So I got this nice HUO LOTR from a pinball friend. After spending nearly 3 years restoring a TZ, parts everywhere in the house, multiple stop-and-go's, months without doing anything, I swore I would never do anything like that again. But once you get used to a mint condition machine and a clear coated playfield, it's hard to go back to playing a game that hasn't been at least shopped. Being a LOTR on top of it, I couldn't resist.
Since there hasn't been a LOTR cleanup documented, I thought I would share a few pictures of what I have been up to.
