This is my first machine and the one that I've considered selling to replace with a nicer one on and off. The machine has been the most solid of all I've owned with only a few switch adjustments, sling rubbers replace and flipper switches recently. I have done a flipper rebuild and complete tear down when I got it but I was a newb and could have done several things better. Note that I swapped out a coin door and put a CT kit in here back then. I kept saying I'll redo the LED's when I do a shop job. Which is now almost 5 years with a few wipe downs over time.
The cabinet is staying the way it is: some ding and dents with typical faded art. I'd love to do a cabinet, but I just don't have the energy to deal with it right now. There will be new parts with some cleaning of old. This was an Italian reimport and by the oxidizing of many screws, it must have seen moisture at some point. There's all sorts of playfield blems: some bad planking by the pops near ramp, Free Ride insert has text off and poorly touched up, left outlane far screw was missdrilled, and all sorts of chipped inserts due to lifted inserts. It still plays awesome, but I love the game and when the playfields were made available, it was a great excuse to get one.
I started tear down to get the rails off for TaylorVA to replace. I have most of the top side done today.
