I’m far from a master restorer, no where near the likes of many on pinside. My first cabinet restore and playfield swap, was a Bally Star Trek. I’ve done a unique Monster Bash which I’m honored to have been listed as one of the pinside top restorations documented. A TZ, a couple of next gens, had a hand in a BTTF cabinet, a couple of Aliens, a TBL cabinet, and a skateball to name a few.. but with all of them there is a lot I would have done differently. Maybe I rushed aspects of it, cut corners places, didn’t take it as far as I would have liked to, or just outright did things wrong. This time, I want to put forth my absolute best effort, and see where it goes.
My objective, is something that looks true to the original, with an extra bit of glimmer and shine. Quite simply, I want to make the worlds most beautiful, most reliable, and most desirable Black Hole ever.
The vision is somewhat clear, but still taking shape. So instead of lay out a concrete path, I hope to consistently surprise you with “wow” moments. Nothing over the top in terms of mods and gawdy add ons. But very classy, and mostly based on the original look and feel.
Where I’m starting from, I have a long way to go. It may take a long while, but I hope we both enjoy the journey, and I hope that some day you can play it if we are ever able to have pinball shows again.
