I thought about it but add the painted black and a silk screen back and that's over $330 before shipping at that price I'll take a new set of ramps from Starship instead, my ramps are ok but new and clear is nice.
After i stripped it down and hit the corners with glue and clamps over night it was actually pretty solid and wasn't very hard to do. MDF is cheap also 30 bucks for a sheet for the back it was easy to cut also. From the pics the VP cabs head is missing all the bits and pieces to hold in the back glass and speaker panel and all the little pieces to mount the metal backplate perfectly also so mine has it all so just went ahead and fixed it.

Does anyone sell the stencil for the warning on the back of the head I know I've seen it somewhere before if not I'll just use a decal.

Been a long time without an update on the final restoration of the trio Totan. Been wanting to tackle the playfield swap myself and the cabinet but after a recent move I'm lacking the work space right now and In the middle of other projects as well so I just decided to let a local take care of the playfield swap, dropping off the playfield and CRP Gold repro tomorrow.

The cabinet is in the air, still on the fence about just buying a completely new cabinet from Virtuapin or trying to repair the ToM cabinet I have stripped already. Of the trio the Totan of course would be well worth all the work of the playfield swap and new cabinet I would still be will under buying another fully refurbished one now for sure.

Quick visit to perryd who is doing the playfield swap. All parts removed from old playfield and cleaning has begun, new light sockets going in on the harness. Lots of parts that surface rust already cleaned up and came out nice. Few pics from the visit

Few more pics after today's visit and parts drop off. Most top side metal installed with no issues with the clear cracking or anything.

Getting close. Found a actual Totan cab from a fellow Pinsider. Installed Mirco Radcals they look really good very shiny. Almost there can't wait till it's done.

Quoted from Pimp77:

I always laugh at this attitude. Some might consider buying them waaaay undervalued from some unsuspecting naive seller a "scumbag" move. Offering $3k for THREE great games would not be a scumbag move.</blockquote

Totan was finished a few months ago the last and most intensive restore of the 3. I finally got the 3 Amigos together for a family picture
More mods to come later on Color DMD's and at some point No Fear and Junk Yard will get new cabinet decals.

They are all Flippin Stong and alive again.

There were Tokens inside them all that came from an arcade in Destin Florida called Morgan's that a friend of ours from there said had closed probably 15 years ago. So they have been in storage for some time.

You don’t want karma like this on your head...best to clear your conscience now by offering the seller some restitution

Holy Crap Ive played that TOTAN! Had the high score on it at one time around 20 years ago! Probably played the others too but the Totan for sure. Used to go to Morgans all the time, I still have a stack of tokens from there. It was an awesome arcade. Congrats on getting them all going, what a cool score.

Wow now that is cool that you actually played it when it was on location. It looks like new right now, they all cleaned up great.
They are still getting shared, I've loaned out JY several times, took NF to the SFGE show in June and actually going to loan NF out this week to someone that wants to borrow it. Totan will probably get to show soon also for others to enjoy.
Our friends live in Niceville also, Destin is a Beautiful place the beaches are amazing.
