The long wait pays off...
Was super pumped to pick up a Firepower II today but had to leave it with the owner who says paid $900 for it. Anyone in Illinois desperate and have $500 here it is
Yeah it will need a new battery holder as this one had a minor leak, dont see anything on the mpu though. The tab actually broke off when I removed the old batteries.
More pics since I got it home.
Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:
I would not mind seeing a few close up photos of the playfield.
That will really tell me how good this machine is overall.
Any thoughts? I don't see a single pf issue minus some slightly dirty posts and a little leftover wax. Look at how clean it was under the lockdown bar. The bar itself took a little force to remove due as did the pf glass, almost like it was snug from barely ever being removed.
Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:
One of the best examples of a BK2K I have seen in well past 20 years.
Is there even a mylar coating on this playfield?
It does not look to be the case.
If there is not, feel fortunate, most were destroyed due to that decision.
I would really like you to take one more photo, a hi res shot of the entire playfield focused on the lightning wheel.
I would like this have this for reference.
Also, you could do a favor for the community.
Upload your photos to the archives.
Actually it does have mylar. It's really hard to notice though with how new/shiny it looks. I will get more highres photos and upload to the archive. I didn't want to keep spamming this thread with them
Was anyone on here the one carrying a pin on 88/290 in Chicago saturday night wrapped up on a trailer while it was raining? Couldn't pick out what is was but was pretty excited/drunk/getting driven back home by a chick who was not the best driver in the rain/night so didn't want her to speed up too much to see what it was. Anyhow, drunk me was WAY more pumped than I should have been about it, but neat nonetheless.
By this time tomorrow, I should have a sweeeet pin that's really high up on my want list. Oh the suspense!
Was told this one was in good shape and works 100%. Gonna need tons of work but up for the task. Cant complain at $1k either! GRAIL PIN
Not pinball, but this should give people who aren't into flippin something to do. Any idea what the average ballpark these are worth? Picked this up for $200, might grab another local one as well.
3 hour round trip at 6 am this morning. Home before work started! Had to take it easy last night to make this happen. Boards powered up when twsted, nothing else. Got it home, reseated everything, new batts, checked fuses and it works. Trough issue but it plays.
Quoted from rcbrown316:
nice. i'm sure you were completely focused on work all day then right?
100% focused, just on the wrong job. When noon came around I unloaded and got to work/played, spent a little too much time on it. And yeah... been researching all day, aquiring parts needed etc. Haha
