BARB WIRE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverBought locally, traded Party Animal to get back Raven and cash. Added cash to Raven for trade for Barb Wire. Very fun multi-ball game
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.
NASCAR Stern (USA)In storage, workingNeverI will post pictures and description when I find out how much work I did on it.  
SURF 'N SAFARI Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!MaybePicked up 07/19/19, really dirty but will be great! Went through polishing everything, adding chrome & LED, fixing any damage/items not working. Started the tear down on 07/20/19 and completed 07/23/19. White playfield is yellow so I painted that and cleared. Completed going through the boards, burnishing connections, replaced a couple fuses and works like new. Basic game and goals but it is also a multi-ball and I love reaching that goal.

FUTURE SPA Bally (USA)Sold Picked up locally, installed new solenoid board, fixed flippers and installed new rubber kit.  
PARTY ANIMAL Bally (USA)Sold Picked up locally, first pin I haven't had to drive to get. Plays great, needs new ramp and few screws replaced and a little cleaning but overall a very fun machine to play.
RAVEN Gottlieb (USA)Sold Would consider trades as well. New MPU Board. Painted the cabinet and backbox. Completed playfield swap, 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.
RAWHIDE Stern (USA)Sold Picked up locally, fixed all switches, stripped and cleaned playfield, installed new rubbers, lights and ball.  
TIME WARP Williams (USA)Sold The 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. All new score and credit/ball(Rottendog) displays, all new 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. Difficult game that plays fast and has slingshot shots that are tough to stop.
