Doesn't have the original receipt, but I didn't see any shooter lane wear so I am going with undocumented HUO. Has original rubber and incandescent bulbs, I don't even think the original owner knew you could open these up. Best part is no pooling or chipping at the playfield posts!

Quoted from LesManley:

Scored a 90's Jurassic Park pin today. Probably not what you were thinking, but the price was right...$5...and the kids like it.

Looks like a Pinball gateway drug. Good job.

Top 10 by next week.

Not even dimpling on the PF? I heard even the 90's games had horrible dimpling and unfinished code when released.

My daughter would love that. I have a home brew I made her but obviously not playable Lol.

Brought home a coffee table today. Headless, harnessless, coiless with a jacked up cabinet and a messy playfield. What was I thinking? Maybe it should just stay as a coffee table.

Repro Nine Ball playfields are now available since your lower section is totally blown out. Building a head isn't too hard on those classic Sterns and the boards are very easy to come by. Join the 9-ball club and we will all be glad to help you bring her back! A Nine Ball is a great pickup!

Starting with more than I am, all I have is a clapped out playfield and backglass.

But nonetheless I'm building a seawitch with no doner pin sacrificed.

PF OK? Any clearcoat pooling/chipping?

Looks like it's in good shape, any plans to send it to HEP for a restoration?

My favorite Ritchie pin (albeit mine's a Pro). Load up the code w/the movie callouts and hook it up to a sub!

Brought this one home. Not something I was really looking for but the price was good. Gonna get it the topper and do some TLC on it and see if it’s a keeper or something I’ll pass on. It seems pretty interesting initially though! Cabinet colors and playfield look pretty good too!

Or you can buy a roll of Kobalt Tool box liner from Lowes for $20. Same thing, and one roll does two games with two cuts. Unless you really feel the need to pay $40 more per mat just to have the Stern logo.

I don't get the idea of this.... To keep dust off, or are your games in the sun and you're worried about playfield fade?

For me it’s 100% to keep dust off. Got sick of wiping the glass down.
I used the non slip drawer liner for a bit but found it would leave a mark on the glass when left on for a reasonable amount of time.
I’ve ended up just using towels with magnets that stick to the headbox hinges.

For my licensed games (Star Wars - Stern & DE) I use a themed beach towel. For my Funhouse, just a towel with a close color to the cab.

If I see any dust, I just give a quick micro fiber towel wipe. Seems like more work to cover them and I can't see the coolness. Shrug.

I prefer them covered as well, old soft towel works great.

I use a California car duster. Takes about a minute to do a row of 10 games.

Sun. I’m worried about them turning to ash. They are vampire games...duh.

It is for dust, but I keep those three covered because I tend to throw boxes and other things on them. Keeps me from scratching the glass.

Somebody had to buy them new, or there wont be any used ones in the future!

True. Glad that people bought some of mine many decades ago.

Rarely do I get a machine that I don't have to removes years of brown gunk from the cabinet. Kinda fun doing it!
