I'm not good at keeping track of work, so you won't see in progress pictures. After many hours of work and a BG order at Mayfair here the result.

Thanks a lot to all the Pros from the group that answered my question during this process

Color match is always the most difficult part ..Especially with old games.

Touch up were made with water base paint, Clear is Sraymax2K

I'm very happy with the results

Très belle job, content de voir le beau résultat. Spraymax est un bon produit, je l'avais déjà testé mais pas encore utilisé dans une restoration.
The video game i want to play is always the one i don't have :FP:

Wow Bro !!

Certain que ca va etre un gros challenge d'allumer la fleche doré encore une fois.

D'apes ce qu'on voit dans les photo de la brillante surface de jeux, ca va etre une game play rapide et précis

Comme je te l'ai dit plsuieurs fois, va falloir la faire jouer beaucoup pour essayer de l'apprivoiser, - j'adore le scorecard. :D

Maxed out at 10 machines, no more. Un max de 10 machines, pas plus.
Une règle suivi guéri de tout. A rule respected can cure anything.

A philosophy of doing shall rule until the days when I can no longer "do" arrive. Because when I am too old to adjust an AX relay or relieve a woman friend from sighing, there will only be memories to fill my time. So, the task at hand is to build that RRSP of memories in order to joyfully cushion the later stages of life.

Personally prefer the exceptional qualities lurking beneath any normal state of affairs. Alas, our day to day is being promoted as extraordinary via a world wide web largely fueled by the new dumb & followed closely by the latest breed of unscrupulous scoundrels & judas goats. So, god bless the fool hearted, the crazed, and the railroaded all in good measure for they will likely inherit what is left of the earth after the screwheads are done with it. God damn darwinian primates, why do they refuse to evolve, even after all we should have learned from being dumb savages for so long.

Terrific work, your playfield repairs are superb. What paint did you use? Did you hand paint, use stencils, or.... ?
