"Some of the reflections in the silver balls on the sides are of artist Kevin O'Conner himself, who wore a beard for many years."
Above is the cabinet before anything has been done. Note that it is a little faded and has some scratches and dings. However, it is actually in pretty good shape for a game this old. But, after seeing
the before and after, I am glad I decided to restore this game.
Above left shows the stencil drawing for both the head and the cabinet. To the right is the stencil laying on the side of the cabinet. I am using rocks to hold it in place and prevent underspray.
Above you can see the blue as it applied. The first pic is after it has been sprayed but before I have removed the stencil. The second is after the stencil has been removed. Being my first restoration, I was totally
blown away by the difference and how good it looked, even for an amateur like me.
Above is the black being applied. Again, I used rocks (my backyard has an area filled with river rock) to secure the stencil. Note that on later games you will see me using an old socket set. The socekt
set has smaller pieces that are a little easier to place to get the stencil to lay flat.
