I picked i up a Gottlieb Volley that the cabinet was painted like an American flag. Pretty neat but I wanted to see if the original art was underneath. I would like to keep it as original as possible. So I’m in the process of using Motsenbocker’s Latex Lifter and it’s doing its job.
So along the way some of the art is pretty good though it’s clear that the wood has planked, etc. but it is the original. But some of it is pretty rough, especially the sides of the head which are heavily planked and all the latex blue paint is in the cracks. Unfortunately the front of the cabinet had the same issue.
Part of me would like to keep the original but another part of says to just do a repaint. From what you see in these pictures, is this acceptable to leave?
