FLIGHT 2000 Stern (USA)Set up, plays!MaybePainted cabinet, stripped paint off of coin door and left stainless/chrome rather than grey painted because I think it looks better, I will also do this to the legs. Installed all new plastics, drop targets, bumper skirts & caps, rubber, backglass, balls, lights and score & credit/match/ball LED displays. Playfield is a 6-7, cabinet is now a 9, back glass is a 10. This is a really great playing wide body machine with voice, multi-ball trap, and multi-ball play after completing sequencing. This is my first pin so price or trade would have to be right to sell.
RAVEN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeI was disappointed after I bought this and read the negative reviews on it. I am even happier I didn't read the reviews before the purchase. After completing the refurbishment of this machine it plays fantastic. The game is a lot of fun and can be programmed to be a highly difficult game to play. Even with moderate settings it is still very difficult and a lot of fun. Don't read reviews of machines from "experts" about game play, purchase what interests your taste and have fun. Do your own research and watch videos of game play to see if it is a game that interests you and not what appeals to the masses. Painted the cabinet without the "splatter" effect and replaced the playfield (used but much better condition), painted the legs, lockdown bar, siderails and coin door, installed all new lights LED's for lights above playfield #44's below, went with the alternate "Raven" background, new sticker package on whole machine, new pop bumper caps, fixed warped plastics, re-faced targets to all cross-hair and correct color layout from factory, new flippers, new rubber kit, stripped and polished all metal posts, ramp, ball rail, added chrome acorn nuts and stainless screws where exposed.
SURF 'N SAFARI Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeJust picked up 07/19/19, really dirty but will be great! I will be going through polishing everything, adding chrome & LED, fixing any damage/items not working. Thinking of painting the side rails & lockdown bar either yellow or orange & adding the same color T-molding to the backbox to make it a little different. Started the tear down on 07/20/19 and completed 07/23/19. White playfield is yellow so I painted that and will be clear coating next. Will post pictures once it is completed. The last two pictures are before and after wiping down with rubbing alcohol and nothing else.
TIME WARP Williams (USA)Set up, plays!MaybeThe cabinet and back box has a few scratches and dings and a small (1/2"x3/8")piece of wood missing on corner of backbox, minimal cabinet damage of a 37 year old machine, still very nice. Playfield has 1 wear spot by a pop bumper because the mylar ring failed. I cleaned up but did not repaint because I felt it was in good enough shape not to go through a whole paint job. Backglass has 1 flaked spot and 1 scratch that are very unnoticeable, overall very nice. Replaced rubber, shooter springs, a new ball and bulbs, stripped playfield and cleaned or polished all parts, cleaned and waxed playfield, all electronics gone through and game works great. Added LED to upper playfield and backbox per Todd Tuckey's rebuild and added new score and credit displays. Difficult game that plays fast and has slingshot shots that are tough to stop.
