Nice job on the Rockmakers, but it wasn't a member of the Paint It Black club, as were most of the other examples on this thread. Hard to tell if that was just a half-assed repaint job, or a repurposed cabinet from a different game (suspecting the former).

Second side of the cab done. This one went MUCH faster now that I know what I'm doing. She's not going to win any beauty contests but I like it!

Was it hard to distinguish what was originally black underneath the new black? I imagine that would have been a pain in the ass.

Looks great!

And such great art for this era. Probably one of my favorite wedgehead art packages, along with El Dorado.

I found if if I really scoured up the latex with the 3M pad and let the Xylene soak in for a few minutes I could get the majority of the paint off carefully with a scraper. Then all I had to do was go back and get the stubborn bits off with the 3M pads.
