I found an IJ4 on Craig's List for what seemed like a really good deal. I went down and met the owner who had an insane collection (hundreds of machines, mostly arcade games, and that didn't count storage.) He had installed a LED kit which made the game look beautiful in the dark.
I paid $3700 for it. I know a lot of people don't like this machine, but I'm really happy with it. I'm a huge Indy fan, and am still on the hunt for a Williams machine, but this seemed too good to pass up.
Being a total noob, I do have a few questions:
1. Did I overpay? (I'm almost afraid to ask.)
2. It seems like it needs a good cleaning / rubber replacement. I took a close up of one of the bumpers - does this seem like 'normal' wear, or are these overdue to be changed?
3. There's some wear near the Sankara stone target. This part of the board gets hit a lot, and sometimes when it closes to capture a ball it rubs along the playfield. I took the glass off to have a closer look but it didn't seem like there way anything to tighten down. Does this need to be replaced? I attached a picture.
Thanks for reading!
