I'm restoring my wife's childhood Swing-Along pinball. It's not a very collectable machine so I'm doing it mainly for sentimental reasons (Plus, it was released 1 month before I was born, so we have something in common, we're both antiques!).
I plan to refinish the cabinet and restore it back to the original color scheme / design.
Question 1: Would you spray the inside of the cabinet? Why or why not?
Question 2: The metal side rails are nailed on. I'd really like to remove them prior to painting and would consider getting them re-plated. Any tips on how to get the nails out without damaging the rails?
I'm sure I'll have a lot more questions as I go forward.
Thanks in advance!
