I figured I would post a couple of photos of my Simpsons Pinball party after I installed the decals I got from Pete at retro refurbs. The quality of the decals was nice and as you can see it makes a huge difference. Just thought I would post these up in case any one was thinking of refinishing there cabinet.

No.

Wow, those look a lot more colorful than the originals. Isn't the background "collage" of characters supposed to have a more subdued halftone look?

Where are the clouds that are supposed to be on the head?

I hate to pick but why are the Pinball Party decals so bright?

Yes. The original graphics emphasizes the main characters by making the secondary characters appear to be part of the background. These decals don't do that.

So the decals arent 100 percent matches. But if you have a game with a trashed cabinet it better than nothing.

They're there, they just fade off lower than the originals. And the shape is a little different, but still so much better than a flaking hand painted cabinet.

The only problem I had with them was the right side of the head. There isnt a whole lot of cut off on the decals so there isnt much play to move the artwork. Did this side the same as all the other 100 heads I have decaled and the artwork was printed slightly crooked and not centered very well. Im still happy with the overall result though.

I will check this out. It may have been that when they were trimmed with the plotter the right hand side wasn't aligned perfectly, as I've not seen the issue pop up before.

Looks like you did a fantasic job but if you need a replacement for those heads, just contact me.
