I picked up two Bally Paragon project machines in 2001-2002. Both had typical beat PF's and BG flaking but they were cheap enough and within a couple hours drive. A few years later I found a nice PF needing minimal touch-ups but the wiring harness connectors were all cut off. Had it touched up and clear coated. Other projects always came 1st since this needed a BG. Last year I found a NOS BG so I started on it. Cabinet repaint, and a lot of other work including replacing the entire PF wiring harness. 18 years later I played my 1st game tonight although I need to fix a couple a light sockets.
Longest time you ever had a project game before getting it fixed?
