Here are a couple of mine
Quoted from pinmister:
I really like the color Gold on that GOT. It looks more like a true Gold instead of that mustard Gold that was put on MMR. The stickers on the coin door make it look too busy-I would remove and show off that beautiful powdered coin door.
Also you did an awesome job on the conversion-the art is stellar.
Thank you. I agree my GoT stickers didn't come out like I hoped.
Quoted from SUPERBEE:
How much more durable is powder coat compared to a good paint job with clear ?
There really is no comparison in durability. Powder has to be sand blasted off and wont chip with simple wedding rings and keys. You can drop a lockdown bar on cement and its probably ok. All stern games are powder coated (that black dull finish is powder). A properly painted game will probably be ok in a home use environment though.
Quoted from Zitt:
Whateves. I stand by my work; regardless of how clueless you are.
And, everyone... if you are in the market for awesome powdercoating... contact that yahoo... and then nitpick the crap our of his work. Make sure it's defect free... clean, and "like glass". And demand he redo it - if it's isn't perfect. You know... since he's a professional and all.
I'd say pinchroma's words were a little uncalled for here. However, he is not clueless. If you somehow were able to get him to powder coat something for you, it would most definitely be 'defect free... clean, and "like glass"' and be perfect. Guaranteed. His work is top notch.
Quoted from Butterflygirl24:
I don't have any of my games powder coated. I have done all mine with automotive paint and clear. I have had them all to several shows and they hold up just fine.
Do you use a dual component clear?
I've had metal strips cut and powder coated and also gotten paint that color matches and painted the wood directly.
Quoted from MrBellMan:
I'm more afraid of being overcharged by someone who hasn't done pinball parts and wants an arm & leg! I figured if we (pinside) had a regular go-to for this, I would feel more comfortable. That's all. I'll check around.
My idea of course it to send a stock Stern trim kit in it's black form. Can powder coaters spray over that or does it have to be taken down to bare metal?
Has to be sandblasted to metal. Some powder shops do that as well. Mine does.
Coin door, legs and shooter housing look darker due to overcast lighting but it's the same as the lockdown and rails. Very nice multi stage glossy purple. So shiny it shows fingerprints like chrome.
I'll ask. It's a multi stage powder so it's not one color but a formula. My Metallica also has that color
Quoted from MustangPaul:
Did you hook those up to game power? Do they go all the way around the edge?
On this one we ran just the front lit up and wired to separate lower supplies. Normally I run them off game power. The led strips are dimmed significantly as full strip is too bright for this application. Dimmed it looks great.
