Long, not worth getting into story on this game, but all resolved now so I can keep you guys updated on it's progress.
Here's where she sits now:
Mike Chestnut plated the lockdown bar, legs, bolts, two wireforms, siderails and shooter housing. Have all but the legs and wireforms in which are in transit currently. I tore the playfield down to wood, cleaned heavily with Novus 1 and Novus 2, several layers of wax added, new rubbers, full LEDs added, rebuilt all 4 flippers with new coils, added a new Thing hand, Cliffys on vault, chair and swamp exit, target decals added on all targets, new Pinball, Inc. Ramp added and all parts swamped from old ramp, new leg levelers, backboard decal, Gold Pinbits leg protectors procured, added a new power driver board I got from John Wart, Jr, added a new DMD, rebuilt the DMD controller board completely (all diodes, zener diodes, resisters, block resistors and caps), added new backglass and trim and cleaned up outside of the cabinet and cloud topper.
Trouble shoot one opto problem, install new side rails, legs, bolts and wireforms, add a cloud LED illumination mod I bought, do some minor touch-up on the front decal near the flower with the help of the artist girlfriend, install new balls and then enjoy this game!
