It was suggested we should store the Shop Logs people write to one place so they will not be lost. They are a fantastic resource to the community as they help people see how things are done and can be used when you are stuckas you didn't take enough pictures. They also can inspire people to strip down their machines, give them a good clean and restore them to former glory.

Shop Logs posted in other areas will be moved here to preserve them, plus other threads which show breakdown and rebuilds will also be moved if they end up a sort of shop log.

There are no real rules for your shop logs but we do like pictures so I would ask if you can always try to take some before shots so we can compare them to the after ones.
Thread titles should include the name of the machine so people can find ones that relate to their own projects.
Update: A shop log can now be marked as "In Progress" or "Complete" to help show a full completed piece of work.
Thanks.
:)

Haven’t done a full strip down and deep clean on my T.Z for 3 years but in doing so I bought some new items.
the large plastic ramp I bought in clear plus the metal slot machine had been welded and was in a mess, the replacement has a extra support for the target that bends after awhile, managed to purchased a nearly full plastic set for £45 on flee bay which has made a massive difference, replaced all the G.Is bulbs to comet and Wow! what a difference Shining through the new plastics.
mods bought was the camera, a new metal spiral ramp, lighted door panel that has the extra flashers built in plus the silly card that’s under the mini playfield in yellow to match the other protectors on the playfield.
Owned this T.Z for about 15 years £900 paid back then but over the last 3 years I’ve thrown quite a bit of money at it to get looking very bright and shiny, I counted all the mods done over the years and I was shocked 30 added from extra lights, decals, speaker upgrade, colour DMD.
what a play? Pop over to forest hill, london. and I will show you all the tasteful mods that I’ve done.
Alan
