I have my eye on a High Speed project, but it needs A LOT of work. In preparation, I've been researching what's out there in the way of parts. Surprisingly given the popularity and prominence of this title, I cant find a number of things:
- pop bumper caps
- repro playfield
- beacon cover
- decals for the spinners
- repro backglass

Does anyone have any leads on where I could find these items?

Pop Bumper caps and Spinner decals available at Planetary Pinball

I'd keep an eye on hard tops to see if they make one for that title. I would guess that one is high up on their list to do.

Backglasses are floating around. I had to hunt one down myself a year or so ago. Put up a WTB post for one.

Beacon domes surface occasionally, and the mechanical parts are available.

Is that the clear one? I was interested to see how it looked instead of the black.

I forgot that I'd need plastics as well, lots of chipped and/or missing pieces.

When does a project become fiscally unreasonable. I love bringing games back to their former glory, but the parts alone are going to cost more than the games at this rate

Depends on the game vs your love of the game. I would argue that High Speed will always be a popular game and you could at very least get your money back on parts assuming you didn’t overpay for your initial machine.

Marcospecialltistpinball.com has a lot of parts for that machine in stock. I am working on reproducing the topper and helicopters for the play field.

I have a complete board set for High Speed. Everything tested and working. No hacks. Includes MPU, power supply, background sound board, 50 volt flipper board, master display board, and 5 working displays.
