Item description

I got this game as a project and spent a lot of time (and money) removing hacks and restoring it to it's original glory. I'm an electrical engineer and made this game safe to run, and bulletproofed the boards so it lasts another 30 years.

The bad:
Visor plastic is cracked
Playfield wear at the eyes, can't really see it too much
Cabinet has some scratches and dings typical with it's age, but overall is pretty nice
The previous owner had screwed in some latches in the back, there are some screw holes I've patched but haven't painted - cosmetic and out of sight

The good:
Totally shopped about a year ago, stored in a friend's house lightly played
Everything the ball touches cleaned and waxed

Very clean boards - no hacks, zero battery damage
Replaced all capacitors (including sound board)
Rebuilt power supply (Great Plains kit)
Rebuilt HV power supply
Reflowed solder on all connectors
New bridge rectifiers, safety fuses installed
Displays are nice and bright, voltage reduced to 91V to greatly prolong their lifetime
Lithium button battery
New line cord/plug
New A/B select relay
New locks
New leg levelers
Sanded/repainted transformer

Translite is nice
Original topper is in excellent shape with no cracks or missing pieces
New translucent red/blue lit flipper buttons
New translucent silicone rubber all over
PinballLife Superbright LED's everywhere, a few color changers in the backbox, red/blue theme
Some new star posts
Some LED star posts in the visor
LED strips under the apron and in the shooter lane - easily removable if you don't like them
PinballLife backbox light baffle
Upgraded flippers to WPC style
New visor target bank guide, new target foam
New red/blue flasher domes
New coil sleeves all around
Chrome vinyl on the sides (poor man's mirror blades) - easily removable
Spiral ramp is perfect
Regrained metal ball guides
Plastics are near perfect! Only the blue one next the ramp is cracked/glued together
PETG discs protecting visor/slingshot plastics
Totally rebuilt pop bumpers
Mylar is in excellent shape - some slight lifting by the target grid but not bad at all

Open to trades for project games or anything in my wishlist.
Located in Chicago, 5 minutes off I-90 (Addison exit). Easy out from my garage.
