Quoted from FalconDriver:

Do you have any pics of an Aero Pro?

Yes I have done some Aerosmith Pros... Here is a few pictures of one I made into a Refinery Editions and I took it to the Chicago Expo and John Borg loved the improvements that were done to it.

If you have any questions about it, just let me know.

Thanks for asking,

Steve

I just finished up with this Munsters Pro that I will be taking to the Texas Pinball Festival this week. I just wanted to post some pictures of the machine.

Nice Steve! Kind of reminds me of my custom TSPP somehow.

Still have your Demoman on steroids. Although I do not play it much, I kept it because it is so unique, my friend

#111 1 year ago

Love that speaker grill on Munsters !!!!!! I'm not a fan of green on pinball for some reason even on games that green fits the theme like Munters,Gb &afm.I'm thinking of going a dark purple on my Munsters if I do I'll give you a call.

Thanks... I did not want to powder coat the speaker panel on this one, so I came up with the idea for some spider webs painted on it. So I sent it to my talented painter and she worked her magic on it.

I was on the fence on doing this machine is a purpleish color, but I do a lot of them in that color pallet. So I wanted to make this machine "pop" a little bit more. If you would like it done in a purple, not a problem, I can do that. If you are at TPF this weekend, stop out and check out the green and I have a sample of the purple on a side rail that I can put up to the machine for you to see it. In fact, I will post a picture later with the purple rail next to the this machine.

Hey Steve, here is a quick photo of the night I got the Star Wars Premium Refinery Edition (sitting right next to my Metallica Premium Pinball Refinery edition). No photo can be captured to expose all the small extras that make this stock pinball machine shine. Besides, my iphone 6 plus does not take the greatest photos.

Great work man as I dig the Imperial theme color choice. As you see, my kids requested to play it first..... Dare I say competitive players in the future?

After this 2nd Pinball Refinery Edition purchase and compared them to stock games.... I see the beauty that really makes the game shine. I admit this is not for everyone, but if anybody is looking to spice up their game enough... Steve can execute the job and its worth it cause I would not be able to do what Steve did.

Thanks again and glad I bought this instead of a stock LE version. I'm not a collector, I'm a player but I like a little flash.

Steve does awesome work. Guests fawn over my Refinery STLE. And pictures don’t do it justice. It’s got a prime position in my main game area because of the wow factor.

I imagine it also has a spot in the prime game area as it does fit well with the Holly WOW awesome themed room! My god still my favorite themed game room on Pinside. And yes Steve hits it out of the park and had some more Amazing examples at TPF For all to share. Awesome work.

#117 1 year ago

Thanks everyone for posting your pictures of your Pinball Refinery machine on my thread. It was a long solo drive to and back from the Texas Pinball Festival show. The Munsters and Iron Maiden have new owners that are very happy and exciting with their purchase. Here's a few pictures of my area at TPF 2019.

Yelobird... Thanks for posting and stopping by my booth at TPF, it's always nice to meet everyone.

I will be attending the Pinball at the Zoo show in Kalamazoo Michigan the end of April with a booth. I will have machines, and parts available to be purchased as well.

Looks great Steve, I love that green powdercoat on Munsters-I thought it popped on TSPP but also really pops on Munsters. Only thing I noticed that I may suggest changing is the paper description of game taped over the beautiful coin doors. I would suggest a separate holder for spec info-so you don't cover up the front of machine at shows. Great job as always-they look stellar.

#122 1 year ago

zermeno68...

Thank you letting me know your PR Star Wars Premium arrived and it lioks sweet next to your PR Metallica Premium. When my son was younger I always let him have the first play on my new machine as well. It's something he will never forget.

Thanks for the input... I wanted the Monsters Pro powder coating to pop and this was the color that I needed . I know I hated to cover up the coin doors, but I was trying something new, (they were just wedged under the lockdown bar). I wanted to allow everyone to see the list of the upgrades and not put them on the back box area where they are too far away to read them. I will come up with a better place for them.

Hey Hemi, this is my Metallica Premium Refinery Edition #010. Although, I bought it, and had the Pinball Refinery in California do it up by a guy named Gio (Zdoor) back in June 2014, and recieved Delivery of it July 2, 2014. I recently searched for them, but appears they no longer in business. Do you supply all same stuff as Gio did? I got the works done with the interactive light board, under cab lighting, painted Sparky and hammer, wire form ramps powder coated candy purple, and all armor. The best in my opinion was the Apron. I should have done he coindoor, and shooter housing. I am kinda kicking myself for not doing those. I am recently thinking about taking the chrome t molding off and trying all purple molding or all textured black, or maybe black in middle and purple down the 2 outer edges, want to get your take on this on what would look good/better? Amazing work you guys do. Glad I had the machine done. It's my only pin too. Thanks

Gio was my old business partner and stopped doing it about 2.5 to 3 years ago. I enjoy doing these custom machines so I'm still plugging away with Pinball Refinery and I work with Cointaker as well.

Yes, I do everything you mention above and more with Metallica. I have revised a few things over the years with Metallica. I'm sure I can upgrade your coin door and shooter rod housing when you're ready. As for the t-molding I usually just leave the factory chrome one on, but that's easily changed.

Thank you for posting your Metallica

Your machines really stood out at the TPF Steve. That green on the Munster's Pro looked even better on person--you never cease to exceed expectations!

Thank you for your post/input... I was on the fence on what color green to use on the Munsters Pro and this one fits the machine, it stand out from the others. I know the new owner of the PR Munsters Pro that I had at TPF is VERY happy with his purchase.

It was great meeting everyone at TPF and I look forward to the others shows later this year.

I'll be interested to see what you come up with for the Black Knight Premium Steve.

#130 1 year ago

I will definitely have some sweet upgrades available for the Black Knight Sword of Rage or just order/buy a Refinery Edition of the Black Knight and it will be killer...

#131 1 year ago

I've been a HUGE Black Knight fan since I was young teen back in 1980. I have a very nice original BK in my collection for over 15 years now and it's now going to have a newer brother from Steve Richie... i can't wait.

I finally received and finished 2 out of 5 Monster Bash LEs for my customers to have them customized. These LEs are beautiful right out of the box but I wanted to add just a few little touches to make them incredible.

My painter did an amazing job on all of the playfield figures, toppers and coin doors. I also installed a few more upgrades, but the painting is over the top.

Let me know when you think,

I'm now doing all of the powder coating at my shop from now on. I was having a company do it but they were getting too busy and their turn around times too long. So I purchased all new equipment so I can get orders and machines done sooner.

Here's a few pictures and a video of the powder coating I've done for the 3 Black Knight LEs I'm currently customizing.

It's crazy looking.

I finished up with a Elvira Premium a week ago in the green as well. Look perfect on the machine and it will glow like this Metallica does. I did additional lighting effects on the castle, behind the castle, the scoop for the Deadheads, interactive apron flashers and speaker lighting.
