Quoted from cosmokramer:

Boob, I will be following this one close as my next project after the Pinbot will be a full resto like this...thanks for taking the time to document and share

I will also be following this VERY closely.....although I don't know why.

Quoted from beelzeboob:

I know why...so you can tell me I'm an asshole when I do something wrong.

Doesn't matter whether you do something right or wrong. I'm still going to call you an asshole!!

Quoted from beelzeboob:

I'll be the first to proudly admit that painting is my weakest skill in restorations.

It's all in the wrist. Seriously.

When I grow up, I want to be Bryan Kelly.

In your dreams, Boob. In your dreams. As of two days ago, I've got one year until I retire. You've got four.

Suck it up, bitch!!

It all looks good, Boob. I have to laugh at your labels on the coil mechs, though.

Gates. Like you'd confuse those for anything else!!

Diverter. See my comment about the gates.

Left sling, right sling. All the fucking parts are the same!! The only difference is the coil points a different direction on each and if you take proper pics of all the coil mechs before you take them apart, you'd see that.

Left flipper, right flipper. Um, you can't fuck those up if you tried.

Martians. See my comment about the gates.

Honestly, you don't give a shit what all those things do. If you took proper pics of the underside of the playfield showing them all, just put them back where they were.

Now that I think about it, you better get that ball trough marked. You might put that where a gate goes.

Quoted from Zitt:

I realize this is Boob.... but there is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with over-labeling stuff.
I guaranty he won't have labeled something he needed to.
I so want a AFM Playfield.... so I can build a AFM one day;
But the reality is I have so many projects now; I doubt I'll ever finish.

Boob knows I'm just giving him shit. There is no such thing as too much information or too many pictures. Once he's done a few more games, he'll see what I mean.

Quoted from beelzeboob:

FYI, Bryan...I'm using an ultrasonic to clean my harnesses. I know you like to lovingly caress your harnesses with Purple Power and a paint brush. Just giving you a heads-up to avoid any offense. I've labelled the ultrasonic so that I remember what it is and don't lose it.

I picked up an ultra sonic after I finished the IJ a couple years ago. I still use the paint brush on parts once they come out. Try it and you'll see what I mean.

Quoted from flynnibus:

I just started with my cheapo hf ultrasonic this past weekend after having it the box for like 2 years
Do you guys normally have to rinse the items or wipe them down after a cycle?

Yes, I rinse well then blow dry with compressed air so I don't get any water stains on the metal parts.

Quoted from beelzeboob:

They were both Phoenix Arcade decals.
PA decals scratch REALLY easily, from what I've seen.

Not sure what's up with the artwork you've got, but I've used lots of Phoenix Arcades artwork over the years and have never had an issue with scratching or durability. Darin's stuff has always been top notch.

Looks pretty damn nice, Boob! The mistakes you made I'm sure are no different than the ones we all make when we got started restoring games. Been there, done that, man.

Ya know, watching this thread is kind of like watching turtles fuck.

Hey. Someone had to say it.

#209 3 years ago

What was the reason for this thread again?

If I was doing that, I would've used a spray can.

My place. Tomorrow. High noon. Bring your spray gun.
