Yesterday I added a new addition to the family, a 1977 Gottlieb Jungle Queen Electro mechanical.
This machine was in surprisingly good shape. Cosmetically the cabinet showed its age and some artwork from 5year old's doddling on side. The tiger artwork on the side has a hat drawn on the head.
My intention is to focus on the mechanicals first then focus on the cabinet externals. The legs are rusted badly and front legs are missing threaded levels. Playfield looks fairly good and the back glass has flaking through out.
One relay is completely burned and needs replacement as well as all playfield rubbers needs replacement.
Part one of the restore is to get it working reliably and then make it less ugly externally.
