    Thanks!

    Next challenge.

    The artwork cut into the metal instruction plates has worn or flaked off.

    I'm guessing they masked off the colors one at a time and used a very small squeegee to fill it with ink, then wiped off the excess?

    Anybody have any suggestions?

    Also, the lines on the text are very thin, (like fishing line) so hand painting is out.

    I utilized a fine point black marker on my Sega Basketball instruction plate, which is identical. I had to quickly wipe excess with Gemini CP100, but it worked okay. The wider red area is problematic. I hand-painted my Sega BB plate's red areas.

    Thanks for the tip. Markers are great but they have a purple hue.

    I found a couple videos online.

    Finger nail polish

    this is an amazing looking game. Where do you keep finding these awesome little gems?

    #209 10 months ago

    Great idea on the laminate repair.

    #210 10 months ago

    Awesome work so far ! Will be following !

    #211 10 months ago

    Not sure if you found the belt you were looking for but PRB Line was a company that supplied VCR, turntable and tape deck belts.

    http://www.a1parts.com/belts/prb_rubber_belts.htm

    I know it's way out of you way but R-VAC electronics who moved to Monrovia (I think) used to carry a good stock of many of the belts. Another local electronic store may also stock them.

    I may have utilized a fine point ink pen, as opposed to a traditional marker to restore the degraded black on my Sega Basketball stainless steel graphic. However, I'm fairly sure that I used a marker. In any event, the result averted the purple hue associated with many black markers. Below are "before" and "after" photos.

    Art stores sell paint in a pen. So, more permanent than marker and a super fine tip.

    #214 10 months ago

    I also used the fine point marker or pen to restore the black letters, numerals and rectangles surrounding the numerals as depicted below. Those areas were mildly degraded. The red areas were problematic. I improved the red areas after this photo was taken. However, I am more satisfied with the graphic restoration of the black areas.

    A.C. Moore and Michael's has the paint pens. I favor them for that reason. Also, they have a greater opacity. However, occasionally they explode with paint (at least for me). Pushing the point releases the paint so they require a steady hand.

    #216 10 months ago

    Thanks for the suggestions, i have a few fine point paint markers. We'll see how it goes.

    #217 10 months ago

    Started painting the bowl.

    White base painted.

    Stencils applied for the red and blue swirls.

    #226 10 months ago

    Yep.

    Quoted from cad-kid:

    #227 10 months ago

    Still to do:

    Touchup and clear coat cabinet.
    Paint "JUMBO" stencil then clear coat bowl.
    Get tape player working. Finding the right belt has been a challenge.
    Digitize audio.
    Get new string and apply new flags.
    Design and print labels. (test, credits, etc.)
    Paint letters and details on metal.
    Paint, repair and clear coat metal ladder.
    Paint beach ball.
    Fix or replace switch on bottom of bowl.
    Reassemble the mechanisms.
    Replace button on handle.
    Install new dome.
    Install SEGA badges.
    Install powder coated legs and bolts.

    Put it all back together!!

    Cross fingers and hope the damn thing works.

    Few people have both the mechanical and artistic skill to singularly complete such a project.

    #229 10 months ago

    Swirly things painted. JUMBO letters are next.

    IMG_3085 (resized).JPG

    #230 10 months ago

    JUMBO letters done. Slightly transparent like original. Placement is better this time around though. The original decal didn't follow the curve of the outer rim.

    Nice work on the pan. But what's going on with the crazing on the right?

    #232 10 months ago
    Quoted from MikeO:

    It's to the left of the black too

    Quoted from MikeO:

    From previous 'before' pictures looks like those are openings in the pan, I'm guessing that's just paint over masking tape or something.

    #234 10 months ago

    It's tape to cover the holes. Will come right off.

    I was hesitant to ask knowing there was an answer but had to anyway.

    It's all good. It does look messed up in the pictures. And believe me, i've made PLENTY of mistakes

    Ladder repaired, sand blasted and repainted. Will bend back into original position later.

    Metal instruction plates painted. Will lightly sand surface after it dries which will also bring back the original grain.

    Took a boat load of sanding but it's looking pretty nice.

    Looking great....definitely a talent I wish I had....I try to be meticulous in restoring but sometimes just run out of patience.
