I like to get a clean cabinet interior, so all the wiring gets cleaned and all the mechanisms get broken down and reassembled, coin door gets a repaint (in this case, sandblasted first.) and the light panel always gets freshened up unless there’s some practical reason I can’t do that.

I’m out of sequence again…Of course, before any of that stuff goes back into the cabinet, the cab gets fully sanded down and repainted. I didn’t take pics of everything, but you’ve seen it before.

Finished and reassembled cabinet.
I used a special flat clear coat in this, which I like a lot. Completely non-glossy, it really looks like an old style pinball cabinet. High gloss also tends to really accentuate surface imperfections, which can be hard to get rid of even with a lot of hours of bondo and sanding. Flat clear really pushes those imperfections back. It really looks “correct” when it’s finished.

Meanwhile, I’d been reassembling the playfield.

Popped in and almost finished…

And I printed up my custom rules cards now that it was in the cabinet.

The finished project.
I had a bunch of delays on this; my local CNC guy is swamped, and I had to figure out another way to get the plastics cut. I didn’t take photos of the process, but yes, I did end up making a partial set of replacement plastics. Some of the old ones were broken, and any of them with halftones weren’t going to be a match at this point since I had redone all the halftone areas on decals.

There were other holdups as well, but all of them just mundane things that were nobody’s fault really, so I won’t go into all that. Suffice to say, this thing was mostly done in *Augist*, but it’s taken until today to iron out the last of the kinks. Luckily, we live in a universe where there is no such thing as a “pinball emergency.”

Here’s another dose of Warlok porn:
