SPF Right Around the Corner
« on: September 01, 2012, 01:02:01 AM »
I just opened a box of EM parts from Pinball Resource tonight and the first thing that popped out at me was a flyer/card for Southern Pinball Festival in November!  Kind of ironic, because the parts are for a recently acquired Gottlieb Fire Queen that I plan on taking to the show.  This is a really cool 1977 classic drop target rich Gottlieb EM.  The game is HUO, but has not been maintained.  I stripped the playfield bare and cleaned with Magic Eraser.  It looks awesome now.   The cabinet is a little beaten up, but in the EM parts in the backbox and inside the cab are nice and clean and shiny!  I almost have the playfield back together and now with the parts received tonight from PBR it might be back together this weekend.  Hopefully I can get it up and running, otherwise it will go to Fred!

Anyway, now is the time to start thinking about what games you are bringing to the show and start getting them ready.  I still have a lot of work to do.  My collection has completely changed since last year's SPF.  I mean complete too, I don't own a single game that I did last November.  Hopefully everything will be in good shape for SPF and then they will just need a wipe down and a little tweaking before APE.

Here are a few teaser pics.

I've got my room too.  Will be nice to stay in the show hotel.  Looks like a really nice place too.
