So, I picked up my Scared Stiff today - very happy and once again thanks @chris b - Chris explained that some things will need to be done, hence the price and I am happy with what works I am going to put a bit into this actually. I absolutely love this game, so it will get the best treatment I can. So she is in, and will get it up to scratch over the next month or so... it is playable still which is great.
I will list out the issues that I can see with it right now, and what I plan to do, but as with (how far I got with) Laserball, I will need all of your help most likely.
Factory Settings Restored - Complete
I have read up on this and I think that this will be the RAM issue, but any pointers on how to double check would be appreciated. I have tested the batteries I have put in tonight, and getting 4.6V corner to corner (i.e. bottom left to top right). My plan is to get that board out anyway and install a remote holder, but was thinking you can get a NVRAM right? Who in the UK supplies these and are they easy to install? (To be honest, I will get the engineer from work to solder this board again )
Rubbers - Complete
Going to order a full rubber set for this. Should be about £18.
Lights - Complete
LED kit I have seen for £48 for the playfield, not sure what it will be for the GI too, was going to keep incandescent but for the price of LED's - why not hey. Budget of £20 for that too.
Pop Bumpers - Complete
One has been replaced with a non - "lifting" pop bumper and the one to the right of the crate is sloppy as heck... any advice on getting these more responsive? Chris gave me another pop bumper to use, it is red as the blue are unobtanium, but I am happy to put that in the middle and give a blue, red, blue look.
Create Decal - On Back Order
Available for around £17. The one on this has been hammered.
Spider Hole Wear - Complete
Yea this has it quite bad, but I think the "majority" apart from the gorgeous ones out there that have had it repaired. I am going to get the cliffy set, £27.55 for that and the skill shot I assume. Needs to be done.
Bone Ramp - Complete
I am getting the return from spider hole go back down into the spider hole, or on the loop, it not flowing over. It has the two "flaps" if you will... and seems to have had the repair, is this an adjustment, or should i get another kit to fix?
Crate Ware - Next Time
Might get a T decal, not quite sure. £??? Where do they come from?
Star Posts - Complete
4 or 5 smashed up a bit. I will order 6 because they are 75p... £4.50.
Bloody good clean - Complete
Free - just my time.
With postage, that puts me up to £150 but probably £170 if i can source a NVRAM.
So, any suggestions, tips or thoughts? I think there are a few owners on the forum @DRD (after playing his, that is why I HAD to have one, thanks lol), @Neil McRae, @bethamari and @Pharo that I know of.
Look forward to any advice anyone can give. Thank you for all of your help.
