Got a Bally KISS in bad shape. Was in a house fire. I am doing Cabnet stencils, Playfield overlay, I got a new back glass, new plastics, New targets, new drop targets, have a lot of work to get it working. Game doesn’t turn of at all. I have New reflecter board, New Altec led board. Still need main board.

I painted the white and did the first step orange with the stencils. I plan to clear coat it with auto clear then do the 2nd step (black) of the stencils. Pulling the stencil up did pull some white up. I will have to go back and sand and touch white up. That’s why I decided to clear before doing the black.

Beautiful work! Nice to see another classic rescued!


#25 3 years ago

Looks great! It'll look awesome lined up next to the Stern Kiss.

Did you use a Classic Arcades overlay for the PF? I was considering one for mine, until I noticed the difference in fonts they used in the matrix section, which kind of disappointed me. There's not really any other options at this time until CPR gets the Kiss playfield project out of the Boutique Zone and into production. I was able to get some help with mine and reproduce the original font using a rub-on transfer method before clear-coating.

Here's an original PF above and a Classic Arcades overlay below detailing the font differences.

Yes it is a overlay from classic arcade. I have a playfield in order from CPR also. But I am happy with the overlay. I did not notice the font.
