Speeding ticket from the way home from Daventry!!

79 on a motorway FFS :eek:
I’ve resigned myself to cruise control or speed limiter on 77mph. Actual speed more likely to be recorded at 75mph. Under the prosecution speeds for most if not all forces. Get there when I get there sort of thing. Boring

2nd pin arrived today! Thanks to @mark9 and to Martin for getting it here - it has made the day of a little boy (and his little brother) who are currently isolating with chicken pox.

I think it got played 20 times before breakfast!

[If Martin's brother-in-law is reading, sorry that we seemed unprepared for a 7:30am drop off. We'd been up half the night with a very itchy four year old... who promptly forgot all about the itching when he saw the new pinball machine].

Hmm, border force were in for a pleasant surprise... can't think why they're so interested in parcels from Europe, they never were before brexit..!

Well I officially get it back Friday but this is my family guy that has had the Chris B touch... Plays like new and looks like new... Things Chris has done is completely rebuild it, clean, powder coat, install colour dmd, install speaker lights, fix a fault, rebuild flippers, replace figures, new ramps, new rubbers, led upgrade, install of tiny tv running family guy clips and the list goes on... Big thanks to Chris B for bringing this old bird back to new condition I'm over the moon with it

Today I received insert ladders for stranger things and they are very nice indeed.
Had a full set for gb which were excellent, only 3 needed on ST but got rid of those awful white inserts and now looks like fire for burn it back 😃
Also thanks to Chris B for the standard premium apron which I drilled and transferred the uv kit from the pro apron I received to it, and again to Chris B for sending me 2 replacement apron window plastics as I managed to scrape the back of one when drilling the holes, I should have removed them first, so thanks Chris for not making my mistake permanent !
As I have a pro it doesn’t have the apron plastic lights so thanks to Phil for getting these for me which I also fitted today and wired up to the white GI.
Along with swopping the red flasher domes to purple, again supplied by Phil.
Also changed the awful green start button to red which looks like purple when lit lol 😂 love it.
Also glad I went with the purple rubbers over the awful uv ones and they look stunning when they turn pink with the UV, pity my phone doesn’t capture the lights very well and looks spectacular in person.
Just the magnetic Apron to fit which arrives this week, die shooter rod, clear drops and get the powder coating done once my side armour arrives and job done

Well actually last week but installed this weekend.
Been waiting years for this to come to fruition.
Huge thanks to Jim @myPinballs for staying polite as I text him at all hours over the weekend for advice. He really is a legend. I’d have told me to **** off 🤣

Anyone else on here in the club?

Fantastic game, in my top 3 of all time favourite pins, would still have it but my wife didn’t get on with it and would have had Jim’s display if I still had it. Wonderful

My fav of that era by far and I would go so far to say it’s a FH beater (last pre DMD pin) which now is a close 2nd.
I bet it’s another level with Jim’s code.

Yeah I agree with you there Col. The game is great. Early code but I’m already harassing Jim with bits and bobs.
