    Quoted from WeatherbyMAG:

    Flash Gordon got it's "stripes" as it were....
    Tried about 5 different shades of gold before I came up with this one that I was most happy with. In the up close pics, you can see how same piece can give off different look depending on flash/lighting/camera angle etc.

    Quoted from WeatherbyMAG:

    & as if I did'nt have enough fun with PF's this weekend, I sanded down Rob's CPR FG & cleared it after some touchups.
    This one was worst CPR I have worked on. The inserts had shifted & popped up through the clear on a couple of the bonus inserts, #2 & 3 in particular. Of course that left a slight line of art missing in the black. There is a before & after sanding closeup of the affected area.
    All touched up & cleared now. Will flatten it & buff it tonight along with Sorcerer & Cheetah.

    Geez..glad I have a professional working on it. Good catch.

    Quoted from WeatherbyMAG:

    It's like a Flash Gordon factory in the paint booth right now...... Got Tom's & Rob's back boxes shot in red. Rob's has some black stencil work on it so far, Tom's will be right behind it tonight for black & then onto the Gold.

    Now that’s what FG should look like not that funky watermelon color mine was. Looks great.

    Quoted from WeatherbyMAG:

    Making a new Maple tilt board for Rob's FG as well to match the bottom panel. Could'nt put an old flakeboard tilt board in this cabinet.
    I almost forgot I had removed the original PF guides/holders, so I had to make a new set of them. Still need to clear them before installing as well.
    But it's looking fairly spiffy.
    It needs a new rectifier.. I noticed multiple burn marks underneath the original & it has a bunch of damaged diodes. I wouldn't put that thing back into my worst enemies Pinball Machine, just a fire waiting to happen. So I'll get a new one ordered for it.

    Wow!! Just wow!! Replace whatever you need to my man. Incredible work!
