So I just picked up this BEAT and I mean BEAT Continental Cafe for $50. Girl who sold it to me said it was in her arcade owning family since it was new and she just didn't have the time or interest to fix it up, but it had sentimental value to her. Used to reside on the boardwalk in Wildwood NJ was the story (looks like it resided outside under a porch too, mildew stink!!). I almost passed on it, but I was looking for something to "try" my restoration skills on before trying them on other games. I bought it, so here I am. Playfield is OK, not terrible but back glass is real bad. About 1/2 is missing. Some water stains, mouse droppings, rust, and the cabinet paint sucks too. BEAT all around. The only thing is the inside looks pretty good and not too hacked up.
Before you tell me to turn it into a Whoe Nellie machine, I thought I would see if anyone had a real nice photo (high res) of a good condition backglass. Something I could use to Photoshop and possibly make a new one. They don't sell them and personally not looking to spend a lot on a machine that will never be good, but could be OK and fun to play. I took a 22MP photo of what I have. Was playing around with some decent photos from the internet, but they are just not high enough quality.
May be looking for some parts too, especially the playfield plastics which were REALLY beat, melted in fact. Does anyone have any high res scans of these?
Figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.
