  • Greetings from GC

    Hi folks,

    I dont think I ever posted an intro even though I've been an occasional 'lurker'. Been in love with Bally's for as long as I can remember. Very first machine was a 1978 Playboy. I actually thought my father purchased it but only recently discovered it was a rental. I guess that's why the guy was so p***ed dad and I did a shoddy job of re-painting the cabinet

    Last week, I acquired a Williams Big Deal. A lovely EM that has been badly neglected. I've taken it on as a project for the previous owner who was happy to give it away for free (couldnt let him do that however). Unfortunately, his friend did him a "solid" by storing the machine in a storage container where it possibly sustained some water damage and became a home for a family of rats.

    Big shout out to Tony (Illawarra Steelers) who I spoke with yesterday. An absolutely lovely and highly knowledgeable chap who clearly has a passion for pinball and is willing to take the time to talk to complete newbies like myself. It made my day. Thanks Tony!

    I'm about to tackle parts of the restoration myself, e.g. cabinet and playfield. I'll post some progress pictures shortly.
