I'd thought I show you how I do one of my machines as I haven't seen many bash jobs done before.
So here is one Monster past it's use by date ready for a rebore. A very good project machine as all the bits were in place.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/02.jpg
As you can see not very healthy but we'll fix that.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/03.jpg
Started pulling the major pieces off. Notice the surface rust on the glass rails.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/04.jpg
Typical damage here.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/05.jpg
Same... Notice the corner separation which is also a common fault which will also be corrected latter. Lock down bar bolt holes will be removed as well.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/06.jpg
Aussie delivery. Not bad condition here considering.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/07.jpg
The rooted playfield. This has suffered many years of butchering and neglect so we'll fix that to. Drac track, Main scoop hole, ball launch track, Black lagoon area, Bumpers... dam... every thing is stuffed.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/08.jpg
Lets start here... Strip it all off.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/09.jpg
All decals removed with the heat gun at around 600.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/10.jpg
All the electronics seem fine. Everything will be removed cleaned, tested and repaired if necessary. The box will be striped, filled and sanded fresh for the painting stage.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/11.jpg
Chips, dings and scratches... When I'm finished it will be brand new.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/12.jpg
All striped ready for art restoration. Major damage was the Drac track, wood around the hole, ejector hole in the lagoon and the black lane to the rear. The rest was chips, scratches, mylar removal damage and where the ball drops from the wire rails.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/13.jpg
Guts...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/14.jpg
Re sanded and filled... The usual process here.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/15.jpg
Masked up the clean underside.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/16.jpg
After semi gloss black applied inside and out.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/17.jpg
I've seen machines with the bare wood internals look but on this occasion I prefer the internals to be painted fully. Although not factory in my opinion it just looks cleaner.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/18.jpg
Head shell all done pending graphs.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/19.jpg
Applied dry...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/20.jpg
Trimmed and black masked.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/21.jpg
I don't recommend any one to do it this way, but I applied these dry. I've done quite a few with out any problems but any one who hasn't should try the wet method first, in my opinion only.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/225.jpg
Black masked this area by masking up both sides and brushing the black acrylic on. Leaves a nice sharp black line between the wood and the art. I'm just a fussy prick...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/22.jpg
Yeah, looks clean and straight.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/23.jpg
Bolt heads painted, head hinges powder coated and new nylon feet banged on the head and cab. Sourced these from Greg @ RTBB amongst other bits.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/24.jpg
New ground cables, re-plated hardware etc... assembled. The PCB mounting plate and head vent grill was cleaned with Scotch Bright and 2 packed clear. Now where starting to get somewhere...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/25.jpg
Removed the raised T-nuts and other mounting hardware in preparation for sanding.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/26.jpg
All stripped and ready to go.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/27.jpg
After sanding with 120 grit.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/28.jpg
The field after being cleaned, rubbed back with 1500 grit, Air brushing, Main eject hole repaired, Creature hole repaired, ball launch track painted and repaired... all the usual procedures... Notice my paint mixing pellet on the lower left corner. I like to mix an match the colours here and then touch up. I also airbrushed the creature swamp a deeper UV green as the stock fluro color usually fades. Matches beautifully with the new Lexen repo swamp cover. The unpainted green area is covered so I didn't bother there. All large areas are done with the air brush for a pro job. Ready for clearing now.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/29.jpg
One coat clear, two days to dry then rubbed back with 1500 grit... x 8 times...

After rub back with 1500.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/31.jpg
You can see how thick the combined coats are here after the rub back.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/32.jpg
Last rub back... #8

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/325.jpg
A quick cut and polish.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/33.jpg
T-nuts and hardware etc... added.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/34.jpg
Reassembly begins with reconditioned components.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/35.jpg
Cleaned and new bulbs installed.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/36.jpg
On the home straight...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/37.jpg
Cleaned up swamp rat.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/38.jpg
Lets start upstairs now...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/40.jpg
Ramp flaps, Franky target flap and ball launch flap was replaced with Stainless versions.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/41.jpg
Stainless rubbed back with scotch bright until grain was even and flat.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/42.jpg
All targets, plastics and rubbers replaced.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/43.jpg
All pop bumpers replaced. S/S hole protector and plastics protection added.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/44.jpg
Yep, it's yellow... I like it. My 2 cents worth... Ha Ha...

