Im starting to gather parts for a complete restoration of a funhouse...looking for suggestions on any parts/tips that will make this the best resto Ive ever done.
My plan so far:
New head, but I think the cab is still solid
New set of ramps from starship
New plastics, posts, fasteners, sleeves etc for playfield
New cab decals, screen backbox warning
Sending boards to Chris Hibler for service
Sending Rudy to Modfather for paint
Sending playfield to Neo for touch up and clear
New hinges, side rails, lockdown bar and legs
Restore original coin door
Yellow/red shooter rods from Modfather (credit to WackyBrakke)
New trap door
Leds with OCD boards
Clean, tumble, polish mechs
New lamp sockets
I was going to install a Mirco replacement playfield (used one on my TOM resto and it was great with no issues) but after reading a few pinsiders stating that there is an issue with the shooter lane that causes the ball to rattle around and not shoot properly.
What are the must have items or ideas that I have missed... im not really keen on a bunch of non-stock mods, but am keeping an open mind in case I find something really interesting or cool.
Im considering chrome for siderails, lock down bar and head hinges,,,I dont think there is a powder color that looks good on Funhouse (unless someone can show me some pics of their choices)
