Viper going to get a new skin

Postby redketchup » Fri Oct 13, 2017 7:19 am

I start a new project i want to do for a long time now... classic stern viper playfield restoration.

My playfield is in good shape, but there is mylar everywhere. Mylar was put somewhere in this pinball life because, there is a lot of ball swirl underthe mylar.

I made a test with the mylar, two half circle in front of the slingshot and everything was ok

After this mini-succes, i take the decision, take the plunge, strip the playfield and remove the rest of the mylar...

There is one place in this playfield with dithering (dot art), this is probably the only tricky part to restored if i got problem with the mylar... and this is the only place where I had probleme. :o

There is two place where the mylar was not the same... thicker and seem stronger and the paint come with the mylar in this two place.

After chating a lot with some MAACA expert yesterday, i think i have a solid solution to correct this mistake.

This the playfield almost completly stripped

Scanning sunday!

Thank's Bruno for the scan HP4600, it work like a charm for scanning a playfield.

So the first part to resolve my problem was scanning the problematic part.

after that, we have to clean everything to make a good rub-on decal done... I decide to paint all the yellow completely, so the red dithering will have to be redone, but the black text also...

I should have my rub-on transfers back in about 10 days.
I had them print some dithering pattern for my friend's TMNT playfield that I am restoring for him. I'll let you know if I experience any problems. My only fear is the fine detail... but I think the process can handle it.

Mine is just a small area around the blades so I grabbed the art directly from the scan. I did not re-draw it.
Yours will be a LOT bigger of course, but as long as you tape down the sheet and use a nice hard edge squeegee or credit card to press it down, it should apply nice and evenly.

Little progress tonight

I make a box for the playfield... it will be easier to work on it and clear. I completely strip the top part and remove all the assembly underside, drop, sling, pop, flipper, switch and swith activator

After i secure all the solenoid with tie-wrap and put the playfield on the box and secure the harness... I already change all the bulb socket for this pins, so i don’t want to remove it and completely strip the underside... this is why i used this method

I also work on the wood rail. The classic stern wood rail are made with cheap wood and vinyl, i always change it for harder wood with black paint
