That looks incredible!

I sanded away the dust particles with 2000 and 3000 and started to polish with the compound.

Edit: After really looking at this playfield and feeling the inserts Im sure the edge you see is a illusion from under the surface, there is no bump but looks like a sharp edge from the waterslide decal

My advice: Don't zoom in!

#257 10 months ago

Well...you can have a few drinks, think/worry about it, then try more clear. Or... just consider it an insignificant and mysterious annoyance in what has been a pretty cool project, live with it, polish the hell out of it and move on.

#258 10 months ago

Yes!!!
If you've learned anything new you've already won. Perfection isn't the finish line. Learning is.

#259 10 months ago
Quoted from Billy16:

So this is basically where I’m at with it. I used Ultimate Compound on it last night. Did it again on lunch. And just spent the last hour polishing it with Meguiars Ultimate Polish and putting the rails on it.

Now I’ll tuck it away for the rest of the time to finish the cab and the wire harness.

Looks shiny as hell, very pretty to look at! Bet it plays fast as hell too, once you’ve got it all done!

I forgot to add this to this thread but my coindoor is now 100% complete, with red button caps and coin mechs

I like CPRs version of the out lane plastics but they don’t have enough red for me so I took a stab at making my own version but as a decal. I think they look pretty sweet.

#264 10 months ago

You have came a long way with this , some up’s and downs but that is just pinball.
I would be happy with how it has turned out so far..
Sometimes it is good to look back at the start as you have accomplished so much ...

I like it.

Looking good.

#267 10 months ago

Fantastic job. I like how you are actually restoring this and not just replacing everything (I'm guilty of replacement... because its easy).

Thanks
I’m cheating with the cab decals, I typically use stencils but I like this art better than the original

The next one I’ll probably just replace hahaha less stress.

As a kid my favorite book was Ender’s Game and I always think of the book when I look at this game because of the ship on the cover. I know the book was published in 85 but the artwork for this book looks older, very 70s. But there’s definitely some visual influence here.

I bring it up because I want to do some more art with the ship but it’s hard to find more art work of it.

There are a few more pics from John Harris his art work from Enders Game goes back a few decades before the 80s

I can't up vote this more than once? Bullshit.

Very similar indeed.

Been focused on the playfield lately and got away from the diode replacement on the switches. I was kind of going up the harness as I felt but decided to hold myself true to using the matrix as a checklist. Got 2 columns done amongst the random ones. Going to do a column a day until I finish. Then it’ll be time to finish the cab.

Question for anyone following: If a diode is bad on the light sockets what does that do to the board?

I also decided to populate what I could of the top side even though I told myself to leave it sit for 2 months

The lamp will either never light (diode failed open) or stay lit all the time and potentially cause other to ghost or light (diode failed closed)

That is looking GREAT with the black rubbers (makes be VERY happy that I bought the black rubber kit for my Blackout).

Thanks for a second I was worried I was using too much black. I don’t know if there is such thing.

#279 9 months ago

You did great work on the playfield. Lots of work but in the end it is super smooth. Nice work on this restore! You are a patient man! -following-

#280 9 months ago

Why is it that every single thing I try to do is a pain?....

Tried to paint the cabinet. Nope too humid and all the paint dried with this hazy white/grey cloud through out.

#281 9 months ago

Painting when it is humid is always a crap shoot, sometimes you get away with it, sometimes ya don't. Surely at least one semi-major step will go smoothly!

#282 9 months ago

I am super lucky here in Phoenix is almost always good painting weather. Humidity is almost non-existent except during the summer Monsoon season.

I used to live in Mesa I miss the dry heat. If the company I work for buys territory in the Southwest I’ll be the first to relocate.

Thanks man, just gotta watch the weather closer. So close to being finished. Just need to get this cab painted and then I’ll be able to start putting things back together.

That’s an intense bottom right there

If I recall, Williams built some like that. They got a deal on some paneling or there was a shortage and they had to get what they could.

Hahaha I’m not doing it. It’s taking every thing I have to just finish painting the inside of this cab. My next restoration I’m just paying someone to sand and paint. I’m over it.

#297 9 months ago

I was thinking painting the mortar might look way too busy--better to leave it how it is. Looking forward to seeing video of you flipping this!
