Bally rapid fire

Postby steamfitter » Tue Jan 22, 2019 12:04 pm

I put rapid fire back on legs and started removing parts and cleaning them.
I got the joystick panel all apart and cleaned .
How would you restore the panel , clear coat , wax any better ideas.
It's not painted it's a sticker.

Merci
Thanks

Denis

It depends on how far you want to take things but I would give it a wipe with a light solvent like Naptha. That will give a few seconds of what it would look like cleared. My guess is the colours will pop quite a bit if it was cleared. Mylar would protect it but unless you really heat it up it would not lay down and wet the surface fully. This would be a good candidate Spray Max. I did a playfield at a local auto shop and let them take care of spraying.

I would honestly say scan it and have it reproduced. Once made, strip the panel, get rid of the rust, paint it and apply the decal.
Because I can...

Thanks Fernando

Figured i would make it look good first, the game needs a good cleaning then reassemble to see what exactly what is missing :FP:
