This will be to document a ST:TNG that was delivered for me to work on. This is my first STTNG I've worked on and know it will be a challenge. I will be bulletproofing electrically and mechanically which will include getting all the boards serviced, take the playfield down to bare wood, clean up all parts and replace anything that's needed: including plastics, ramps, subway, rails, usual things that you'd do if you took a game down to refresh the game to this level. He plans to have it fully modded so it will need to be able to support all the extra load of them.
We believe we're going with a new playfield with Ron Kruzman's clear work. It will also get a Pinsound board, sound system, and mirror blades. LED's where there wasn't already, new translite, Pinball-Mods pop bumper parts, ColorDMD, Mantis subway protector and playfield supports, Titan rings, new opto board, and more.
Already addressed the playfield pivot hinge system bolts (NJNeil already had new parts for it!) as they were really gummed up and the old support rails were bent. Working on a list of some things we need to fix as I being tearing down. New convoluted tubing will be replacing the brittle and broken ones. Will address parts on the cabinet, but I won't be doing any cabinet work for decals. I know my limits!
The rear upper diverter was gummed up along with the upper flipper. The ball trough boards have an error too. All of this will be cleaned and/or replaced but it plays just fine as it is.
