Ok gang, I have a latex paintover, need to repaint back to factory...

Can anybody advise what the colors might be? Blue grey and Red?

Will have Pimp add this to his stencil collection...

I did a "Moulin Rouge" years ago with rattle cans. No blue, grey, or red! Purple and fuchsia. Some games have a white frame around the backglass, while others are purple. Don't forget the stencil on the front which is an identical design to "Lucky Strike"/"Bowl A Strike".

Have you tried removing the latext paint with Goof-Off or another latex remover to see the original?

I'm starting on one of these now and the plan is to sell if anyone is looking. Oddly enough mine was painted over as well. Will be looking into colors this weekend.

I found some photos of a "Moulin Rouge" I repainted years ago with regular rattle cans. This one had a purple border around the backglass. Some are white. I've had both versions.

I'm not convinced about the pink being original but I could be wrong. I've just seen so many examples of reds fading to a wide variety of light red/pink/orange. Ditto for the purple. I've always suspected that these cabs were closer to a common red and blue on white since those were common cab colors and are colors featured prominently elsewhere on the game. That said, that's a really nice MR pictured above.

Bumping this post for future Moulin Rouge restorers:

Using the unfaded paint under the rails/legs I found the two colors with the best match were Pantone 227 and 267.

Nice match
