This one was a little challenging, my customer is out of state and BG was rotten. Found a local Pinsider gracious enough to let me scan his original.
After some extrapolation, this is my result along with a couple before images.

Damn, only took me 14 days to do this Grand Prix. I really should attend to my day job!

Also I've come up with a way to more closely reproduce the mirror on originals. I found some "mirror" vinyl and just cut it with the Cameo then apply it on the areas where the printed metallic effect has been printed. Can't do super fine details but for the big areas it's a vast improvement.
It's pretty good, obviously it is NOT an actual mirror but compared to the printing of the metallic look, I think it is pretty good.
Attached are some images from a Wild Fyre. It's hard to tell in the photos but in person the areas where the vinyl as been applied looks great.
Just my opinion and of course I'm partial!

#386 26 days ago

Just found this thread. If you are in the DC/Annapolis/Baltimore metro area and have unusable backglasses I am probably interested. I am not looking for the example you want to put into your machine, I am looking for your old backglass once you put your nice repro/replacement in. Will probably be going to Allentown as well.

Could pay more for a decent DE Simpsons, Spiderman, Paragon.

Likely interested in anything that doesn't require shipping.

I would be willing to sell my original Motordome BG for $175 plus actual shipping. See images of the couple small areas that were touched up. Last glass I sent was around $40, but that also included insurance. I use this guide for shipping: http://bgresto.com/?page_id=777
I've re-created a translite that I can put in the game I'm selling so could help out someone that does not have one.
PM if your interested. I know this is HIGHLY sought after.

Still have the original IJ, which I would do $100 shipped in the US.

MB, RFM I could do $75 each shipped in the US.

The others are gone. Folks have been thrilled with them, so I am guessing anyone else would be as well. Thanks!
