Quoted from zahner:

I had a very nice one and then bought a beautiful one from my friend Steve Charland’s family after he sadly passed away. Given it was Steve’s game and one of my favorite pins, I’ll never sell it.

Awesome. Didn’t know Steve personally (unfortunately), but did have mutual acquaintances, and certainly knew his reputation and stellar collection. Sad day when he left the planet.

Quoted from zahner:

That aside, your restoration is looking awesome and has given me a few ideas re powder coating.
If you need any info, pictures, or anything else, let me know. Seems like you are way beyond needing anything, but the offer stands.

Appreciate that, and very cool. Going in a different direction with this one, and one to make it look very “comic book”. I’ll definitely keep you in mind if I need anything. Thanks for the offer.

I just stumbled upon this thread. I am in the process of restoring a GTB Spider-Man as well (I purchased it as a rough non-working project from a trailer park in San Leandro - guy told me it used to be routed at a country club in Castro Valley). When I opened the machine up at home, I found out that Steve Charland serviced the machine and updated all the necessary items (grounds, capacitor replacement, etc.) since he left little white hanging notes on each of the things that were updated - pretty cool.

I cut and routed a new bottom and front panel for the machine since it had some water damage and rotted away.

Sanded, bondo'd the entire cabinet, primed with Kilz2, sprayed with Valspar signature paint in "Metropolis" grey.
Misted a bit of metallic paint around the cabinet, sprayed the "webbing" with Montana Marble effect. Used Banner red and Satin Ink for the blue.

Stencils were made using my Silhouette Cameo 3 (cut in sections since machine is unable to cut wide material). If you notice, the letters on the cabinet match the amazing spider-man on the backglass instead of using the existing font. Also, I used the spidey head from the backbox - in my opinion looks better than what was on the cabinet.

Let me know if you need anything.

That looks freaking awesome!! In the middle of moving, so I haven’t had much time to work on any pins at all. I’ll shoot you a PM now though so I can get this thing moving.

Thanks for sharing. Your cabinet looks spectacular.
