I guess the original PF was previously shopped:

- New bumper caps?
- Nothing is missing, very clean overall
- Flippers looks recently rebuilt
- No corrosion, back is clean

My first impression with the CPR:

- Very nice
- I had it for several years now, you can see that the clear-coat has "sit".
- Looks like quite a few holes are missing

Wow! I looked at your old pics on "pinball owners", no doubt about that.
That is cool indeed, I'll take good care of it.

I never even plugged it, not sure if the previous owner did...

I finally kicked my butt so here is a little update.

Without going over the top, I'm doing a little more than expected.
Here are few general pictures of the stripping.

De-soldering every sockets was not really on the menu, but that is the only way to clean them properly.

Every socket will have a 10min ultrasonic bath + contacts re-tighten.
I will test all of them individually before assembly and replace the funky ones if necessary.

In the marathon of cleaning, cleaning, cleaning...

For small sub-assemblies like bumpers, slings, flipper coils; again the ultrasonic is fantastic IMO.
All sub-assemblies are completely dismantle one at a time, 10 min ultrasonic bath for all components (even screws and washers) then put back together after replacing the sleeve and cleaning the coil.
And yes, I am replacing the coil wrappers :FP:

Je me posais justement la question.... pas le goût de dessouder tous les coils et les switchs.
J'imagine qu'il faudrait que j'enlève tout ça?

What is the solution you use for the ultrasonic bath? Just water? A bit of dish soap? Vinegar?
Now playing in Sparky's Power Station: Way too much shit...

50-50% Mean green + water.
Après une bonne soirée d'utilisation ça devient noir et opaque, je laisse décanter la scrap jusqu'au prochain soir alors je récupère une bonne partie de solution propre.

Hottest water possible and a splash of Simple Green. Save your money on the 50-50 mix.

Tu laisse tout les coils avec le harness, ca va avoir le temps de sécher avant que tu remette ca en macrhe.
Si tu n'est pas certain, tu peut mettre une fan pour sécher le harness qques heures ou pour un extreme, dans le fourneau :FP:
