Does anyone have a paint color code or something I can use for Funhouse? I need to repaint (And redecal) the backbox as somebody did black paint all around the perimeter. I've read that Krylon True Blue works.

Any help is appreciated!

I haven't done it myself, but someone else used this:

Sherwin Williams color accents(satin) interior latex #SW1791.

Yes, Krylon True Blue, in the can not spray, is pretty close I think.

Or you could buy paint from (probably get a small amount then get it matched locally):

Thanks Robert. I'll look into that. It just needs to be close so hopefully this will work out ok.

Shrub_Light; thanks. I found that one and it looks like they're right. I just wanted to verify.

Just got my order in from pinball universe for my Whirlwind. The paint did not come close at all. I got a grey blue and not the Whirlwind blue. I was very upset since they claimed it was a perfect color match. I would have been ok with just ball park close but this wasnt even in the pinball universe.

I have to pick up the decals for FH soon - so dumb question...

What exactly do we do with the paint if the decals cover the cab and both sides and front? Is it for the top and back and inside the cabinet?

For the blue that is not covered with a decal.

One suggestion, if you have a decal, take it to a paint store and have them try to match it.

If they can, then the paint will match the decal, while probably not perfectly factory, it is the match you really want...thus it is real life perfect.

Yes and edges. I'm going to see if this matches enough for me do I can paint the black painted edges on mine. The side art isn't too bad but the one side is missing a large chip out of the middle.

I'm about to do my first one- so better to ask the questions than make a mistake.

When you have them match the color, do you apply it with a foam brush or something? I am assuming you don't use a brush. Not looking forward to this at all, but my backbox is trashed and I am not going through all this work to put a refurbished pf back in a semi ugly cabinet.

I used a foam brush (Cheap ones from HF) and they worked real well for me doing cabinet touch ups.
