Got a bit more done yesterday .
The underside of the playfield was suffering badly from delamination, particularly the top end .
I had previously glued it down but decided to fill and repaint as otherwise it would annoy me that I had not done it every time I lifted the PF .
Luckily I remembered to take a before pic shortly after I started with the filler .


Respray will be next, then reinstal the braid and labels

What can help is a coat of primer on the timber to bind the paint and also help match the paint as the primer can be white. Gav taught me this old trick on the "Aces High" restoration. Are you using acrylics or enamels ? Are you planning to clear or mylar ?

Don't be discouraged or overwhelmed. You need to try different things and make mistakes - although one good tip - ask the missus to colour match - they are usually spot on !

Gday Nino . I am using Jo Sonja Acrylics . Not planning to clear at this stage . Maybe Mylar .. will see .

Great choice. I use Jo-Sonjas and they are very easy to work with.
