I was finally able to find/pick up a full size GORF this weekend.
It has been a long time coming. I could never find one in my budget.
It is a tad ruff around the edges and needs some work. I look forward
to the challenge of rebuilding it so I can reap the rewards. :D

For what it's worth I have one that was as you describe. I did a cap kit on the monitor. Also had to clean the contacts on the boards to get it to boot. Took it completely apart and blew out the case with air tank and cleaned all the connections to various places, put in proper bulbs,clean the the joystick contacts and all was well.
You'll really enjoy it! Worth the time and love :cool:

That's my favorite coin-op of all time! I made myself a Gorf video game costume for Halloween 4 years in a row. I'd love to see some pics!

I hope to own one of these someday too...

I'm still working on it right now. I got a lot done but alot left to go. I'm waiting for the bottom half of the Cab to be rebuilt. It had major water damage and was not worth trying to repair! pressed board + H20 = :(
