I plan to paint the original steel satin black but still tossing up to use and finish off painting this one or start again knowing what bits to cut off the next one
QUOTE

Mate, I reckon you should use another colour rather than satin black, reason being is that it will blend too much with the cannon and not make a point of it.
Possible a matt red or whatever is in the line of sight on the table when playing?
I think you want it to pop as it looks really cool  ^^^
If it isn't broke, it isn't pinball.

*Time to get out the airbrush and play with a few i reckon.

Does anyone have the latest n greatest link to order more of these cannons at the best purchase n shipping prices ? the UK seller is still crazy $$.
The link will help other members who want to order one, or a spare .......

Painted up and fitted,I reckon the people selling these already painted up and modified on Pinside have made a mistake by cutting half the mounting base off ,these things are flimsy and will need all the help they can get to stay together

Great job. Best finish I have seen to date. You made a $10 toy look $100. Should send Stern mod designs.
I noticed you rewired the canon mechanism and also had the old cannon sticking where the screw holes are, the mat black paint looks good, did you remove canon assembly  to spray?
If you don't remember the 70s then you were on drugs.
If you remember playing pinball in the 70s you were having a good time.
If you don't remember anything,  then read about it here,

Nice work Gibo. Looks good. What about a timber finish on the wheel spokes? although the red does stand out well.  ^^^

Thanks for the kind words,
no didnt rewire the cannon just removed the whole top assembly , the coil needs to be removed first to get it off,i found it easier to make it fit on the bench first,yes some of the original artwork had stuck to the housing this only seems a problem on LE's and very early run machines

I wouldn't believe the ebay stats @ those prices. Something tells me they are just downright made up by the seller or have been manipulated somehow.

No one in the universe is that stupid the pay those prices for something worth $10 originally.
I bought a few spares after my first one from a different seller and $10 turned into $24.
They are sitting amongst all my pinball crap somewhere.

I saw something similar recently at Toyworld for under $20.
I am sure another ebay seller must have something very similar for very low numbers $ given more than one Chineese company would make them ?

Old thread but still worth it if you don't have one.

Anyone want a cheap cannon mod?

Took about 6 hours of searching but I found a seller. They take ages to send them and don't come with packaging but arrived for me.

Merry Christmas!
