1980 Williams Firepower Light Restoration

This came in from a client who’s Bally Strikes and Spares I repaired and restored late last year. This game had been down for some time, so it needed a little love, but was a very nice overall example of this seminal Williams title.

For this machine, I installed a new Rottendog MPU/Driver board in it, adjusted about 4-5 switches, replaced a switch diode on one switch that the diode had fallen off, repaired the left flipper which was DOA when the game was turned on, re-rubbered the entire machine with new white rubbers, touched up a wear spot near the top of the playfield in the blacks, cleaned and polished plastics and playfield with Novus 1 and Novus 2, waxed the playfield with Carnuba Gold Class paste wax, installed LED lamps into the playfield GI and added two mylar sling protectors where I noticed some wear was starting to occur.

Firepower, ready for play!

Firepower, ready for play!

Firepower is back playing strong and such a fun machine!
