What did I do today?

My dream of a larger basement have come true!

Recently purchased the house next door so I can look after my mother, huge basement that she will never use.

Soon, for the first time ever, I will have my entire collection in one space with more room to host events when the pandemic is over.

Plans to remodel this space underway

8 down, 10 more pins to move in!

Life is good

WOW CRAIG! amazing

But aren't you going to remodel BEFORE you move the games in? or just try and cover them up and move around them while you work?

I dissassembled 32 machines in the basement. Big plans to clean up and reduce inventory soon. And it makes it easier to work on them. I can take a machine, fix it, and put it back. Less floor real-estate.

I will also look into selling a few projects. I do have the complete Tropic Isle pinball that was repainted into a custom zombie theme by Chris Silver years ago. I bought it from his son and never got to it. It may go sooner than later.

Here are some of the threads:

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16045&p=136840&hilit=zombie#p136840

Dunno... I may do a post with a best offer type of deal. It is buried in storage right now. I would have to dig it out. But I rather dig it out if sold. I don't really care what I get for it.

Got Algar cleaned up....now to set up Scorpion beside it and go at it tomorrow.
When I've done all I can do it'll be time for smart people to look at the boards and connectors.

Added one of Dino's Pin2DMD's in my IJ last weekend. This was the same IJ I was talking about somewhere in the first few pages of this thread!

Great price and looks pretty good. I also have a WMS DMD for sale in case anyone is interested.... ;)

More disassembly. Games put in storage so I can renovate the basement a bit.

I am about to pull out a few games like Space Mission. It will go up for sale. I need to make space. It is in decent condition but time to thin the herd more.
