Well, I don't have any pins to restore any more, but I am working on a waterslide plastics restoration project for murphdom for his Beat-The-Clock. Does that count to get into this club? lol. Here's a collage of how they look. They're very reduced in size on here of course. There's one plastic missing from the set as I'm still working on that one...

They look great so far Mal. If anyone has any advice on how to make these it would be greatly appreciated. I know there is at least one thread on how to make them. The ones I have now aren’t terrible but there’s always room for improvement.

I’m intrigued because I’ve never played an EM with a sound card before and the art is kind of neat. It’s a fixed 3 ball game. Find any hacks to make it 5?

Chicago Coin Jet Pilot. The Playfield has seen better days.

You have to desolder the tab and move it to different location to change from 3 ball to 5 ball.
Doable but a hassle.
Might as well at the same time,
solder into place a couple of jones plugs in appropriate places.

I need to work on all my EMs,
as they all have issues of some sort or another.
I do not have the skill or patience to do a total restore.
I need to get out of my rut and work on a game, probably would be good therapy.
Games that need to come out of storage and be set up and obviously worked on
are GTB Dimension, BLY SkyRocket, InterFlip Dragon and a MataHari EM.

Ya love the cab art. Haven’t found anything to make it a five ball game looks pretty stock. Sound card works and sounds great. If only I knew was I was doing it be working.

Williams Space Mission. My biggest problem is space .. I’ve got parts and pieces spread out over the gameroom, dining room, and garage. These things take up so much space it makes me want to move somewhere with a dedicated workshop ..
