Quoted from yellowghost:

What brand of paint is that? Or matched?

I used this, deep blue. It’s a pretty good match to the original color.

I was referring to the yellow. It looks real close.

Yeah the yellow is a custom color I made with automotive paint. The match is pretty good and blended out nicely.

#104 56 days ago

The playfield did have some colors that I just couldn’t match though, the neons. I had some success matching the neon green when it was screened over the yellow but when it was screened over the blue I couldn’t match it. The blue and pink were issues as well. So I took the playfield to Neo, he has done some Radical playfields and can match the neon colors. So I am having him touch up the neon colors for me.

#105 56 days ago

Neo is awesome! I wish he would do one of mine...

#106 51 days ago

The back and inside of the cabinet got clear coated today.

Got the playfield back from Neo, he also shot some clear on it to protect the work he did as I move forward the restoration. I still have a lot left to do but it was really great to get some help with colors I was struggling with. Neo did some nice work, I will be sanding the clear before I resume touching up but I thought I’d take a few pictures before I do.

Nice. Which colors did he match?

#109 47 days ago

He did the green, light blue, purple and pink.

I have painted plenty of cabinets but this is the first one I have put decals on. I did have Bangerjay help because he has done decals before.

Did repairs on the backbox today.

Reinforced this area with a screw. Sunk the screw and dished out around it.

The corner was damaged, I grind that down before I use a fiberglass reinforced filler to repair.

After filler and block sanding.

#115 29 days ago

All areas in need got filler and block sanded. Then I primed the backbox.

Cabinet parts and wiring cleaned, polished and starting to re-assemble. Stapled in new ground braid . Put in the new style reinforcing leg brackets.

I made a stencil for the backbox caution text. Weather permitting I will use this stencil tomorrow.

#119 14 days ago

Here is what the original looks like, My recreation is very close to original. I will underline the “always” and “only” like the original has, I just need to cut it into the stencil.

'I' in HINGED is missing.

#122 13 days ago

Nice catch! It’s there I just didn’t weed it out before I took that picture.

Maybe the OP is unhinged.

Third line down. You need a - after "for."

Thank you! It came out pretty decent. If I missed anything else it’s too late now.

I clear coated the backbox this weekend.

I also just pulled these backbox reinforcement brackets out of the tumbler.

Oww!

#129 7 days ago

This pattern here is going to be tough to duplicate. This spot here is where the ball drops from the funnel and it was wore down to bare wood in this area. I airbrushed the yellow to blend out the color.

#130 7 days ago

Some of the pattern will need to be painted by hand but I made a stencil to get a large portion of the missing pattern done. Much less hand painting will be required after I use this stencil.

Damn genius

I had the same idea, but I drew the leopord skin pattern with a paint pen. Color did not match well.

It is Doug after all.

Putting decals on the back box.

These carriage bolts were tumbled but since you see the bolt heads on the side of the back box I wanted them to be polished better.

I put the bolt in a drill and spin the head on a gray scotchbrite pad, then spin it on the rag with metal polish.
