Setting up the pivot brackets for drilling now.
The left inner is a perfect template for the right inner if mounted outside.
Big Time cabinet is gutted of all useful parts and ready to take back over to the warehouse.
I will build up and wire a coin door assembly next and start working through the transformer panel.
Playfield is removed from the cabinet now and I will take some parts off to be nickel plated.
I will also go through the wiring and fix as much as I can without just stripping it and redoing it entirely.
That is something I could do and justify but knowing someone already paid a premium for the game I am going to try and salvage as much.
Things like this must go.
They are shorts that are just waiting to happen.
It always amazes me that someone would do a cabinet and playfield swap but not change the coil sleeves.
Wow. Sad sign of the “doll collector” direction this hobby has gone in. Your games are beautiful inside and out.
Quoted from High_End_Pins:
A new heavy duty cord is used and new line filter. [quoted image]
Extended wiring and thoughtful placement allows me to install it in a more ideal place. [quoted image]
The cord is a good length as well.
the corcom line filters can be found here:
newark.com is about $3 ea cheaper than digi-key
Put the other in the vicinity it needs to be in.
They weigh 200lbs and just the wife to help.
Weather hood is back from powder coating.
Edit: nevermind! But I'll go ahead and leave the advice here for any other Munsters owners.
If you're tweaking that Munsters premium for a customer, I have one very specific piece of advice. On the lower playfield, fast shots to the right ramp will jump the opto 90% of the time. (Backhands are the fast shots. It's tough to make that ramp at all from the tiny left flipper.)
For my friend's LE, we wedged a small piece of clear plastic over that part of the ramp as a ceiling to force the ball down and break that opto on every shot. I'm sure your solution would be more elegant.
Maverick is ready to play.
Marshall will be 19 on Easter Sunday.
Going to celebrate his birthday tomorrow so he can enjoy both the birthday and Easter independently.
Even though he is technically going to be 19 he is probably on about a fifth grade level so it is still like having a much younger child as a result this is the cake he wanted.
My parents sent him a card with a couple hundred dollars in it. He doesn’t read the card and would throw the money away if we didn’t intervene.
There is something really neat about that view of money in my eyes. So many people are ruled by it but to have no concept or care about it at all?Cool!
I have had one of his gifts stashed in my toolbox all month.
Happy Birthday, Marshall! My kids birthday is on Easter, too. I'm planning an egg hunt mixed with finding their hidden presents. Eggs will have clues in them. Even though my kids are teenagers, they still love that stuff.
Marshall loves rock and roll and heavy metal music.
He laments and chants half the day about how he both loves rock and roll and hates rap.
Kid has no filter at all can be a challenge at a restaurant or the grocery store especially these last 10 years
Got this email from Amazon and it is so tempting to answer.
My answer would be
“No but it will definitely clean a dirty pussy”
Seriously why in the hell would someone even ask or consider using this product for that purpose?
Quoted from bflagg:
Nice! Are you using new door skins? I got one from Marco and it doesn’t look near as good as that one.
Yes. I get them from Marco as well and half the time they are scratched up which really pisses me off and defeats the purpose of buying one.
They come with the sticky film on them so you really don’t know what you’re getting until you peel it off and clean the glue residue off.
That being the case I buy an extra just in case.
Mods survive... bah! Throw those mods in the trash. The customer is always right though!
