I've looked through all 33 pages on this topic and love them all. The manufacturers should have originally offered these great color options. But, I guess the original thought was these would be in some dark bar or pub and they were there to make money for the owners. Whatever, I like it!
I liked Scott´s TBL in copper look.
Real copper would be too expensive due it has also to be clearcoated. So I decided to powdercoat.
To get a nice copper finish first all parts were sanded down, powdered in chrome and than powdered in candy copper lasur.
Some new parts were bought f.eks. the glass trim in metall, not like original plastic. Apron, Siderails, Hinges, CoinDoor ... so I can use the new black parts later on.
As a special I also coated the frame for the great TBL-topper with real bowling pin.
Hardest task was to powder the hinge of the coindoor because chrome and copper powder became to thick. So we sanded it again and got it powdered only in copper.
I like the result ....
