    "R2D2 Decals for STAR WARS PINBALL" (DATA EAST). Restoration and Modding project
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Introduction: I´m Mikonos and I´m 19 year old in arcade and pinball hobby. I´m the webmaster of a fansite called "Zona Arcade. Construye, Restaura y Decora tu Máquina Arcade y Pinball" (14 years old) too. I have always had same nickname. I´m a fan and a huge collector of arcade and pinball cabinets, and other items related. Some year ago I realized that I like so much to restore and customized artwork, it is my main entertainment. I think I´m good at working with design programs. You can check my skills in this pinside thread in which I´m compiling my artworks about pinballs.

    I´m not a shop and I´m not working in a printshop! Sorry for it! I´m only a fan. I learned all about design and print materials by myself, I´m always looking for volunteers for testing of my new mods and ideas, I look for new restoration challenges and more. If you have a good idea about a mod for your pinball, tell me and I will try to make it a reality. I work designing and restoring for free because it is fun for me!

    In thought in solutions for your problems with R2D2:

    - Yellowed body and crack signs:

    1) R2D2 body: Previous wrap R2D2 with die cut white vinyl ( it for wrap cars too).

    2) Apply repair putty and paint in white

    Example of set to wrap R2D2:

    "R2D2 Decals - Star Wars Pinball"(DATA EAST) printed in vinyl and precut and wrap white vinyl for "Marco" user

    "R2D2 Decals - Star Wars Pinball"(DATA EAST) printed in vinyl and precut and wrap vinyl for R2D2 boby (photo 1).

    - Broken R2D2 body or miss pieces :

    1) To scan and reproduce R2D2 body with a 3D printer machine.

    2) To model rounded body with a hot gun tool. Legs are no possible.

    3) to create a negative with fiberglass and fill.
