Quoted from WeatherbyMAG:

Stingray got a coin door/door trim & leg repaint. Loving the Rustoleum "hammered" finish paint.

I like the lever or whatever that is on the coin door lock, looks a lot better than a key - what is it and where can I get one?

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

I just got a Flight 2K for free!
That's really all I want to say.
Pretty worn out but it actually works. Can't wait to clean this one up and get it playing nice.
Should I keep the PC Fan mod?
I don't usually buy new plastic sets especially for beaters but figured in this case I'd splurge.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

See this archived ad - he has nearly a full set of plastics for sale. I just bought one of the pieces shown in his set, it was delivered quickly and easily.


#1102 10 months ago
Quoted from cottonm4:

The problem with that set is the plastic that is always broken is broken on this set, as well. In this case, there are 2 pieces of a particular plastic. Both are broken. It is better than what Levi has so he might be able to make it work for cheap.

Ah, I get it. Mine are not broken and I did not know there was one always susceptible to breakage. I bought the left side out-lane one - I still need the right one to replace my chipped one so if anyone has a lead on one, I'd appreciate it.

#1105 10 months ago
Quoted from cottonm4:

I can't fix your chipped one but you should consider getting some .030" Polycarbonate/Lexan and make your self a couple of protectors to keep them from chipping.
I mentioned the factory mod but I still think a piece of poly would be better to protect those two pieces.
You should also consider making a poly protector for that piece up in the back that likes to break.

That is a great idea, make them while I can. Is that material fairly easy to source and so I make them the exact same size?

Question - how do I get the metal standoffs off of the old plastic to reuse for the new one I bought.

#1110 10 months ago

So then the plastic gets soft and you can gently pull out - that makes sense. Then you heat the bell again and that will heat the new plastic and you push through. But wont that make the hole in the plastic too large?

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

You just need a cool free play switch mod like mine. [quoted image]

I have something similar to this in mine. It was mounted where the left price plate was supposed to be. I moved it from there, mounted it on a piece of metal and screwed it to one of those little rails stapled to the bottom of the cabinet inside the coin door. Then I set the switch to give 5 plays for every time I press it. Also removed the key lock and put in one of those little knobs that make opening the door possible w/o a key. Lastly, I fixed the open space in the coin door where the switch was with a new light and price plate.

This is a fun machine to work on. I am awaiting a play field protector once the place I am speaking to adds it to his inventory - I have a number of dished inserts.

Quoted from luch:

isn't easier to set the high score replay to like 10,000 points

Mine came from the guy I bought it from with the switch, I just moved it to a different location. All in all, yes much easier to set free game to 10k. )

#1220 10 months ago
Quoted from bluespin:

Not for a long time. I think Bay Area had some but sold out a long time ago

Can you replace with the metal ones? As noted F2K uses these and I'd like to have a plan just in case.

Similar problem with F2K. There are times when I really hit the target hard and it does not fall. Almost like it is not built to fall - does not budge. Other times, it goes right down.

Quoted from ArcadeRaid:

I have a beehive over cupped inserts on a Flight 2000. Completely flat now.

I have the same thing from Beehive - made my game playable again.
