thx guys!

I should have knocked down the red better first, but I honestly like the edge as it gives the art some more feel. I will scothbrite the whole thing and top coat in a semi-gloss clear to finish it off.

Hoping to get the main cab done on Sunday. It is really getting crunch time to get this put back together for MGC; yikes!

Do you have a clear booth set up?

I have a space in the garage that is a temporary spray booth. It gets the job done but is less than ideal.

wife and house guests were sleeping in this AM.

I managed to get some stuff done!

I am stoked with how this color combination turned out.
Now time to dry and then get some clear on later in the week.

Excited to start cab assembly by next weekend!!!!

Made some good headway today.

Fired her up and all lights work. Still have to finish up flipppers, plastic install, new displays, finish up alltek board install, plus all the likely tweaking and adjusting but feels good to be to the stage of pf back in cab and cab largely assembled!!

Loving it!!!

thanks.

Got another day in of work and things are almost finished.
Amazingly, the only issue to address was a single flakey connector once it was all put back together.

I still have a few things to address, but I am 98% done.

I need to adjust spinner and put on nylon washers once they arrive from PBR.
I am trying to make my current apron look better, but really hoping that Brenna and the reproduction aprons come through in time for MGC. (I plan to put on a Skatball repro for now, but I have a buddy working on custom apron decals so I can finish my original apron to match the rest of the game)
I need to also fine tune and play test a ton to make sure it is ready for MGC.

Last thing is I need to find some nice custom apron cards (Anyone know of any good ones to share?)

Now time for some glamour shots.

Worth mention, that this game will likely be used in MGC Clock Chaos event and then out on the floor for the duration of the event.

Please give it a few plays and then cast a vote if you think it deserves it for best in show.
There is some stiff competition for SS restorations, and I am hoping this is a nice enough example combined with being a somewhat odd one to go crazy on restoring; and that will bring we some votes.

i hope everyone enjoys it

messing around with my apron now that I got the comfort thanks to merfeldma (sp?) and Brenna (sp?) that my reprodcution one is coming before MGC.

Hoping to get it all buttoned up this weekend and start playinga bunch of games to work out any bugs.

That machine is looking very nice. I look forward to playing it at MGC.

Great job Hilton...I know its a pain in the ass but more photos during some of these processes would have been fun to see.

Do you have a final tally on $ and hours spent?

I will get around to that at some point. just no time between Aliens, Dialed In, getting ready for MGC, Aerosmith launch, Aliens launch, and oh yes I have that normal job thing also, lol.

I have all the numbers but need to organize them.

In short, WAY TOO DAMN MUCH, lol.

I knew that going in to it.
