    Gotlieb Funland

    Ok time to start getting into this resto so while Iím still compiling the big order that Iím about to make for PBR, I thought first things first so before any cabinet repairs and stripping paint off, the cabinet artwork has to be copied and stencils made so thatís what Iíve been up to for the last couple of days.

    Gotlieb Funland

    Ok a bit more work done this weekend, there were a few repair jobs to the head and cabinet that I was dreading but when I actually got into it they werenít that bad and I was really happy with they way they turned out.

    First was the head box it had a big split in the bottom that needed repairing, a bit of gluing and screwing and filler and sanding to hide all the screws and nicks you will never see the repair when it gets the under coat.

    Then pretty much every corner of the head box needed a repair they were all damaged from years of neglect.
    And again more gluing and screwing and of course filler to hide everything and when painted youíd never know that there was ever any damage.

    And I also had a bit of time to start the cab repairs but this will be a slow ongoing process but so far Iím really happy with the way things are turning out.

    Look what showed up in the post today all the way from Rochester USA, my 3D printed Gotlieb ball in play light diverter.
    Just one more piece to the ever growing puzzle, I actually didnít even know that I needed one until it was brought up in another thread, you learn new things all the time with each new project.

    Bit more work done today itís so hard to find time during the week.
    Finally got the cab fully stripped and sanded down also got all the cabs minor repairs done.
    Just have to wait for all the filler to dry and another quick sand back then I can start the undercoating.

    Not much progress done lately but every little bit counts, finally got the cab all sanded down and all repairs to the head and cab are all fixed, and now with the first of the under coats on you canít tell where any of the repairs have been done at all.
    Just need another coat of undercoat tomorrow and then I will leave it till next weekend to start on the cabs final colour which is antique white.

    Two coats of undercoat now completed and big pinball resource order turned up today, itís the closest thing to feeling like a kid at Christmas when a pinball parts order turns up lol.
    But I canít do anything with it for quite awhile yet until Iíve finished with the cabinet repaint.

    Yeah I canít believe how rough and little care people take with these machines over the years Iíve got a fair bit to do with this one with repairs playfield and some missing bits and pieces, but what the heck thatís part of the challenge isnít it.

    I had a bit of time to do a few bits and pieces this week the cabinet has had itís two coats of antique white and I even managed to get the spatter done yesterday because of the nice weather and if I get time later today I will transfer the stencil designs to the cab for the taping up process to come.

    I spent about 6 hrs straight on this thing today and by the end of it I was physically and mentally exhausted, first up transferred the designs from the stencils that I made to the cabinet and head box.

    Next up comes the masking and I absolutely hate this bit it literally took me hours to get it all masked up.

    Another pain in the butt was all the arcs on the ends of the triangle shapes if I knew how much extra work it was going to be I would have just done what Tony Illawarra Steelers did on his Fun Fair and just kept them straight edges instead.

    Ok so all nearly ready for the first colour just have to fill in all the bare parts with news paper off cuts so I donít get paint everywhere when I use the roller, also made a trip to Bunnings to get the two colours I settled with these two shades the red and the blue as they seemed to match the original colours the best, but who cares if there not exact they look good enough for me.
    Well that s it for today anyway because Iíve had an absolute gut full of this thing today paint can wait till tomorrow.
