I am repainting the coin door on my system 80b Gottlieb, Gold wings. It has a pebbled (not hammered) appearance. Does anyone know what it is called? Walmart doesn't carry it. Haven't gone to Lowes or HD yet.

I'm a noob to the whole pinball repair thing but could it be texture coat? If it is, I would use SEM Texture Coating. I do autobody work and if I have to use a spray can, SEM is the only brand I'll use. It lays down like a gun finish and lasts forever.

Thanks. Not sure about SEM's texture coating but if it is similar to Rustoleum's then it is not the correct one. What I need is more bumpy. But it seems they sell this at OReillys so I will check it out.

Here is what I use for reference SC...
Brian Kelly does a great job with this door.

Thanks Nimble. The problem is the paint texture on the Gottlieb is not the same as on the Williams. The Gottlieb texture kind of reminds me of very rough sand paper which has been painted over.

Now I see, kind of a stone finish with gloss over it.
Krylon makes two different textures for that style finish, you might have to do a final gloss black coat over the hammered to get the same results from the GW door.

I would play with the two (maybe combined?) to get the desired results. (I think the hammered "Rust Tough" sprayed from a distance would be the best choice.)
Good luck SC!

Yeah, kinda looks like painted Granite. Will have to check out the Wrinkle. Hammered is not right.

Wrinkled works too...
I didn't find too many "good" examples of a new door off of the GW, so I took a stab at it.
Lots of experimenting is always best with these specific finishes.
Most of the doors I saw were almost flat black from years of wear.
Well, good luck again SC, I'm sure you'll club it out of the park...

Krylon also makes a "Fusion" textured paint but I have never tried it.

This place has a couple of different styles as well. (On the left hand side menu.)

They had another wrinkle finish made by VHT called "Wrinkle Plus"...

Couldn't find any wrinkled finish so not sure if it is the right stuff.
I ended up using Valspar stone finish and then covered it with BBQ black. It isn't perfect as it is a little too rough but it looks decent.

Saw the coin door on this thread and it seems the Wrinkled is the correct finish. Will have to go to the Harley store and see if they sell it.
