  • Gorgar repro backglas

    Started my Gorgar restoration today. First step is the backglass. Had a 4.5mm sheet of polycarbonate cut for the backglass repro ($45). I have decided against using glass as the polycarbonate is much more durable and light weight.

    Front of the glass shows it has had a hard life, but the majority of the artowrk is still there.



    When I bought this machine I thought the backglass looked a bit queer. Quick check of the rear revealed why. Remember: Friends don't let friends use cans of white spraypaint on their backglasses for touchups.



    Backglass scanning commences with the HP4670 scanner after it is thoroughly cleaned.



    Cabinet and pf pics to come.

                    You are all dirty minded.


                    GORGAR1 - can only make for it for my machine under "fair use". Can't make them for other people, sorry.

                      Hey Brad- I too am interested in seeing this turn out as well.

                      I saw your Pinball Pool BG 1st hand and it was very nice.
                      The only thing you could add to your BG repro's would be to get that mirror finish into them ( and I know thats tough / impossible )

                      One question ( and I will admit right here I have NO idea about repro-ing BG's ) in regards to getting a mirror finish . Is there a way that you could use ( I think it is called ) Silver Leaf to replicate the silver / mirror finish

                      I am pretty sure that would look VERY similar but I am totally unsure as to how 'workable' it is with the methods you use to repro BG's

                        No worries Brad-I understand.

                          The closest I can get with mirroring is with the chrome layer material that is on the backglass already.

                          Ed Cheung has also dabbled with backglasses using a similar method by printing onto a translite.

                            If you could get un-coated mirror, you could etch it, like the originals.
                            (same manner as a PCB)
                            Maybe, if you were careful, you could strip the back coating off regular mirror with paint-stripper?
                            Any arcade, pin, juke, probs in Adel, just message me.
