So after fitting the television in the pinball machine I decided to place an order for some of the parts that I would need. I ordered two sets of flipper buttons, one red and one white. I decided to go with the groovy game gear trueleaf buttons. While I was at it I also ordered a ledwiz 32 and some quick disconnects. I also ordered 5 RGB flashers and matching heatsyncs from ebay. These are coming from china and say that they wont be in till next month. Ouch… The last order that I placed was with pinballlife.com. Here is where the bulk of the parts are coming from. I ordered leg level covers, buttons, springs, cabinet protectors, and a whole slew of other things that I cannot even remember. I also took this time to order some novus 1 and 2 cleaner and 5 pinballs. But why do I need novus and pinballs? This is a virtual cabinet. Well last sunday I fired up my dad’s old D. Gottlieb Kewpie Doll machine. This machine is an EM and being that it sat for 10 years I wasn’t holding my breath that it would work. Amazingly it fired right up and played. Only a few lights were out. Unfortunately the playfield is pretty dirty and looks to have some white fuzzy mold in a few spots. The mold isn’t bad but I want to get it taken care of asap with the novus and then get a nice coat of wax on it. I am sure the balls that are in it are in need of replacing so I ordered those and it is also in dire need of new rubber. Marco sells a rubber kit for this machine so I will probably order from there when the time comes. Next week should be fun though as I will have two large orders coming in. Can’t wait!
