    Thanks for posting this. Just watched the whole thing even though I am nowhere near the point of putting on new decals yet. But now I have a much better understanding of what all is involved in doing that and will definitely refer back to this if I ever attempt it myself.

    Great video. Total side question, he points out the 3 holes on the cabinet but says he doesn't know why. Does anyone know why some bally/williams cabs have 3 holes for the legs?

    Great job, but when you come across the top on the coin door decal, you should always work your way out to the edge and into the coin door area by continuing to go side to side. Don't try to push the air out going downward from the top to the bottom. That's when you're more apt to get that bubble crease like you had.

    Awesome job though as decaling can be a real pain in the you know what. So this is a great extended tutorial on how to total redo over a cabinet. Thumbs way up and loved it!

    TZ had it because they thought the game would become too heavy to be supported with only 2 screws.
    In the end it wasn't a problem so the games got regular legs with 2 holes, but the cabinet was prepared for 3..
