Flaking paintwork

Postby skeggylad » Mon Aug 18, 2014 11:11 pm

I am pretty new to the arcade world; well I've owned a few and played a few but I know a thing or two about paint work. I was taught to paint by Raleigh in the '80s - yes the bike company.

I repaired the glass on my new Bally 742a tonight - see the results:

Basically, get your wife's nail varnish set and an old mirror or bit of glass and practice with colours with a bright light behind. I used black on the silver that had flaked off as at night you don't see through the silver or mirror, but for the brown I used two layers of orange and a third coat of black.

The guy from Raleigh came to my work once a week when I worked for British Aerospace as an Ion coater and paint sprayer spraying epoxy resin onto items to stop them collecting moisture at high altitudes.
Interesting job.
