Hi folks,

I am restoring a Pinbot and I am making a new Vortex Ramp cover. Got the acrylic at Home Depot and scanned the little space shuttle and cleaned it up. I now need to make a new decal from the art work. I see lots of different brands and types of water slide decal paper. Anyone have any recommendations as to which ones to use? Or if you recommend a better way to do it I am all ears.

Also, if anyone would like a copy of the space shuttle for a decal I would be happy to email it to you. The file is a .jpg. I also recreated the label that goes in the back box that shows how the displays are connected. If anyone would like that file I am happy to send that via email too.

Papilio supplies (http://www.texascraft.com/hps/home.php) has good paper, but I'm not sure I'd use the water slide. See the following article: http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/how-i-recreate-plastics

Thanks for the link TerryB. As I get more involved in restoration I may have to advance to something that nice! I just have a single little decal right now. Thanks again.
