If you get down to me in the next week or so you’ll have a shot?!

#102 16 days ago

I am sold on those pops. That was a great question to ask. I totally over looked them and how they would look. I always like extra light around the play area, so great idea on the extra spots on the slings. I want this game!

Installed his Tilt Graphics ball shooter plate and installed the rose shooter rod. I’m saving the spring I had in case the red spring is too much.

It even has a cool cover to protect it. Reminds me of the alcohol bags lol.

The bookcase is done! Despite using Rapid Tac, and my 3rd or 4th one of these, the upper part never fits well. And you need to install it with the lid on. It’s a crappy design and doesn’t want to fold. And when you do get it halfway decent, it overhangs and looks worse. So like the others, it went where it belongs. I’m not bothering install them anymore.

The wood look goes with the owners bookcase mod.

Supervisor was busted snoozing on the job. She seemed a bit annoyed by the photo. Lol

I just want to give the cat a little 'shooka-shooka' on top of her lil' head.

#107 13 days ago

We made contact! Some minor issues but I didn’t have time to dig into them tonight. But damn dat clear is shiny!

Quoted from kruzman:

That looks like a big cat!

She’s kinda tiny especially for her breed. She’s very fluffy but not tubby either.

#109 13 days ago

I like that wall paper inside the cab rather than chrome. looks like a creepy haunted mansion. I was so excited by this thread that I started looking for a taf to restore. I all ready have a couple repro pfs for that title. I found a roached one on pinside for 10 grand. I thought it was some greed insane person, and I asked my friend who routes and restores games, and buys a lot of them lately, and he told me thats the general range. So depressing. I paid 2400 for mine in 07 and it was so nice I didnt have to do anything but clean the pf.I am sounding like a broken record on the prices lately, but its depressing. Luckily I really enjoy almost every game from every era, so there are some I can still buy.
The great thing about TAF is a beginner will love it and a pro will not get bored of it.

#110 12 days ago

Agree 110% Ron! Chrome looks great on some titles like Demo Man and others but the side decals seem to work great like this one does.

This playfield is outstanding! The clear is so shiny and flat it seems like the ball will fall in like it’s floating on water.

Ironed out some switches with ramps, shooter lane and bookcase. Will do some play testing but looks like it’s about ready!

Agree 110% with this. I normally like to inspect playfields in person to be absolutely sure. I don't need to see this playfield in person. The image provided shows everything I need to know. The level of clarity in the REFLECTION says everything. The sharpness and lack of distortion says it all.

How about a few pics of that taxi. Looks pretty nice in the 20% I can see.

I still have the old playfield (Comes with Cliffy's minus shooter lane) and the plastic set. I'll be at Pintastic Thursday through the weekend and can bring them. I'll also donate to Pinside if sold.

#115 12 days ago

Is that the original cab art on the taxi? it looks amazing (as well as that TAF. the owner has himself an amazing game now. congrats!)

The Taxi has the Radcals. I usually don’t do cabinet stuff but this was an exception. It came out really nice but it was a literal barn find.

Thanks for the pics. Looked at the link also. Nice restoration. I love system 11 games and enjoy seeing them get this treatment.

Same here, sys 11 and sys 80 are my fav games by far. I would imagine because of my age. Well if I had more money, there may be more dmd games in my collection, who knows.

Final adjustments and play testing fully completed. Swamp switches needed some tweaks along with the ball trough. But that was it. Plays very fast!

Looks like it’s headed back to the owner over the holiday weekend.

Looks beautiful! So I'm assuming it passed QC?

You should seriously start putting stickers on under the lock down bar that say "Inspected by Karolina".

She said she approves. She’s old school and was trying to call here. She didn’t really understand the internet doesn’t work that way so she’s taking a nap after I tried to explain it.

It’s been a fun one and has just left so this one’s a wrap. Can’t wait to hear what the owner thinks when he has it.

This is absolutely incredible! This make me want a TAF more than I already do! Have to try to pick one up before they hit 20k for a project...

Very nice work!
