Just as the title says.

Posting "throw it away" will be ignored. I want to keep this out of the trash, and completely restore it.

I've looked up some info, but there isn't a ton of stuff out there on the company or machine.

Never seen one of those, but it looks whack. In a good way. I think.

I have an extra NOS PF if you're interested

Wild looking machine from the few pictures there are. Can you post some playfield pictures? And, uh, a close-up of that translite.

There's a restoration page on the second link that helped me a bunch

Price on the Playfield? I only glanced at the machine at this point, but I want to do a full restore on this whacky thing. It's for a client of mine.

The link you posted above.... Is the exact machine we just bought. Those are pics of our machine. Those mods are all done to our machine. We bought it from papa.

I was blown away when I read that article. I'm still kind of in disbelief!

Pdxmonkwy: Thank you, let me see what condition this one is on. Like I said, I just briefly glanced at it when we bought it with the other machines. The Playfield could be pristine for all I know.
