Just another quick update;

The original backbox had a serial number stamped onto the top of it (1st pic), so just for the sake of keeping this game as original as possible (and just to see if i could do it)  :lol i decided to recreate it on the donor backbox.

The pics tell the story..
i took a scan of the original serial # printed it out onto paper and used that to trace it onto some masking tape stuck onto the backbox using carbon paper. Cut it out, masked off and a couple of light coats of black paint... DONE!!

A few more pics for now.. new info and warning cards made and stapled into the backbox to replace the torn originals

plus a couple of pics showing overall where i'm at with it at this time.

It might have to go on hold again for a little while, while i do a few other jobs that need to be done.

Well i had to dig deep to find this thread again.. it's only been on the go for SEVEN YEARS after all  :D :D


Having some time on my hands being between resto work, i decided to get back onto some of my own projects, so i dug the Pinball Pool playfield out of storage and get it ready to start on.
 
A few pics for now.. playfield mounted in one of my jigs, mylar and glue removed and ready for some insert and touchup work.


Pics tell the story of what needs to be done; will add more pics as the work progresses!

I'm in the same boat, Mitch ! I have a couple of projects that were waiting on things to come together and like you, the updates will be rapidly posted. Good to see you back on this underrated machine.

The weather has been shit here for the last few days.. raining one minute then sunny and hot and humid the next, which means painting on the p/f is out of the question.


So i decided to grab the coin door and refurbish that instead to help move forward with the resto  *%*


First pic obviously BEFORE starting, really dirty and disgusting!


Second pic showing the stripped, rusty inner frame after removing the stainless outer door skin! This was a good opportunity to put the sandblasting cabinet to work that i bought nearly a year ago  @.@


Third and fourth pic; the coin entry plate components.. rusty as hell!! and after about five minutes in the sandblasting cabinet.. much betterer!!  :D    Remember this game came to me with a rotted water damaged cabinet!!


Final pic, outer skin refitted to the de-rusted and cleaned up inner frame.

Surprising how much time needs to be spent on a door. The finished product speaks for itself !

A little more progress made on the playfield over the last couple of days, despite the 40+ degree heat i had to deal with today!


Whites redone in the areas covered by the plastics;


Notice with the captive ball area in the center of the p'f (2nd and 4th pic) i chose to spray the entire area white (actually beige was the colour i used). This was done in order to give a nice even white base for the red and make it 'pop' more once it was airbrushed on.


Some filler work has also been done around the inserts that had wear back to the wood, Automotive primer/filler was used to build the surface up level again and sanded level ready for touchups.
