Quoted from Pinball-Metal:

Here is white t-molding, and a little red

Very cool!

Quoted from MustangPaul:

Hey that looks great. If your interested here's a couple of pictures of a Pinsiders Ironman with my amber Leg light-ups on. I have other colors available also.

Paul, I see one of my keychains on his IM...whose is it?

#453 3 years ago

Very cool. A bit much on some games, but the green fits SS perfect.

Man, I was originally really down on the idea of white for GB, but the more I see them with it the more it makes sense to me. Really makes the cabinet colors pop! LOVE the laser cut logo on the hinges and the pure white shooter rod. Also really loving how you swapped out the flipper buttons with black to get an alternating black and white thing going on with the cup holders. I'll be shamelessly ripping you off for sure if I ever pick one up killer job mang!

Nah ... Just a few I've been meaning to do for a while and haven't got around to get.

Austin Powers being one of them. It's Fiona's machine so I'll do it up for her birthday. Cause that's how I roll...

These all look geeat. Is removing/replacing the the side rails difficult or risky? I have never tried, but would like to. Is there a vids guide ?

Piece of cake, remove the screws, use a heat gun on low setting, heat the rail a bit and gently pry up one end a little bit at a time heating and working your way down taking care not to bend the rail. Just take your time.

#464 3 years ago

That GB with the white head trim makes a huge difference IMHO. Brings it all together and looks fantastic.

#465 3 years ago
Quoted from john32:

Does anyone have a powder coated World cup 94. I have to replace a damaged rail and was thinking why not powder coat it before I put it on..

Thanks Paul,
I can do that. Then there must be an adhesive strip to reapply ?

Looks good but on the coin door painting the driver is on the wrong side.

Yeah.... I have noticed that from the start.... but what could I do since the door painting was a "surprise gift" from the restorer???

Rumor has it, they start left driving in Bazil next week, beginning with the trucks as test, week after other vehicles

I've been leaving the tape off and drilling two holes into the rail like stern side rails and using little black screws. Way easier to deal with and attaches very securely.

Wait , So Stern machines don't use adhesive tape but instead use screws ?
My plan is to remove the rails from a new GB and install new lollipop style rails .

Correct!

Good to know , sounds easier .

Ok that it really cool, especially the paint on the legs. Very nicely done, I've saved these images in case I find a local artist that can do this for me one day to my Scared Stiff pin.

Do the weld spots coming through bother you guys? I was expecting them to come out perfect like a factory machine would. I'm told that it's totally normal.
It bothers me to the point that I probably wouldn't do it again.

Yeah, that happens sometimes. Even though my stuff is soft media blasted.

I guess you could fill the holes with weld and file it back to smooth it out.

I've not seen that before. Surely there is more to that. Maybe your powder person does something different. Experts chime in here please.

Eastwood sells some stuff that's high temp bondo for stuff that's going to be power coated.

The only way to rid your lockdown bar of the weld is to grind it off and sand prior to powder...this will only work if the weld is raised and not recessed.

#491 3 years ago

Oh.....def not an expert here..just have dealt w this issue before

Quoted from Nevus:

I was told that it depends on the color & if it's a 2 step or 3 step process. Different colors, different amount of steps I guess. All have them to some degree I was told.
I paid a lot, wouldn't go back to the original because overall it looks great. But it does bug me & it will keep me from doing other machines without the expectation of it having the weld marks.

Quoted from TigerLaw:

Some really nice work in this thread.

Indeed. And to be fair, some dubious color choices as well.

#494 3 years ago

So I have found a company local to me and they have many different options on their website for different powders. Can I get some opinions on the best powder to use or what everyone else uses. I have never had any metal powder coated before and want to make sure I make the correct selections. I was planning to purchase side rails and hinges for my Metallica from pinball metals. Do I need to purchase the raw metal if I am going to have them immediately powder coated?

Any insight with this would be great.

Thank you!

The TGIC Polyester is the way to go. You don't need excellent corrosion protection or chemical/solvent resistance.

Seaweed on the legs would work on Fish Tales too. My kitchen chairs already have similar decoration.

Mine is similar to the other one posted, except maybe a little darker to match the purple on the cabinet.

This was another machine with god awful rusty legs so I had them done to match.
