  • Gotlieb Funland

    Itís been a long time coming but I have finally got myself a new project to work on, I picked this up on Saturday with big thanks to Stu [MENTION=935]Pinballer[/MENTION].
    It needs a lot of love and attention and its got a few minor headbox and cabinet repairs to do but apart from that itís a pretty solid and complete machine.
    It is going to get a full going over cosmetically and mechanically which will include full cab re-stencil and a good clean up of the playfield which looks fairly nice apart from having years of grime built up on it.
    I have already started compiling a list of parts for a big PBR order which will include just about anything that is made that can be replaced, Iím also getting a few things from Pinball Rescue just to add to those finishing touches.
    So stay tuned for updates!!

      You got a real beaut IMO.
      A personal fave although never owned one.
      Always loved Funland for the colours and happy theme.

          Should clean up nice

          Isn't Funland a 2" flipper game?

            Yes, looking at Ipdb they've cracked the bottom of the slingshot plastics and drilled new holes?



            I think you can see the hole under the right flipper on the opening post?

                Nasty !
                With 3" flippers the ball would just be able to go between them

                      Ok time to start getting into this resto so while Iím still compiling the big order that Iím about to make for PBR, I thought first things first so before any cabinet repairs and stripping paint off, the cabinet artwork has to be copied and stencils made so thatís what Iíve been up to for the last couple of days.

                        Ok a bit more work done this weekend, there were a few repair jobs to the head and cabinet that I was dreading but when I actually got into it they werenít that bad and I was really happy with they way they turned out.

                        First was the head box it had a big split in the bottom that needed repairing, a bit of gluing and screwing and filler and sanding to hide all the screws and nicks you will never see the repair when it gets the under coat.

                        Then pretty much every corner of the head box needed a repair they were all damaged from years of neglect.
                        And again more gluing and screwing and of course filler to hide everything and when painted youíd never know that there was ever any damage.

                        And I also had a bit of time to start the cab repairs but this will be a slow ongoing process but so far Iím really happy with the way things are turning out.

                          Look what showed up in the post today all the way from Rochester USA, my 3D printed Gotlieb ball in play light diverter.
                          Just one more piece to the ever growing puzzle, I actually didnít even know that I needed one until it was brought up in another thread, you learn new things all the time with each new project.

                            Bit more work done today itís so hard to find time during the week.
                            Finally got the cab fully stripped and sanded down also got all the cabs minor repairs done.
                            Just have to wait for all the filler to dry and another quick sand back then I can start the undercoating.

                              Not much progress done lately but every little bit counts, finally got the cab all sanded down and all repairs to the head and cab are all fixed, and now with the first of the under coats on you canít tell where any of the repairs have been done at all.
                              Just need another coat of undercoat tomorrow and then I will leave it till next weekend to start on the cabs final colour which is antique white.
