well she arrived,project surf champ,all in one piece,very well packed

thanks mark c

not sure how to load pics,have a mate coming this evening,who should be able to sort that out for me..

she's had a hard life,well played id say,plenty of ball swirl,

this will be my first attempt at anything like this..

all though i have 8 machines and have managed to get them up and running,
i still consider myself a noobie,

have got through with a bit of commom sense,alot of patience,and a handfull of luck i reckon:D


now,ive`d stripped the pf,dont think i want to take wood rails off though?

had a go at her with, ME and ispro alchol,she's come up a bit,

looking at the yellow on the pf,its like you can see the grain of the wood
she looks pretty thin...:o

ive run out of isopro,so ive stopped for now.

but overall all,im still pleased so far,

ok.hope to have some pics by tonight



great hobby this:cool:



will be searching for a credit unit for her,bracket and all..........

Awesome pin - yes would of been played to death.

What other pins do you own?

I have a complete Gottlieb credit unit (with brackets) that came out of a Surfer I stripped about 10 years ago.

If interested please send me a PM or email to pinballoz@yahoo.com
