Quoted from Twilight1:

we cut out the bad doweled glued notches in the new. Then We would mud it sand paint find more do it again. And again. And again. So it took us 5 months to get this far.

Oh my god! That's quite impressive. That cab looked hosed. Nice work.

Quoted from Twilight1:

made a stand for the Playfield

Lovin' this makeshift work-bench. Looks like it's doing just what you need it to!

Quoted from Twilight1:

We need to do some work to the topper.

From one WW owner to another, here's a documentation of my topper restore:

Maybe something there will be useful to you. Good luck.

Quoted from Twilight1:

We moved my WH20 over to my buddy place

Ha-ha! I like that wall lamp shoved out of the way to make room for WH2O.

Quoted from Twilight1:

As you can see we are puting everything back together without any clear or paint. We are going to buy a new repo Playfield one day and do it again.

Jeez, you are far more patient than I am. (I haven't even been able to do a complete teardown once, let alone twice. Ha-ha!)

Quoted from Twilight1:

Also the plan is We are going to custom paint...

I'm very curious what this "custom paint job" will look like. Can you elaborate on what you have in mind? (Genuinely interested, not judging.)

Best of luck on this ambitious project, guys!
