Have finally decided to build another one of my custom Bally Kiss machines. This will be machine #4. Will be starting off with a totally ruined playfield that will get an overlay, a Lost World cabinet, and a Kiss back box. l will try to chronicle the progress with pictures and description as much as possible. How long is this going to take? Who knows!
Lets start off the blank playfield. Here it was yesterday and is now sanded today. I used a random orbital sander and it really knocked it out. Started with 40 grit, then 80, next 120, and finally 200.
My plan is to clear coat 2 layers to make sure all is smooth with the inserts, do the white undercoat trim, clear another layer, then the overlay, and then clear coat again an additional 3 layers.
Enjoy the ride!
As you can see, this playfield is beyond any touch-up, but it's straight and it's solid. An excellent candidate for an overlay
