Pinbot Pinball produced by Williams in 1986.
Serial Number 54902473
The asking price is based on the pin being refurbished to “Collectors Quality” condition.
The photos in the gallery at present, show the pin in it’s current condition.
This pinball played a pivotal roll in 1986, as it’s credited with bringing pinball back from the edge of extinction.
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, and block sanded with 1000 grit.
The base coat will then be applied. Once dry, each secondary color will be applied. I will use a “Pinball Pimp” stencil set. Then, the finished product will receive 4 layers of “acrylic enamel” clear coat; which provides a wet look, and really makes the colors pop! It’s also offers fantastic protection against light scratches.
All the cabinet metal will be sandblasted, and powder coated; I’m thinking Gold on this pin, but if your ordering, choose your own color.
The playfield will be stripped bare, and scrapped, as it is done. A new CPR “gold” rated playfield will be installed. A new playfield plastic set, and all new jewel posts. Almost all parts are changed out to new on a restoration such as this one.
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.
The player score displays will be changed to the new LED type, making the high voltage generating circuit 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.
The current backglass is a simple translite, it will be replaced with a REAL silkscreened artwork on tempered glass backglass, with mirrored highlights.
The upper mini playfield, and the skill shot conical red ramp will be replaced.
The side rails have to be replaced on this pin, as they are badly bent, same with the coin door.
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: Flippers (2), Pop bumpers (3), 5-target sinking bank (1), 3-bank drop targets (1), Kick-out holes (3). Opening skill shot sends ball up a conical ramp. Colorful playfield array of lights track progress of hitting targets. A dropping bank of 5 standup targets lowers, as a visor lifts, to reveal two kick-out holes. Upper level bagatelle mini-playfield. 2-ball multiball.
Production: 12,001 units.
