Sparky's vault... GTB Pink Panther restoration

Post by Sparky »

Well, I started sifting through my old computer stuff and found some old videos I had on YouTube a long time ago... I figure that they might inspire a new generation of collectors to restore old games some might consider to be worthless.

So, here is a set of videos depicting the restoration of a Gottlieb Pink Panther cabinet... enjoy! And yes... I am a moron. LOL I like making them funny...

Part 1... the Stink Panther...



Part 2... getting there...



Part 3... LOOKING GOOD!!!!

Wow, nice job, Sparky! That is a truly tasteful cabinet artwork update. They should have used artwork like that from the factory!

I actually have done A LOT of custom jobs like this over the years. I have something like 200 videos. I will post a couple. And I intend on still doing some. Working on a few right now...some rethemes, some custom.

This is great.

What are you using to spray? Do you do that inside?

HVLP gun and a good compressor. I do it in my 12x12 which I nearly doubled in size, insulated, heated and added a ventilation system. But I do tend to get lazy and not wear my mask. Lol
