Quoted from MustangPaul:

Sad to hear Chris.

Yeah, it stinks, part of life, unfortunately.

#852 3 months ago

So back to guessing what these are from... Anyone have a guess? I'll reveal the answer tonight no matter what. Winner might get a prize....
Limited to 3 guesses per person so make em count!

Answer to the above set is.... Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

I'm not sure I've ever posted pics on my thread of mine, but we debuted it at TPF this year.
We did all the trim and playfield metal in polished copper with a clearcoat. Came out very nice! Pic is myself and John Borg, who designed the game at TPF(photo cred to our friend Brian Adelstein). He was incredibly kind to come and spend almost a hour with me and tell all there is to know about Frankenstein. It was a true honor to have him hang out and now call him a friend!
It really is the perfect title for copper, and we can do it for you too on something you are working on. We also offer a satin copper which is really cool.

I will be carrying the wireform set for Frank in BRASS AND COPPER for exchange from here out! They are at plating now getting ready for my shelf and for those wanting to exchange them.

Thanks for looking!

Ya, I would have never gotten that one Chris.
That machine looks incredible!

#855 3 months ago

I never would have guessed it either, I've never seen the game in person before. Man that copper fits the game perfect, it's beautiful. My amber Leg Lights would look perfect on that game

WOW, that looks Awesome!!

That is a kick @ss color combination. I love it! Great job. I was thinking of doing my Addams Family with black nickel but now may reconsider.

#858 3 months ago

Thanks guys, yeah, it's kinda something special when you see it. I'm pretty happy with how it came out and proud of the work our guys have put into it.

Quoted from hillbilly:

I have thought about stocking a few sets for WPC stuff on the shelf in copper... let me know if you get interested. Might push me to do some.

Question to Chris or whoever wants to chime in. If you have had metal ramps plated or powder coated how has the finish held up to the abuse of the steel ball. I have a TZ I am going to soon get some stuff plated and am wondering if chroming ramps will last.

We do both, and for a game that is going to be in your home, either is probably fine. BUT... plating is def better at holding up over time. I think we see that from powder coated wireforms from older games (TMNT or Simpsons) vs plated ones.
Glad to help however I can. Thanks!

We are not displaying a booth this year due to our newest member of the family coming anytime, that being said, I do plan to be around and you guys are welcome to place a order for parts, which I can bring to the show, exchange or new stuff, and save on shipping. Glad to help however I can.
Hope to see some friends here in Nashville over the next couple of days!

You can't buy from the site, you have to email... in case that's your issue but it's stated on every page that you must do that.

Adding Rocky and Bullwinkle to the exchange library. If yours look rough, send them in and I’ll send a set of these back. I have two sets to exchange with.

It's messy work bench day!
Working through more of our custom chrome leg bolts (all of which are the extended length version), doing quality control and getting out a big order. This might be one of our best selling things. I have collectors that buy these for every game even if they don't buy anything else. We grind them, just like Mike did, then plate them. 40 sets going out to a customer here. Hard to keep up with having them in stock to be honest, but we manage.
Hope everyone is having a nice cold Saturday, thanks for looking!

Not pinball related, but I don't really care. Years ago I sold my old Bronco, and we've missed it since. Today I finally got another. It needs a few things but it'll get there.

Money to burn is what I would have if I could afford one of these done these days...
I call it, not afraid to do the work, and maybe calling in a few favors from friends to help bring it together. It'll be a while, need to wait till we build a new shop/move before we really jump in on it, but the project was cheap and I at least have the truck now for when we can do it.

I'm jealous as hell.... I had a 72 Bronco Sport 302. I LOVED that truck. Someone stole it out of the parking lot of my apartment complex for the stereo and they put a brick on the accelerator and blew the engine. Insurance company totaled it and it was their policy that they couldn't resell totaled vehicles back to the owner. It went to auction, likely as scrap, somewhere. Makes me sad to this day thinking about that.

#898 35 days ago

$120,000 - $180,000. I loved my old Bronco, but for that cash I'm buying a Lambo, Ferrari or Aston Martin.

That stinks man. Hate to hear stories like that. I've missed mine ever since I sold it. Did so to buy a fastback, but at the time got enough to buy a project car fastback, and didn't have any money to restore it, so it sat and did nothing till I sold it. Just glad to get one. It'll be a while before I jump in on it, as I have a list of things to be done before that can happen, but we have it and it will be at the front of the cue for project cars I have waiting on me, lol.
