I took advantage of the nice weather first of the week down here in Tampa and finally finished the cabinet paint on a Bobby Orr POWER PLAY. It was a lot of extra work and precision taping since the whole cabinet wasn't white like most from this era. They decided to paint red on inside and on back which actually really looks cool. I am dropping in a NOS Bally playfield which has been mirror cleared with my CPR plastics set and new everything on top. This machine should make any Blackhawks fan drool!

Sweet! Taping? Did you not use a stencil?

NO to taping stencils art! The entire cabinet was sanded, primed and then painted the correct white color. I had to then tape off White in order to spray RED inside and on back. I've been a vector artist for 30 years and design art for Classic Playfield Reproductions. I design my own stencil art so curves, registration, etc. are PERFECT and then plotted on painters mask... not the crap stencils the other guys are selling on the internet! Those can be a nightmare!

WOW! AWESOME JOB! A travesty that this wasn't a Bruins Pin. But a great tribute to the Greatest hockey player to ever lace up a pair of skates. Yes...Robert Gordon Orr. NOT Wayne Gretzky (for those who will throw his name out after reading this). Orr revolutionized the game. But again, awesome job on that cabinet PP. Good luck the rest of the way.

That's damn sweet!

I've got BOPP with a beater of a cabinet. Playfield has a bit of wear, but the plastics are good and the backglass is near perfect. Would you consider making another set of stencils for a Blackhawks fan?

Nice job OP I did one a few years ago but I didn't paint the bottom of the cab.

Everything always has a price but I am not looking to sell it. I can't imagine getting back what I put into it. I went stupid with this machine. Few things I did....

If you look in the backbox, I had a local sheet metal place redo the back with stainless steel.
All screws, nuts, bolts washer were replaced with stainless steel ones
The playfield is a NOS one that was cleared by Ron Kuzman
All the boards are Alltek boards
All the plastics (pop bumpers, post, targets are new
All metal parts tumbled and polished (even all the pieces on the underside of the playfield).
I had all of the labels/instruction cards in the backbox and under the playfield reproduced and printed out on cardstock. Also reproduced all the stickers that were on all of the hardware (i.e. drop target, flippers etc assemblies) replaced.

There is more but you can get the idea!!! The game is basically a new 35 year old game.

My POWER PLAY will be FOR SALE in about a month when it's finished. I will post it here on Pinside when it's ready. It won't be cheap but you will have some bragging rights!

Very nice. I agree w/the Orr/Gretzky thing. Orr was great. I love my Power Play. Wanted one since I was 12 in 78. Got a good condition survivor in the late 90s.

Did you happen to get one of the CPR repo playfields for your machine?

If you dont mind me asking, what type of paint did you use on your cabinets?
