Quoted from ZooDude:

I've been looking into making screens for the games I'm restoring myself as it doesn't seem like these are getting made, I bought a couple extra aprons for my games so I can mess around with it. Anyone else do one off screens for their restore? How does HEP do it?

I didn’t do a one off screen, but given that the apron graphics on the ones I have done were only two colors, I used a silhouette vinyl cutter to create the graphics, and apply them to freshly repainted aprons. It worked great.

cool, I'd love to see pics of the finished product. I'm not a big fan of vinyl stickers, they tend to look wrong to me, but I would be interested to see how yours came out. Thanks!

I have done two, one for my TZ, and the other for a Sorcerer.

My TZ apron can be found here: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/my-twilight-zone-restoration-in-the-twight-zone/page/2#post-5824663

Do you have the graphic for the apron?

What I have is resized for Bally Apron, which is different than Stern surprisingly.

I have two Bally Safaris and one needs an apron. I have the apron, but it's all rusty. Does anyone repair these and put on new decals? This is a picture from the one that is in good shape.

I bet if we went to Print-O-Stat here in York, they could scan and make a new decal. That place is 2 minutes from my house.

Some that are actually the correct color this time would be nice too. I'd buy at least one.

i have this bally apron. i'm not sure of what game i even got it from.
it looks like it fits 1968 thru 1974 ballys, but not sure if 1 player, 2 player, or 4 player versions, or if they all interchange?

7 1/2 height, just over 18 width. any guide or input on fitment?

I've been looking for a while since I don't care for the look like ass ones Classic Arcades puts out and has carte blanche to per Planetary for God knows why.

Found someone doing really nice vinyl overlays for these now. Next best thing to a reproduction apron.

What method of painting the apron did you employ?

Looks like a standard Monte Carlo/Odds & Evens/Joker apron. Unless there is something special about it I am missing?

It also fits space time (4 player) and time zone (2 player) so I believe it is standard.
