Gotta let you know though, this is probably the sweetest TZ you'll ever see . New everything!! Nuts , bolts , brackets, harness scrubbed clean. Boards, decals, legs, also has the black and white Sigma dmd from ColorDmd.
Decals on inside cabinet , chromed clock housing with rotten dog boards. LEDs on inserts and gi . Clear ramp, new coin door, GLM flipper boards so upper and lower flippers can be used seperately. Low profile mini pf switches, Mirco ceramic CC ( prototype style) installed with extra clearcoat. Lots of other mods and improvements I can't remember a ere done. Took me two years to restore this one.

Cabinet was sanded, primered and new back board with silkscreen was installed with factory style equipment braids and staples. Upgraded ground braid added throughout cab. Mike Chestnut did the lockbar, legs, habitrails, hardware, hinges, side rails, even the cabinet grilles. No expense was spared. Right now it has a stubborn switch 83 opto failure that just popped up tonight. But other than that it's unbelievable. Also has GLM 10 opto board under pf installed.
Need $7500 for this one, as I have $9k invested.

How can we get that safely to PA?

#15 6 years ago

SUV will do it. It will fit. Come on up. Don't like taking loss on money spent, but kids are losing interest being teenagers and I'm getting back into cars, so it deserves a better home. Besides, restoring is half the fun!

Let's see, someone could by an outstanding version of the (#1 to #2 pin of all time over the past ten years of Pinside) or a buyer might be considering a nib ---------- (and you can fill in the blank with whatever manufacturer you want) with promises of a great game, and this thing is still for sale?

Put a fork in it people, this machines needs a home for Christmas!

And I am still at top of line for LOTRLE, right?

You are. Second to the top though.

Gotta give dibs to first responded though. He's coming up Thursday. I'll let you guys know if lotr LE sells.

He's thinking of putting deposit on TZ too, so we will see.
