I am restoring a Coney Island machine. It is in fairly good shape. The play field has some wear and a couple of coils are weak. What  is the best product to clean and protect the playfield and where can i find replacements for all the coils in the machine.

Thanks for your help.

I have some New Old Stock coils on hand excluding flipper coils of which I have gotten them from Steve Young's Pinball Resource. You might want to try him for them.

Actually, nearly all the game plan games Ive seen online have degrading backglasses. Is this an issue overall with the Game plan stuff??

Hi,

Well, regarding the backglass issue, we've really noticed just the OPPOSITE: the vast majority of Game Plan machines that we acquire have outstanding backglasses (and the remainder are usually good to very good!!). This makes sense, since so many of these games had "died" early in their lifetime due to bad MPU boards (i.e. from battery leakage). That simply means that any possible damage, due to heat from the lamps, did not have a chance to occur. Although a backglass can lose paint due to environmental conditions (humidity, etc.) most paint loss can be attributed to excessive heat.

There was one "Coney Island" backglass for sale on the Mr. Pinball classified; you should definitely check there first, then check with Mayfair, too.


By the way, just to let everyone know: we still have some new Game Plan MPU boards available - see our ad under the "Parts for Sale" area....


Thanks,

I have all NOS coils available with the exception of flipper coils also. I also have spare parts including most plastics, inserts and even a cabinet. I have seen both perfect backglasses and junk ones.  It is all depending on how the glass and game was stored. Some of my used backglasses look better than my NOS glasses.

Thanks for the feed back, I am a new pinball junkie, I also realized the sound board is screwed up in the CI I just picked up. My buddy is going to try to repair it, he works with some good electronics guys that are qualified. Im assuming since I have the schematic to that board they can weed there way through it. Out of couriousity is there any SSU-3 boards out there??....

Also, just curious... what is the deal with CI being a white cabinet but the flyers show a blue cabinet??? Did they do both, or was that just a prototype in the picture on the flyer?

The four CI's I've had are White cabinets, I have seen pictures of ONE blue that looked like it was on location at one time- whether the blue was a restoration or not the world may never know.

Early CI's were in a blue Cabinet. My first CI had a Blue cabinet.
I didn't realize at the time that it was a limited production cabinet. The ones I have now are all white.

Instead of printing onto glass, how about printing onto Lexan. I know a sheet of Lexan is like- a million dollars- but I wonder if that isn't the way to go.
