Quoted from Mathazar:

- Magic Eraser
- Naphtha
- Mean Green

Mean Green maybe for cabinets, but very much not on playfields!
Many years back, an old time collector mentioned Magic Eraser
and mechanics (smooth, not gritty) hand cleaner. Liked it and stayed
with it..
Way back I picked up a really nice EM B.J. before I knew of its low production.
Should have kept it, but will be able to make a decent one from the two
I now have..

Quoted from EM-PINMAN:

Just bought a Bally Black Jack EM today so I am in the club!
Now for a question:
Anyone repaint their EM cabinet with rattle cans and if so what brand and colors did you choose? Mine will need a cabinet repaint.... one day.

Sort of - my BJ is an SS, not an EM, but the cabinet colors/paint types should be the same. I'm almost done with my SS cabinet repair and repaint (lower cabinet complete, working on the backbox as Colorado weather permits). I used:

- Kilz Original White Primer
- Rust-oleum 2x Ultra Cover Deep Blue - Gloss
- Rust-oleum 2x Ultra Cover Apple Red - Gloss
- Rust-oleum 2x Ultra Cover White - Gloss
- Rust-oleum 2x Ultra Cover Black - Gloss (for the neck)

I started lower cabinet re-assembly this week......
