The ultimate machine.

Got this one from the same guy as my Cyclone. This one was in just as bad of shape. I finished shopping this, and sold it to a local direct-to-home pinball dealer. I got a decent amount of cash for it.

Here are some pictures of my Pin*Bot, after a complete playfield cleaning.

Now for some BEFORE and AFTER cleaning/shopping pictures. Brace yourself, the BEFORE pictures are quite disgusting.

These legs were incredibly rusty and dirty. I decided to use some SOS pads and a TON of elbow grease to clean these. After soaking them in numerous cleaning agents (including Castrol SuperClean), I resorted to scrubbing with an SOS pad. In hindsight, I probably should have used a rust remover instead, but the results were decent none-the-less. The legs after what seemed like HOURS of scrubbing. The results are well worth it.

The Pop-Bumper area before cleaning. YUCK! Novus #2, and Carnuba-Based waxes can do WONDERS!
