Item description

I have a very nice, fully shopped Fish Tales Pinball Machine for sale. Every single mech on the game was removed and cleaned in an ultra sonic. Every screw was cleaned, all the ramps, plastics, rails, wire forms, etc... everything.  The playfield was completely stripped.  It plays like new.  The topper is there and works.  It does not have the reflective sticker on top of the dome because I bought a new dome for it and they were out of the reflective tape at the time.  It has a new sea shell decal on the dome.    It has new star posts, rubber, pinballs, lane guides, pop caps, flipper bats, all weak coils were replaced, many new coil sleeves. New Mylar on the boat ramp.  All switches were checked and cleaned.  Lamp boards were removed and cleaned.  It has basically all LED.  There may be a couple of incandescent 906 flashers on the bottom side of the playfield still. All the inserts were cleaned.   Inside of the backbox looks dirty but the boards are all clean and working. The batteries have been removed and relocated. The translite has a spot at these bottom where the back had worn off. It has been touched up and cannot he seen from the front.  The cabinet is solid. It has some fading but still has a lot of color. There is a little pinching around the back legs. I have a new set of feet and leg bolts for it too but haven’t put them on.  It has NOS sling plastics on it.  The boat ramp plastic has some chips as is usual and the long blue piece on the right side of the ramp was cracked and repaired. The rest of the plastics are in nice shape. There is a little insert wear as is normal on this machine. I have fish and tackle box decals to cover it but have not put them on since the wear is so minimal. All in all it has had a lot of work done to it.

I’d like to get $3500 out of it as I have seen similar ones sell for more that haven’t been shopped to such an extent.
