View Full Version : Playfield Nightmare!!!!

26th July 2006, 07:14 PM
Think I will have my work cut out restoring the playfield on this one! It is a "Bad Girls" by Gottlieb (Syst 80B).
The mylar and "touchups" are like a Sara Lee cake....layer upon layer.


If it comes to the crunch I will have to cut up my old porno mags and paste the images on the playfield. Will call it "Pinball Porn"

Judgeboz and I were working on the concept the other night.

Words can't describe!

Have you tried removing any of the paint? You could try some Goof off which is good for paint like that ;)

or just make an entirly knew theme as you've mentioned. I'd make an Evil Dead theme ;)

26th July 2006, 07:35 PM
Holy crap, where would you start? at least it looks like the paint might be waterbased?

26th July 2006, 07:38 PM
Bloody hell even 5 year olds are doing playfield touchups these days.
You couldn't make it any worse

Man o Man what was that idiot thinking:unsure

26th July 2006, 08:26 PM

Gotta be vintage porn to match the backglass though!

Its more retro than vintage!
One of the chicks in the backglass reminds me of Brigitte Nielsen!

26th July 2006, 10:06 PM
Yeah OK if you wanna be pedantic about it!

Hay Darksoul - that should be a good machine to document for that restoration DVD??:unsure

Could be. I've only managed to track down ONE playfield, that's in USA. WIll be about $400AU to get it here.

It may lend itself to a go at making a playfield on the PC and getting it printed out as an overlay. Either in keeping with the Bad Girls theme (who the hell would know if it was accurate or not!) or also doing a new translite.

Evil Dead idea mentioned before sounds interesting!

27th July 2006, 09:21 AM
Wow nice touch up job. Can you give me the guys number!!!!

27th July 2006, 10:32 AM
System 80? Any thought of ditching the lot and converting it to a HH or BH :unsure You need a new playfield and translite anyway?

27th July 2006, 10:54 AM
What about doing your own art work !!!

New cabinet. make an overlay for the playfielf print a translite

27th July 2006, 11:04 AM
On Evil Dead theme - you could mix it with classic images from Army of Darkness as well

Picture this - http://www.fileitunder.com/uploaded_images/Army%20of%20Darkness-718884.jpg at the c3entre of the playfield

Or this - http://imagecache2.allposters.com/images/pic/ATA/24634M~Army-of-Darkness-Posters.jpg

I even found you a PF toy !! - http://images.google.com.au/imgres?imgurl=http://www.starstore.com/acatalog/ash-plush-01.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.starstore.com/acatalog/Starstore_Catalogue_ARMY_OF_DARKNESS_SERIES_1_PLUS H__4826.html&h=240&w=209&sz=13&hl=en&start=20&tbnid=-3rSRkcqvPLR5M:&tbnh=110&tbnw=96&prev=/images%3Fq%3Darmy%2Bof%2Bdarkness%26svnum%3D10%26h l%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DN

Lol Made me laugh looking at that!..
Would it be more valuable to keep it original, buy that I mean to keep it as Bad Girls Pinny, or to change it's Identity?

Could project either way

There are plenty of Army of Darkness toys you can use :


and have the Book of the Dead DVD as the centre piece: (I've got both Part 1 & 2! part 2 screams when you poke the eyeball)

I'm liking this Army of Darkness idea but sounds, what am I going to do about sounds????????????
The multi sound board in development in the USA for Gottlieb Sys 1 and Sys 80 and 80a will not work as Bad Girls is an 80b.

So that still leaves me out in the cold re sounds unless I make up some sort of sound board myself.

Cant just "swap in" a HH either as it's an 80 not 80b.
