Item description

Something for all the die hard Joe Pesci fans!!

Okay, so I've got a DMD game here for $650 (interesting trades for classic Sterns accepted too). It was picked from an old operator's basement. It sat down there for some time. This is a PROJECT, but it should clean up nicely. Let's get down to it:

The Good:
-The game WORKS! Not well, but it does fire up.
-All switches work in test mode.
-All solenoids work (except any that are wired to the 8A SB fuse, which keeps blowing)
-Speakers work great and sound is full.
-Comes with many brand new parts! (complete flipper rebuild, a drop target (1 is broken), new correctly rated fuses, etc...)
-DMD works and has practically zero burn-in (though top row and bottom horizontal rows are currently not working)
-Playfield is pretty nice. Probably a 6.5/10. Specifically: slight wear at the LW1 kickout hole, the left outlane switch, and on a few inserts of the uzi graphic. Inserts are all still relatively flat. Will clean up nice.
-Cabinet is structurally sound. It's not going to be a prize-winner or anything, but it works. Specifically: key scratched on 1 side; other side is decent but has slight delamination on the bottom (could be fixed with wood putty and matched paint). Head is decent but has scratches. Front is nice and will clean up well. Inside of cab has been vacuumed but could still use a good scrub.
-All plastics seem to be present but a few are chipped (nothing major, but not perfect either)
-It's a DMD for $650!
-Boards are all present. I don't see any hacks (though not guaranteeing anything), and they seem to work great. CLEAN.
-Could be converted to a Richie Rich...or an Aaron Spelling...or a Michael Jordan

The Bad:
-Flippers and pop bumpers will need a complete rebuild (flipper rebuild included in price though)
-Translite is missing. Will need a replacement.
-DMD/Speaker panel plastic is cracked and will most likely need to be replaced.
-The gun could use a rebuild. It isn't firing right now, and at least needs a new spring inside.
-Missing topper but this can be had for $30 online.

Again, this is a project pin. I haven't messed with it much and you are buying it as is. If you're looking for your next winter project though, this is it! PM me if interested as I don't always check the forums. Located in the Northeast suburbs of Indianapolis.

If you really want to ship this, I am willing to via STI but it's got to be setup on your end. Otherwise, it's in my heated garage and I'll even help you load it up for free. ;)
