Finally.. after a week of tedium.. real progress is happening on my Simpsons Pinball Party. I was able to spend several hours late Saturday night and Sunday rebuilding the playfield. It’s my favorite part of the restoration – putting shiny new and cleaned parts back on. It’s also like the latter stages of a jigsaw puzzle – the ‘velocity’ of adding parts goes way up once the number of parts remaining start going down.
After Sunday, I’ve almost finished the lower playfield. I completed the right side along the flipper and added Itchy and Scratchy back to their perches. I rebuilt and reassembled Daredevil Bart and put him back on. I also cleaned up Comic Book Guy and added him to his Treehouse Ramp perch. I put the garage ramp and the Treehouse Ramp on as well. All that is left on the lower level is the wireforms and the Moe’s ramp.
I’m still a long way from done – I’ve got to rebuild the entire upper playfield and I have to recondition the cabinet. But, it’s nice to see real progress.
