I just joined the club last night. I had never played one before either but a combination of reading the posts here and the price swayed me to give it a try. The machine is almost 100%, the only problem it has right now is the T-Rex isn't picking up the ball all the time. Looking over the playfield I didn't see any wear other than minor wear on the scoops. Nothing that a cliffy won't cover. It is going to need a good cleaning and the ramp needs to be flame polished. I will be switching it over to LEDs and since I love modding machines, this will be a perfect one for me.
It is missing the topper so I will need to find one for it. The other issues is the side rails each have a dent in them in the same spot like something was dropped across it at one point or something really heavy laid across it. The dents are small and I missed them at first. Not sure if they can be hammered out or if I will just need to replace them.
Any advice on where to start with the adjustment of the T-Rex would be great. Also any links to JP mods would be great. I already have the link for the scoop light mod and I just emailed cliffy. What are some of the great mods out there? I will get some better pics up when I get a chance. These were taken at 10pm last night when I unloaded it.
