I’ve got a 4player Surf Champ that is in a long process of restoration. Pulled it out of a friend’s parents garage. Cabinet was painted a horrible brown color. Backglass pretty good, some flaking, playfield has wear down middle from cupped inserts, and around drops/kickout.
Cleaned up well, was able to get enough brown paint off cab to make stencils. So full cab repaint coming this spring.
Plastics and mechanics look great. Everything cleaned up nice. Score reals are yellowed, haven’t tackled them yet. First attempt I wiped off part of a digit straight away. Same with the art on the metal apron. I’ve learned a lot since then, much more careful these days.
Not sure about playfield...got seriously cupped inserts to deal with and some paint touch ups, I really should clear it to fix all this properly, but that’s a whole other ball game.
Hoping for Wade to screen some new playfields, that would be incredible.
I’ll post some photos soon.
