Pinball Machine Restoration


Copmplete Restoration

Complete restoration of a Gottlieb Quick Draw. These electromechanicals can be restored if I can get the machine to reset, score and run properly. In this case the games innards were still in relatively good condition and after getting it running it was feasible to proceed with the restoration.


Partial restoration

Playfield Restoration

A playfield can be fully restored and treated with a hard wearing clear coat to virtually pristine condition.

Usually a replica playfield is made and installed when the original is too far gone.

Cabinet Respray

In the good ol' days, before pinball machine cabinets were finished using full colour decals, they were finished using mask and spray processes.

The lower cabinet and backbox is primed, stencilled and sprayed according to the original colour scheme and graphics. A final layer of urethane clear coat is applied to protect the new graphics

Backglass Restoration

A backglass with minimal damage can be restored. In most cases a replica is made


Cabinet Decals

Old decals are stripped off, the cabinet is sanded and prepared with an epoxy base coat before the new decals are applied.
