers get the HEP treatment.

    I just starting restoring one today....a dream to even think it could look this sweet!

    #16 2 years ago

    That's stinking sweet .

    #17 2 years ago

    Looks better than new! I'm also convinced that a complete set of unbroken buildings doesn't exist. Haha

    Yeah, I have mine growing "shrubbery", in a few spots to fix that.....I keep looking at the pictures....Damn, its haunting!

    Ok I have to ask, where in the hell did you find unobtanium side ramps/buildings? Nearly every fire! I've seen has cracked ramps because of the force of the ball hitting the wall from the orbit ramp.

    #20 2 years ago

    Awesome Chris. Thanks for sharing

    #21 2 years ago

    When can I drop mine off?

    The game was pretty nice when I picked it up locally.
    There was one repaired building that the owner of the game was able to source a replacement for but not sure where and now of course it has that well made reinforcement kit so hopefully that will solve it long term.
    The game was pretty packed on the underside once I tore down the playfield it was a surprise.

    Any of these made available?

    Black cab looks so much better that the original brown, beautiful work as always.

    #27 2 years ago

    God Dang!
    I just played a decent one in a tournament this weekend, fun and good looking game!

    #28 2 years ago

    Unreal! Very cool

    #29 2 years ago

    Hot damn!

    Well done, Chris! That's some museum quality stuff.

    If I were wealthy I'd definitely start an all HEP collection/museum.

    No, the market has been saturated based on slowing inquiries I've gotten over time. Unfortunately I need to run 9 pairs to make them cost effective. That's why I uploaded DXF files so if someone really wanted them, they can get them laser cut at about $20-$25 each.

    If you ever consider another run, I am in for 1 of the 9 pair.

    Finally got the gallery link up for this one.
    I have not had a chance to fully organize it but it is there .

    I was unable to do much with my gallery the last few months because I was in need of an updated camera and. computer .
    This has been done and it should go back to normal there with newly finished restorations and. games in process.

    Here is the fire link.
    Just need to figure out the easiest way to organize and change pictures names on Mac and I should be all set.

    #36 1 year ago

    Funny I was just moving a Fire! the other day (as far away from everyone as possible because it's awful) and we had a laugh or 2 aboot the shit brown coloring they used.

    #37 1 year ago

    That is funny. I played a few games on one yesterday and loved it. That’s the great thing about pinball.

    #38 1 year ago

    Now I'm curious: Where did those side rails come from? I notice that they have a nice, refined beveled edge like the more modern WPC rails.

    #39 1 year ago

    Got a few PMs asking where the black decals came from.
    I painted this cabinet did not decal it.
    The shading in the letters was part of the repaints as well.
