I'm cleaning up the light panel in a Funhouse restore. I'm shooting for the brand new look so I think the white needs to be painted. Any recommendations on paint? Will any semi gloss in a spray can do? I'm also looking for something to seal the bare wood on the back of the light panel and new playfield.

Lastly, I have a nice scan of the warning label, what sort of paper stock would you print it on?

I decided to try a can of gloss white I had laying around. First coat is a huge improvement. I just realized I spent the morning cleaning and sanding a spare light panel I had instead of the one for Funhouse. Oops. I think it's from a T2. At least I will be able to see how it looks in gloss white before doing the actual one. I have a can of polycrylic I'm gonna try on the back. I had it on hand and I have a test subject so I'm gonna go for it.

I've used painters touch gloss white with great results.

Never have sprayed a clear coat on the back of the light panel. I Just sand it clean and call it done

I'm debating on what to do with the back. The T2 panel is plywood, i think a light coat of clear would be nice. The Funhouse panel is fiberboard, I'm not sure how the clear would stick to that.

Zinsser primer & filler on the fiber. Couple of coats with same light sanding and then paint.
