Quoted from Mikala:

Thank you for your comments. When I brought this machine home, my wife had a fit, not because I bought another machine, but because it smelled bad and as I mentioned before, it was in really sad shape. I actually cleaned the cabinet and PF some before I started taking pictures. My wife's only concerns were how it is going to look in our basement. The work and time I put into my machines is for myself and not resale. When I was finally done, my wife could not believe it was the same machine. I received the same reaction from my friends who helped me carry it into the house.
My wife was so pleased with how this turned out, that she said I could buy another machine anytime I want. It's a good thing, 'cause I already did. I am picking up my Aztec next month.
Just remember all, "Happy Wife, Happy Life"!

I was doing a pinside search on Super-Flite and ran across this thread (nice job). I know it's old but I just picked up a fairly decent Super-Flite today and want to do something like this with mine. I have already got all but three of the inserts out. they came out super easy, 4 of them were already out and laying around in the playfield, luckly they're all there and in good shape, all seem to be nice and level just a lil dirty just like the rest of the machine is. I am not sure what gel glue is but will do a search on it unless you have some tips for me on regluing the inserts and best way to clean them and PF without damaging it. I hope mine cleans up as well as yours did. I am having to glue the center plastic cloud piece back together too, the rest of the plastics looks good.
