    Metallic Sharpie. Dries fast doesn't run. No sanding.
    Before and after viola!

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    You should de-rust & polish those, rather than paint over.

    Ok thanks.
    Point is the sharpie marker worked after one coat. I'd like to see rust come through in 5 years after 3 coats
    The ingredients seem to be similar to that of a sand free primer. Its giving me a brushed flat metal finish rather than a shopping cart mirror finish. it makes the entire play field look new!

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    It won't last very long between the ball wear and the rusting that's already in progress. Only hardened paint will resist wear (as in, a powdercoat), white a sharpie won't do much. Plus, paint/ink generally doesn't stop the further development of rust, and the reaction will continue underneath the surface of the paint, and eventually erupt through the paint. Rust is similar to an infection--if you don't eradicate it, it will keep advancing.

    Resto modded to full glory! I did some thinking and thought you know when I used to work as an electrician at the union and the tin knockers were there they always used ink to mark their metal and they told me it is because it wouldn't wipe off easy!! I'll definitely report back to this thread when I notice any changes to the inkjob I hope I helped anyone who has had a headache thinking about actually pulling their wire forms off of their machines to rehab them this ink tip got in every single crevice it took me about 14 total hours but it is done and fitted with three coats I am so pleased and happy to share this with everyone!!!

    Quoted from Hayfarmer:

    I just sent some wire forms off to Robert stone on this site. His work looks outstanding, and good price too I think

    I hope you like what you get but I'm telling you straight handedly my method is the safest easiest and most durable way of restomodding your wireforms. Excuse me for being new and Innovative but since this is an alcohol-based product your ball will roll much smoother and faster then as if it was powder coated. As you see I am excited to share my new and improved way to rehab and Resto your wire forms Hallelujah 2020

    Quoted from PinRob:

    14hrs? Really Seems it would have been easier to take em off and get them powder coated or chromed

    I loved every minute of it and I know it's done right because I did it thank you
