    Love to see what everyone is working on. I will be working on a Hardtop - Space shuttle following Vid's guide with a few tweaks.
    Planning to document my entire approach. Fingers crossed.

    Not really a project, but I just picked up an earthshaker that I’m cleaning up

    #4 8 months ago

    Hopefully finishing my F-14 restore!

    #5 8 months ago

    Thinking about putting a Kruzman clear coated LOTR play field in my LOTR.....Just can't decide if I really want tackle it

    #6 8 months ago

    I’m combining actual 3D printed human organs with a Pinbot. Still in the proof of concept stage.

    #7 8 months ago

    Single digits already. Winter is here where I live. Restoring comet, cyclone and pinbot! Might go back to my silverball if a lost insert turns up miraculously.

    #8 8 months ago

    Working to complete my Star Gazer build.

    #9 8 months ago

    Nothing.

    But I do have a sea wolf arcade I'm thinking of dragging to the house.

    #10 8 months ago

    I need to do the ground mods on a Genie I’ve been babysitting.

    #11 8 months ago

    Shopping out a Data East Hook to go back to a location.

    #12 8 months ago

    If only CPR would finally push out Gorgar I would be set for another "every screw" build. That would get me through most all winter. Oh well.

    #13 8 months ago

    I’ve got a project Seawitch i’ll start working on, after i do a pf swap on a friends BSD. Also going to help my son with his first shop job on a Space Shuttle.

    Jeez! I wish I were that ambitious!

    #15 8 months ago

    Hardtop and a new ramp for Taxi. Have it all sitting in the basement ready to go. Got it playing 100% this spring and planning to make it look real nice this winter. Probably LED that and another game or 2 too.

    #16 8 months ago

    Picking up a 1947 Bally Rocket flipperless from fattdirk right now. Cant wait to start working on it!

    #17 8 months ago

    AFM PF swap since the clearcoat failed. Let the new PF sit for an entire year this time. TAF will be next, I am guessing summer 2019.

    #18 8 months ago

    Barracora right now. Seawitch when I get Johns playfield. Then finish up my Tx Sector and a bunch of little things.

    Tore this down today to clean and install cliffys all around. However upon doing so I found this mushroomed magnet. Ordered and waiting hopefully I won't forget how to put it back together by then.

    i'm pretty impressed with that box they made to ship that.

    #28 8 months ago

    Only thing for me is a full teardown, shop and clean on the Diner I just picked up. It needs some inserts set and decals done. That'll be fun.

    Unless something falls into my lap this will be the first time in a couple years I don't have a line of projects waiting.

    #29 8 months ago

    My winter goal is to finish off the King Pin (Gottlieb 1973) restoration I have been variously working on and neglecting for work. No idea if the future holds enough free time but damn if I am not going to try to finish this so I can finally get back to the Playboy (Bally SS) I put on hold to do the king pin.

    #30 8 months ago

    What winter? I am glad is getting summer now... xmas on the beach!

    #31 8 months ago

    I am reorganizing my shop area. Hopefully this will be the last time this is needed. With that done I plan on spending Dec, Jan and Feb finishing my basement man cave. This will be the 3rd winter I have worked on that project. When done it should hold about 35 pins, a jukebox, a dartboard and have a bar with seating for 5. Full bath with a shower. Shop is on the other side of the basement.

    #32 8 months ago

    Hopefully getting heat in my shop so I can work comfortably!

    I want to see this!

    #34 8 months ago

    Nothing, everything works, sadly enough

    #35 8 months ago

    GetAway, Sorcerer, and maybe a couple Judges...

    #36 8 months ago

    So far, this has been a project like no other. And a darn good reason to beef up the metric tool inventory!!

    #37 8 months ago

    Ahh, January 1st, the day I reset my personal budget allowances to zero.

    My new BK2K will be getting a restoration - the closest to a HEP job that I can accomplish, after I've spent so much time reading his threads. Needs a PF swap, so that's gonna take a while.

    #38 8 months ago

    I am going to try my hand at a total restoration on a TS. I have a new playfield and will swap it out, along with new cabinet decals. I will also take the original playfield and try to refinish that as well.

    #39 8 months ago

    Shopping AG Soccer Ball right now. Then have to fix electrical issues before I ship it to a buyer.

    Then it's choice time. Have a usa football I am keeping but needs shopped. Supposed to be getting a MNF project, no boards/backglass/pf in pieces. Then there are the two unshopped radicals and their stupid ramp mold I am 85 percent done on.

    #40 8 months ago

    Nothing fancy like you HB / custom pinsters but it's something.
    After the LB I've got a Motordome waiting in the wings. I'll be glad to get back to a Bally.

    #43 8 months ago

    Waiting for the board to ship back for apb... then doing a mini restore to firepower.. should be done before the end of the year. Then I want to take a stab at something newer. I really want a jackbot.. a really beat up TAF would be awesome too (dreaming)

    On my new earthshaker, someone removed the mylar and must have lost insert art. So, they slapped down non laminated decals over the bumpy, half clear coated inserts. This was my first shot at this, but I sanded the inserts and applied new decals. I'm psyched with the outcome. Not perfect, but pretty nice compared to what I started with! I have mylar enroute, but my question is this: do I individually mylar each insert I repaired, or cut a sheet along the artwork border and cover multiple inserts in sections?
