Started to drizzle so back inside for the inner pictures.

Going back to 2010.
Wish me luck.

#2807 11 months ago

I knew I was gonna be jealous. My tspp is not bad (only routed for like a year with some minor button wear) but compared to yours .....

Excellent work as usual

#2808 11 months ago

I think the owner of that TSPP is going to be stoked with the result, it looks sensational!

#2809 11 months ago

Looks amazing! Very sharp.

Just trying to think of what to send you next.

I have a new CV and Totan playfield...

#2810 11 months ago

Now that I see the finished product, the red t-molding totally works. Brings out the flipper buttons, Duff beer can, etc.

#2811 11 months ago

Interesting beer you were trying out there, Chris.

Let me know how it goes.

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

...just addressing that single issue before it becomes a point of criticism.

Seriously man, does that really happen? Does anyone really nitpick on something like that to you?

#2813 11 months ago

Are those black powder coated lock nuts? Those are neat, where do you get something like that?

#2814 11 months ago

Ready to finish up the special Whirlwind.

#2815 11 months ago

Quick break to deal with the latest fish shipment.
Last week of Alaskan King season.

#2816 11 months ago

Handled.

One fat one left out for lunch.

#2817 11 months ago

Back to the special Whirlwind
New plastics are built up.

image (resized).jpg
#2818 11 months ago

So the key to restoring a pin like HEP is beer, fish, and the occasional workout session. I’m good on 1 out of 3.

Kidding aside great work on the TSPP. My first pin and still have it.

#2819 11 months ago

Plastics are in place. Just the flipper bats and ramps are left.

No that is just the key to better health to help counter what it takes to restore the games.

#2821 11 months ago

All ramps and plastics are in place on the SWW

#2822 11 months ago

Things are about to get interesting around here.

Yard sale?

#2824 11 months ago

Maverick looks concerned.

#2825 11 months ago

I wish. We have to clear our equipment closet out so we can tear it down and build a new one.
Getting that stuff out was easy.
This stuff much harder.

image (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpg
#2826 11 months ago

Dry rot and/or not enough space?

#2827 11 months ago
Quoted from lb1:

Dry rot and/or not enough space?

Not enough space.
This is what the paint room looks like right now as a result of the upcoming updates.
Hopefully I can get that back in order and useable during the new construction.

Mmmm, Alaskan king is so good. One of the benefits in living in greater Seattle area is great seafood,love it!

Love this thread too, every time I open it I’m a step closer to getting my LOTR restored. Soon...

#2829 11 months ago

Had a late one last night.
Managed to get the paint room back in order well enough to prime two more cabinets.
TZ and TOM

#2830 11 months ago

Cabinets primed last night are now sanded and ready to. Paint.

image (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpg
#2831 11 months ago

What do you use for sanding? I assume it is by hand? What is the pad size? Grit?

#2832 11 months ago

I assume it is by hand?

Ohh god, what a nightmare that would be. He has covered it previously in if not this thread, definitely in others. He has a Festool rig he uses and it involves many different grits depending on what you are trying to accomplish and from what starting point you are at.

I think that is for cabinet prep... Not this final block sanding step. I used to have a 2-3' sanding pad for doing car bodies, I'm guessing that he has something like that.

Gotcha. Personally I've never had to block a cab to get it to come out level and smooth using proper techniques but I could see that being a good way to be absolutly sure.

#2835 11 months ago

Chris, I'll bet you can do MM and TZ in your sleep at this point.

#2836 11 months ago

TZ and TOM cabinets are painted and cleared. image (resized).jpgimage (resized).jpg

Next cabinets to be one will be this lot of Fathoms.

#2837 11 months ago

Nice Hot Rodded Pins

#2838 11 months ago

How is your curing time on paint, before clear?

Looks decent overall.

Not crazy about the shooter lane but I have no idea what it started like. Sometimes this is the only solution.

Otherwise just some insert ghosting.
That is pretty unpredictable

Nice resting brackets

Quoted from heni1977:

Takes about 10 to 15 minutes for the base coat to flash off before it is ok to clear it.

#2843 11 months ago

IJ Cabinet is gutted of all useful parts.

If anyone is interested on the cabinet let me know.
It will include all the gold trim as pictured and mirror blades. Just like itvsets now less the legs.

So who plates a coin door with a hole in it? ?

#2845 11 months ago
Quoted from meSz:

Not sure. The whole job is a disaster
A decently restored playfield reassembled with crusty and incorrect hardware
Old rubbers and worse.
Comes with the lockbar too. image (resized).jpg

Buy with total confidence it was well cared for.

If I take it can you fill the cabinet with beer?

I wonder how many cases of Bud lite that would take
