Bally Mata Hari restoration

Postby Sparky » Wed Sep 30, 2015 3:35 pm

In 1978... she was born...

In 1986, she was bought by a friend of mine's uncle for his kids to play with...

In 1989... she broke down.

26 YEARS... she sat in the basement... in pieces... broken in body and mind... but not in SPIRIT.

2015... I dug her out of her moldy tomb (for peanuts...)... and she will live again!

(TEASER VIDEO! ;) )



Overall condition:

BACKGLASS: 9.5 on 10! Also has the writing on the knife!!
PLAYFIELD: 7 on 10. Some dry-wear up top, but in solid color areas for the most part! VERY restorable.
MECHANICALS: NO RUST, NOTHING FRIED!
BOARDS: typical minor MPU corrosion. Fixable. Power supply looks tired. Just some refrwshing overall.
DISPLAYS: NO BURN!!
CABINET: SUPER solid!! Overall very nice!! Coindoor very nice!!

She will clean up very nicely!!!
Now playing in Sparky's Power Station: Way too much shit...

That quick shot of the back of the backglass looked pretty good. Looking forward to seeing this one progress!
