I’m shopping and rebuilding a jungle lord. I don’t think I’m going to paint the cabinet and the playfield has usual wear and I don’t know of an overlay…so it’s gonna stay the same. The original backglass is flaking pretty bad…I want to replace or get it rescreened.
My question is, what do you think is a more practical decision…translite for $150 (with approx shipping) or I can send my backglass away and get it reprinted and they keep the old mirrored paint ($450 with approx shipping).
Obvi it’s about $300 difference. And the quality of a translite vs a new backglass that’s been rebuilt (screened).
I don’t mind spending the extra money on the repo but realize that the backglass will now be a 10 out 10 in condition whilst the rest of machine will be like 6 or so.
I’m kinda leaning towards the translite cause I don’t think this is a highly sought after game. My logic says make it more marketable by keeping it less expensive.
Any opinions are welcome.
