I will take one also.
I'm already down for one, but I would take two if that's what was needed to make it happen.
Debating on paying to have my current playfield restored or waiting to see if this will e re happen. Any more interest out there?
I would still take two to make it happen if the interest is there. People should be aware it would be next year if it happens as Wade is pretty much booked up this year.
I thought 20 was the magic number. That's what it was for SkyJump. You might want to PM the original interested people in case they miss your post. I would take two if needed to get it done.
Quoted from koji:
Cool to see this is still alive. I just came in possession of this game. I have never ordered a repro PF yet. A few noob questions if anyone doesn't mind:
1- Does it make sense to try to ship to Canada, or better to ship to US if I live ~1 hour from border?
2- Do these repro playfields come clear coated?
3- Anything else? Basically, carefully take off PF mechanical components from the old board, and screw on to the new board, and drop in? [I know this is a big task], just wanted to make sure inlays are set and holes are pre-drilled etc?
To answer your first question, I'm sure there's not much difference shipping to Canada. CPR ships from Canada to the US all the time and it's reasonable. I believe in the US Wade charges $70 and it comes in a wooden crate that is the best packed playfield you will ever receive.
The playfields have a coating that is just like what came on an original EM playfield. So no, they don't look like a hi gloss CPR playfield, which is good, as it would look odd in an old wedgehead. Assuming your game is getting home played only, it should serve you well for years to come.
Everything is pre dimpled or drilled. You will need to drill holes yourself where it is dimpled. If you are mechanically inclined, the process isn't that difficult, though your first swap will be time consuming, probably 15-20 hours. If you search the forum, you will find some great threads that will explain how to do a swap. I'll leave you with three words of advice: take a million pictures from all angles, and then take a million more, buy a furniture upholstery staple removal tool, and order all new plastics (posts, rollover guides, pop bumper bodies etc.) unless yours are in incredible shape. Otherwise they will look like crap on a brand new playfield. Good luck!
