How do I safely remove the bottom panel on a Wedgehead? Do's and don'ts . Remove the back and slide in new wood sounds simple but I'm thinking I go do more bad than good by removing 44 year old glued wood that is built like a brick outhouse .

If it is solid, why change it?
I have hurd some cut the lip on the back, "less obvious" and slide it out.
Others cut all 4 lips, and install trim all around new board to secure.
I think as long as you cannot see it when done, whutever works for you.

I cut the rear lip & pulled it out. Worked pretty well.

Ok I think I like the cut the rear lip method if I go that route. The issue is some assclown replaced the front third of the bottom panel with an advertising sign at some point. If I'm going to put 30-40 hours into a rotisserie cabinet paint I'm at least going to have original looking wood on the bottom inside the under the coin box.

Here's the hard way to do it, cut away the side rail and slide in a new bottom panel.


To be honest, side lip needed replacing.

And a little touch up paint almost good as new

I sprayed webbing into the thinner on the hf touchup gun and it coagulated into a little rubber glop NFH

I always spray the webbing in first then cut it...

Yep, found that out the hard way, now I got rubber cemented to the sides of the bottle. Don't forget I'm NOT in Texas, I'm from the cold northeast, was in the 60's when I tried your trick. I will figure it out eventually.

Ooh, that's ugly!

#14 8 years ago

That looks awful. The rest of the paint job looks nice.

I would rather see NO webbing than to much. it just jumps out and slaps you in the face.
the only game that had super thick webbing was bank a ball, most pre 67 had really fine webbing. you could not see it well if you were standing a few feet away. that KoD you could see the webbing from 1000 ft away
