  9. thought i would offer up a trade, rather than sell at this point. picking up a williams spot-pool from 1959 tomorrow. the game won't fit into my collection so offering it up. looking for a trade for a gottlieb 1960s or 1970s em. the spot-pool has a hand painted bglass but they have done a pretty good job. backglass resto offer repros. these are the only photos i have at the moment. will update with more tomorrow.
  10. would be easier if you looked at a williams em from the 70s
  11. a complete set of playfield plastics for a gottlieb drop a card. one had a part missing and the 'king' plastic has a crack. they are dirty and need a clean. asking $30 posted to anywhere in australia.
  12. Hi Steve, I know where there is one that will be ready for sale soon.
  13. mibs put on hold. just couldn't do 3 repaints on the cabs in a row. so started on drop a card. the game is very dirty, though strangely still plays well. so will clean this up over the next month or so, them attack the mibs. fortunately have games in the queue.
  14. thanks guys good old @ddstoyshas come to the rescue (again)
  15. oh why? bought another project yesterday. this one was a true 'barn find' as it had been sitting there for 40 years. with the baseball almost done and grande domino waiting for the next pbr order to finish. the game holds many great memories growing up. it's also the only game that i know of that you can win 3 replays on one shot.. which is the outside specials/score and racking up an extra ball in the backglass that all award free games. as a kid growing up playing pinball this was always the biggest rush. so she is painted, which makes it the 4th out the last 5 picked up with painted cab. it has also been 'modernised' from 2" to 3" flippers. so will start on her tomorrow. the legs are the worst set ever but hey they are 31" and that's all that matters.
  16. looking to buy 3 of the backglass animation balls that were used in the following gottlieb games: mibs soccer/super soccer top score/300 they can be dirty or red or white (both were used)
