Hi there, fellow road workers!
Apologies for that weird, resized pic of Red & Ted´s heads. It doesn´t let me delete it for some reason.
I bought my 2nd pin approx. 4 weeks ago and it´s a Road Show. My wife and me played one a few years ago and she fell in love with it - and i liked it, too. I´m actually collecting arcade games but i always wanted another pin and it had to be a 90s DMD machine. After seeing RS i knew which one i need. My other pin is a 1978 Lucky Seven (Williams System 3).
The RS i bought needed a good cleanup and some minor repairs. Playfield and cabinet are in good shape. Everything on the playfield was covered with a layer of dirt and i think it´s because somebody replaced most of the rubbers with black ones that were falling apart already. I had to remove, disassemble and clean lots of stuff, including Red and Ted. Both had problems with the eye lid coils/plungers. Later, I also did some small mod ideas i shamelessly stole from other members here. My wife helped with cleaning, waxing, then she painted the radio and Red´s lips and I installed a little toy loader.
ToDos: Order screws already missing when i got the machine. Adjust the flippers properly, get a new lock bar (the welding spots came apart on the old one), get the correct legs and a protector/cliffy for the outhole and blast zone.
