This section to really help others out with reference pics, notes, and other "gotchas" people may run into when working on their machines. It can be a GREAT resource for files- scans for plastic recreation, etc.

Remember, we have UNLIMITED storage, and the photos can be very high resolution.

Have fun and enjoy!

Couple of Notes-

10 PHOTOS AT A TIME PER POST (this is to not overload the server with high resolution stuff)

Please comment, ask questions, etc. in each post. If you have scans and resources to share, please don't hold back.

Also, if you want to list rubbers, bulbs, etc, we will post them as a listing at the beginning of each thread (along with other general notes).

Great idea Tim.

Now other noobs like me have another resource to try and figure this stuff out. :)

Very cool idea Tim, I'm getting tired of re-reading the Mr. Pinball repair tips of the day over and over again trying to find my answer. :lol:

I would also like to add... Many of you use(myself included) cloud services like Google drive, etc.... If you wanted to send me links, I would be more than happy to do the legwork of downloading your albums and posting them here and giving you the credit you deserve....

I don't have many (or any) albums I'd consider to be "restoration" albums, but I have tons of shopout pictures I could post for reference.

In fact - would it be preferable to just post a shared link for each of them to take the strain off of this site?

Yeah, I wouldn't consider what I posted restoration photos either... Those are my shop jobs....

I really wouldn't mind hosting them all here... No advertisements or bandwidth constraints. Plus if you are running low on free cloud storage, there is always unlimited storage right here....

Also, just one central location for all the different galleries.

I also think it would be fun to add a poll to each refurb thread- "difficulty to shop".... We all know some of these take a lot longer than others....

This is awesome! My next shop job I'll be sure to document a bit more than normal. Thanks for doing this, Tim!

Yeah, i was thinking the same thing.... I rarely take that many pics because I have done so many of them. I will start documenting more layouts/teardowns as well.

my next one to be done is Tales from the Crypt. I will probably start on it after Thanksgiving. I will try to remember to take lots of pictures.
