View Full Version : Theatre of Magic Restoration

So I picked up this little local gem before Xmas. Overall in pretty good nick, except I doubt it had ever had a clean in its 19 or so years!!

Play field itself was quite good, just some very small wear spots around the Haunted Basement. All of the inserts were fine. Just needed one almighty clean!

Lots of pics were taken to make the rebuild a little easier:

The following was done:

PF stripped
All metal posts and lane guides polished
Ramps cleaned, new ramp wiring looms installed
New rubber kit fitted
New trunk
New plastic set (and protectors)
New Playfield Protector (the full overlay)
New balls
new white stationary targets
New flippers with superbands
Full LED treatment (sourced from Luke)
Full cleaned cabinet, inside and out
New shooter rod and housing

Pretty happy with the result:


Just a few little jobs to finish it off. Coin door, treat the chrome legs, and fix the pesky F904 fuse blowing issue!!!!!!

is a cool pin that one - i have one also
can't believe how people just play them and don't clean or service them
