    Alien Poker Restoration

    Hi all, wish me luck been putting this one off for a while the fabbo "Alien Poker"

    Does anyone know the paint colors it was painted in, specifically the blue and the red. The playfield isnt too bad has a "plastic protective cover which is pealing off. I've replaced many things on the driver board having still random issues. I'm considering taking it oto the pinball medic for a good service.

    Awesome, I'll be looking forward to seeing how you go with it.

    I don't know why, but whenever I play some visual pinball, I always seem to stick to Alien Poker. Hope to play or own the real machine one day. I can't put my finger on why I like it so much.

    The easiest way to match the cab colors is to wheel the head or body into any paint store and have them computer match the colors.

    Under the legs or coindoor will usually have an unfaded section of paint.

    (they need about 1.5cm of paint area to sample.)

    Buy the highest quality paint they have, as you might have to thin it to spray it.
