    I'll be repainting a Gottlieb Flipper. Original
    Paint was sanded and i can't tell if cabinet has silver spatter or webbing. Any help much appreciated.

    I would say that's just silver spatter. Definitely not webbing.

    Odin, your machine looks much different than ipdb. Maybe you have a repaint, or an early production machine.

    Mine's holding the paint better, that's all. It's packed up right now so these are the only pics I can find at the moment. I don't recall any spatter. If it's there it was very lite.

    Thanks guys i'll go with light silver spatter and if i don't like it ill just paint the antique white over it .

    I just checked mine and it's definitely silver spatter but it is lightly done. Checked under a leg too.
    I'd say the silver paint was thinned because some of the spatter dots look to be slightly transparent, not a deep silver

    Thanks Walt I was leaning that way. I knew it wasn't webbing . Now to get a light silver spatter I'll experiment on cardboard first. Webbing I got. I use Pinhead52 and Boilerman's methods. That'll be cake when i do Silver webbing on my Flipper Cowboy.

    I looked at my cabinet real closely yesterday and some of the white may have been painted over. But where it wasn't was the lightest of spatter. And the paint spots were tiny.

    Silver splatter confirmed once I removed the side rails .

    Hi Delta Queen,

    Did you paint your cabinet yet? If so, what did you use for the silver spatter? I just repainted a machine that looked as though it didn't have any spatter (mine was totally repainted over), turns out that it has silver spatter, I have to do the spatter paint after the colors were put down

    I used a rustoleum hammered effect and flicked it off a paint brush

    THX, I ended up using a Rustoleum grey, I worked well enough. Probably close to the original on this cabinet, It's a CC, not a GTB.
