    Quoted from lint:

    Hey all,
    Hope everyone is recovered from Golden State.
    A while ago metal-mods gave me a package deal on on wedgehead backbox door and threw in an old Flying Carpet backbox he had with some spare parts inside. Thanks Jason!
    The backbox was separating and had a lot of damage to the plywood in the front and corners. After re-gluing it, filling major gaps and slimming it down a bit I decided to paint it and turn it into a chalkboard (Not an original idea. steamvette beat me to it). I plan on gifting it to my favorite local spot when they re-open, The Flipper Room! Hopefully they can use it.
    I just freehanded the design to look period. I think it turned out alright. Anyhow, hope you all enjoy.
    [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

    That is so strange... my wife and I were just talking about doing the this! Gift greatly appreciated and accepted!!!

    Thanks lint you are amazing!

    #5452 1 year ago

    Looks great! Glad it got some good use!

    #5453 1 year ago

    HEP restored Addams Family. Perfect in every way. Plays like a dream. About $1000 in add-ons including color dmd, pinball pro speakers, side mirrors, mods (light up fester, train, bear rug), etc. Serious inquiries only.

    $10,500

    Would consider trade (Sys 11 or newer) + cash. No junk.

    See pics here, though they don't do it justice

    I have played this Adams Family... it's ridiculous (in a good way). It's like playing a brand spanking new game. It's so frickin' clean. Ultimate collector's for sure.

    Do you know how to reach Chris at Sly Fox? The only # I have is 209-493-8871. I keep getting "the customer you're trying to reach, is not available"

    Any other # or email?

    You have a typo...PMing you

    #5462 1 year ago
    Quoted from pinballholder:

    You have a typo...PMing you

    also note from my understanding (talked to Chris last week) he isn’t doing any runs until the end of June. And he said he doesn’t know how many more in general he will do after that as he is getting married and his bride to be wants him home and not on the road. Which is understandable. He said he might try to do one trip a month and just line up a trailer full of games at a time.

    #5463 1 year ago

    pinballholder... Thank You! I did have a typo. I was able to reach Chris. He said he doesn't go that far up north.

    Thanks again for your help.

    *Next* Saturday, our usual Second Saturdays gathering in happening in cow-town Tracy, 1pm - 9pm. The crowd that shows up is half pinheads, and half casual players. PM if you're interested; my only ask will be that if you're having pizza, fill out the RSVP link I send you so I can size the pizza order correctly.

    Latest games: BK:SOR, JJPOTC, ACNC.

    #5468 1 year ago

    Sorry jfesler but Vacaville claims "cow-town" lol., check the history. Hoping to be there for a visit but not looking good at this point for the weekend. Thank you for always having pinheads over to have a great time at your place. Looking forward to hanging out soon.

    The owner of a golf course I used to work for just contacted me. He is looking for a Tee’d off in Sacramento.

    Condition is not going to be the most important thing. Fully functional is the key. They have no idea how to work on these and I don’t want to get roped in to much more than a routine cleaning.

    Pm me if you have one to sell and can get it to their golf shop in Sac. I will connect you.

    Anyone interested in a nice Family Guy? It has very cool Spooner Street blade art and Cliffy's installed, and it plays well. It was lightly routed a while back with some small scratches on the cabinet. It has some slight wear around the "N" insert that was repainted to touch it up, although I do have the "N" replacement decal. It's in very good shape overall. I am thinking of selling it to fund another game. Please PM me if interested. Thanks.

    I bought a unicorn Saturday from an awesome pinsider down here. Its a Mythology from France. It has no head.
    I need a James Bond Wide body head, 1980.
    I can get one built but just seems easier to ask the community up North. Maybe there would be one at the PPM sale this weekend?
    Does anyone know what game this apron came from?

    Quoted from roddog:

    Gotta swing by soon! Also need to get like 5 things framed. Can I drop off prints to the new location?

    We are in the process of finishing up the design room now, but I don't have any sample in there yet. However, we are literally a 15 second drive or a few minute walk from the main APF showroom and we can design there. But if you know what you want or just want to drop it off and let us do our thing then yes, you can hand it off there.

    Thanks!

    Hey all you NorCal Pinhead's... would love to see you tonight at The Flipper Room for our kick-off party. We are officially moved in and want to kick back and have fun.

    A couple of the writers/artists from the comic book/graphic novel team called Accidental Aliens will be there to show off their new book too. That's around 7:30 (ish)

    We will have some munchie food and beverages out. Feel free to BYOB if you want. We will have coolers in the back.

    Lets have some old fashion fun! We open at 12:00 today, but the main party starts around 7:00.

    Cheers!
