Finally getting to this project Kings and Queens. It ended up in a Subway/Crosstown cabinet at some point in it's life. The previous owner had died and his wife mentioned he always wanted to restore it. He must have started to strip the cabinet as evidenced in the photos and then I guess life got in the way, it was under a sheet deep in the basement with a lot of dust. The best story is that I went to the house to buy a 9' shuffleboard table (after my wife said ENOUGH pinball machines I want a shuffleboard!!) and she asked if I was interested in a Mr Do machine. I mentioned pinball and she said there was one down there but wasn't sure of the name. When I lifted the sheet my heart skipped a beat. $250 bucks later it was in my truck.
It's my first cabinet repaint with webbing. Think it came out pretty good.
Have to thank the numerous posts on repaints, webbing and stencils that helped in making numerous decisions. Ended up using heirloom white Rustoleum, Montana webbing and Montana 94 paints for the colors. Also used the Pinball Pimp stencils and was generally happy with the process. They were a bit more sticky than I thought they would be and it peeled some webbing off, but it was probably a good thing. Stencils were easy to use.
My biggest question is what did the original checkerboard stencil look like at the factory? Having to connect all those squares together and allow for the spray must have been interesting.
Well, on to the rest of the machine....
