This month's contest on The Pinball Podcast is simple. Just describe the dirtiest machine you've either shopped out or seen on location. We're giving away a couple of cans of one of my favorite products: Crazy Clean.
You can post your stories here. I'm not going to make you visit our site or even download the episode. So...let's hear them!
I picked up a Taxi for a song, but it was so dirty I don't think anybody would have paid much more. The machine had been in a room where the home owners had put up sheetrock, mudded/taped, and painted. The thing is, they didn't even cover the machine, but to make it worse, they didn't even have glass on the game! White dust was all over in the machine, on top of a good previous 10 years of unshopped dirt and grime.
Every tiny but of the machine had to be disassembled and cleaned deeply. That dust had stuck to every screw, wire, assembly, and bit of wood. Luckily the machine cleaned up nicely, but it was unrecognizable when I got it.
