    In the last 2 years I keep buying them and can’t stop lol. Here is a list of what I have left to be redone. I own 23 pins.

    Fish Tales
    Dr Who
    Starship troopers
    NBA fastbreak
    Harley-Davidson Sega
    Slugfest
    Shaq
    Strikes N Spares
    The Getaway
    No Good Gofers
    Terminator 2
    F-14 Tomcat
    Guns and Roses

    Games that I have to just clean up

    AC/DC
    Metallica
    Tron

    Even with having this many problems lol I still keep buying. Ugh

    I have one true project pin, that I haven’t had time to work on for almost a year, and then one pin that needs a new cabinet (and isn’t worth making the cabinet for). I’m officially banned from bringing in any other non-working pins until the first one is back to being operational.

    I was told I can’t buy anymore and I have to sell some. Then the wife went to the shed and screamed my name. I ALREADY knew. Lol

    Four- One just needs stencils, one needs to be gone through 100%, repainted and stencils, ones needs to be stripped, painted and decals and the last is being stripped for paint as we speak after extensive cabinet repairs.

    Sorry but my wife might read this.

    0. Unfortunately all my machines are 100% functional. I do have 4 lamps out on my Future Spa but I need to replace an IC and be done with it. AKA I need a project real bad!

    Depends on what you mean by a project...., there all projects to some degree...LOL.
    I have ten games set up and playable that are staying in the collection forever that are waiting a playfield swap.

    Cactus Canyon (doing a cabinet swap on it as we speak)
    Spectrum
    Barracora
    Wizard
    Playboy, Bally
    Mata Hari
    Fast Draw
    Fathom
    Centaur
    Taxi

    Finding the time is the hard part.

    I have 5 projects. One of them, my Farfalla, has been on the back burner for four years now.

    What really sucks is when you have a pin you already shopped and now it's 10 years later and it needs to be shopped again.

    Quoted from Electronmagic:

    No, what really sucks is a game you bought twenty plus years ago and haven't shopped it yet because your too busy playing it.....LOL.

    Gottlieb Pin Up. Plays ok, cab is shot.

    United Bowling Alley. Bought non working, see my restoration thread.

    Chicago Coin Fleetwood bowler. Plays ok most of the time. Cosmetics could use a face lift.

    Yet I'm still looking!

    Just one, C37 that's stashed in my daughter's garage, hidden from my wife.

    I have stopped buying project pins. To me a project pin is anything that needs work beyond a full shop out, coil sleeves, flipper rebuild and general repair. Playfield swaps, cabinet stencils/decals, etc are no longer welcome here!!

    Recently I sold a Sorcerer project rather than working on it and I just completed a Paragon that I initially started working on three years ago. That said, I still do have the following projects in my garage. Once they are done, I hope to have the will power not to buy any more:

    Atlantis 1975 - needs playfield swap to brand new playfield
    Dodge City 1964 - needs playfield swap to better playfield and complete shop-out.
    2001 - I have a new playfield but the game is working fine without it!

    Its taken 3 years. Down to just a major shop job on Pinball magic. My poor Flintstones was crushed, head smashed into playfield. Its going on rotisserie, then cabinet fix and major shop job.
    Then the other 15 need all the mods I bought put in.

    #15 26 days ago

    1) Bally Strikes and Spares, prepping for an overlay install.
    2) Bally Evel Knievel waiting for hardtop install.
    3) Bally Night Rider, bought not working but cosmetically nice, need to look into that.
    4) Another Bally Night Rider, made a playfield protector for it but need to tweak it.
    5) Medusa - pf swap, but honestly, that's so far down the road....
    6) ToTAN - pf swap...please see #4
    7) KISS - pf swap...see #4 and #5...
    Recently purchased Indiana Jones needs complete shop job when I stop playing it.
    9) Couple optos need to be addressed on Space Station.
    10) Mods I purchased 10 years ago for Twilight Zone and others keep piling up...

    I'm sure I'm forgetting some things.....
