after reading about you polishing the metal parts so they dont gouge up the ball and wear the pf, it brings up a part of pinball maintenance/restoration, I call tuning (like a piano) where you do little things that take more than an hour most of the time, just so a target stands perfectly straight, or a target has spring to it, rather than being dead when the ball hits it. super little things, but if you area perfectionist, it can be hard to enjoy the game if little things happen often. At one point in my pinball days I couldnt play route games because they made me so mad. Now I have grown to bigger and better hangups. One of my flipper buttons has too much play in it. Ha.
If I had to put a value on a game that is tuned in,(I have only owned 3) its an easy 500 bucks, and the guy who did the work is not making anything, because it works out to about 4 bucks an hour.
It sounds like the install kit helped. When I look back, my projects would be so much better if I would have had it back then.
Maybe next year you will have a game in mind for restoration. do you have a title or a couple titles you would consider doing?
Thanks again for the suport, again, I was very happy to be involved
