Quoted from PinMonk:

Completely sexy. I actually like this pin quite a bit despite the critical consensus, and the Midnight Madness mode is one of the coolest to date.

I actually enjoyed this one myself.

Thanks for all of the pics of your work. Those pics can be so valuable for those of us restoring games. I'm close to putting my JM back together and I will be referencing these pics as well as my own in the process.

Hey Chris, question here that I hope you don’t mind/that I figure maybe others have wondered about.

When you paint cabinets, do you color match the primer to the base coat paint color? From what I’ve seen on your guide coating posts, color match is less on your mind than finding the low spots and getting a smooth surface, so a contrasting primer is where it’s at.

I’m about to paint 4 cabinets, and am probably going to use automotive paints and primer. Before ordering all my supplies, I was wondering if you recommend using primers tinted to match the background?
2 of the cabinets are orange (Solar Fire), one is blue (Spirit), and one is black (Centaur.)

New week.
This will be a big one for me. Four years of this HEP thread and my 50th birthday later this week.
Starting to prep some cabinets for my continued IJ run and WH20.
JM is heading out today so I can work my next non ES,IJ,WH20 projects in.
Will be PM and Congo.

JMs ready to go being picked up in person in just a bit. F9B9D11E-E45C-412B-BC94-8B156CCCCA96 (resized).jpeg

Wired the IJ(PR) cabinet. Takes more effort to get the shaker and Pinsound in there clean.
It drug out just a little because the IJ nightmare keeps surprising me butI am getting a handle on it.
I just can’t leave something like that alone knowing what I do it haunts me

Happy Birthday Chris! Welcome to the 50's club! LOL

You know a business is legit when a pin is wrapped like that for PICKUP. I've seen less packaging on pins being shipped long distance!

Well done as always!

Chris

I made a playlist that has at least two songs from each year I have been alive. We haven’t made it out of the 70s yet.
Marshall loves this one.
It’s always so interesting to see what will peak his interest.
I have enjoyed being this guys father so much!!
I think a big part of that is he never “grows up”. It’s awesome.

Birthday-ing like a boss.

Happy Birthday Chris!

Very curious about the large metal orbit guide for IJ that you got- is that something you had done via a service like sendcutsend? I was planning on recreating that part in Fusion360 and having SendCutSend make it for my IJ build project- would love to hear if someone already has a CAD file for it.

#11686 1 day ago

Happy Birthday Chris. You're looking pretty darn great at 50. Thank you again for keeping this thread. It's my all time favorite place to go every day.

#11687 1 day ago

Thanks again for all the great comments and encouragement.
I managed to polish and shape my IJ nightmare large ball guide despite getting a late slow start today.
Probably best explained on my YouTube series but here are some pictures.

Thanks that was probably my biggest obstacle on the project at a glance but it has been one surprise after another so who knows?
