Quoted from RyanStl:
I don't think these are current prices you are going with; with $1,000. Kind of older thinking on project prices.
They are selling at just under 3k.
You can't 'assume' this will be an easy fix. You have to bake in the costs of time and money.
The color dmd is 550. Mpu is 400. Rubber rings are 30. Flipper rebuild kit is 80. Add taxes on top and waiting time for parts. We are also assuming this will get it up and running and nothing else is needed...which it may need more.
It will need a full shop job and cleaning as well.
That's around 1200 in costs, and likely a few months of time to complete.
If you paid more than 1000, you would just be better off buying one running already.
