So happy with the powder on this that i had to share. Its called copper hammer. Pretty happy with the playfield restore too. And never realized just how faded the old cabinet was. Didn't realize the guys shirt was that colorful.

Quoted from Atomicboy:

What did you use at the corners of the cab?

Body armor. Lighter steel raps all the corners and also under the legs and is then powdered yellow. Can't take credit for anything except selecting the colors. Work was done by a restorer. The body armor and additional steel trim on the head are his ideas.

No. I found one very cheap as it had a few issues. I fixed the board issues and issues under the playfield to get it playing 100% then stripped and sent the playfield to HSA and a local talent did the cabinet and powder and reassembly.
