I have a Gottlieb Spirit I am restoring (PF is out now for professional touch-up and CC). I am not planning to do anything to the exterior of the cab. It is not perfect, but it's pretty nice and don't think restoring it is within my skillset or time availability. I was thinking about sanding the inside of the cabinet, but see conflicting info. on it.
My concern: The cabinet has a large spot of factory paint (intentional) and some type of number on the bottom, pretty much under the coin box area. I'm guess it's some type of QC sign-off or something. Should I sand that off?
I've also heard you can use carpet cleaner to clean the bottom. Should I sand the overspray off the sides, too?
Any thoughts on how to proceed?
