Welcome to my new project and the Wife's latest bugbear.
In the grand scheme of things I am new to pinball, my limited experience is documented here...
...so yet again pandering to my masochistic tendencies (according to my female boss) I have invested in this.
The plan is to get this working again and have it in a coffee table, yeah I know many of you hate coffee table mods but space dictates that this is the route I must take for now.
Additionally I will be adding some extras like optical rollovers to replace the switches, optical sensors on the kickout holes (maybe), the star rollover will be replaced with an IR tripwire and there will be a battery driven attract mode, essentially a secondary set of LEDs mounted under the playfield running of an Arduino. Who wants a power cable running over the floor all the time.
LED displays will also be used as the originals were not supplied, I am considering mounting them at the player end of the table flat under the glass or maybe making a lift mechanism so they pop up at the far end, Arduino again.
Should also be incorporating self levelling horizontal and manual vertical (just to spice things up), as with two small kids the thing is bound to get knocked about.
Power cable will be retractable - Hoover stylee but without the foot pedal.
Shout if you think I am mad,
PS. I started this about a month ago but I am not beyond testing and cleaning stuff. I have got the proper rectifier board and a Squawk as well as a transformer. Feel free to chime in, good or bad as long as its not "I hate MMPM", ill set the kids on you.
PPS. Im going to be documenting the restore of what I have as well as the Mods. I used this forum branch as there will inevitably be more mods than restore.
