You may have mentioned it earlier and I missed the post, but I see you used the mantis style hole protectors. I always suggest those for my cleared pfs (because they mount from under and dont obstruct any art or ball flow). On a used pf I always suggest the clifys. Though be super careful when installing because you can bend and crease them so easy. Cliffy has made them insane thin to not mess with the ball travel. Of course this is all my opinion.
The job is looking better and better.
Just to share an experience:
A friend bought 2 reproduction cabs, and stored them at my studio. We were checking them out and they looked awesome, and the price was amazing. I think they were like 800 each? something that made me think, I sure the hell wont be restoring a smoked cab in the future. So the story goes, he sold one to another friend and neighbor, to use for his cactus canyon. There were so many little issues, like drill, dimpling, and blocks missing. Things like the hole for the shooter rod was round rather than triangle, the start button hole was not recessed. What he thought was going to be a straight forward job turned in to a nightmare that took quite a bit of cobbling, I think it was 40 hours, not including the decals.
Now that I wrote it, I dont see much to take from this, but I will leave it as a bump
The work is looking awesome!! Its too bed you are not closer to michigan, I know it would be super cool to show the AFM at the "pin at the zoo"
