Yeah... it's even worse in person. Imagine puke being able to throw up all over it. Multiply it be at least 10, and that's what this looks like.
It was cheap, complete, and mostly working so that's why I got it.
Quoted from dudah:
I'm restoring mine currently. I can give you the paint codes. Maybe making stencils down the line.
I've been reading your posts on it, It's coming along nicely! As far as paint codes I've decided not to use the original colors because underneath the spattered vomit on ours the factory finish is just too destroyed to attempt any effort to preserve, or touch it up. The webbing in the original finish never looks right when reapplied, and in my opinion just makes the machine stick out like a sore thumb.
After all it's only original once, and at this point with ours originality is out the window.
Been playing around with colors a bit..

Might have BGResto make a new glass for it with these (or other) colors instead.
But all the cosmetics are all down the road after I get it working 100%.
Yesterday I got both target reel motors working, freed up the score motor, re soldered a bunch of bad/broken connections, cleaned and adjusted the stepper unit, cleaned all of the targets, and the artwork inside the cabinet, fixed and re sanded down the stock, and polished and re-blued the action and barrel of the gun. (It was a very productive day).
I still have to finish the stock with tru-oil, remount it, fix the score reels resetting upon a new game start, and just play it a bit to work out the bugs.
After all that's done I'll take everything back out to strip the cabinet bare and then repaint/reassemble.
Thanks for the offer dudah!
