Started putting the prewar machines in a row. 1 is still out for restoration, so it will eventually be 5 of them, average age 86 years old.

I think you should put a Florida Water spritzer near the door.

That is awesome. I still keep wanting to add a pre-war game to my collection Rockala and Stoner games seemed to be the most fun from what little I have played.

"Finished "up a Pat Hand that I was tinkering on for the last couple weeks. Turned out really nice considering how long it had sat. I had never wiped that much dirt off a PF and it was extremely nice underneath. Still have a bit of an issue with it counting out some extra bonus before the outhole relay kicks in but it's getting better with some game time. (I think Sylvan has a thread on MAACA about this problem) I did some low purple light above the score reels as there is almost no paint there on the BG. The lady is still all there so I stuck about 4 white LEDs behind her and that takes away from some of the other missing paint.
Nice to bring back a game I played a ton as a kid and finding out I still enjoy the game play.

Went over to my client and good friend Phil to help him with his mods for his AC DC.
Looks great. The semi truck was my idea.

Brought Joker poker home for the 2nd time. :roll:
As soon as I had it working and shiny( with the help of a super tech maaca member ) a good friend wanted it. So we carried up 3 flights of stairs to sit beside his wms triple action.
A year later and back down the stairs it comes.
Wife's out at music trivia with a friend so I've got a few hours to come up with a decent story........
Any Ideas? :?
Noticing the coin door lights and back box lights are dim.....will post in other forum for help. Not sure about that.....

I am out of pinball room.
I am sore from lifting pinball.
I have less money because of pinball.
I am in trouble ( wifey)because of pinball. ( not really)
I will call R.A.B. next week for parts for pinball.
I love pinball.
Edit: figured out after much head scratching that the leds were defective. Thus giving me dim lights. Replaced with 44's . No more bargain cheap leds.

Was it those $0.50 ones from Comet? I bought a tonne of them for my games and within a year they all had to go. Huge mistake, although the rest of their products are pretty good. I really like their Optix Maximus for GI and I should have bought them the first time.

Finished clearcoating my BSD playfield with SprayMax 2K. Bought a pop-up spray tent which worked well https://www.amazon.ca/HomeRight-C900038 ... way&sr=8-2

I did have PPE on; spraying out side there is minimal exposure it doesn't take long to spray the playfield. I'll let it cure for a bit before sanding / polishing. It is not perfect but way better than what I started with, in reality when you are playing you will not notice the flaws that remain. I could have bought a new one from Mirco for $999 USD but this is good enough.

I am still considering what to do with the cabinet. Mirco does have "RadCals" that I think are $379USD I may use those but pondering other options like painting it myself.

Yeppers! Cheapos from comet.
I remember it was 29$ for 100 bulbs. ( leds)
Well guess what ? You get what you pay for.
I agree comet has for the most part great products and decent quality. Great service too.
Live and learn.and play pinball.....

I picked up a powered sub, then I hooked it up to my BBH and my IMDN. What a difference! The shotgun blasts on BBH are totally awesome with the sub, and Maiden rocks even harder now.
Next up...a shaker motor for IMDN!

Added a topper to road kings.
It's the back " translite " part of another rk play field.
Used a plug in case removal needed.
Wired and soldered into the g.i.
Looks ok I think. Opinions wanted?
( not sure if I'm a fan of toppers in general..... pins do look so sharp in a lineup without anything on their heads.......just sayin......
Hoping to come up with a piece to "shroud" back of topper ( black plastic ) to keep light in one direction.
Ideas?
