Firepower is my wife's favorite pin so it isn't going anywhere soon. I thought as long as it's going to stay around, it should look its best.
The playfield paint was touched up and then clear coated. All of the cupped inserts were filled with clear coat and sanded level. I used stencils from pinball pimp to paint the cabinet. They worked well and came with detailed instructions. Here are some before and after shots.

Thanks everyone. Leveling out those cupped inserts made a huge difference. I liked it before, but it's a lot more fun now.

Hi GoodToBeBad,

Could you please provide paint manufacturer and colors?

Thank you for your time,

Nice job!

I used the art files from www.firepowerpinball.com and had vinyl decals printed.

They came out pretty good and are a lot easier to fit.

i was thinking of doing that myself. did you have to re-size anything?

OP, nice job!

I think I re-sized the head dimensions because the height is wrong on the site - i seem to remember it's down as the same dimension as the width.

Overall I made the decal slightly larger and then trimmed it back equidistant from the edges.

Make sure you order all the decals from the same supplier at the same time to ensure consistent colours.

Rustoleum spray cans. I think I used apple red and sunshine yellow - both in gloss.

Your cabinet looks really nice. I'm about to spray some touch up on the front, I have made stencils and and wanted to confirm best rattle can paint and colors to use. Are the colors Rustoleum Gloss Sun Yellow 249092 and Gloss Apple Red 249124 ? Thanks

#14 9 years ago

Yes. I believe those are the colors I used. However, since I primed and painted the whole cabinet, I wasn't too concerned with matching the colors exactly. Test them before you use them.
