Quoted from beelzeboob:

Even the stencil jobs from the factory weren't perfect. They certainly didn't spend a lot of time trying to make sure everything was perfect.

Boy, is that an understatement! Misregistration between colors, fuzzy edges where the stencil wasn't butted up right against the cabinet, and perhaps my favorite, double images where the stencil was sprayed, accidentally moved a quarter inch or so, and sprayed again. Still, it's the little eccentricities like these that give an old pinball cabinet its character.

BTW Cosmo, your coindoor paintjob.....fantastic! I can only hope the spatter on mine comes out as well.

Quoted from Plumonium:

Hey Cosmo,
I'm wondering, the red/orange on the cab looks way more red that any Pïnbot that I'm seen before. Is it the picture that makes it look red instead of orange of it is red indeed? Again, all Pinbot I've seen before are orange and yellow and I don't think it is because they were faded.
Thanks!

Also possible that the paint color may have varied slightly from batch to batch. Also, there are at least two versions of the cabinet artwork, one has the zigzaggy lines not touching the upside down "V" at the bottom of the front, another has them all connected; it's possible that the cabs came from different sources using different paint.
