Quoted from astyy:

Nice buy! Personally I'd happily leave that cab as original in my collection, just clean it up and polish best I can.

Have to agree. Looks much nicer in pics than I was originally anticipating...I would be leaving that all original (cabinet and playfield), clean it up/wax nicely and just enjoy it. Looks like a nice machine for the price...and got delivery included!

As for the coindoor noise, if it is the coin rejector coil, I would simply add the coil to my shopping list for when I place an order and fix it right once. If it is not going to be fixed, and just disconnected, be sure to not just leave the wires laying around to short out (tape/nut off at least). Also, don't go ripping it all out as the next person (should you choose to sell it down the road) may be happy to do the repair. I see enough doors hacked apart etc...makes it much harder to put back right later on....

Congrats DanDaMan on first pinball.

Enjoy It!
