Ok, so i decided to document my restoration of a kiss machine. First off, it isnt mine. Im doing some side work for an amusement company and they asked me to do this. I have brought in 3 kiss machines, and a repro cleared playfield, so the plan is to do one high end restoration with the new playfield and i have pretty much as much freedom as i want to buy as many parts as i want, the next one will be a clean up, shop, get working, and make sure it will work for a long time. The third one is in pieces, the whole topside is torn down and everything is hanging underneath, the top of the playfield has white paint on it like they were going to paint it for an overlay (the sling area would need paint with the overlay they have) but without samding it first. So the plan on that one is pretty much put an overlay on it and get it running. At some point. I just started the full restore so that is what i will document first, and hopefully have my questions answered. I didnt take a bunch of pre pics of the cab or the playfield, i wasnt planning on documenting it, just got to work. The cab was in decent shape, but the art was faded and yellowed, so i fully stripped the cab, every part in it, sanded it down to bare wood, fixed any gouges or scratches with gold bondo or wood filler and sanded more, inside and out. What pics i have to follow. Stay tuned for a lot of pics and updates.
