Second Ramp Cleaned

I took apart the second ramp for cleaning. Originally I only gave it a once over and there areas that were pretty dirty. I would love to find the decals and change them but at present have not found and good sources. Mine are in pretty bad condition and seemed to have been rushed when stuck on.

Cleaning that dirt

Over 20 years of grime but my trusty bottle of K9 seemed to do the trick. This is the inside ramp for the mini play field. I don’t know why I did not clean it when I dismounted the mini play field but its was black as coal.

Work restarted

It certainly has been a long time since the last update on this site. I managed to get some time to dedicate to the machine and changed out the main ball ramp which I had purchased a while back. I’m hoping that the crop circles on my balls will cease. Don’t really want scratched balls flying around my play field. Could cause some nasty damage.

This is the play field with the tube/ramp removed. Lots of muck needed cleaning.

Artwork restoration finished

After a blinding day of beers, wine and Kefta, Susana finished the artwork restoration. It looks very cool.

Now I still need to change a few things re-ploish the play-field as the first time around I did not use good cleaning products.

Crop circles on my balls?

Well, this is quiet strange indeed. These are brand new balls and I’ve only been playing for a short time and look at the markings? Not sure where the hell they come from? I’ve checked most of the play field for sharp edges but can’t find anything? I’m sure I’ll suss it.

I also got nearly all of the lights working. In the end I had to remove circuit boards and re-solder pins. Reminds me of my first year in high school.