Finny
30th December 2008, 06:07 AM
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/45.jpg
All micros replaced.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/46.jpg
Plastics protector just poking out where its important.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/47.jpg
Weldment above has seen better days. Below is the tough third party Stainless steel version. Just hop it doesn't fall to bits like the old one did! A massive improvement though.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/48.jpg
Instead of the short clear posts originally used on the lane guides, I cut down and used stock yellow ones.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/49.jpg
Just below the ramp, I did the same here as well.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/50.jpg
Scotch bright used on the guides here too.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/51.jpg
The third party swamp cover. The area where the old green is concealed by plastic and posts.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/52.jpg
This area cops a lot of shit thats why I reckon the stainless ejector and hole guard are essential bits to be added.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/53.jpg
All fresh and clean...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/54.jpg
The wire was re-chromed and you may notice the clear plastic above the orange pop bumper is modded as well. Instead of those double ended nylon mounting devices which are used to separate two or more bits of plastic were replaced through out the machine with a playfield pop bumper mounting screw turned upside down with a lock nut and standard purple post and added the rubber to. Cosmetic only. Looks pro though for those who give two rats.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/55.jpg
The eject hole was airbrushed a wood colour. No ply layers here. The black ring was added too.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/56.jpg
I hand polished the adjustable posts which look nice and clean now.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/57.jpg
New flippers and bumper switches added. Phantom flip optos cleaned up and aligned.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/58.jpg
New arm and posts.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/59.jpg

Pool que lane.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/61.jpg
Looking good. Notice the yellow post mod under red flasher and in front of left character under plastic.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/62.jpg
Glass rails chromed.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/63.jpg
Drac track airbrushed a wood colour.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/64.jpg
Another detail view. Original skirt art in perfect condition after clean up, bonus!

Post mod close up.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/68.jpg
Franky scrubbed up real well and I only touched up the black areas with acrylic gloss and then with matt clear on the shiny bits.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/69.jpg
Original Coffin, Stickers and Drac dolly with feet, scrubbed up well too.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/70.jpg
More detail... Notice post mod under red Drac micro cover.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/71.jpg
Clean like it should be.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/72.jpg
More detail... New door and legs from Wayne at TPF. The legs, rails and bolts were re-chromed.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/73.jpg
More detail... A few more in the background to receive the same treatment.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/74.jpg
Re-zinc on the lock-down assembly. New decals too.

Looks great :023:

I played this game at Shock_And_Awe's place the other day and enjoyed it.

You replaced the globes with new ones ? You didnt go for LED's ??

Finny
30th December 2008, 06:22 AM
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/75.jpg
Cleaned up, tested and reinstalled.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/76.jpg
The o'll Tranny scrubbed up well.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/77.jpg
Red heat shrink on the removable ground strap. Cab air vent grill Scotch brighted and 2 pac cleared. Head lock down wing nuts chromed.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/78.jpg
New leg brackets with extended bolt threads sourced from TPF.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/79.jpg
Getting there...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/80.jpg
New glass rail channels and stop rail at top.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/81.jpg
Some re-plated bits...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/82.jpg
After a lot of R&D, I came up with the idea of protecting the corners & front bottom with these Stainless steel covers. If any one is interested I'll mass produce kits for cheep. Let me know. Must be used with some sort of pin cab protector behind the leg. They look cool and covers up the joint and chips.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/83.jpg
The lower rail mod which would be part of the kit.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/84.jpg
Under view of front protector.

Rear leg.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/87.jpg
More cab detail...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/88.jpg
Black masked the art edges the same way as the main cab.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/89.jpg
More cab detail...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/90.jpg
More cab detail...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/91.jpg
I found out the hard way. You cannot zip tie the excess cable to make it look pretty because when you fold the head down it pulls up through the hole yanking on the Tranny... Dah!!!

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/92.jpg
New cable clips and screws to help give it a buff look.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/93.jpg
More cab detail...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/94.jpg
Brand new glass and buttons from David at bumper. I used washers on the side rail because when the stock coach bolt is puled tight the chrome will crack or flake so a S/S washer was used to disperse the pressure... found out the hard way and had one of the rails re-chromed after I fuked it. All is good now!

