Quoted from goldenboy232:
What's your technique to get the black inserts repainted? I've hand painted them and they usually turn out well, but yours look almost perfect.
So, ya'll're going to think I'm insane, but..
I sent the PF off to Neo to have him restore it. Cost about 3x what the entire game can sell for, but for me, this game's a keeper. The PF was in pretty good shape, but had horrid planking up in the white clock area, and MANY sunken and loose inserts. Neo touched everything up, fixed a few art issues, added one thing (see the outlanes? Explanation below..) and cleared it. It's been mounted on display for the last three months as I let the clear set.
The outlanes - so all the owners before me kept moving the outlane posts, putting them in various places. So. Many. Holes that by the time *I* got the game, all the holes were stripped, they were so close together. I was torn about what to do, until I thought of my Twilight Zone . I told Neo to route out the holes, so I can put in one of the adjustable plates under the PF like WPC games have. This will (1) Allow me to somewhat adjust the outlane posts when/if needed, and (2) look like it's from factory that way. Before, no matter where the post was, you could see parts of the other holes that were created by previous owners.
