Quoted from killerrobots:

Thanks, I wanted to get as many lines out now as I could assuming it would be harder in a week or so but I am ready to hang it up.

Its all about the die back. And whatever grade of finish you want.

10 weeks from now you will see more die back. Always.

Chris usually applies more clear to flatten it out again after 8 to 10 weeks.

This is how you get a mirror finish.

Oddly in the long run it doesnt matter too much due to ball dimples, scrapes and scratches.

Yeah, that is the thing isn't it. When to stop.... A lot of the touch up I have been doing is in areas that are going to be fully hidden. I was just looking at my Taxi which I did before which wasn't nearly so flat and shiny and it looks perfect in play. It would look great on the game now but I keep seeing the tiny flaws.

Quoted from dr_nybble:

You can buy naphtha at Sherwin-Williams on Clyde Ave. I got a can from there.

how long ago was that? I recently went to a different Sherwin Williams in Kanata and they did not have it and they told me they cannot get it. Could be just that store/management?

Wow this thread is great.

I’m curious if anyone here has used a turbine sprayer to clear a playfield? I have a Fuji Mini Mite 3, but never tried it with 2-part. I think I need to order a smaller needle for it, but I might give it a shot and compare it to SprayMax.

Probably 2 years now. The Clyde Ave. store is more of a commercial outlet.

I will give them a call, if that fails, can one of you sell me a 1/4 gallon ? I can bring my own bottle and collect it. PM if you can. thanks

It might lay down too much paint, too quickly in order to get any control out of it.

Quoted from bigguybbr:

CMX prep test worked. Followed directions on the bottle, and followed up with a wipe with a tack rag right before beginning to spray.
Started out with a mist coat followed by 3 light coats. No fish eye detected. Plenty of planking that I can work on once it dries and filling in low spots.

Does that make Spring Break the most Spray 2K'd pin in the club? Out of curiosity, what game did you replace it with?

I just finished sanding mine down. Now it's ready to sit for a while to harden up.

I did not replace it - I had "too many games" (I dont have enough space)

I liked the simple gameplay of the game and the happy feel/music the game had.
And the translite is epic! (As you can see on my profile image)

I actually just ordered a NOS translight from Mayfair to replace the faded one I have. It's not in too bad of shape, but there is a small hole in it by the fat guys, and a crack in the middle.

I'm with you though. I like having some simple games to mix it up. I have a TMNT that gets frustrating at times, and it's nice to jump on my old stern Trident or Meteor for a change of pace between games.