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/95.jpg
The money shot! I had the hand rail chromed which looks cool with all the other shiny shit. The new edge protector kit was polished to match the other chrome bits and the front art was 2 packed clear. Overall, the front end is very robust! Should last for years...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/96.jpg
Chrome everywhere! Also black masked the start button which is now under 2 pack clear.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/97.jpg
New plastic trims and bulbs added here as well. This scrubbed up very well. Tranz 10 out of 10.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/98.jpg
Under the hood, nice and clean.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/99.jpg
Final assembly...

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/100.jpg
Data decals to go here....

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/101.jpg
Tranz lock to be installed. No glass in this shot.

http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa87/FinnysPinnys/102.jpg
The money shot! It plays fast & sharp and feels unbelievable. I think it's well worth the effort! and I hate to know how many hours went into it and all the calls from the Fun Buster asking when will you be home... May do another or a Circus Vol next.

Cheers,

Finny.


Looks great :023:

You replaced the globes with new ones ? You didn't go for LED's ??

I'll have a chat with Greg about that as he supplied me with a set for my TOM which looked awesome.

Is this a keeper I hope?

I don't think they left the Williams factory looking that nice!


Weldment above has seen better days. Below is the tough third party Stainless steel version. Just hop it doesn't fall to bits like the old one did! A massive improvement though.

If it's the Kerry Stair item, not a chance, have his AFM version, still solid after five years. Kerry's the guy that got the Big Bang Bar project on track, does great work.

Is this a keeper I hope?

My intention was to build the best machine for the most conscientious collector then put the funds towards Finny's Pinnys new fit out... but unfortunately the current market is extremely slow and I'm reluctant to sell at the moment.



Looks fantastic, Finny.

totally stunning mate

what kind of hours went into doing that? It would take me half a decade lol

I did it over 3 months part time but not quite sure of the exact hours. Next time I'll log the hours. I don't think about the time factor, I just perform each task accordingly then on to the next one, eventually you run out of things to do. Anyway I rebuild machines because I enjoy it. Just passion I suppose.

In regards to the protector kits... I'll do a batch and write up a thread for those who are interested.



Awesome job mate! Makes me want to do another restore!
Q: Do you sand the 2pac 8x by hand?
Also what do you use when cutting & polishing? I could never get mine looking like glass.. close tho.

Yes, sanded with a compressed air vibration sander with 1500 grit. Automotive type. Cut and polish was done with a yellow type sponge at low rpm. Don't have all the specs here at the moment as I'm at home but no rocket science here. Each coat was dried rock hard before proceeding to the next stage. I'm currently investigating a PPG ceramic clear coating which claims to be 4 times harder. The auto shops hate it because its hard to cut down. I'm going to test it on the next machine and I'll write it up.


awesome thread. thanks for taking the time to do that. what an amazing shop out. is this one for the cafe?
what brand clear coat do you use?

Good coating but it takes to long to dry between coats. Don't have the spec here so when I get to the shop next I'll post it up.



I don't think they left the Williams factory looking that nice!
If it's the Kerry Stair item, not a chance, have his AFM version, still solid after five years. Kerry's the guy that got the Big Bang Bar project on track, does great work.

Not sure who it was from as I order crap from everywhere but I'll look that up to and post it up.


Thanks for all your Kudos and feedback as It's good to see that there others out there who appreciate fine pinball !!!

Truly awesome work, Finny. Looks absolutely brilliant. :023:

You'll need glasses and gloves to play that pinball now. :D

Watch out Ryan. It looks like Finny may do his Cirqus Voltaire next. Yours may no longer be the best in Oz, if his attention to detail on Monster Bash is any indication.

Great pics, by the way.

Cheers,

I mixed and sampled on the bottom of the playfield (hidden area) for reference then when matched airbrushed it on.

Oh yeah, final fig 12k...

Well done.
Although it's an excellent build I never saw that price coming...

'Cause of this, I've now listed my GnR, Doubt I get those prices but hoping to be rewarded for the work I did to mine....

Well done Finny on the machine and the price. I'm sure it's more than worth the effort you put into it. Someone would be kicking themselves a little for not using the buy it now option.

I wonder if it would have made any difference if it finished at a more respectible hour?

And Scott, that is one very nice GnR you have there and you've done a great job on the resto. Glad I managed to squeeze in a game on it the other night while checking out the Atomiswave.

Cheers,

Claudio
