Rebuilt Flipper

I ordered the parts I needed from Marco Specialties, a new coil and a flipper rebuild kit. Once I've cleaned the playfield, I'll reinstall this onto the bottom of the playfield.

Coil to be Rebuilt

Removed the fried coil from the bottom of the playfield. I'll try to salvage what I can from is and rebuild the flipper.

Cooked Coil

It looks like the upper right flipper in the High Speed actually caught fire. There coil itself is slagged and there is a lot of heat/flame damage to the underside of the play field.

Assembled High Speed

First off, I got the pinball head installed on the body. The machine powers up just fine, a handful of lamps are out and the rubbers are in terrible shape. The most significant problem is the upper right flipper is out.

The play field is a mess, doesn't look like it has been cleaned in a long time. Fortunately clean up is easy with Novus 2, there is some serious damage to the paint in the middle of the play field, there probably isn't much I can do about it.

High Speed Pinball

I bought a pinball machine, loaded it up in my Rogue and brought it home. I had enough time to attach the legs, I'll mount the head in place tomorrow.

The game is a real mess, restoring it should be a challenging project.
