    Who these days is doing full PF restorations? Have a couple that are good candidates. These would be on older games (60's and 70's etc) so no hardtop/CPR etc available

    Many Thanks!

    Quoted from ViriiGuy:

    chrishibler comes to mind.

    I didn't know that Chris did playfields also.
    He recently fixed the MPU board on my Whitewater, and did an excellent job.

    I don’t believe he is a playfield restorer. Board repair yes.

    CaptainNeo restored my Astro playfield. Great job. Good communication throughout the process.

    Keith Holbrook does excellent work and his prices are very reasonable

    Thanks guys.
    I am not a PF restorer. I’ve done my share of swaps but touch up and clear is not in my skill set. I wish I had that skill but I’m focused on boards and local service calls to break it up a bit.

    Good news is that I just retired from my day job so I can reduce turnaround times quite a bit now. I’m looking forward to building some additional test equipment too.

    No biggie. That is one of my strengths too, mixing up people.

    I second this, he did a frontier playfield for me and it was beautiful

    Nick Raschilla in Green Lane PA... he does it all, and has a bevy of awesome playfields that he's done in his arsenal... from the 50s to the 70s. I've seen his work up close, and I can tell ya straight away that his touch up and clear work is awesome. Adept at air-brush, air-gun, manual touch-ups and clear-coating that make sense. p

    I want to send my TAF PF off to someone before long. It is in fairly good shape, but could use some love.
