Item description

Selling my Space Shuttle. This was my first machine and has been by far the most reliable of the herd. This game totally spoiled my in terms of maintenance expectations. I've owned it for five years and it has literally never given me a single mechanical problem.

Like most Space Shuttles, the playfield was in need of some tlc after 35 years of action. The original clear was totally shot and there was paint loss in all the typical areas (lettering above top lanes, ball drop area, insert keylines, etc). Many of the inserts were sunken or raised. Since this was my gateway drug to the pinball hobby, it holds a sentimental sway for me. I could have left it alone or hardtopped it. But I didn't feel that it was so far gone as to sand it all off nor did I want to see it go knowing that it would deteriorate more and more quickly in its original state. So I went ahead and did a partial restoration job on the playfield. Nothing fancy or OCD like some of my past projects, just an overall facelift to make it present and play better. I leveled sunken inserts, reglued loose ones, touched up major wear areas and sealed the whole thing with 2PAC. Again this is not a perfect, defect free playfield but a very nice, above average original example which should play and wear MUCH better than an original that has not been touched up and cleared.

After touching up and clearing the playfield, I repopulated the topside with the following parts:

* New pop bumper skirts, bodies and rings
* Refurbished slings and flippers
* Reproduction ramp
* Reproduction shuttle toy
* New drop target stickers
* New star posts
* Cliffy's new enhanced ball return frames for smoother inlane travel
* Regrained and polished metal ball guides
* Original plastics with some scratches and dings (I believe repros are available from CPR if desired)
* Mostly Titan competition silicone rubbers
* Strategic combination of incandecent and led lighting

The cabinet is in very good condition. There are a few minor dings and some typical fade. Backglass is also original and in excellent condition.

Also includes original envelope with manual, score card inserts and registration card.

Willing to ship at buyer's expense. Buyer to make any shipping arrangements. I am willing to supervise shipping preparations. Game is at ground level. No stairs. Cash on the glass or only. If is used for payment, escrow fees to be split evenly between buyer and seller. $100 discount for local cash buyers picking up in person. Additional photos available upon request.
