Sept. 20, 2006 - COMPLETE!

Here it is, freshly rolled in.

Sept. 22-24 2006

This machine was well-worn but a good player. Much of the cabinet had names carved into it but this does add character to the machine. The back glass has worn out mainly in the yellow areas. All of the leg bolt nut plates were rusted and required re-tapping. The playfield was touched up which made it look worse than if it had not been. I clean it and removed the touch-up paint easily. Although worn, the play is good. I'm not planning a re-paint or touch up of the back glass, playfield, or cabinet. I did, however, give the machine a thourough inside cleaning ( heavy dust ) and cleaned, lubed, adjusted all mechanicals. The spinner PCB had carbon shorts between the traces - you can see them spark from across the room.
