WP_20140430_003.jpgI must have a thing for Segas. I'm now the proud owner of a Twister. Plans are to clean it up (it's very dirty), LED it, and play the living snot out of it. It needs a new lock down bar as someone thought it would be a good idea to paint it with regular spray paint, new rubbers, new post sleeves, and a new shooter rod (nothing wrong with the current, just personal choice). There is also some piss poor touch up in the button area on the cab so some cab protectors are in order.

So far, I've painted the legs, cleaned (not waxed yet) the playfield, and vacuumed the interior out. What do you guys think of the leg color and should I continue it on the lock down bar and rails or should I stop where I'm out since the color is so different? The legs were going to get replaced anyway so I thought I'd try something with some color to it as most of the machine is black. Problem I had was, the yellow, blue, and orange on the cabinet aren't really yellow, blue and orange but rather a pastel yellow, peach, and teal. I chose teal because I actually found a perfect match in a rattle can of Rustoleum Painter's Touch (satin).

So should I continue, or is the legs enough? WP_20140430_001.jpg

I wouldn't do the side rails. I'm 50/50 on the lockdown bar. Do you have a pic with the black lockdown bar on. The legs look blue in the pic not teal.
