    I think this might be of interest or at least help show some evolution so I thought I would put it up here.
    This is a 2006 WH2O HEP restore that had a customer supplied playfield and reworked cabinet.
    The link highlights what is involved in bringing it up to current HEP standards as well as turning it into what the new owner would like.The captions help describe the changes,shortcomings and concerns .

    It is building now and updating daily so it might be worth following since it is rare to be able to revisit and revise a previous restoration.

    I wonder how many games were on it in the last 10 years?

    Great job, Chris!

    Very interesting to see what has changed in terms of availability of parts and supplies, techniques, and long term effects.

    You know...your stuff is absolutely amazing. All I can say is that even a ten year old HEP example is better than most of us will ever get to own!

    Wow... now look at this full restore... Amazing.... very nice custom blue paint job to match the new generation decals..well this game was 9 years old and during the early period of HEP... and apparently initially in a bad environment... and HEP made it beyond new current... looks awesome.... very lucky new owner indeed...
