Posted in another thread talking about what a HEP Wwind may cost, but figured worth sharing number in the owners thread.
Here is the parts tally for a nice base Wwind that was restored
Quoted from MikeS:
My guess is $7-8K based on all the parts needed and labor. I kept a spreadsheet of all the parts I needed to buy when I restored my Whirlwind. Over $2200 in parts alone! On a HEP restore you'd also have to add about $4-5K in labor plus the cost of a base game.

Playfield & plastic set $850.00
Mirrored backglass $240.00
Lift Ramp Assembly $50.00

I just sold my Wwind (pending pickup) and have a decent cash of parts available which I will be selling.
Brand new set of ramps with decals > never installed
Pretty nice translit with minor scuffs on back
Decent but a bit yellowed cloud topper
Various old plastics in decent condition
extra wireform on right side that drops balls on spinning disks
Message me if you are looking for any of this.
I will put up an official for sale thread for these parts once the game is officially picked up and gone.
I did not expect such a huge response of messages so quickly. I will start a thread with pics and prices in a few days/ after the game officially leaves. Sorry for jumping the gun on this one by posting. I really thought there would not be a ton of interest in these parts.
I sold my spare set of new ramps.
I have a reasonable condition topper (a bit yellowed and some cracks at screw tabs) and nearly complete set of use plastics. I also have a spare wireform that dumps balls onto the spinning discs also.
If anyone is going to MGC or VFW shows I can bring them to you. I will put up a thread with photos of the stuff later today.
