Firepower pinball, produced by Williams in 1980.
Another early Steve Ritchie Pin.
First game to feature Lane Change, which is activated by pressing the right flipper button. First electronic multi-ball. First animated displays.
The asking price is based on the pin being refurbished to “High End Player Quality” 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:
As described in the “Restoration Process” on this site; this pin will receive two of the three steps. Those being a complete board-set, and playfield restoration.
The cabinet, except for a few paint touch-ups, will be left as is. If this is the PIN FOR YOU, and you want a full Cabinet restoration, it can be done, just be aware the asking price offered here does not include such work.
All the metal will be sandblasted, and powder coated, I’m thinking a safety orange (see starship troopers), but if your ordering the pin, choose your own color.
The playfield will be replaced with a new Gold standard from CPR, as too many inserts are lifting out of the playfield to salvage it.
All the electronics will be updated, and many old connectors, and capacitors changed, so the unit is reliable.
All playfield metal posts, and such, will be polished in a tumbler with a special medium, for over 1 week, and the result is they will look new.
All playfield mechanical components will be disassembled, cleaned, and rebuilt to original specifications.
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.
The existing backglass will have the player display windows taped off, then misted / sealed with acrylic enamel clear to prevent any further degradation.
The original player displays look good, if they function well once power train is rebuilt, they will remain. If not they will be changed out to the new LED displays, which will increase the cost somewhat.
