BB..but there are no more deals on Sys 11 games! They are all gone and dried up and too expensive blah blah blah
EXCELLENT SCORE! Hope it cleans up nicely and plays well! Post some pics!
Thanks! Was very lucky though. The homeowner had just "opened" the sale and my MIL was walking by. My family has strict orders to alert me to any kind of pinball-related item for sale; she did good. According to seller (moving and trying to jettison stuff before they go to Florida), it was moved out of a dry cleaners (weird) that closed down and had been sitting in their home rec room since 1999 when they moved into their current home. The black rubbers are shot, almost all of the bulbs are out, thick coat of black dust on everything, batteries had a "use by 2003" date on them (but no leakage!), and it's pretty dinged up (but I don't care about cabinet condition as long as no water damage). Cool thing is all the original paperwork is still in the cabinet (mylar instructions, registration card, "operator's manual", instruction guide, setup guide explaining the proper pitch, all the bonus cards indicating a free game with x number of points, etc.) as well as a piece of carbon that might have been the receipt for the purchase of the game. Cleaning up well so far; have rubber and a some LED's on order from Marco, along with some Cliffy protectors. Here's some pictures I took before I started tearing the playfield down. Looks dirtier in person than it does in pictures:
