    I'm going to be putting new decals on just the backbox of my Whitewater. I don't have a stencil for the safety information on the rear side of the backbox. I don't think I like the idea of using the stickers. Is there another solution? Should I just leave the back alone? Should I paint over it? Should I mask off just the yellow text and paint the rest of the backbox hoping that the paint will match very well?

    How do people deal with this issue?

    Thanks.

    I screened mine. If look for someone in your area with a silkscreen to do it properly.

    We have a stencil available for the backbox.

    How difficult are the stencils to work with? Will I end up pulling hundreds of tiny pieces off the device after I paint? I assume they are one use and then thrown away?

    If you haven't figured out a solution already, I ordered one of the screens from Matt -- you're welcome to borrow it as long as you clean it up properly

    I ended up using the stencil but if I do another game the screen would be much easier and would provide improved results (I assume). Have you tried it yet?

    Nope, haven't even received it yet -- not sure if it has arrived or not, I've been out of town for a while.

    It will probably be a while until I get a chance to use it, but when I do it will be for the rebuilt WH2O cabinet.

    I'll let you know when I do.. looks pretty straightforward from the video.
