Restored a 1976 Gottlieb Surf Champ electro-mechanical pinball machine with the help of my daughter Taylor. She then made this video to show it off with exciting pinball action and put it to the music of Beach Boy's Surfin' Safari. I used to have fun playing this game as a kid in Wildwood, NJ. Restoration included completely stripping the playfield, removed swirl marks with magic eraser and alcohol, then sprayed 8 coats of clear acrylic lacquer as a finish, to keep it close to original. Finished up with Nanowax for a slick playfield. Preserved the backglass with 3 coats of Krylon Triple Thick.
