Checkpoint pinball, produced by Data East in 1991.
This game was the first to utilize a dot matrix display.
Game has a rally racing theme featuring Porsche cars. Turn the key to start gameplay, and feel the shaker motor imitating a purring engine. Animated backglass tachometer, multi-ball, and ramps. This game entertains.
The asking price is based on the pin being refurbished to “High End Player’sQuality” condition.
The photos in the gallery, at present, show the pin in it’s current condition.
Major work that will be done on this unit as follows:
Cabinet will be stripped, and sanded down to wood. All body repairs will be completed, then unit will be primed, then block sanded with 1000 grit.
The base coat will then be applied. Once dry, a new set of top quality decals will be laid down, with cut-outs around the legs, and edges, which will prevent future decal rippling.
All the metal will be sandblasted, and powder coated; I’m thinking navy blue, but if your ordering the pin, choose your own color.
The playfield will be stripped bare, topside and underside. All the old yellowed, and scratched Mylar will be removed, the hand pained touch-ups will be completed. Finally, 4 passes of 2-part automotive clear coat will be applied.
The existing backglass will have the player windows tapped off and then sealed with acrylic enamel clear, so it will not degrade.
All the electronics will be updated, and many old connectors, and capacitors changed, so the unit is reliable.
All playfield metal parts, such as posts, will be polished in a tumbler with a special medium, for over 1 week; end result, they will look new.
All mechanical components will be disassembled, cleaned, and rebuilt to original specifications.
A new playfield plastic set May be installed.
New LED alphanumeric player score displays will be installed, making the high voltage generation section obsolete, greatly improving reliability.
All #47 & #555 bulbs will be changed to color matching 2-SMD frosted, high intensity Comet brand. All back box bulbs will usually be cool AKA natural white. Likewise, most all playfield General Illumination (GI) will also be Cool White. Unlike Warm White, which has a red hue, cool white is pure white, and will illuminate the playfield much better.
A new sheet of tempered playfield glass will be installed.
Basically, everything you read about under “The Restoration Process”, which is broken into 3 parts (Board Sets-Playfield-Cabinet) will be done to this pin.
Notable Features: Auto Shooter, Shaker Motor, Ignition Key used as start button.
Production: 3,500 units
