Street Fighter-2 pinball, produced by Gottlieb in 1993.
I believe this was the first pinball produced that was based off a popular video game.
I’ve done 2 complete restoration of this same title in the past. You can see before & after photos in the Photo Gallery of the SF-2 listed as Sold.
I had cabinet decal sets custom made, and they are on file. As soon as I source a new printer they will be listed under Parts & Supplies – Decals.
The asking price is based on the pin being refurbished to “Collectors Quality” condition.
The photos in the gallery at present, show the pin in it’s current condition.
Major work that will be done on this unit as follows:
Cabinet will be stripped, and sanded down to wood. All body repairs will be completed, then unit will be primed, then block sanded with 1000 grit.
The base coat will then be applied. Once dry, a new set of top quality decals will be laid down, with cut-outs around the legs, and edges, which will prevent future decal rippling.
All the metal will be sandblasted, and powder coated; I’m thinking micro metallic gloss black , but if your ordering the pin, choose your own color.
The playfield will be stripped bare, topside and underside. The old faded, and scratched Mylar coating will be removed, at which point there are a few small paint touch ups to do. Once completed, it will receive four coats of 2-part automotive clear.
All the electronics will be updated, and many old connectors, and capacitors changed, so the unit is reliable.
All playfield metal parts, such as posts, will be polished in a tumbler with a special medium, for over 1 week; end result, they will look new.
All mechanical components will be disassembled, cleaned, and rebuilt to original specifications.
A new upper mini playfield will be installed.
The machine will have a new LED dot matrix player score display installed, making the high voltage generation section obsolete, greatly improving reliability.
All #47 & #555 bulbs will be changed to color matching 2-SMD frosted, high intensity Comet brand. All back box bulbs will usually be cool AKA natural white. Likewise, most all playfield General Illumination (GI) will also be Cool White. Unlike Warm White, which has a red hue, cool white is pure white, and will illuminate the playfield much better
Basically, everything you read about under “The Restoration Process”, which is broken into 3 parts (Board Sets-Playfield-Cabinet) will be done to this pin.
Notable Features: Flippers (5, one is below playfield, one rotates 360 degrees). Three level playfield. Two ramps, each with an elevating entrance to allow ball access to a target underneath. Multiball (2-ball and 3-ball).
Toys: Smashable car in the lower playfield.
Production: 5,550 units
