I like it!!! I'm thinking to paint up my STAR TREK one of these days. Can I copy you?

Quoted from timab2000:

Thanks for clarifying all that
So with that kind of thinking..... since I use rustoleum rattle cans, which probably were not the correct color that the factory use, but close enough for me. Or a vinyl stencil, probably not what the factory used. Or that I used 47 bulbs and not 44s. Or that I am using a playfield protector made in Germany so the my non factory playfield won't get screwed up cause the factory does not make them anymore. Same with all the playfield plastics aftermarket, why cause the factory does not make them anymore.
Do you catch where I am drifting......I guess there are no 100% restored games, cause I do not think it can be done they way the did it back in the day according to your strict standards


repair or renovate (a building, work of art, vehicle, etc.) so as to return it to its original condition.
"the building has been lovingly restored"
synonyms: repair, fix, mend, refurbish, recondition, rehabilitate, rebuild, reconstruct, remodel, overhaul, redevelop, renovate; More

I never thought of it before, that if you use different colors then it isn't considered "restored." In my mind, you have restored the game, since it is NEW PAINT, albeit may not be the same color as original. Similarly, I don't think you need to use NOS plastics, posts, solenoids, etc... to be considered "RESTORED." Anyway, call it what you want, I think it looks great and you did a fantastic job. In fact, the color overlays that you weren't all that happy about, I like the 3D look!
