So I read through the section on upgrading and whatnot... I’m a bit lost...

My Bally Wizard! Needs some flipper help. One side is OK, the other is shot, and all sloppy, you can tell one side was rebuilt...

Am I reading correctly that I can modernize this game with a flipper that will be cheaper to repair in the future for roughly the same price as buying a full repair kit for the originals? The Williams WPC swap?

The links from the many year old page Vid1900 did aren’t quite active, i went to missing pages. I don’t mind spending money, I don’t want to spend it twice!

Thanks!

Thanks guys! Items getting ordered! Looks like the kit from Pinball Life has everything I need, except bats and rubbers. My bats don’t match, so I’ll add those in. Anything else?

Quoted from vid1900:

It's cheaper from PBR, especially shipping

Thanks! I did a small order from them today to establish an account, bigger one when I get this paid. Not used to doing business like it is 1985... I even used the telephone!
