Topic title says it all. What a shame. ebay.com link » Williams White Water Pinball Machine Project Parts


2 years, 11 months ago

Ahhh, that will clean up, just a little route dirt


2 years, 11 months ago

I've seen some brought back to life and restored from this state but very sad to see


2 years, 11 months ago

I was for some reason tempted to bid when I saw this. I am up for a challenge, the only reason I wouldn't give it a shot is the missing topper and trans.


2 years, 11 months ago

This shit'll go for about 1k the demand for it these days haha.
This sucker looks like it's been rafting!


2 years, 11 months ago

If I send that to a high end restorer it will look amazing!


2 years, 11 months ago

At least the seller indicates serious regret when it was brought to him...as opposed to some idiot putting a BIN on it of $2500 because of the title.

After a few gallons of Novus 3 it'll be good as new!


2 years, 11 months ago

It would need a new cabinet and art, IF the PF is not water damaged, that's a big if, it could be restored. All the boards are there, they should not have been affected really, wiring harness, another big if. Add in ramps, plastics and the 100 other things it would need like replacing rusted screws, light sockets, ugh, that could be a money pit. Would add one more machine to the pool and someone would have a huge labor of unbridled love, could be worth it


2 years, 11 months ago

Heck, I'd want it just so I could post up the before and after pics.


2 years, 11 months ago

OMG, Why are there bids? That WWH2o is in $HIT Condition

That thing is beyond restoring, for the money and time that would be invested its not worth it. Let's hope someone is buying it for parts?

Its a parts machine. You need a new cab, pf is a maybe, it doesn't look water damaged hard to tell with the pics tho, all the mechs would need to be replated, the boards a big if, etc etc.

It is worth 100 in parts though, probably more.


2 years, 11 months ago

I was actually considering it for a project. The 20 hour round trip to pick it up changed my mind.


2 years, 11 months ago

I hope HEP restores this WH20.


2 years, 11 months ago

That is the worst I have ever seen as far as condition. I'm really suprised people are bidding. There should be a buy it now option, and the price should be 1 cent.

This thing obviously sat out in the rain for a long time, what are the odds the metal pieces are corroded? Including the boards.


2 years, 11 months ago

OMG! :0 ! A genuine Katrina model Whitewater!


2 years, 11 months ago

Where's the topper? Speaking out of ignorance, what could be salvageable?

Worst shape pin I have ever seen. Had to be in a flood.


2 years, 11 months ago

If it were within driving distance, I'd buy it for the challenge


2 years, 11 months ago

If it was local I would look at it as a parts machine not a restore.
To each there own. At least all boards looked intact. As for the rest who knows what is there and what is salvagable.


2 years, 11 months ago

To anyone ever doubted the A-list status of this pin, here is your rebuff, I guarantee it will go for over 800, you just watch!


2 years, 11 months ago

waste of money


2 years, 11 months ago

Did someone attempt to fill it up with actual water? It's not suppose to be a pinball aquarium. That looks like it came from the great PAPA flood.


2 years, 11 months ago

With nine days to go over five hundred bucks, who says bigfoots not real?


2 years, 11 months ago

Man! I should sell mine!!!

Wait,,,,nah...

Looks like a victim of flooding - not sure I'd even want the parts. Floodwater mixes with local sewage, resulting in unsanitary gunk.


2 years, 11 months ago

It's alright. It was just it's time to go. Was called to that great arcade in the sky. Where folks like us will play pinball, drink beer, and "all will be made new again".


2 years, 11 months ago

$535! Sheeesh! I really should have gone to New Jersey and picked that one up for $1800 last month - even if I had to walk!


2 years, 11 months ago

woah not sure about the playfield, did the water got to it?

$535 wow, too much!


2 years, 11 months ago

All the game needs is the adventure kit mod from the Missing Mount thread that sent tomdotcom off the deep end :-)


2 years, 11 months ago

Katrina is my guess as well. If thats the case. The salt water pretty much took care of any of the electricals as well.


2 years, 11 months ago

wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww


2 years, 11 months ago

Wow that sucks... makes my insides hurt.


2 years, 11 months ago

If this thing sells for 800-1000 bucks Im selling my whole collection on ebay.... either people are complete idiots or pin prices are just getting stupid for no reason.


2 years, 11 months ago

A DH cabinet and decals for $1500-1600, a few other parts, and a whole lotta cleaning and you've got yourself a winner.


2 years, 11 months ago

19 bidders and its up to 555$ wow!!!!! Who's bidding on this mess?


2 years, 11 months ago

That pin is so bad,
the Bigfoot died of Hanta virus, RIP...


2 years, 11 months ago

I like reading this thread each day to see what it's up to.. looks like it's stuck at 555 for the past 24 hrs... I like a good challenge but that's just silly.


2 years, 11 months ago

6 hours left.


2 years, 11 months ago

bah! A little Novus and she'll be good as new.


2 years, 11 months ago

I think as this sale ends, wh20 owners will have a big smile on their face,,,


2 years, 11 months ago

Item condition: Used


2 years, 11 months ago

If I didn't have a thousand irons in the fire already, I'd definitely go for it. It'd be a fun project, and this is why they make new cabinets...


2 years, 11 months ago

I wonder if it will break 1000.I am glad I bought mine a few years back when they were 1200 in good payable shape.

Yeah, the price for a WH2O has really soared. I turned one down for around that price like 6 years ago. It had a lot of dings/scratches in the cabinet, and some other issues, so I walked away. Looking back, I probably should have taken it and re-decaled it!

This one looks so bad because of the cab, but really go to any show and you can pickup a used solid cab for 50 bucks. 300 in decals later and it will be just as good as any cq.

The more I think about it the more 600 for it actually doesn't sound bad. If I wanted to make a game perfect this would be a good starting point. PF on it looks good, probably send it to kruzman for touch up and clear.

Really the kicker is the topper. Translite can be had, but that topper will cost more than the base machine.

Phoenix arcade is working on a repro topper decal with the foil.

This is just ridiculous.
The Mount Everest of restoration projects!
