We're back!

After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.

Quoted from prowlerman99:

Here is a MM I did years ago before repro playfield were available. Condition of the playfield mirrors the rest of the game.

Is it just me, or did the previous owner love this MM a little too much.... just saying....

No, if he loved it he would have kept it clean and replace the balls every now and then.

I think he placed his balls every now and then.

HFK, I agree 100%, the MM was poorly taken care of... But when I said love, I meant "LOVE" in the carnal 'I humped my pinball" sense. Vid is tracking. Like the LOTR Backglass, once you see it you can never un-see it...

This is my Jacks Open, I got it from a guy who said it came from a place where it was sitting on the ground. Termites had eaten the cab pretty bad, but the playfield and backglass were pretty good. We got a cab and backbox from some very helpful Aussie Arcade members (Slevbro and Illawarra Steelers) Dad did all the woodwork and painting, then I made my own design sideart in vinyl.
Cab was severely termite damaged Head was half missing Donor cab Donor head, this needed restoring as well In undercoat Back together and repainted I made my own custom sideart from vinyl In the line up

Here is my Gusher, a huge amount of work, but i had wanted one badly and was tired of looking around. Funny though, after i was 90% finished, about a year into it, one came up on ebay that was in pretty good shape. Mine is practically new looking but now totally unoriginal, but at least its saved from the dump. The cabinet was also a wreck but now restored too.
