BOP 2.0 Kits look to be trickling out in Europe now.  US sounds to be close.  Would be awesome to get my 2.0 kit and PF about the same time.  Either way, I spent the last 4 days stripping my game.  Full on restoration has started.

Only thing finished so far is the backpanel light board.  Stripped down, repainted, cleaned harness and polished hardware :-)

Shines like a new Penny!!  about what is the cost for the BoP 2.0 now?  I am still riding the fence, I played it at EXPO and like it, almost like a different game.

I'm on the list and so happy that these are happening. I'd also love to see the drive wheel part number #03-8476 reproduced. Mine is worn and the head unit oftern has issues as a result. Any chance of these being done again?

I, too, had a hell of a time trying to find one for my machine. Ended up finding two, one of which came from a Twilight Zone. I am looking into possibly getting these reproduced.

That's great news thedrewster! My fingers are crossed that you get these happening. I'm in for one, hell I'd buy several if it helped make this happen. I'm sure I'm not the only one either.

Yes, the clearcoat guy screwed up the clearcoat and the playfields have to be re-screened ... this kindof stuff happens more than you think, which is why it's great that people with peter step up to make playfields. Latest is that he is ready for screening in the next week or so hopefully.

Take the time to make the right.   


BTW, is there an official wait list posted anywhere?

Bummer.  Sounds like this vendor has had issues with clear coat in the past too.  Hopefully they get it worked out quickly.  I'm racing them and right now I'm kicking their butt :-)

All coils and coil brackets have been cleaned, tumbled, polished and re-assembled.  All boards have now been cleaned and all connectors replaced and any previous owner hacks have been repaired.  All wire harnesses have been thoroughly cleaned.  No more dirt and they smell oh so pretty now. LOL!!!   Working on the cab more now.

One of 3 tables full of restored parts ready for a new home.

Does that mean that all of that first run of PF's were ruined??  What does "re-screened" mean?  The same messed up PF's :-\
