This game must have had 100 games total played on it in its' life. Seller said they had it in their family from when it was taken out of the box to when I bought it. Also picked up a No Good Gofers that's in the same condition as this one. I am literally bursting at the seams, so this one might be on the chopping block shortly. Literally cannot find a knick on the cabinet or play field to even mention. No insert wear/lifting anywhere - not even on the straight jacket insert, which seems to always have insert edging.

Like opening a time capsule.

#4868 5 days ago

The supply of Project Pins has seemingly dried up around here and around the U.S. This is one reason that I haven't been updating the Project Pin thread. But, what do they say? When it rains it pours? These four Project Pins have shown up at Pecos' Palatial Pinball Parlour.

I'm not a Chicago Coin fan, to say the least, but this one had the right price and I like the backbox art. Simple play but I might put some small legs on it so that kids can play it. I think kids will love this one - simple and a great theme. My challenge: make a Chicago Coin play like one of it's competitors.

day1_playfield_and_backglass (resized).jpg

Liberty Bell is one of the last Williams EMs ever built. The playfield looks suspiciously like Grand Prix. The backglass has bad peeling on the bottom, but the cabinet and playfield look good and it should clean up nicely. Add another backglass to the list of repros that I need! If Liberty Bell plays anything like Aztec, it will be a great player. I am really looking forward to playing it but those flipper have to go first.

Does anyone beside me think that the patriotic lady on the backglass looks like one of the walking dead??

day1_lower_playfield (resized).jpg

I had a shot at an Old Chicago and missed it. Who cares when you find one in this condition. The cabinet and apron are badly faded but not something I can't live with.

day1_lower_playfield (resized).jpg

day1_full_machine (resized).jpg

What can I say about this one? I played it when it was new and knew then that it was an instant classic. It was only one of two pins on my wishlist. It will go between Stellar Wars and Black Knight.

My attempts at fixing it has been fraught with problems. I bypassed the blanking signal to see if the displays would work. The displays came on and then something fried. Not good. Parts on the Master Display Board are expensive, if you can find them. I had checked the +5 VDC voltage and it tested good. After the mishap I tested again and got 8+ VDC! YIKES! DOUBLE YIKES!!

Meanwhile, I am in the process of bullet-proofing the boards per Vid's wonderful guide. The MPU board has the Scanbe sockets. I now own a Hakko desoldering tool so replacing those sockets has been easy. I never would do it with one of those el-cheapo solder suckers so having the Hakko is already paying dividends.

This is my friend Dave who helps with my pin pickups.

day1_playfield_immaculate_backglass_back (resized).jpg

Look at that backglass! It can't be original - can it? Can you say "Handle with extreme care?"

It is mirrored and I didn't think anyone doing repros could mirror backglasses.

An Old Chicago and a Firepower? I am in pinball heaven! And I am always happy to get EMs in this kind of condition. Both Blue Max, my first Chicago Coin restoration, and Liberty Bell should be fun to work on and are very welcome additions at the PPPP.

Quoted from Pecos:

Only thing barer than said conditions are most 70's Chicago Coin playfields, but it looks like you found one of the better ones.

Liberty Bell is a hell of a game. One of my favorites and honestly in my opinion one of the best multiplayer games there is, and especially kicks Gottlieb's multiplayer selection's ass that time around a little bit as much as a fan as I am. Fast as lightning. That is one you should really tune up, clean up, and enjoy before selling it off if you were planning on it.

#4870 5 days ago

(and yes, it has factory DC power to the pop bumpers and possibly the flippers as well! )

#4871 5 days ago

Ok got it a couple weeks ago now but forgot about this thread. Finally got it in its proper spot though.

Old Chicago -Paint the wood rails on the playfield - really makes a huge difference. Can be a brutal player, great for home use.

CPR do mirrored backglasses, not sure if they did Firepower though.

#4877 5 days ago

On April 17th 2014 I entered this hobby with my first machine...Blackout. Exactly 3 years (and 49 pins) later I ordered my first N.I.B machine from Automated Services. Ordered it Monday and it arrived Wednesday. Pretty impressed with the experience I had with them.

Picked 3 games (TZ, RFM, BH) up a couple weeks ago, finally got things into place. Feels good to grow the collection a bit.

The only pin I truly regret selling has rejoined the herd! This one is joining Metallica in the "bolted to the floor" club. Needs some work before it's as nice as my last one, but I'm looking forward to giving her the proper treatment.

I second that. Didn't really bring it home, but upgraded it last weekend. Does that count? Feels like a new game. Kind of like when you get your car detailed and it feels like it drives better afterwards. (Sorry these were thrown up a few places, I was just excited because such a vast improvement)

Picked up a Gottlieb Sure Shot while I visited my parents. Will post better pics once I get it back to our house. Backglass 9.5/10 playfield 8-9/10. Cabinet could def take a repaint but not totally necessary.

Yeah normally I don't wait too long to grab 'em, old habit from grabbing craigslist deals . I'm really happy with this one, the LED job looks great and it plays like a champ. It's been a good week, 2 wish list games in 7 days!
