Blackout! Blackout! Blackout!

Shop Notes 25 April 2016 | Comments Off on Blackout! Blackout! Blackout!

We just finished a full shop job on this Blackout pinball machine. This is an older game, but definitely still fun. Check it out!

Blackout1

Williams came out with Blackout in 1980, and produced more than 7,000 of the machines. (IPDB)

Blackout2

Did you know this playfield layout was also used on the games “Heavy Metal” and Taito do Brasil’s “Vortex”? IPDB also reports that a nearly identical layout was used on Williams’ 1982 “Warlok.”

Blackout3

We gave this game a full shop job, pulling everything off the playfield to be polished, washed, tumbled, buffed, or otherwise cleaned.

Blackout4

We installed LEDs throughout the machine: insert, GI, and flashers.

Blackout5

A few cabinet touchups, and voila!

Blackout6

Enjoy your game, Bob!
