I am finally starting to really dig into my first full on restoration on a dirty routed beater FT.
I figured some may enjoy following along in the adventure, so I am starting a thread to journal the process as I go.
It is worth mentioning that I work at the pace of a snail so you can expect this to take a while. It is also worth mentioning that this is the first major pinball project I will be undertaking so please be patient with my process. I am really bad at taking photos but promise to make a solid effort to do so while working on specific things.
Lets start off with some photos of where it all began.
I purchased the game for $1200 last summer and I knew full on that it was going to be a challenging project.
The good > cabinet is pretty decent and it spent the entirety of its routed life in a basement of a bar. It appears to have almost zero fade. The few scuffs and dings on the backbox will get touched up with acrylics when I am feeling artsy someday.
The bad > pretty much everything else! The PF is toast, the GI was burnt out, and she is a dirty girl.
