Swapped out the drop targets today.
When I picked this up it had Red Bull’s eyes in the valley of demons. Much happier now.

Did CPR finish their Paragon run? Has anybody heard anything? There's another thread saying they are shipping Space Invaders playfields now.

I have entered the Valley of the Demons.

Anyone know where I can find a Rubber Chart for this beast?

I started to restored "Paragon Pinball Aprons" some months ago. I stopped my work because I could not find main font of some little text (example: "We make the games...") using seaching engines, but I started a manual seach some days ago and I found it yesterday!

"Paragon Pinball Aprons" (BALLY) for to restore in Zona Arcade & Mikonos.

I designed these Paragon apron cards and coin door inserts for jamon and wanted to share the pictures he sent me. If you would like a set too, I just put them in my pinside shop. The cards are laminated cardstock $7 and inserts are $5 each. These are an inexpensive way to give your machine a little pizzazz.

Like the Cards, though they need more Cheesecake to fit Paragon. Or, at least to go on my Paragon.

Those Coin inserts are Dope, though!

Well, I finished the Main Paragon Pinball Apron, but I´m not happy with display snapshot because you can not see all designing details I chose and how accuracy is my restoration work. For this reason I´m preparing an extense comparative with samples and some explanations.

I´m working in Paragon Pinball Shooter Apron too.

Well, here is my restoration in details. I think you will undestand all my decision and improvements. Opinions all welcome!

I don´t like to vectorize but with pinball aprons I think it is the right way in most of cases. All this Apron was vectorized.

Got Paragon as my first pin a little over a year ago and decided shortly thereafter to go in over my head and take a perfectly functioning machine (more or less) apart in an effort to preserve the play field, which looks pretty good imo for being 41 years old. Plan is to touch up a few wear spots then clear it. Putting it back together will be the real challenge

My latest adventure...

Local friend, he says take my time, fix all 3, keep one.

Why yes, I can manage that!

Wow, three Paragons! This is not usual!

Tell me if I can hel you!

HUO Paragon for sale:
https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/ad/101962

Worn PF but the nicest OE cabinet I ever saw. Why the seller would post a pic of the OE battery without installing a NVRAM at that price point is disappointing.

Remote Battery Holder is sufficient and costs about $15 to buy and install take minutes.

If the Cab and glass are as clean as advertised (and they appear to be) I don't see much wrong with that pricing at all.
