    Gotlieb Funland

    Bit more progress today spent another 1 to 2 hours work prepping before I could get to put down the first of the colours the blue, just had to cover everything up with paper otherwise I just know myself to much I would have got paint somewhere it shouldnít be.

    And next if Iíve learnt one thing off this site by not having bleeding coming through itís thanks to @illawarra_steelers and @millsy56 and their resto threads and just something so simple as to just use your finger dipped into the base coat and rubbing it along the edges of the masking to seal the edges.

    And once the sealing paint is dry itís the start of three fairly light coats of the blue with about one to two hours in between coats.

    Then after about another two hours worth of drying off comes the paper.

    Then slowly the masking comes off and boy I was rapt with the way it turned out not one bit of bleeding came through and the points and lines were so sharp.

    And just roughly assembled to get an idea of what the final result is going to look like, even with just the blue itís already starting to look good next update will be with the red colours done. I canít begin to explain how much prep work is involved with a restoration project you donít appreciate what these guys do with these machines until you have done one of these for yourself.

    Iíve spent pretty much the entire day today working on finishing up the paint on this old girl.
    The arks on the reds and the masking up took the best part of over four straight hours and by the time I had that part of it done I was ready to chuck it in for the day, but I soldiered on and kept going I really just wanted to get it all over and done with.

    All masked and papered up

    And the old finger in the base coat paint trick to seal up all the edges

    Red paint all applied and Iíve got to admit I really wasnít happy with the colour when I was applying it but then when I started removing masking the colours really popped and I thought yes that looks good.

    Looks great.
    I have done a few cabinet re-paints now and it takes a lot longer than you would think.

    Little bit more work done whenever I can squeeze in some spare time. A few minor details first but sometimes the minor things make a big difference, new power lead the original one looked so old and ratty this one should last another 50 years.

    Started installing all the hardware back into the headbox.

    Four new glides on the back of the cabinet and a new head box back cover guide rail I didnít even bother trying to clean the old old pictured next to it, it was way to corroded to get the results I was looking for, like I said very minor details but it all adds to the look of a restore.

    And all new legs and leg levellers and rubber floor protectors, door strike plate also have a heap of other new cabinet bits from PBR that still need to be fitted also a flipper skill games topper.

    I'm just interested to look inside the cabinet because my Lawman had the same 4 bolts on the back of the cabinet and they connected to a stepdown transformer which fed into normal transformer. It worked out for mine that I didn't need it because the jones plugged near the transformer could switch the power from 115v to 230v.

    This was the Lawman setup, is yours similar?
