Not pictured here: Mousin' Around pinball & my personal MAME box, in a Centipede cabinet (at my house), Slick Chick (out being repaired), Doctor Who pinball (at my house), and Armor Attack, which houses my ZVG Vector MAME system.

Gottlieb 'Spirit of '76' restoration
12/26/03 Rescued from a dusty old warehouse. Every plastic is broken!
1/21/04 Cleaning up playfield... the new plastic set really helps.
1/29/04 Cleaned inserts and replaced bumper bodies. Looks good enough to play! But it can't. Still gotta deal with the relays...
3/12/04 Got it back from Mike Cousins, working great! Repro'd center plastic and it's ready to go.
Williams 'Pinbot' restoration (current)
10/26/03 Oh no! Looks like it was stored outside!
but look... the playfield was factory mylared. It's better than my 'good' Pinbot...& the (flat) plastics are all intact!
11/22/03 - 12 chips later, MPU, sound board, and displays are alive!
12/17/03 - Hours and hours of cleaning later, the playfield is starting to look better than my 'good' Pinbot.
3/14/04 - Finally did something on this project - picked up a new cabinet and backbox in Tallahassee.
3/16/04 - After patching and painting it, I put the new cabinet together and prepared to transfer all the guts.
3/18/04 - Almost finished. The wiring harness was a lot of fun to transfer lemme tell you.
3/19/04 - Wow what an improvement! Still have to do the bottom of the playfield though.
Gottlieb 'Slick Chick' restoration (still ongoing)
1/18/02 - 'fresh' off of ebay. Nasty!
1/19/02 - playfield teardown. Under the grime, beautiful paint!
1/20/02 - Rotten looking cabinet too. That's gotta be dealt with...
2/24/02 - repaint bottom cabinet (it was too far gone not to)
4/11/02 - lots of electrical work still to do, incl. replacing two missing relays.
3/31/06 - Still haven't had time to finish this project!

DISCLAIMER: I collect, restore, and enjoy both pinball and video games. While I consider pinball to be more 'pure', I value both types of coin-op game, and believe a good arcade should cater to both interests!
