Since we´ve moved to a new flat I had a big problem:
The Pinball Cab, which was also used as a coffee table does not fit to the new furnishing. The color does not match to the rest of the living room and the height was not good either. So I decided with a heavy heart to disassemble the Cab. Unbelievable how quick you destroy months of work…
Based on the reasons why I disassembled the Cab it sounds quite strange and irrational, but there is a new big project in sight: A new Cab – this time with a real pinball casing.
I bought a real pinball machine at a Garage sale: A Williams “Comet”. Well, it does not work, because all the PCBs and the internals of the backbox are missing, but the price was really cheap.
The casing is OK. Also the Coindoor, the Solenoids, Lockbar and a few other things are in good shape. Sure it would be great to restore the pinball to a “real” pinball machine, but it would cost A LOT of money to do that!
I´ll post some photos soon, stay tuned!
