Just wanted to share my Booz Barometer restoration with everyone.
I did not like the original maroon color, so I had the cabinet powder coated a deep blue, inside and out.
Next, I had the 'bent rod' and handle ring nickel plated to a brilliant chrome-like shine.
The coin entry plate was in very good condition, so I just had that polished to a brilliant shine.
Next, my wife restored the wooden base to like new.
Finally, after almost 11 hours of photoshopping the original (damaged) art, I had good artwork to take to the printer for new decals. Yes, 11 hours!!!
I decided that I didn't like the original art for the '5¢', 'start' and 'warning/how to play', so I changed those slightly and had them made in white, which really stands out on the blue background.
The picture does no justice to the actual item. It looks amazing!!
Sorry the pic is blurred.
