1954 Seeburg Coon Hunt shooting gallery refresh

Postby ddstoys » Mon Mar 14, 2016 8:24 am

Hi Guys decided to start another one of my projects - this one is a 1954 Seeburg Coon Hunt.

This will be a long term project as space allows.

I'll attach a photo of what it should look like, what mine actually looks like and a few of the guns restoration. I can never seem to get them in order but I'm sure you guys will work it out. ;)

Dan, I was going to say look out where you point that rifle! Then remembered your Ten Strike needs a new dome anyway. !!SUICIDAL!!

Pulled out the cabinet and stripped what was left of it. All the shiny stuff was sent to the platers months ago, hopefully get it back soon.
The paint was literally falling off. I used the edge of a steel ruler to get it to the state in one of the photos.

It's been back to bare timber and is now in primer. The aim for this game is to look nice not new. So any imperfections that don't get removed in the repair process will be left - no point owning something so old if it looks brand new.

Thanks Henk

More prep work on the cab waiting for glue to dry decided I'd have a go at the instruction plate.
This is aliminium with the writing etched in then painted again going for nice not new.

The glue residue was a bastard to get off and in a few spots had corroded the alloy.

Steel wool and windex to start removed what was left of the glue and levelled out the corrosion then went around the rest of it the same way till it all looked uniform. Once that was done got out the old buff wheel on the drill and slowly buffed it till it had a shine. I'll leave it as is for now once it's on the freshly painted game it might look like shit but I'm happy for now

Small amounts of progress fixed some seperating ply on the gun stand that the primer showed up added some more primer ready to sand when time
Permits.

And tonight I dissasembled the credit mechanism for a scrub. It's only roughly assembled for now still a couple of items to do before I fully assemble it like replace that huge antique capacitor today's equivalent will be tiny in comparison.
