Description: Kiss is a classic and highly collectable pin made by Bally in 1979. The machine that we are offering for sale has many new parts installed (read below for individual details) and is working 100% OK without errors: general illumination, switched lamps, solenoids, flippers and all the mechanisms were revised before being re installed and they are working correctly. The playfield is a new reproduction made by Illinois Pinball (IPB) that has been installed recently and has not been played except to test the flippers, coils, switches and bulbs. These new playfields manufactured by IPB, silkscreened directly on wood like the originals, are very hard to find (and very expensive) and have been sold out for many years. All the mechanisms on the bottom side of the playfield (Bumpers, Kickers, Drop Target Assembly, and Flippers) were fully cleaned, polished, and refurbished before being installed on the new playfield. All the switches on the bottom side of the playfield were also cleaned and adjusted prior to being installed on the new playfield. Flippers were rebuilt: new E.O.S., new plungers, new links, new coil stops, new flipper switches on cabinet, new flipper bats, etc. The full set of plastics installed on the playfield is new. The set of clear plastic pieces is also new. A new set of four drop targets was installed in this machine. Custom drop target decals with faces of the band members was installed. The four bumper caps, bumper bodies, and bumper skirts are new. New decals were installed on both spinners. The four plastic rollover guides are new. An upgrade board to replace the, usually faulty, metal lamp grid plate for the 28 lights on the center of the playfield was installed. Lamps for the general and switched illumination are working 100% OK. All new bulbs were installed throughout the machine. A new set of rubbers was installed. The backglass is the original from 1979 and it is in excellent condition (probably a 9.5 into a scale from 0 to 10). The colors are vibrant and unfaded. There are a couple of very small scratches near the bottom area that were retouched, but they are not really noticeable from the front because they are in unlit areas. The backglass has no signs of bubbling, peeling, cracking, etc. The front coin door was fully overhauled (each and every piece on the front and the back was cleaned, polished, etc.) and a new stainless steel coin door skin/panel was installed. All of the metal parts inside and on the exterior of the lower cabinet and backbox were cleaned, polished, etc. The exterior of the lower cabinet and the backbox was fully repainted. Custom stencils were made matching the colors and artwork from the original. The interior of the backbox and the lower cabinet were repainted. They are extremely clean. The five glasses for the displays that show the scores/credits on the head are new old stock (very hard to find), so they have excellent brightness and no segments or digits missing or always "on" (like the day the machine rolled out of the Bally factory in 1979). The white, wood insert panel (where the lights for the head are located) is new and was installed recently. Metal paneling inside the backbox is new. All new ground braid was installed in the lower cabinet and backbox. A full new set of labels was installed in the backbox, lower cabinet, and playfield. Boards are in excellent condition. Sounds are clear. The tempered glass which covers the playfield is brand new. Front door and backbox have locks with the corresponding keys. Two coin mechs for quarters are included. They are working without problems. Legs were repainted and they look like new. Leg levelers are new. Original manual & schematics is included. Original advertising flyer/brochure is also included.
