Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Now for the Mirco BSD.
When it came in it looked good and now that it has cured a while the inserts edges have had the clear settle within them.
I don’t like a perfectly flat playfield.
I do like a perfectly flat cabinet.
I can easily achieve either but you see a lot more complaints about games playing differently or too fast with overly slick and flat playfields so it is something I have gotten away from the last couple years.
It looks impressive stand alone but for the purpose of a replacement part it has proven to be less than ideal.
That being the case I want it flatter and slicker than this though.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Can you explain how a cleared playfield plays too fast ? This is the case with my Funhouse ( early run mirco) it feels like the ball skates on the playfield . I have other cleared playfields without this issue. Hsa and Peter from Germany ( forgot his co name)

Quoted from littlecammi:

That mummified head looks cool, but why photograph it against a background of what could be the worst chess set ever, or red and white hair curlers you placed neatly on a chess board for some reason?

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

BSD cabinet is decaled.[quoted image]

I've been waiting for you to get to BSD.

#4715 2 years ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Pretty much done with SS.[quoted image][quoted image]

Now on to BSD?

#4970 2 years ago

What are your thoughts about adding Mylar to BSD where the ball lands on the playfield from the shooter lane for home use?

#4993 2 years ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Starting to build up the BSD underside.
I am pretty much just building a new one in many ways.
New switches,targets,lamp sockets,scoops ,sling arms and all new screws.
Just about the only way to go on a game like this in the condition it was in if you want to leave no doubt about what you are sending back to the owner.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I'm assuming the new scoops are from mantis ?

I think that's the worst shooter lane I've ever seen!

They aren't a pinball person and reached out to you ?
Man do those wrapped up pics scare me!

#6568 1 year ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

BSD playfield is wired
[quoted image]
I switched over to the taller playfield resting brackets
I can’t see any reason they should not work but if I run into anything I will let that be known.
[quoted image]
I like the higher resting points with this style compared to the original. [quoted image]
Should be particularly advantageous on this side since the pictured coil bracket is taller than the original resting bracket.[quoted image]

Are these made for another game and where can these be purchased? No clearance issues I assume? I never have cared for the smaller units that come with BSD.

#6570 1 year ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

These are for TZ originally. You can get them from Kerry at Mantis Amusements
No clearance issues as long as you place them in the manner shown in the finished pictures because the right one can be too close to the power box if you don’t slightly angle it.

Thanks! Funny that's where they came from... The ones he sells for BSD are actually shorter than the oem ones!

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

TOM cabinet is reassembled I used factory looms and wire style for this one just to keep it separate from what I normally do.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Was the inside of the cabniet already this clean ? If not what did you use ?

Tennis is a underrated game imo. Lots of fun and a tough game to play. Once you get into a groove you'll love it!

Judge Dredd cabinet is ready to start building tomorrow.

Where did the black decals come from?
Looks much better!

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Catching the BSD cabinet up with the playfield now.
Cabinet I decaled. [quoted image]
Edges shaved. [quoted image]
[quoted image]
Then finished.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

What exactly do you do when you shave the edges?

#9356 4 months ago
Quoted from bam10:

Have to say I was amazed how well sanding the edges of the decals works. Thank you for all the tips and insights you’ve shared.

Doesn't this scuff and peel up the edge of the decals where you don't want them to?

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Great car. I loved those,Irocs,and all the 80s cars. It was a tough time and we didn’t have those over the top performance cars of the 60’s and early 70’s
I haven’t been in the big booth since 2004
It made me think about some of those projects. Back then no cell phone cameras.
Here is a brand new at the time ML320 I camouflaged for put in front of the dealership right after 9-11. [quoted image]
Here is my own 1983 Mustang GT that I did back in 96.
It was a sleeper kept it looking bone stock down to the metric wheels and TRX tires.
It really had a GT-40 crate motor ,8.8 3:55 rear end,world class T-5 and a full independent Saleen suspension. All the handling stuff. Crosstower braces ,sub frame connectors etc etc.
I was able to get all the factory moldings and emblems back then. Did it all myself inside and out start to finish.
I had just moved down here to help my dad get this new dealership body shop off the ground.
I wouldn’t cash my paychecks because I didn’t need to at the time.
After they built up high enough I cashed them in and went to Earl Tindol Ford using my own dealerships discount and ordered everything.
That’s Sandy in the background. Crazy how fast time flies.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

That's awesome ! I've got a similar 86GT

#9434 4 months ago

Surprised the owner didn't go with some kind of tombstone mod. The oem looks so out of place with brock's coffin mod and all your work !

#9449 4 months ago

Thank you for humanly trapping and not hurting him .

#9453 4 months ago
Quoted from LTG:

Hopefully.
He had a guy come out.
Companies that do that kind of work. Don't always dispose of them humanely.

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

TOTAN left and I set up CV. [quoted image]
It’s a mixed bag. Some concerns. [quoted image]
Like no glass channels. These are tough to come by and specific to CV [quoted image]
Trashed backbox lamp panel.I will likely have to repair it which would not be too bad if not for this mess of hot glue [quoted image]
Other than that just pretty much what you see and expect with this title. I will know more once I tear it down The Ringmaster ,boom balloon and sling assemblies are always suspect on CV and are a bit more involved.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Courious... Why do I see a rubber ring around the notice bar like in this one and a lot of other games?

#9792 81 days ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

It’s to secure the prop rod during transit.
[quoted image][quoted image]

Got it. Thanks!

#9819 77 days ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Now that I know where things are headed with the MM cabinet I stripped that and fiberglass filled all the seams and trouble spots. [quoted image][quoted image]
The bolt holes were filled with dowels first then glazed over. If you don’t do this it’s likely going to show back up eventually how drastically is hard to say but still probable. [quoted image]
Fiberglass fill. Sharpening the corners up. [quoted image][quoted image]
I managed to get the floor looking good. That’s tough on MM because they have such a heavy factory overspray and that paint really wicks into the mdf. [quoted image][quoted image]
The fiberglass work is done.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

What would happen if you used wood filler instead of fiberglass?
