I was kinda bummed since I had to miss the JJP show yesterday, so halfway through the afternoon I absentmindedly checked LI/NY CL and the this was posted: longisland.craigslist.org link
Now, perfect it isn't, but it's as close to "like new" as I've ever seen a non-NIB pin. Everything works perfectly. Cabinet is unbelievable - no scrapes or scuffs, a couple of minor edge/corner rubs that just need a touchup with a paint pen. Boards and cabinet interior look like it just came out of the box. Perfect backglass/translight, apron, plastics, vortex ramp, displays, topper. All metal looks like new but needs polishing. Everything under the playfield looks like new, and for a nice change I won't have to replace any plungers or sleeves. Manual looks like it was just printed. Batteries just started the inevitable leak and will be replaced with a remote. Only thing I'm not thrilled about is that the playfield was never mylared, and is starting to show a little wear around the grid inserts. Other than that, and I know you guys hate the term, especially without receipts, but I'd have to say this was an HUO machine, it's that clean.
The front of the cabinet has a pair of Pinbot stickers attached. I've never seen these before, was this something that came with the game originally? My first reaction was to remove them but if they're Williams-issue, then hell, they add character to the game so I'll leave 'em.
I'm confused by the coindoor. This doesn't look like the usual Williams Sys9-11 door, yet all the hardware on the back looks straight Williams, and it doesn't look like it was ever touched. Plus when I checked my Pinbot photo files, about half the machines there have this same door. Maybe they subbed a different door sometime during the run, anyone know the story on this?
