My buddy jaymach1 and I just picked up a Harlem Globetrotters on tour for a project. It's in pretty rough shape and we need to restore a good part of the playfield.
I am looking for some good hi-res photos of the top portion of the playfield. The worst part on ours is the upper left 25%. We might need to do a combo of paint and water slide for that wave. The best would be a straight overhead shot. Thank you for your help!

A-ha! So you're the one! I was second in line for that pin.

From earlier photos it looked like water damage.

Good luck with the restore. I'm rooting for you!

LOL Yes I'm the one. It is hurting pretty bad, we are thinking a mouse made a home in the top left corner and well added his own water. The nest was removed but plenty of evidence left behind. A few of the pop bumpers have nibble marks. There is some odd un-explainable damage to odd spots including the shooter gauge. The game definitely has a story. We are going to do a full strip of the PF and go from there. It should be a fun project.

I have lots of photos from a previous restore, I'll check whether I have a straight view of that area.
Otherwise I also have a few spare HG playfields, I can scan that area for you.
Send me a PM with your email address. Is it urgent?

Just Wanted to circle back and provide some updated project photos. PF all done, Back Box All done, just finishing up the Cabinet and Electronics.
Will load up more pics shortly, PF is all Cleared and fully populated at this time. Thank you g94 Couldn't have done it without your scans. jaymach1 was the man behind the airbrush. This was our first PF Restore and are extremely happy with it. Sure it might not be perfect for everyone. But it's the best Harlem Globetrotters I've seen. Moving on to a Paragon and a Xenon next. Once it's fully assembled I'll post the finished project.

That game would look really cool installed in a cabinet If only I had a stencil guy
