Now for the long winded version:

I bought this machine in 2001 and spent the next couple of years (off and on) doing a complete playfield restoration. Everything was stripped (top and bottom) and I performed some minor touchups around the outholes and shooter lane. The playfield was clearcoated by a local paint professional (and fellow pinhead) who had lots of experience with playfield clearcoating - Joe Pape. Wiring harness was cleaned - all coil sleeves replaced and flippers rebuilt. Damaged headers were replaced on the power board. Clear was left to cure for 2 months and then color sanded (1000, 1500, 2000 grit). Pop bumpers were completely rebuilt. All metal parts/screws were disassembled and tumbled clean. Strobe flasher was replaced. UFO Mini-Saucer kit and Pinbits protectors were installed. All was back up and running in 2003 and it played like new.

The machine didn’t get a lot of play after 2006 as I moved on to other hobbies. About a year ago I got back into the hobby and did a pretty serious “spruce up” of the machine. I installed the LEDs (w/ LED OCD board), silicone rings, rebuilt the flippers again. I also upgraded the backbox speakers and replaced the Cow ramp (it had cracked). Finally I installed a new lockdown bar and launch button as I had extras from another project I was working on.

Cabinet details:

While I am extremely anal about the quality of my playfield (and everything that is a part of actually playing the game), I am far less anal about the cabinet. This is an original cabinet that is in overall good condition. The sides and front do have some fade. The previous owner had done some touch up of the cabinet on both sides of the front right corner. I’ve included a closeup photo of this area.

NOTE: I used a very bright fluorescent light when taking these photos, as it really accentuates imperfections in the cabinet or playfield. It looks much better in person than these “under the spotlight” photos.

I am pricing this machine at $6200 FIRM. I would prefer an in person transaction, but I will entertain shipping the machine if it is paid for in advance. I would need you to arrange the shipping but I can assist with prepping the machine for shipment.

No trades will be considered. Cash only.

Machine is in a walk out basement and can be brought to my driveway without any steps.

Please contact me for additional information or pictures. I’d love to have you over to play the machine.
