Found a topper for my Central Park...
Quoted from Murphdom:
That’s awesome. I recently picked up a project Central Park. It’s going to be my first ground up restoration. I just got a new coin door and pinball pimp stencils in yesterday. Fingers crossed everything goes well.
Welcome to the club, my CP was sitting for 20 years in an apartment complex common game room that had been shut off by the landlord due to the neighborhood going downhill. It looks almost new inside, all the tags and operator reminders are nearly pristine, the only thing that is failing right now is the glue that held them to the cabinet walls. If you need any pictures let me know... I have all factory lacing intact, all connectors, adjustments, jumpers...
Quoted from OTTOgd:
Does Charley clap his cymbals every time you get a Special? I hope so!
I am working on a simple 8 bit micro controller that takes power from gi, and senses voltage on the knocker coil and fires his driver for power on, and a solenoid to engage the squawk cam and then keep his driver energized to run for enough time to finish his bug eyed teeth baring show and clap his cymbals a few times. Or the other though was to make him clap once with each 100 bell ring so he syncs with the backglass, and energize his bug eyes for specials. Either way I need two channels of drivers, a solenoid to make him clap and another to drive the squawk cam. Right now the wife thinks he’s possesed and creepy and wont let me put batteries in him, because she is convinced he will slit our throats in our sleep like Chucky.

That pinny looks very, very lonely!
That shadow on the wall to the right is my MBrLE, and next to that is my South Park... so three downstairs and three upstairs, which are Pinbot, his Bride, and Family Guy. Hoping for a TAFrLE, TOMrLE, TotanRLE, a Subway, a Centaur II (I have a lock on one in decent playable shape), Stellar Wars (just because I know where one is that needs restored but has a good playfield, cabinet and bg). Now if I could just get my brother to sell me his Black Knight and Bally Air Aces... but he needs to keep a few pins to play. He bought his BK in 1992 for $195 bucks and he got a perfect pulled playfield for 30 bucks, he got that from Bob Burke at the ‘92 Expo. He has everything to make it look brand new for less than $225
I have a big huge soft spot for Subway... played that machine every week when I was in junior bowling league back in around ‘72... we would stack dimes on the rail and play it the entire time we were supposed to be bowling, swaping out live with my brother to go take our frames... would love to find it or Cross Town in as good a shape as I found my Central Park.
