  • Nothing can't be restored. (pinballers too)

    Just reading Gibos thread about parting out pinballs that 'may' be beyond restoration and I thought I would fire up a few pics of some machines that I have saved from the rubbish heap to show others no matter how bad they are, some can be saved.

    Found. 6 old cocktails in an old Chicken Shed:





    Now show them some love:















    So there ya go.
    Sure it takes some hard yacker but SAVE THEM if they can be saved.
    I know pinballs are generally more expensive but if you can afford to buy it, then you can afford to restore it.


    Don't forget this one too:

    Hope that gives you guys some inspiration for those who hadn't seen those pics.

          man, wish I could find a cocktail table like that...

          Love the artwork on the space invaders, more the CP than anything else, that's bloody nice. Did you have to buy it or did you do it yourself?

                        omg... of course this is in NZ... so I spose storing such treasures in sheep sheds is common practice! over here we have a building called a warehouse!

                        Man, wish I could stumble apon a nice cocktail ghetto... though I am a tad choosy about which type.

                          Heh,

                          We have kicked the sheep out now and put old cabs in. They are worth more.

                          Yeah no use getting a cab if it isn't the right one for you. But could always resto and sell it.

                          I have a soft spot for the old Taitos.

                          This is one the was given to me for resto and it was in a very, very, very sad way.
                          The legs were very rusty and the base was badly dented etc. I had to make some new pieces up for the metal base because they were beyond repair.







                          Looks pretty tight now.
                          Still gotta finish a few small things though.

                            very nice... i'm not a big fan of those cabs personally, mainly cause I always found that CP hard to use. I much rather the ones you first posted.

                            either way mate you show yourself as a real quality restorer. the work you do is incredible.

                              I like the taito's alot, stop it!

                              You mustn't have any competition over there to stumble accross them like that.
