Hello, I am relatively new to the pinball community. I’ve had 2 Gottlieb 1980, The Amazing Spider-Man pinball machines for a few months now. After spending time replacing some playfield mechanics and doing some touch-ups I am now getting ready to completely repaint/restencil the entire cabinet. I already have the stencil and a paint spray gun at my disposal, just looking for some help identifying the original colors/paint type that was used for these games. Want it to come out looking as authentic as possible appreciate any help or advice with this as well!!

I usually like original on cabinets also
I never liked the Amazing Spider-Man cabinet, so I changed it up a bit
I had the the base color painted white and the webbing black
The silver always looks dirty to me, and nothing about Spider-Man says silver
I had the lines on the mask painted black instead of blue to make it more comic like
I moved the head over so it wasn't over the lock hole
I really like how it came out
