I would be happy to re-draw your piece for you if you think you can find someone to cut / print it?
I can try to match original color with fade of course.

You can get a plastic protector made for the broken piece and glue it. Upkick Pinball out of Houston, TX (they are a vendor her) did that for the center plastic on the Domino I restored. The plastic I had fixed was in way worst shape than yours which look like a clean break.

I appreciate both the offer and suggestions. The plastic in the game now is broke in the same place and the one I just got is broke.
I made some make shift plastics for the other piece of this game that I was happy with but I’m going to consider cleaning these other duplicate originals and flatten them and see how they look in the machine. With that being said the thrill of the hunt for an unbroken original has its hooks in me. Had these been in a box I would’ve won this battle haha.
If I change my mind I’ll let you know Atari_Daze about the redraw.

Not to worry, photoshop can put it back together again!

These plastics I got must’ve been from a later or earlier run from what I had in the machine.
These have more holes in them for the posts.

I needed to find some more taller posts on eBay but the problem is finding screws that will go through them.

I decided to steal enough long screws from up top to go into the longer posts on the lower playfield and replace the upper playfield screws with 2” machine screws and attach a nylon nut under the playfield.

Gave her a wax and she’s ready to show off her new “old” plastics.

Still love this game!

Very cool! Man, with all the time you spend with pinball I would think it’s your full-time job. LOL.

Thanks for the pictorial chronology. You did outstanding work. Bonus that it was on a game with chrome flippers.

Pulled this baby out of the game room to make space for Strato Flite. Torn on whether I should keep this game in the workshop or list it. What would a fair price be for this one?

#111 1 year ago

Hard to believe you’d part with it after all the work you put into it. It would be really difficult for anyone else to put a price on it.

I understand, I’m out of room too. I’ve got 6 of 14 machines that are never leaving the game room so I’m guessing your other 9 machines fall into that category.

Yeah that’s the biggest problem I have really is selling after a resto. I don’t really want to sell any of them but I don’t know what else to do other than just horde them

That's the conondrum isn't it? If your lineup is limited and you chose this pin to come out then the die is cast, is it not?

It's a great looking game and the restoration you did is, as usual, top notch. But yeah, it is a 2" flipper game.

How much is a storage shed from Home Depot or Lowe's

I hate to think of storing them in uncontrolled environments but it's that, route it or sell it for $800-$1,000.

I've already come to terms that I'll lose money as I find them and restore them. Honestly, I'd have to really love a pin to go the the retoration extent that you do. It is hard to let something go that takes so much time to not only get looking great but playing great as well.

It is a labor of love.

You need a bigger house, that's all.

I just gave it a nice wax and played a game. Even though it’s a 2” flipper game the flippers throw the ball all the way up to the top pretty hard. Getting all 3 stars lit and going after that special is great on this game.
