Yo! Wanted to get this in for my own and hopefully someone else’s reference or ideas!!
This is a thread for mostly my full cabinet Resto on my WhirlWind, I will only need to shop my PF as it has been previously PF swapped and everything already! I bought this pin a couple (few?) years ago now and just now getting to the cabinet as it was my full plan at purchase time. Previous owner smokedog did the PF swap. I bought the cab art a couple years ago with some help from another pinsider helping attain them. They are custom done, and it isn’t the full cab art, I will paint the entire cab and apply the “art only” when completed. This is my second attempt at this type of refurb, I did my Fish Tales a 1.5 year ago or so.
The cab has good bones, the head is ROUGH! Cab is tight, just needs all the sand/full/repeat/sand/prime/paint work. Head needs ALOT of fibreglass resin, fill, etc. If you follow along, cool, I hope you get something out of this.
I have a speaker upgrade already in hand for this, artwork, new lockbar. What I would like is a new coin door as this ones beat up pretty bad, maybe it’ll just be time of elbow grease and a new paint job, I don’t know yet. If I can acquire one for a good enough price, maybe I’ll refurb this and sell at a later date. Also. I need the blue WW paint. I have a good previous paint code one from an awesome pinsider who did his Resto a few years backed. Here’s a few before pics.
It’s about time. LETS GET IT ON
