It was a common shot in the game, to enter that lifeguard tower, and each time the ball ran the distance it just pushed the dirt along and in to the game.
So no point working on the top (and testing) while this was there.
|filthy filthy filthy trough!|
|I ended up cleaned lots of that caked on blackness as well.|
|I wish I took a better picture, but ummm, eww.|
of course it cleaned up quite nicely:
Then back in to the machine! Played a test game and it was all good.
I decided to be eager and start the mad puzzle of tearing down the playfield. 10 minutes in? STUCK. Dammit. I'm not strong enough for this one screw. Booooo.
Will have to enlist help another time.
