Quoted from Skins:

As with a lot of older games, the plywood veneer in some places has planked, or split. I skimmed the head sides with bondo completely, sanded smooth and filled again with glazing filler and sanded to a baby butt smooth finish with 220. Even with all that, when the epoxy hi-build primer hit the grain of the wood, the solvents in the primer opened up the grain again, though nowhere near as severe as when I started. Here is the grain opened up after priming:

So one more round of glaze filling. You can see the red glaze filling in the wood grain depressions.

After, it will be sanded and one final shot of primer applied.

Takin' your time and doin' it right. This will be a thing of beauty when you're finished.

Great work thus far. Eagerly awaiting some paint on this bad boy.

P.S. Those side rails are SWEET!!! (I grew up with this game in my basement, so seeing this game get the royal treatment gives me the good feels!)

All colors applied.

Wow. I'll join the chorus of pinsiders in congratulating you on your masterfully painted cabinet. Love it.

Can't wait to see those side-rails put on, too. I gotta admit, I really like that brushed metal look. ...but I look forward to having my mind changed when you put the black powder-coating on.

Quoted from Skins:

Light board filled and primed; ready for color then clear.


This is going to be the nicest FG on the planet. It's already starting to look pretty darn mean with all that black armor. Amazing restore, Skins.

Quoted from Skins:

Thanks for the suggestions and input. I think I may break from the norm again on this and go away from the era specific finned posts that only come in (from what I have found) red and blue. I'm thinking of going with a modern star post. They are not an exact match in height but very close. I'm not sure on the diameter of the base though I think it may be the same. I have to dig around and see if I have a finned post laying around to compare. If I go star posts, I can go black post with red rubbers. That is the looks I'm going for. The contrast to the predominantly red playfield and the fact they will blend in with the plastics which are predominantly black backgrounds is what I'm looking for.

I like the modern black thought! That's gonna look nice and mean, like the rest of your machine!

Wouldn't look like a screen print without a little misregistration. Still lookin' killer. Can't wait to see clear coat.

Go, Skins, Go!

Quoted from Skins:

Can't get intricate designs with powder and didn't want to apply vinyl with out clear top coat which can't be done with powder/decals.

Thank you.
So I cleared it. I'm going to see what kind of touch ups I can do then reclear over those. Bummer it wasn't perfect the first go around. It looks sweet other than the few blemishes bugging me.

Any chance of some close-ups on those apron designs?

Attended Pinball at the Zoo today and saw this GORGEOUS Flash Gordon:

...thought it might provide some inspiration to keep up the good fight on yours.
