Thanks a bunch! Definitely will keep’m comin! (I updated the video, and a better picture of the LEDs in the previous posts today)

Looks great. I can't imagine where you find the time to restore something so well and also crush folks in tournament weekly Looking forward to seeing it complete!

Looking great! I understand wanting to reuse any parts you can....I would humbly suggest purchasing new flipper bats....at least for the bottom two. Flippers take a lot of abuse and do crack. If you just add a couple to your next Pinball Life order or Pinball Resource, you shouldn't have to worry about again for a long time. Just a suggestion. Looking forward to more posts as you are getting close

Quoted from Sideways:

Here's a picture of the bottom play-field that I've had to put back together. I'll spare you the details of all the solder work that I had to do. You can see there are still some wires I needed to work on, but as of today, everything is soldered back together!
One thing I will say, is that the STANLEY 68-012M All-In-One 6-Way Screwdriver is literally THE BEST screwdriver to have when it comes to any projects on a pinball machine.

Hey, that's a great video right there!

I agree....the other video showing the LEDs also looks great. Current GC 4.1 million is most impressive

captive_ball - Great suggestion!! Yeah, it's just at this point I'm trying to put everything together as much as I can without buying more things – lol. On my next order, I agree with you though, it's definitely worth replacing.

Lol, thanks captive_ball. Glad you liked the video showing the LEDs! Regarding the high score, yeaaaah that's my high score on a 3-ball setting! I need to update my high score on pinside

You can see the last update on my high score was back in 2016: https://pinside.com/pinball/archive/flash-gordon/scores

Looks great. We clearcoat over overlays all the time. We usually let them gas out a month or two and if there is a bubble you just pin prick it.

Finally completed the project!
