The front door, and coin plate on King Pin was pretty rusty. Spent the afternoon removing rust, and doing the hammertone thing. First time I have used this stuff, and am pretty impressed. As you can see I am missing one Pricing Insert plastics, if anyone can spare me one pls let me know (doesnt matter if its a little different). I have basically spent the weekend fiddling with pins, and have enjoyed it.

Back when I was restoing clocks I used to spray the iron ones in enamel and bake em in the oven. I reckon those clocks will have finish to last 100 years. But cant bake a pinball door (I thought about it lol), so just hope it wears well.
:cool:

Hamertone is great, and looks the part.

Basically it's paint with shit load of silicone in it!,

yep aerosol can, and it comes out deceptively fast. I found that doing a series of thin layers worked the best. 14 bucks from bunnings, and I used a minimal amount (this can will last me years). Will get some King Pin pics up, the BG is hammered, and the PF suffers some bad touch-ups. Its has a whole heap on new gear installed such as drop targets, plastics, coils, flipper mechs, switches, plays really well, and better when I get the transformer high tapped next week.

The machine presents pretty well, and definately worth what I paid. In the long term I want to fully resto the PF and BG.

nice work. I'm currently doing the same thing for my stern magic this weekend. I had to strip the original hammertone off, just like the legs I did months ago. After doing the legs, the coin door looked awful (it looked ok until next to the as new legs) so off it came.

Never realised how much stuff is attached to a coin door!

I didnt take the door off the pin to spray it, and only took the coin slot plate off. Actually I didnt even move the pin from its space in the line-up......lol lazy! But covered, taped/papered everything really well. :cool:

I was tempted to do that, but the frame (not the door itself) was a little bent from I guess an attempted break in, and the back of the door was a little rusty, so I decided to go the whole hog and fix both those problems too.
