Picked this up in September 2013 from Nanuet, NY with Ms. Sophie.
Remind me to never go back down there again unless I feel like traffic jams where it takes 30 minutes to go 2 miles. Awesome fun!!! Thank God she was along with me to pass the time otherwise I would have probably just parked the truck and started walking home. :o)
The game was bought as a project for $1400 and a project it definitely was.
In addition to needing flipper protectors to hide some minor flipper wear, plastic leg protectors were needed to hide side art sticker damage. In the pictures you can see I needed to paint a few bare wood spots black... even after adding the leg protectors.
The playfield was really dirty when I bought Elvira but she cleaned up nicely. There are some bumps and bruises on the ol' gal but she looks and plays really damn nice now.
I installed LEDs in the head and inserts to really make the colors pop. I left the GI as incandescent because I just like the way they look on some games.
This was indeed a project machine and while the price was decent... I should have probably tried to pay a couple hundred less. If you add up at all repairs listed below you'll see there are a lot of new(and some expensive) parts on the old gal... but I think she looks fantastic so it was worth it.
There are a lot more pictures HERE and HERE and HERE.
