Fascinating! I have a spare Sinbad pin I acquired for my Sinbad restore and have the same sort of retheme plan in mind for it.
I also respect your deliberate choice of a machine that probably needed a lot more work than it would ever get.
I hope you don't plan on stripping that back glass though! Seems like a nice piece and I'm sure you can find a buyer!
But I am curious what your plans will be for the back glass? My best idea is to combine some decals with laser cut vinyl, but haven't really thought it through yet.
