Recommended Posts

As most people know i was looking for a fathom and i purchased this shatter a few year ago out of desperation .

I had buyers remorse for awhile thinking omg wtf am i going to do with this.

Looks very similar to how my Medusa started off. It’s worth the effort. Keep going.  Just remember it will be a beautiful machine when you finish it. 
 

By the way, and really not meaning to hijack the thread so PM me rather than ruining @Pinoffski’s thread but if anyone knows of a crappy fathom in a similar state to this bad boy that I could get my hands on, I’d love for that to be my next project and end up sat next to my Medusa and centaur.

If there ever was a title worth saving from being scrapped then Fathom is it IMO. 

Or do what we did. C’mon Mermaids👍

Great thread Davo.  Keep posting pics mate.  I never get sick of seeing good pins bought back to life.

Also, look at @spacies  Tron cab restore in the arcade section.   Some awesome work done there repairing a badly damaged cab when it could be saved.

Might give you some ides elsewhere in your restore.

Nice work so far @Pinoffski . Are you re-spraying completely? Side art doesn’t look too bad.

Yes full respray 

It had  repainted on one side and touched up on the opposite side

Just need to find a good match of the color .

 

Cab had some separation of the plywood
