Quoted from BJM-Maxx:

How will you re-attach the lip you removed when cutting out the floor?

I make an "L" shaped channel out of 3/4" plywood. Once I Bondo the outside, it will look original. Might have time to do that today.

I assume gluing and screwing to keep that "L" nicely secured.

Thanks for posting these. Someday I’d like to try a cab restore

#64 2 days ago

Glad to help.
Decal time. Cut to edge of print and lay on cabinet side. Keep consistent overhang (mine was 3/4"), check for design center, and tape in place with painters tape (only). Once decal isin right spot, I cut 3 notches to cabinet edge, and secure half the decal.

Peel back the half of the decal not taped down

Cut the backing out of the way

Attach a straight edge to end of decal. This keeps the corners from flopping over and ruining your day.

Keep a nice curl as you lay that thing down. Light squeegee as you go. Work from middle out. Slowly.

Same deal on other half of decal.

Nice, easy to understand explanation.

Thx for letting me know. I hope it helps others to try. It's definitely not easy, but it is doable.
Going to let this set tonight, putting some legs on tomorrow

loving the straight edge tip!

Installing some cabinet parts. New side rails from Pinball Life, shooter assy, flipper buttons, etc

Always use Stern style cabinet protectors. Cut and remove portion of decal about 1/8" to 1/4"
outside of the protector. This will make sure there is zero chance of wrinkled decals.

Restoration decals from Treasure Cove are a nice touch.

New side rails

What's the install like for those?

Quoted from mof:

Easy. 2 sided tape.
Getting the old ones off, a bit tougher. Heat gun and pry them off.

Looks great so far. While your at it, you may want to consider installing a beefier leg bracket.

$15 and 30 minutes of your time well spent.
Original caps are pushing 30 years old, and way past their expected service life.

Can I ask what "Bondo" do you use? I know there are many different types.

My issue(s) are some Bondo is so tough, it sets up quickly and many times it's so much harder than the wood, then it's difficult to get Bondo & wood smooth (inconstant materials).

Any help / advise would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks
Kerry

It takes time to get a feel for whatever product you are using.
I have found that if you put less hardener, it is easier to work with. And it clogs up sandpaper way less.
Use a random orbit sander, start 80 grit, 120, primer
This is what I use now, because I can sand in 15 minutes. Love that.

Thanks for sharing... Maybe I should experiment with using less hardener too.

I was going to say the same. After restoring a few pins, these are a must.

Not really. The length of thread is the same, and that is what is important. I'm not looking for structural help on the cabinet, I have that taken care of.
