Hey Guys, Gals,
Last Spring I acquired a Gottlieb Subway that played but needed work. Cosmetic as well as Playfield work. The game played OK, however the cabinet was poorly pained over with some weird design and lots of rust and stuff everywhere. So here I am documenting what I have done so far. This will be a ongoing documentation thread. so here we go..
here is the cabinet taken apart. as you can see, this paint job is really awful.
the back of the cabinet has some bad warping as you can see. but nothing that couldn't be fixed.
stripped and bondo time.. starting to look better.
got the back fixed up too..
primed and painted with base coat.
My buddy Wade lent me his stencils.. cabinet is now done.
Started on the bottom board.. thought I would sand it, paint it and clear coat it just for that extra special touch..
still need to do lots more work, have new coin door and coin entrance plate, all the bits and pieces need to get polished and put back, then I need to start taking apart the score reels and cleaning them, as well as new light sockets in the head. etc.. stay tuned..
