Thinking of selling our nice Dr. Who to raise funds and space toward a GB, DP, or maybe even GZ. Haven't seen one of these come up in a while.

I purchased it from the original op who was cleaning a warehouse in 2015, he claimed it wasn't routed long and based on condition I believe him. Cabinet is super nice with no fade and only a few minor tiny scuffs. I made the mistake of using plastic leg protectors before that no-no was fully understood by the community; thankfully I caught it before much damage was done and proper standoffs are in place now. Added a color DMD in 2015 and moved the doctor-light panel to fit appropriately. Upgraded TARDIS sculpt with a better detailed unit; original is provided along with coin box and manuals. Has new lift bearing and target reset bracket for the mini pf. Only pf wear is the typical spots in front of mini pf. Recent shop job and tasteful LEDs. NVRAM added a few years ago; I proactively added the 5V shim board about the same time. No current credit dot or faults; the opto board was a little troublesome but I've reflowed it and added a light baffle, and it's been fine, but if a credit dot ever does come up this is the first place I would look.

What say you guys? I wanted to maybe trade this to a local op we know and have worked with, but they might be kind of full at the moment. Trying to see what kind of timely options I might have before waiting too long on them to decide, since I'd love to get something new in place while my kids are home for the summer, before the eldest goes to college in the fall...

Yeah I almost did same when I saw that pic! Gotta love vintage "brush-poke" (what's the actual term? 'Cuz I think "popcorn" is technically different?) ceilings...
