Very nice. The black on the cabinet looks like it lines up, did you cut the stencil to get it to line up correctly?

no cutting, the black over laps the orange, these stencels were made by Les,and lent to me,
he does a pro job on these stencels, they arent like the stick on ones you buy from the US, were you get that sharp edge these are like the ones Bally would have used on these machines, theres were thin metal and these are thin plastic , so you get that little over spray on some edges , iam very happy with the cabinet.
thanks Les!!

what sort of hours went into it?
what is a kiss pinball worth approx?? unrestored?

hi guys,

Gibo i cant get any more on?

this machine took six months, alot of time every nut and bolt and bracket was zinc coated just like out of the shop, i wanted it to be like a new machine!
i dont know what there worth?? pinballs are only worth what someone is willing to pay for them!

all depends on the condition, mine cab was faded very bad and back glass was perfect the playfield needed cleaning and clearing.
it took me 2 years to find mine they dont come up very often, i have seen really bad ones that sell for $2500-$3500.
