I second that question! What a difference. Looks incredible.

#32 4 years ago

Looks great. Would love to see a pic of the whole machine showing the lockdown bar and the side rails. What did you paint/clear them with?

#33 4 years ago

The trim is going to be installed in a couple of days. I painted all the trim then clear coated with auto DuPont Cromo clear 7600 was sprayed with a paint gun and put under a heat lamp. I will post pics of the cabinet next week. Still am working on putting playfield back together.

+3 Your STTNG is looking great.

#35 4 years ago

can't wait to play it. I read 30 days before you should play it ,to let the clear dry. It has ben 2 weeks already.

#36 4 years ago

Saving dead pins should be something every pinhead should aspire to do.

Good job man!

#37 4 years ago

Looks great! Makes me want one...

#38 4 years ago

looks like you pulled a 180 on this machine, glad someone brought this one back from the dead!!! looks great, and the powder coat blue on the trim looks amazing.

#39 4 years ago

Geezus tat, when did you have time to do this? Didn't you just finish your High Speed like last week?

#40 4 years ago

shock me still working on high speed. I have STTNG at my work so when it is slow or after work I have ben working on it. After I am done with High Speed and STTNG I will be doing my MB. looking to get a New P/F and clear coat it.

#41 4 years ago

Good luck with the restore. STTNG is my favorite game of all time. The one I picked up needed some work too, but with some help, she plays like a beauty now!

#42 4 years ago

That's really gorgeous, nice work. Any wide angle shots available of the cabinet with the blue trim installed? I cant envision it.

#43 4 years ago

Thanks for sharing, I'll probably be doing the same thing to mine.

#44 4 years ago

Looking great! That is a quick turn around on the game. My projects take me months and months...

#45 4 years ago

Fantastic! Beam me up!!
