Item description

I've listed the pinball machine as PARTIALLY Restored as I took a few deviations from OE like using starburst inserts, LEDs, etc, full details below:

If you did not follow the restore thread (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/polishing-up-a-silverball-mania),
here is the cliffs notes version:

Cab and back box art re-stenciled and clear coated matte finish
Backglass flaking painstakingly touched up, tripple thick coated and the touchup work clear coated
Playfield art reconstructed via Createx and water slide decals and clear coated multiple layers
Original inserts replaced with starburst style
Brand new light sockets throughout - every socket
All new solonoids
All playfield parts that could fit in tumbler have been tumbled, others polished
Most all switches replaced with new units
All mechs rebuilt with new springs, bushings etc Inc flipper mechs
Fresh Titan clear rubber throughout
Boards were gone through and caps replaced, reflowed, header plugs were repinned and currently the oe lamp board has Siegecraft daughter boards for LEDs, NVRAM has replaced the battery
Displays are LED style (OE are available as alternate)
New plastics
New pop and dead pop parts including covers
New coin door skin (No coin mechs included)
New PPS Apron
New Playfield glass

Original displays can be supplied in lieu of the LED versions, incandescent bulbs can be installed rather then current LEDs (to offer cost reduction)

Videos can be seen in my restoration thread or links can be sent to you if you would like.

The bad?
It was restored by an amateur
No coin mechs
Bb lock missing the cylinder
Starburst (non-original) inserts
Some minor woodwork cosmetics werent fully repaired, just touched up
One burned spot from previous ownership left untouched, only seen from under pf
I'm sure the community will find things in my images I forgot

I'm sure there are a few things I've left our but that should cover the blunt of it.

I can ship using your carrier of choice, you are responsible for all fees should you wish to ship. The unit will be palatalized and wrapped carefully before transit (no additional charge for palatalizing). I have pics available of how I prepare games for shipping should you wish to see them.

Please contact me for more details regarding anything you have read or seen, I have plenty of hi res images/videos I can share via Dropbox.

Thanks for your consideration!!
