Built a Scared Stiff, a Dennis Nordstrom masterpiece, completely from parts this winter. (No donor pin used). NLA parts that were handmade include wire harnesses, ball guides / metal parts, plastic subway, light insert panel/plastics and back board. Fab’d dancing boogie men and lighted skull pile. Lamp boards were used from other pins, some modified, for any that were unavailable. Measured all guides, backbox mounting plate and have them in CAD if anyone needs them. Laser cut from 18ga stainless by HeMan40 (Dino) then I bent with a small brake and hand tools.
Painted and decaled the head/cab last summer. Local dude, Bill Webb built the sweet bare cab. More pics on my OneDrive https://tinyurl.com/y536wr62
Wouldn’t be possible without these most excellent parts suppliers- Pinball Life, Marco, Mirco, MantisA, PSPA, PPS/BAA, SF, PB Inc, PBits, Cliffy, MrP, Arakissun. Thank you IPDB for archiving parts lists, manuals, ROM images.

Hey Crazy
Around $5500.
I generally start looking for parts a year in advance of starting so I run into some really sweet deals. For example, the cab/head decals were $100, the power transformer was $80, and a complete wiring harness (from a different WPC-95 pin) was $50. Great deals are always found at the pinball shows. I restore many used parts like the coin door, pop mechs, sling mechs, flipper mechs and targets. If you want all new parts and you want them tomorrow, costs will be substantially higher.

How do you color your wire, or where do you get your colored wire?

Hey Coz
Don't keep track of time too much. Love every aspect of this hobby from looking for parts, to sanding/painting, making parts that aren't available, building wire harnesses, bending metal, everything.
Maybe 1000 hrs?

Nice work as always! Looks great!

#35 1 year ago

Boy I would like to get a glimpse at your notes on those wiring harnesses.... those harnesses must have been a nice chunk of 1000 hrs!

Quoted from ForceFlow:

How do you color your wire, or where do you get your colored wire?

Hey FF
BAA has a nice selection of color coded wire in 18 ga and 22 ga. 10 foot lengths.
I have also striped wire using a tool that my son made (and granddaughter painted) The tracer is functional but does not look original without the spiral. Rubber band keeps a little pressure on the pen. Solid color wire is available at McMaster.
Every so often, reasonably priced WPC and WPC-95 harnesses are for sale on Ebay or shows. Usually $50 or less.

You should have had the serial number sticker say WALLY Manufacturing Company instead of Midway!

#49 1 year ago

Nice. I often wondered what it would cost with used parts. Inspired

#50 1 year ago

Hey wally did you purchase my FB a few years ago and make it into the MM? I know the person that picked it up said they were going to do that, and then was starting to think it was you - your threads are fun to read regardless. Louisville
