I picked up this desolate earthshaker a week ago. Posting to the "What did you bring home today" thread I was told that it had been dropped off a truck while being moved. The head was shattered.
I dragged the pieces into my garage. Aside from the cut wires leading to the backbox GI everything appeared to be complete.
I plugged everything in and with a little help from my friend I was able to turn it on and play a quick game.
I salvaged the head pieces and got them to alwaysrockin777's place to be rebuilt. He's making a new head out of 3/4 AA Red Birch Ply. This is left over as scrap from a previous job and is way nicer than what is required. Today he sent me a pic of the head with the holes drilled and ready for priming.
I picked up some paint from Kelly Moore, the color Inky Sea is a great match. I'll use this on the head and the cabinet when it is ready.
To top off my day: The new backglass came in!
1. Straighten the cabinet
2. Repair and repaint cab
3. Deep clean playfield and new rubbers
4. Repair the backbox gi wiring.
I'll post more as it moves along
