CPR made dr who? I didnt know. very cool

CPR made the Mini-Playfields that have been for sale on other retail sites like Marcos. Then they ran out a few years ago, but found a few more in a closet last year and listed on their site, and ran out again. They supposedly were going to make a complete playfield this fall, but I guess COVID got in the way.

I got an unused CPR Mini-Playfield off Ebay. At the time I did not know what "silver" meant that was stamped on the back. Apparently, the good ones were "GOLD" and long sold out. The "silver" one was off registration by 3mm front to back. That meant, I had to trim that much off the front for it to fit and be able to add the all important Cliffies to the front wood layers that got bashed by pinballs in the raised level 2 program.

Comparing original MPF on a Dr Who to a Silver CPR MPF.

#1604 9 days ago

wow that original is smoked. The main pf is roached, wow. was it a reimport? The size difference could be a problem, but its the same on the gold and silver. At least in my experience with cpr there is no difference between gold and silver, especially after 5 months when the wood cures. DR who is a really fun game that I really like. its seems most of them are rather worn. I know that more than half were exported. That mini sure looks nice installed with the cliffies (which are so necessary like you said). I will say it again, thank god for cliffy. a nice guy and makes a great product. I dont remember what game was my first cliffy, I think Gnr and of course I benmt it, and tried to unbend it and use it. It dont work, juts buy another.

Yesterday I got 80% of a Indy 500 painted. all of the inserts need to be painted. oh and I still have to match and paint the red. Finished the paint work on one of the DM pfs also. The other needs both blues and one of the gray matched which I have done, buit I have to start painting. That was the first pf from the batch of nos that I bought, and realized that I cant sand them with the DA sander. I use 600 grit and still whet right in to the paint.

Sprayed 2 coats on monopoly, Kiss LE, stones

Ron: Now you know why I needed to buy your NOS Dr. Who playfield. Yes it is roached, as you put it. The 15 red squares in front of the MPF were apparently sinking. The previous owner tried to fix that by pouring clear over them. But it just made them lumpy, like moguls on a ski slope. The game plays well regardless. The NOS will come back to you eventually for your magic.

The ski moguls made me laugh hard. first laugh of the day. wouldnt doubt it if its my last. working and living alone can have disadvantages. we shall see.

I didnt get finished on the metallica LE yesterday, I am going to hit it when I get back from fed ex and the auto paint store. I look at that pf and man what an awesome game. I forget who designed it, but its in the top of the last 20 years of sterns games. so much to do great toy amazing art, amazing music close to a perfect game. I bought one without even playing one, but when i have a $6400 game (premium cost new back then), its just a matter of time before a roof or transmission, or april 15 taxes or some BS comes up and I have to sell it. Happens every single time. I guess the good thing is pinball is so liquid.

If you are waiting for me to finish your IJ (not the one that just came in a month ago), BH, or WWF please drop me a line, your pf is complete :}

If anyone is restoring a pf and needs to redo an insert, I have insert decals for like 80 -100 titles. some I had custom made in germany like IJ that are as good as the art on the pf, a bunch of them came from planitary/bay area, so they are all licensed, except the german, and the water slides. Its fun to look theu them and guess the game. These are just a couple. I took a bunch of pics.
When I was restoring pf these are worth their weight in gold when you have a blown out insert or ghosting, plus there is stuff like the area under the slam ramp on FT. Places that are known for being worn on most games of a title, I spent over 1500$ on these and prob used 12 decals total. so i would like to sell some. Obviously cheaper than what they are selling for new.

Its been one of those weekends where I am spending all day in the studio, but at the end of the day nothing is done. Today is the worst and I am going to stick it out till its done. I came in for some advill and caffeene.
I was halfway thru polishing a stargazer pf, and you cant see them until you get in to the glaze polish. There were 3 little boogers in the clear that were originally under the surface but when I sanded the surface moved down and part of them is exposed. if they were not directly in the frickin center, I would have let it go, but I gotta make it flashy, so I got the 600 grit, by the time I got up to 2000 grit, 90% of the pf is sanded. each time I went up in grit, I have to make my area bigger, so soon as this kicks in I am going back out.
Louis meds for butt worms still have not come and he even crapped the bed last night. his not mine. I have been cleaning up pudding for 2 weeks and its pissin me off to no end.
I got some coats down on monopoly and hobbit. 2 on each.
I am at the point where I need to da sand and hand sand a bunch of pfs that have been coated and cured (almost) bally st, lotr, stars, Kiss LE, tspp, paragon.

I hope everyone is enjoying their big weekend. it has me so screwed up. I kept thinking yesterday was sunday, and today seems like monday.

Same boat here Ron. You know my schedule, one day off on Thursday and my internal clock goes haywire. Which is why I’m posting at 1:00 in the morning.
