Let the games begin …
This was the condition of the game when I first got it. Going to be a lot of work

Gave the ball guides a nice polish before and after

MR_TANTRUM has the chicken plastic, DE chrome overlay, a decal for the clear plastic on the left above the slings. I bought all three. He may have other items for LAH. Cliffy has the three scoop protectors. The holes must be repaired first though.

Thank you for the info I am in the process of tearing down the playfield now I will be repairing all the holes next.

Small difference but worth it.

Should turn out great with all new parts..
are those machines in the backround on deck for the same treatment?

I also replaced those. I discovered after many years of owning LAH that two of the blue pop assemblies were cracked. I replaced all three and now there is so much more action from the pops.

I find as a general rule, most people neglect pop maintenance and don't rebuild them when they should for a few reasons.
1. When they fail, they don't cause a machine to stop earning money on location/working
2. They can still barely work with many broken parts and it may not be noticeable by most casual players that they are weak or need to be rebuilt
3. Most style pops are time consuming to disassemble and rebuild, usually because of the lamps inside and the fact that there are parts on both the upper/lower sides

A telltale sign of someone that cares about how a their machines play is a lot of rebuilt pop bumpers with working lamps in them.
