Whirlwind pinball by Williams. Here is great game that needed a lot of love. It was living in a detached garage and suffered from the dreaded humidity/condensation bug. So a little rust, some white stuff and everything working kinda funky caused this game to come see us. We started with a request to "just fix the bad displays" and ended up doing the whole shop-out. The invoice notes below tell most of the story:
