Converting my Time Zone to a virtual pin

Post by Grevier2 on Tue Dec 06, 2016 5:00 pm

Hey guys long time no chat! Im still playing but haven't got anything new in a while.

I bought that little potc zizzle off little eric a while back and once I beat it (which was surprisingly hard took me like a week of everyday playing but I also suck) and I have never played it since. So I was debating turning it into a virtual pin. After watching many videos virtual pins look amazing and I now want to gut that Time Zone EM. The one Dave owned and big Eric.

The pin as it is needs work before its even playable. changing bulbs a while back I did something and screwed up the tunnel lights and have never got them working again and the left flipper solenoid is toast. many of the back lights only work intermittently like the ball counts and extra ball.

It wouldn't take much to get it going good again but id rather a full sized virtual in its place.

You guys think its a crying shame to destroy this pin like this? Any advice would be great. If I do scrap the pin is anything salvageable or worth keeping? Id take the bulbs but not sure if anything else is reusable.

Id be curious about anyones thoughts on this.

Irv said he had none. Does anyone else? Another thing is im pretty much out of room. So id have to replace one anyway. You think the Time Zone is sellable as it is? I know its not a highly sought after unit and it needs quite a bit of tlc. Or maybe someone has an empty cab they can trade towards the time zone?

I am not sure what is fair. I paid 500$ and its in less working order then when I got it.. 2-300$ would make me happy!

Also Irv has a F-14 cab im gonna pick up this weekend. Even better then the time zone!

Let me know if your friend is interested and ill post in for sale here too.
