Quoted from ChrisPINk25:

Just novus and elbow grease, or did you use a buffing tool?

I use this attachment for my drill. You can get these at automotive paint stores

Looking for a nicer Sys11 coin door if anyone has one available, LMK.

Coindoor located, refinished and installed

How do you do the refinish on the coin door?

#211 5 months ago
Quoted from Daditude:

How do you do the refinish on the coin door?

Completely disassemble, clean harness, door, and frame. Use a scotch brite pad to scuff door and frame, and spray satin black epoxy paint. I also put new orange plastic caps over the 25 cents buttons. Those are always beyond hope.

Is there a specific brand of satin black epoxy paint you use?

#213 5 months ago

VHT, available at auto parts stores. It is the perfect satin black.

Glad to see you found the coin door

Man this game looks awesome! Where's the best place to buy capacitors from?

#226 5 months ago

I really enjoy threads like this and realize how bad I am at restos. LOL

Fantastic work, that thing looks amazing!

#228 5 months ago

Looks great, congratulations! How well does the light shine through the repainted topper?

#229 5 months ago

I hope to have time this weekend to fire it up. I will take pics when I do.

#230 5 months ago

... did A&E not renew your contract? Can’t leave me hanging! Lol

#231 4 months ago

I have been hammered with work last couple weeks, leaving no time to finish this up.
That should change tomorrow.

I had to read it twice!

#233 4 months ago

Haha. Yeah, could have phrased that a little better.

#234 4 months ago

Better to be hammered with work than hammered at work though.

#235 4 months ago

Fired up with very few issues..couple switches, wrong plunger spring, few bad bulbs, not bad.
