I`ve had Mario, Tee`d Off, Shaq Ataq, Big Hurt and have also played other folks Gottliebs but i can honestly say this one is my favourite. One big thing i really like is the fact it is a four flipper game and it offers up a big variety of shot selection unlike SO many modern pins that rely purely on flashy leds and rules alone.I put a lot of effort and work to get it as nice as it is now. I won`t bore you with all the details but the machine plays very well now and can be tried and tested at whatever suitable day /time suits. There are no solenoid/coil , switch faults. Display is nice and strong with no missing pixels and comes on immediately with no need to warm up. I stripped down the playfield and gave it a much needed clean and re-rubber. The four flippers have had all plungers, sleeves and end stops/ springs replaced with second hand parts which although not new now allow you to make the relevant shots with ease. I have fitted a mixture of coloured leds in the backbox to bring it to life. The playfield lights have been changed from a bunch of plain white leds that quite frankly washed out half the colours to something much more detailed with a mixture of leds and standard bulbs.
Four or five blown flasher bulbs have been replaced. The backglass has had new lift channel so i have fitted a new one which is essential as it`s a tight fit. The top chrome strip T-Moulding has been renewed. A couple of custom instruction cards have been fitted.The missing left drop target decal has been replaced since the photos have been taken and the high scores have been blown away! The cabinet and backbox are very good in my opinion and the playfield better than most Gottlieb pinballs i have seen. However pinball condition is very much subject to differences of opinion.
There is loads more work done that really , really will bore you silly but if i think of anything worth mentioning i will add to the ad so to speak! May consider a pinball as a trade up or down or swap.Bank transfer is fine also as is cheque. That`s what i get charged , i simply pass it on to you. The machine will be very well packed to protect it. I have sent many machines over the years with no problems.
