Quoted from epeabs:

Happy Birthday Christopher. You deserve to put your feet up and relax. Cheers.

Thank you. We are working on it. Only a few days in the year can I get Marshall to spend some time with me. My birthday is always one of them. He is very regimented.

Yeah. That was actually top shelf in a round about way. There ended up being a husband and wife arguing in the parking lot over some car trouble. This puts the real in reality tv.

That is an awesome photo. I'm glad Marshall was able to be a part of it.

Happy Birthday! You guys still playing tennis at all?

#10060 2 years ago

I really appreciated your videos on cabinet prep and priming. I would love to see a video of base and clearcoat application sometime.

What excitements are we in for with SoF?

Will it be something different? love it when you do your refinements and choices.

I just wanted to post a few pictures and give a big thank you to Chris. My MM finally came today, the game arrived in perfect condition thanks to the standard HEP packing job. When I unwrapped the game I was blown away, it is absolutely beautiful! Even my wife who normally doesn’t even notice if I get a new game was walking by it and stopped in her tracks and was like “wow that’s pretty!”

Thanks again Chris, it was a awesome working with you! Now I have to figure out how to save up enough to have you do another one for me

Chris has probably discussed this before, but it would be great if he could make a YouTube video discussing how one person can properly prep, blanket, wrap and palette a game. His work is phenomenal.

Chris just did a series of 5 videos on that process, even building the pallet. Great content, HEP!

Time to prep these SOF cabinets.
I have been measuring,drilling holes and test fitting the backglass.
I had to open the upper recess up a bit to accommodate the CPR backglass. It was definitely thicker. I could fit a translite set up in there no problem. No such luck with the backglass. Good thing I checked first.

Some tight registration on that stencil! nicely done.

Quoted from Pin-Pilot:

Some tight registration on that stencil! nicely done.

Thank you. That was a nightmare!
The first stencil left more glue and mess behind than I have ever seen in my life. It came off a half an inch at a time. Took three hours with help to get it off then to clean all the glue off without ruining the paint work.
People rarely know what you go through sometimes with this stuff. I wish these stencils were made on something a bit more chemical resistance but you have to work with what you can get.

Oh, WOW. Did the stencils absorb some of the base paint making the stencil rubbery?

Quoted from Pin-Pilot:

They just pretty much melted. I see this often with these just rarely on such a grand scale. I know how to deal with it but it is a major time killer and could be avoided if there were a more robust option.
