Flash Gordon Pinball Machine
1981 Bally Flash Gordon Pinball Machine. Listing this machine for my Neighbor. He picked this game up for a winter project and has spent countless hours to finish it to where it is today. Now it is complete and ready for you to enjoy! This is a brutal game and plays very fast. Good theme, great colors and would look great in your home. If you want the details read below. If you want a bulletproof turn-key game that is ready to enjoy, reach out to discuss. I saw what this restoration took to complete over this past winter, and I can tell you many, many hours were involved. The attention to detail and quality was amazing. You could not have one restored for this price. Hardtop installed (overlay over the original playfield). Comet 2SMD cool white LEDs bulbs in backbox and GI (General Illumination). Comet 2SMD color matched in all inserts. Pin-tech LED displays with red/and or amber filters (so the score can illuminate in orange or red if you want). Cabinet sanded down and repainted. Pinball Pimp stencil kit used for stenciling (for the repainting, to match all the original details). New chrome legs with new leg levelers. New playfield plastic screws and stainless acorn nuts.

New strobe bulb installed and works properly (For center of back board, to Flash Gordon). Powder coated rails and lock down bar.
