Re: Bally Gold Award

She just needs a clean, maybe a paint job. Not decided, might sell her and get something new. What is the going rate please guys. If it’s cheap she’s staying.

Re: Bally Gold Award

Hey guys, so I pulled out the mech, cleaned all the switches and I noticed they were all touching apart from one, so I tightened them together and it works. 1p is going on 3 plays is that correct? Thanks for all the advice. Now time to paint. Any good easy ways to remove the front face?
