Huge thank you to Gavin, Nino and AP
« on: April 08, 2015, 09:17:51 PM »
Today I received a package from Gavin big custom made wooden box with a big caution Neon light warning sticker on it!!!!    I was pretty excited thinking it was my Wurlitzer clock that Gav is restoring for me.       

HOLD ON THIS BOX IS TO SMALL TO BE MY CLOCK.

   Thought to myself for safety he probably ships the neons seperate from the huge steel clock went back to work for a minute then couldn't wait till I got home so I open it and to my surprise I see this Gottlieb logo Neon



    I email Gavin confused!!!   

Gavs reply said " it's a prototype he made to get the liscencing and its a gift to me from the forum for all the help I give people including himself.

   I'm still blown away by the generous gift and have mounted it to the top of my 1955 Gottlieb marathon pinball

  Thanks so much to Gavin and everyone involved I LOVE IT

Its an appreciation of all the effort and parts you give the members here. I contacted Nino just before Xmas and suggested I donate it to Daniel on behalf of the forum.. he thought it was a top idea. You were meant to get it in time for Xmas, but I got so busy that it didn't happen. I was building a box to ship some neon up north the other weekend and kept going to build your box also.
Anyway.. on behalf of ALL the members..

Thanks mate,..its all VERY appreciated  ^^^ ^^^

Wow that must have been a surprise!
That is a great sign.
In one of your photos it even overshadows Big Dick.
Gavin is a tasteful artisan and skilled to.
