    Still a fair bit actually
    Have to touch up the paint under where the pop bumpers are or make some decals to stick down to cover the damage not sure which way to go yet.
    And the playfield needs to be completely reassembled and flippers rebuilt.
    Playfield waxed
    Wood pieces for the playfield guides re lacquered
    All the contacts have to be cleaned and adjusted still
    Have to visit the local glazier to get a new playfield glass made up.
    And there are a few more things on the list as well

    Sometimes it all seems overwhelming. I just make a list and try and do one thing at a time.

    Yeah baby steps every little thing that you do is one step closer I never intended this to be a quick restoration as every part of the thing needed restoring not just a tidy up, Iíve already lost count of how much money Iíve put into it for parts and power coating and I may still get some nickel plating done like I did with the Covergirl restore.
    But itís worth it when you see the end results of a wreck ending up looking like it just left the factory.

    Yeah very true. You definitely go that extra mile with the restoration. The end result is worthwhile.

    Check out the colour differences between the new glass and the old, the new glass just pops with its colours.
    Oh well just have to get the motivation to get stuck into the rest of it now, Iíve done very little on it lately because Iíve had so much family issues come up and this was the least of my priorities.

    Huge difference between the old and new . I can see why you sprung for a new glass . Sometimes there is no choice

    Gotlieb Funland

    Finally got a bit of work done on the playfield have not had much time lately to do any work on her so hereís a start anyway baby steps every bit counts.
    First off I wasnít sure what method to use to repair the painted areas under the pop bumpers it was either touch the areas up with paint, but since I didnít feel comfortable with my paint skills I decided print up some stickers to repair the areas using gloss photo sticker paper.

    Printed out decals on glossy photo sticker paper and carefully cutting them out using a sharp hobby knife and sharp scissors

    Progress is slow but I Got a bit more work done today

    Replaced the duck spinners as the originalís were a little bit worn, so luckily PBR are now making the decals to restore them back to new.
