  1. for this one I decided to colour match the legs to the game so for Supersonic they had to be red The leg on the right showing the original rust and tatty paint. The leg on the left stripped and ready for paint. To strip the leg I have a length of PVC storm pipe capped at one end and with a screw cap at the other. Filled with double strength vinegar from Woolies. I sit the legs in there for 2 weeks and then take them out and spray they off with the Karcher. The paint just flies off. Then I used SCA primer filler and a quick sand with 800 grit followed by 2 more coats of primer, sanding between each. Helps to get rid of the little scratches. Rather than use the rust oleum for an exact match I used Gloss red Australian export from SCA as its 1/3 the price of rust oleum. finishing off with 3 coats of crystal clear coat. Not sanded to leave a powder coated appearance. With the leg bolts fresh from the tumbler it’s looking slick. The coin door. taken apart and all mechs cleaned, decided to colour match the back plate to the legs and transformer cage. I used the same steps, primer and sand x3 then paint, followed by a few coats of clear. before: After

  2. Playfield…. I was surprised to find the rails were a pink, but it ties in with the pink on the plastics. the exposed rails were dirty and dark, and faded light in others The pictures on the flyers for the game show the rails to be a deep pink. I had heard a lot about Montana paint. I found that they had a range of pinks so I ordered the closest I could find(difficult on a computer screen!) and went for Montana black - Punk pink. The rails were sanded primed, sanded etc until the imperfections were gone, then I hit it with the Punk pink. I must say, the Montana black is amazing to paint with. Thick and even cover on 1 pass. I have found my new favourite paint! When laid down it was a lighter shade than I expected, but I like it. I gave it 2 coats of clear, which made it pop. it looks more fluoro in the photo than it actually is. I got the playfield back together and the pink rails look great with the pink in the playfield plastics.

  11. Thanks Steve, I'm not new to snakes & my son is a legal snake catcher. Trouble is he's in Bendigo. All I'm looking at is making sure the snake moved on before I put the dogs outside.

  14. Is it Xmas yet? Not quite, but it's coming. Here's a cheery view of a popular game ... Only 5 days to go until this game is closed. 👨‍🎤 Apparently this is a singer emoji on this forum. Bizarre.

  16. CP arrived today. Very pleased with it. Andy also had a spare bezel he gave me which fits perfectly. So that was also bloody lucky. Wish I had that before I spent hours trimming and sanding the other one 🤣

  21. Just an update. Decided to go rust oleum 2x. Limited range, but primary colors seem ok. so yellow - sun yellow red - apple red blue - deep blue. Laid down the yellow and the first pinball pimp stencil on ready to go. And the red is down. Followed by the blue.

  23. Hi all. I noticed that my go to site for downloads has shut down. The reason I post is because I was looking for Teknoparrot games/roms hoping that there would be some on pleasuredome. Now I am unsure where to look
