1993 Williams, Bram Stoker's Dracula
I purchased this pinball machine from a vendor at the end of the 2009 Texas Pinball Festival. It was mostly functional mechanically but suffered from severe cosmetic issues. As is typical for this game, the cabinet had a lot of fading in the red sections (it was mostly pink!) and was really dirty. License stickers indicated it was onroute somewhere in Louisiana. The playfield was in really nice shape - no wear, just dirty. Plastics were ok and the ramps had significant ball tracks, but not broken. All in all, a nice restore candidate.
BSD won the Best 1990's Pinball award at the 2010 Texas Pinball Festival!!
Shopping it out...
Here is a listing of some of the tasks undertaken as part of the rebuild of Dracula. This was the first time I actually stripped out every single component of the cabinet in order to do an extensive cab restore. I took tons of pictures and some video of the tear down in order to help with the reassembly.
All of this work was done in late 2009 - early 2010
As you can see, the red on my cabinet was faded very badly. I knew I wouldn't be happy with this game without a full cabinet restore. Fortunately, the cab was in good shape structurally... just needed some cleaning and paint work.
