Quoted from mrm_4:

How’s the project coming along?

Not much done of late just finishing off a few things before I start on the playfield. Repinned the playfield loom, painting the rails and apron and cleaning sockets, lamps, screws etc. Will post some pics when the playfield starts to come together.

Started on the playfield and came up to a couple issues straight up. The decals on the drop target sit a bit lower than the originals so you can't see all of the font. I glued a 2mm thick plastic strip to each of the 3 bank drop targets and now they sit nicely. I haven't done the 6 bank yet, might glue the 2mm piece to the drop target itself. The other one was the clear has clogged up the star insert, this is only my second clear coated pf a the first did not have this issue. A quick search showed it is a common problem that is easily fixed. I used emery board to sand off the clear, it took a bit but now the star inserts move freely.

Other stufff done includes repinning the loom and the apron/shooter has been painted ready for a new decal. The wood rails are half done, have used a heat gun to get the vinyl off but there is a lot of residue still on the wood. Once these are painted and installed I can get onto repopulating the playfield proper.

Found myself reading other people’s resto threads this morning. Decided to put the phone down and start on the loom. Good progress for an hours work.

Lot of other stuff going on at the moment but got to power the playfield up the other night. I have a few issues that need to be sorted, mainly the crappy lamp sockets, but getting close. There is always one part at the end you need, and for me it is a pop bumper spoon!
