Click on image to enlarge.
Lower part of backbox has a large piece missing.
Anti theft bar's mounting bracket is mounted without sparing the cabinet.
And the same in other side.
Besides the mounting hole, also paint has been stripped away.
Problem areas have been sanded.
Hole is plugged with a wood plug and the surface is made even with filler.
Backbox corner is sanded and filled.
You can barely notice the fixups.
Destroyed image is sketched on the filling.
Looks like a great success!
Only slight difference in color shows that Ms. Pinbot's leg has been restored.
And the fingers dont look homemade, either.Even if the cabinets condition does not affect game playing, a pinball machine is a piece of furniture and should be nice looking. If I happen to get a badly damaged game, by these pictures I will surely know who to ask for help.
Time for some test playing.
