I have a Space Mission that's been in the family since the 70's. I've had it for years but I can't remember the last time it was assembled and played. I remember it worked fine but looked rough. I'd like to make it presentable and give it a good home in the man cave. I've read Vid's post (through about page 25) and thought I had an idea how to start cleaning the playfield. Vacuum, wipe, Simple Green, wipe, Novus 2, vacuum, wax. After removing the glass and inspecting it further I question my initial plan. I'd guess that nothing has ever been done to the field as far waxing. There are areas of bare wood that I'm not certain how to attack and would like some advice. After the initial cleaning then what? Wax or clear coat as I've read in some other posts? Clear coat then paint? Paint then wax? Paint by brush or air brush? Sounds like everyone has their own method so I'm looking for advice from the experts.
The cabinet plan includes new legs, seal the backglass and paint the cabinet with stencils.
