We’re a few weeks away from being shut in for winter and I’m looking for a few new games before cabin fever hits… I have a very nice Fish Tales for trade.
The Good:
* Everything works 100%
* Very little (if any) cabinet fade.
* All comet LEDs installed (nothing bananas - 2SMD sunlight with a few green/teal accents for GI).
* Playfield has been fully stripped down to wood and cleaned/polished.
* Installed all new rubbers.
* All boards are clean. No corrosion or hacks.
* New reel optos..
* NVRAM installed
* New Rottendog DMD driver.
* Rails, lock bar, and legs have all been powder coated.
* Stringer fish and tackle box inserts have been leveled, sanded, polished, and insert decals applied. Decals lays flatter than piss on a pancake. There's a few areas of nicely done touchup around the school fish and lock ball inserts as well.
* Added a playfield protector that keeps the decals and detail work from getting damaged or scuffed. Shots are slick and FAST! The playfield protector remains firmly in place, is not permanent, and can be cleaned/polished/waxed.
* Spankin new balls, smooth as eggs!
The “Take it For What it is”:
* The game currently has new standard flippers installed (yeah, I cheated - this thing was a friggin drain monster) but I can put back the lightning flippers if requested.
* There’s some scuffs and dents on the cabinet and back box.
* There’s a few cracks on the topper dome.
* The "Extra Ball" insert decal is chipped.
The Bad:
* We're out of coffee...

This game is a LOT of fun (and funny) but I’m a sys11 snob so I’d love to do a 2-for-1 trade. Quite the long shot but these are pretty much the only titles I’m looking for at the moment:

* Space Station
* Earthshaker
* Taxi
I’d add some cash money and a good old fashioned firm American hand shake and a safe-distance manly hug for a Metallica Pro (not sys11 but, hey). I can drive/meet halfway, maybe 4-5 hours from Buffalo or maybe something can be arranged with shipping? I’ll work with ya. :)
