Item description

Hi everyone,
Up for sale/trade is my fully restored Back to the Future.

You can see some of my restoration process (with a lot more pictures than this post) in the following thread:

Here's the rundown:

Games plays 100%
Completely sanded, painted, and applied decals from Retro Refurbs
Repainted backbox board
Powder coated rails, legs, hinges, lockdown bar, and all bolts
Comet LEDs used and color matched through PF and backbox
All new flasher bulbs installed
All switches cleaned (or replaced if broken)
Titan Pinball rubbers color matched with PF (I accidently bought some extra that I will throw in)
Shopped top of PF, including:
* Tumbled and cleaned all metal posts, etc
* Flame polished flux capacitor ramp
* Repaired / replaced any broken posts, screws, etc

Fully rebuilt flippers
Fully rebuilt pop bumpers
Replaced coil sleeves / cleaned assemblies below PF
Ultrasonic cleaned PF and cabinet wiring harnesses
Replaced Data East MPU board with one with no battery acid damage
* Rebuilt part of the lamp matrix (new PIA & 7406s) that were inoperable
* NVRAM installed

One tiny wrinkle on the decal on the very back right on cabinet
Some slight planking above the spinner on the PF
Small worn PF spot at the drop of the flux capacitor ramp
One very small chip on silk screened backglass (as seen in video below)
One plastic (pink future plastic) has a small chip in it

Here's a video of the gameplay (glass removed in order to see the PF better):

I'm happy to answer any questions you may have or provide specific pictures (within reason).

As for trading, I'm open for most anything 80's (Sys11, DE, B/W, Stern) or newer. +/- cash, 1:1, 2:1 trades are welcomed as well. My Wishlist is also up to date to give an idea on what I'm looking for.

Thanks for looking!
