Only reason I wanna work for Matt is cause he likes beer.

Do you have Bride of Pinbot already on the map? I was going to try and make my own for my BOP. If you don't have one and i some how am able to get it worked out to look nice, I'll send you the file if you'd like. I'm no artist but I have a need so was planning on trying at least since nothing is out there.

Send me a PM and we can discuss BOP.

The Banzai Run apron looks just like HS but it has the game # in the
artwork just to the bottom right of the round Williams "W".
31 -1008 -566 - RD
Its less generic than most System 11 Pin aprons that I have come across.

Any chance of getting them made if I supply photos of the specifics?

TIA

Matt,
If i could supply solidworks drawings of the Aprons and vector art for the screening, Would you consider doing Pharaoh, BK and Solar Fire?

Bob, if you supply the artwork and it meets Williams/Bally standards we will credit you with the artwork. PM me and we can work out further details of reimbursement.

Exciting news, we found out that our next game shares tooling with High Speed so our costs will be going down for this run. As a way to extend our good news we have decided to lower the costs of the apron and shooter set for High Speed to $99.95 plus the regular shipping rates. All customers who ordered at the regular price will be receiving a refund of the difference Monday when we ship out.

If you would like to order please send $99.95 + Shipping ($15 US, $20 Canada, $50 Europe, $60 Australia). Each extra set will only be $5 more in shipping to matt.merfeld@gmail.com. Please be sure to include your Pinside username in addition to you "Real" name and address where you would like the apron and shooter gauge shipped.

If you would like to send a check, please send me a message letting me know so I can set aside an apron before they sell out. Checks and money orders can be sent to:
Merf's Pins
2612 17th Ave NW
Rochester, MN 55901

Bay Area Amusements will also be stocking a few apron/gauge sets in case you miss out on these before they sell out.

A little delayed ?

Really looks sweet with those new CPR playfields Matt! The personal delivery was a nice touch! This is certainly a lot easier than repainting\decaling an old one.

Nothing but the best for you

Busy weekend printing labels. Let me know if you need an apron and shooter gauge, they are going quick!!

any chance you sell just the shooter guage? Mines all twisted up.....

#71 6 years ago
Quoted from lurch:

Maybe at a later date. We made just enough shooter gauges to go with the aprons to be sold as sets.

#72 6 years ago

it was worth a try....

#73 6 years ago
Quoted from lurch:

Seeing that Matt has sold several of these sets maybe someone that bought one has a shooter gauge that is in great condition or better condition then what you have that will sale it to you! Worth a shot to put a post up looking for someone to sale you what they have/had!

I got mine and it's beautiful. I now have my repro pf, plastics and the clear custom ramp from Mark Davis(Freeplay40). Now all I need is more time to start the resto!

#76 6 years ago

Got mine yesterday, minty fresh.

#77 5 years ago

Looking very good! Planning a HS2 also?

Quoted from sake:

That's always something for us to look at later down the line.

BTW, we still have some HS aprons in stock for anyone that needs them.

Just got the last batch of High Speed aprons done. Better get them now before they are sold out.

#81 5 years ago

Matt, curiosity question for ya....is your plans to continue to do one title at a time and see how the interest continues or will you be releasing more titles at the same time going forward?

#82 5 years ago

Very tempting... Mine has black overspray on it for some reason. I will see if it comes off before I order one. These look outstanding by the way!!!

The plan for right now is to release another game shortly. For the next run I'm considering doing a paid pre-order with a set number necessary to start production, kind of like a kickstarted. If enough aren't sold everyone will get their money back.

What game?

#85 5 years ago

Hopefully these sell well enough that it's worth your effort to make them! It's certainly, IMO, something people look for in restoring games. With Pinball Rescue ceasing production on their decals it now has left a hole in the apron restoration field.

When you first announced HS as your choice a part of me was questioning as to why you would pick a machine that was a highly produced game thus there would be more aprons out there for people to pick from for those restoring a game. I would think games like Fathom, Medusa (yes still pushing for a Medusa) and other popular low production games would have more of a demand as there would be less of an opportunity out there to get one in excellent condition! I guess it could go with way in the sense that higher produced games gives you a larger audience.

All I'm going to say is, Matt picked up a TOTAN apron from me last week.

That's all I'm going to say.

#87 5 years ago

I'd really like to get a new apron for my Roadshow.

#88 5 years ago

Well, let's hope TOTAN sells well enough to warrant expanding into another title.

Like TAF! I'm ready with "the goods", as you know Matt....

TAF and Roadshow sure would be nice.

Quoted from mollyspub:

CAD files, CNC tooling, and artwork package are complete. Right now the we are trying to decide how many to make and if we are going to do a pre-order so we don't end with extra inventory.
