Carnival Queen (Bingo) - Restoration

 
Well finally got my hands on a bingo machine. Being a 1950's machine, my aim was to keep it as original as possible. Will be mainly cleaning up the playfield and cabinet and getting it running. These machines are huge so had to be transported in 2 vehicles. Here are some picts of the giant and heavy headbox of the Carnival Queen Bingo. As I was on my own, I managed to get it out of the car without dropping it.
