New arrival is F14. Looking forward to it.

I just finished my F-14 Tomcat restoration, but I can’t wait to see where you go with this one.

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

I agree but I am really getting away from chrome or brass plating because the expense of it and down time is just too great these days.
On the Centaur era games powder and plating look great but it usually makes reassembly and durability a nightmare.
The biggest issue is usually the coin doors and hinges.
The doors rarely fit together or operate properly after plating or powder and the often start chipping at the hinge after a few open and closes. Just too tight.

I agree that Centuar needs some shine.

Mirror polished stainless looks better than chrome, in my opinion. It takes time, but the result is worth it.

That is one beautiful TZ. I was skeptical about the blackout treatment, but it really fits. Love it!

Were you able to create a dimple map/template for the rest of the spirit playfields?

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

I will off the old one.

This sounds like an opportunity for someone with access to a bunch of original playfields to CAD up dimple maps for sale or to share. I’m not hinting at you doing it. I have rusty CAD skills, just not the playfield access or time.

Quoted from xeneize:

I now have to always have a well stocked bin of molex plugs and pins...

If only Chris could partner with a place like pinball life to have HEP approved restoration wannabe kits.
