Restoring Xenon
« on: February 20, 2010, 01:07:11 pm »
Hopefully, this will be finished by the TX pinball festival.  :dizzy: So far, I've already removed the head and playfield, and stripped the cabinet of parts. Since there isn't enough money in the budget to replace the cabinet($1200), I will strip the art off, fill in the gouges, and repaint the existing cabinet.

I will be using a new gold edition Xenon playfield in this project, and I got an NOS inner backglass.

By the end of today, I hope to have the art stripped. More to come.  :cheers:

End of day 1.

I tried removing the paint with stripper, but it didn't want to come off. A little better after round 3 with the stripper, but it still wasn't coming off completely. So, I busted out the sander, which was working much better.
