    My most saught after pin has entered my collection!

    It was well priced, well looked after, clean and the game art was up there with best i've seen for title.

    As this thing will be with me till the end, I want to make it shine like a new penny. But I've never done any of the repairs it needs.

    The following are very important to me as a pinhead:

    Backbox needs DESPERATE touching up (see picture)
    Cabinet could really use a redecal (I'm hesitant as redecaling has led to bubbles more often than not, and that worries me)
    Playfield is nice and clean, but could use a few non critical touch ups.
    Can the wood be touched up where chunks are missing?

    Also missing the key holder

    You old pros are incredible, so I wanted to start the ball rolling with what you guys have to say (I usually hang off every word lol)

    Congrats on your new pin, icanswim! DE Simpsons will always a remain a favorite machine of mine. While it may only be based on the very beginnings of the show, those were the best episodes IMO. Have fun!

    Agreed! The early seasons demonstrated what a perfect animated comedy looked like!

    Has anyone done "water slide" decalling instead of playfield touch ups? I'd love to have the playfield touched up professionally but as of right now I can't get it off the floor of my garage alone; Because it's laying flat i can't pivot it, and i'm not strong enough to dead lift it.

    As soon as I get it into the house I want to start sprucing it up. While i am as colorblind as a human can be, I saw these water slide decalling methods and am curious as it may be a good option for me. Anyone able to explain it? Any tutorials?

    I got it all set up in my basement! I've run into a small problem... The mechs are set to accept american quarters, but up in here in Canada eh So i removed the mech and have been just flicking the add credit switch. I have been digging through the manuals and cant find the freeplay instructions anywhere. Does anyone know how/where to switch it to free play?

    Here's the pin as it sits now!

    There's always something needing attention... I'm trying to decide if i should touch up the play field (my brother is an artist and I would try to bribe him lol) and the cabinet is ROUGH as you guys can see. One thing at a time.


    I'm confused as to how you do this. I've watched the YouTube videos and read the guides around here, but the steps and order are messing me up. Does anything need to be removed before touchup is started or has the protective layer worn away? Then is it clear coat first, followed by touch up and another layer of clear coat?

    Can someone give me the run down?


    ITS A MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB ALRIGHT. Chips left right and center, worn and weather damaged decal (myself and previous owner figure it was at a resort of some sort outdoors) Saw Vid's guides, where in the hell do you start?
