Great thread, so good I bought a machine to practice on, a Bally Eight Ball. It has nice simple colours for the most part. Somebody decided to hand paint some poor looking patches around the racked balls near the bottom and add some mylar. The mylar is now coming up and has lots of paint attached to it.
Also, somebody decided to pull up the mylar against the slingshot so the paint could get worn off for some reason. I have a couple of questions for approaching this.
I guess I need a fairly big decal across the balls. Should I cut it into smaller pieces to make them manageable?
Do I sand everything off in that area and level the inserts with clear (all the inserts are nice and even with the playfield but are cupped)?
How do I do the sanding across the racked balls area to stop precisely on the narrow bare wood strip around the balls?
This machine has a nice black trench dug in through the clear coat at the top area. I think you addressed this earlier but I cannot find it now.
Again, enjoying the thread immensely.
