I have a 62 Gottlieb preview that I am restoring and can not decide if I should go back to the boring original cabinet paint or up date it with some silhouette's and color. I will not be selling the pin and thus any mod's would be for my enjoyment. However this is going to be my best restoration to date and everything is straight factory so fare. I will be getting a resto backglass. I have done other cabinet restorations with modern cabinet design and they look good just not sure what the right call is for this one. My Williams soccer came out nice.

I vote for the original paint scheme.

Sorry- but I strongly prefer original. I would honestly not even look at a game that had a "custom" cabinet- unless it was seriously amazing hand done airbrush artistry you could hang on a wall, OMG amazing- and even then- I would prefer original. Don't do it!

You asked!

Looking great! Games look complete when they are in the original colors and scheme. I know the cabinet art is hardly "art" but it just looks right!

Excellent work
