A Data East 1987 Pinball.

A few things I want to do to my Laser War:

1. Repair and refinish coin door.

2. Repaint and make new decals for spinners.

3. Repaint and make new decal for apron.

4. Repair back box wiring.

5. Refinish and repaint cabinet


Laser War was the second pinball that was placed in my dad's video store.  It's cool because it's the first pinball the have digital stereo sound and had 3 ball multi-ball, yet still Cyclone is my favorite.  Laser war is hard to find since it was not on of the most popular pinball's made, so when I was able to get one I jumped on the chance.
