    Evel Knievel restore has started. Plans are to restore and clear coat playfield. Restore and clear cabinet. All new switches and targets, new drop targets. Rebuild all coils. May do a overlay but am going to try touch up first and then clear coat. Playfield is not to bad. Got all the Mylar up all ready.

    Sanded playfield down. Clear coated the playfield. Applied the decal. Couple inserts are off a little. Will need to clear it then do some touch ups.

    Couldn't help but notice the "ER" that is on Evel's belt buckle on the original playfield. Could it be the initials of the previous owner?

    Not sure but good find. I see the overlay has EK. The old playfield was touched up all over with Mylar over it.

    Little bright pic of it. Would of liked a CPR playfield but not many out there. I like the whites to be bright white.

    Did you clear over the original cabinet?

    Any particular cleanup/prep you did before spraying?

    I have an EK to do, with a new CPR. One day.

    cabinet was pretty nice. I cleaned it bonded small marks. I masked it off and sprayed the white. I used auto clear and cleared it to lock in the colors. I will mask off red and blues and spray them next. then I will clear again. Wish I could find a CPR playfield. I have a NOS new playfield that I plan to clear. I just like the whites better on the CPR.

    #34 5 months ago

    I have played EK.
    It always amazes me that when you see a playfield like this ( in the restoration threads) that it seems so much more colorful.
    Perhaps it is because when you are playing it you are more focused on the ball than the background.

    That is some really fine work and it will be an excellent example when it is finished.

    #35 5 months ago

    What red did you use for your cabinet? I don't know if it's just fade or what, but my red looks mixed with an orange or pink or something.it just looks like a goofy color. Also, I'm envious of the Playfield.

    #36 5 months ago

    Did you put any speckle color on the cab? I've heard some people say it should be silver speckle and others say gold speckle.

    My EK cab was repainted (poorly) by the previous owner and I want to redo it with pinball pimp stencils but I wasn't sure what color speckle to use or maybe just not speckle it at all.

    There is no speckle on mine. I think only the EM Evel Knievel had silver speckles. Mine was poorly touched up. I just touched it up better and cleared it.

    Got playfield together. Have a few switch adjustments to do. Waiting on a new plastic set that I found. All new light sockets and ground wire.waiting on one spinner also.
