    Is it worth it to have somebody restore my original coin door or should I just buy a new one. Are there any issues with the new doors vs originals i have neve had to change one until now

    I bought one from PinballLife for my TOTAN and it's great, fit right in and was plug-and-play in every sense of the word.

    I like the original doors especially the WPC with the long 2 slot bezel and 3 raised panels. If one of those I would restore.

    I know some games came with different door styles, but this is what I would look for.

    You know what I think that’s the door I have. Now the question is who restores them.

    Keep it as they are not remade in that style. Sldnt b hard to strip it and fix any damage and repaint or powdercoat.

    In that era, WPC games came with different doors. You can usually tell, if your model has "w/DBA" or "DBA RDY", then you wouldn't have had a three-slot door like the one pictured.

    That door pictures is an Entropy door, I believe. I like them - but I prefer the single-slot doors with upstacker (bottom) plate.

    Was this specific door style ordered by the operator?

    Usually, yeah. (At least, when I was purchasing games back then..) We'd tell the distributor 'Hey, we want 3 Twilight Zones, with ability to accept dollar bills.' and that's what we would get. I'm not sure if WMS installed the coin doors to order (i.e. Distributor then submitted order to WMS if they didn't have any in stock), or if WMS had a 'stock' of pre-made ones and shipped what they had.

    Thanks for the info.
