What is the best approach to replacing standup targets in my Seawitch?
I'm going to be attempting my first CQ restore, and I'd like everything to be "new" or "like new"
-mof

1. clean/repaint/mylar these?
2. buy white and blue decal/mylar?
3. buy white and self-paint/mylar?
4. buy NOS somewhere?
5. other ideas?

thanks,
-mof

My Nine Ball has this same star pattern on the drops...

PBR does't have these? I've got a seawitch in my restore queue too, so this is certainly something I'd like to find out as well.

If they aren't available, I might be tempted to get plain white targets, create a mask, and paint the blue myself. Then wax the target and cover the face with mylar.

Or, you could print out the star as a decal and trim it out from the paper.

Well to be precise mof, the Nine Ball targets are rectangular and are drop targets, but those stars seem to be the same. Mines need to be restored as well, and I'm also wondering what's the best course of action.

Oh yeah, I got that mixed up.

But you own the machine mof, and you just started the Nine Ball owners club ! Those drop targets are the main attraction of the machine !

I'll keep that under my sleeve to tease you later.

I mentioned these to steve young @ PBR and he is going to do a special run for me. I'm not sure how many he was planning on making (since I believe that seawitch is the only game that uses this particular style of stand-up target), however if, in fact, he is planning on hot stamping just a few, I'll try and get 40 or so done so that people here can pick them up as well.

I'd like a set, please.

#10 5 years ago

I would be in for a set too. Thanks.

#11 5 years ago

dibs on a set please

#12 5 years ago

i would also be in for a set

#14 5 years ago

I'd suggest you guys contact PBR directly to express your interest to let them know how large of a run they should do, since it looks like it's beyond the estimate of 40 already.

#15 5 years ago

I'd like a set as well. I'd also like that lane flap if someone knows who has them.

someone talked about sending one to cliff to get him to reproduce them, but I never saw any follow up on that.

#17 5 years ago

I need a set.

The guy that bought my Galaxy could use a blue one, a black one, and a yellow one. Probably a few other games with the same issue.

given that I appear to have taken on the role as the "poster child" for all things seawitch, I've gone and contacted mr. cliff rinear about getting the spring steel flap re-made

Do we know for sure that Steve Young will not make more? Was he just unloading old inventory?

If it comes to working with Cliffy, I'll drive my new flap part over from Steve Young so he can scan it.

I bought a bunch of these sometime back at a show. Can't remember where but the person had bin's of them. Need to see if I can find them. I really did not want to mess with drilling rivet and repress.

#23 5 years ago

i contacted cliff and was sending him the flap to remake for someone on pinide. but that person got one from pbr so they told me not to send it in. i know cliffy will make them if needed.

I would like to see if it can be remade with a slightly stiffer spring steel, so you could theoretically make the upper orbit multiple times.

These are now available from PBR

thanks for the update ForceFlow. kind of odd that I never received an email from steve or jimmy on this

in semi-related news:
for those of you needing replacement wire forms for the in lanes, this part is the same exact length. you just need to gently bend it into the proper shape.

They were just added to the website this morning.

#28 5 years ago

I received an email from PBR about 15 mins after placing an email order with them for the stand-up target faces

#29 5 years ago

received my stand-up target faces today. steve & co. did a really nice job reproducing these for us
