thought Id take a quick look at the belly glass and strangely enough I think it will be easier than the top glass, not so much tiny fragments, the the photo is much smaller than the top glass one though (57k) might need a higher res photo to do a good job and that might increase the damage that shows. In 5 mins I managed to get this far including replacing the damaged payout symbols

Well it's just fantastic and yes I'll definitely be using it, I will however need someone to give me an idea who to use for printing and what exactly to ask for when seeking to get it printed, though I won't be doing that until the other part is done and I'm very happy to wait two weeks. You enjoy your holiday, I've never been to either but my mam's been to Morocco and I've been to Sardinia which is a great place and probably similar. Once again many thanks for the great work. Mick

Only just seen this, I agree it will need to be bigger. I don't really understand how it is that small. Someone will need to tell me how to upload it bigger or I can email it. It's 5224 × 3397 (4.6 MB) on my computer before I uploaded it on the forum.

can you email the file to me with a size of about 1.3 to 1.5 MB, it loads from the forum at just 34k, dont know why the top glass came in at a good 1.2mb.

my email can be found on the contact tab to the right of this post...I think

Thanks for the hi-res photo by email. now I can see the extent of the damage,its a lot! you couldnt have repaired this glass, there are literally 100's of paint cracks and movements. Ive made a start just for fun and its moving along quicker than the top glass(so far). you can see from the results of the first stage work on the shamrocks how many cracks show up. Ive done about 50% of the yellow background and Im down to the very small cracks now. had some fun re doing the payout table but still lots to do in that area too.The lettering was in better shape than the top glass and has moved forward real fast.As before its those old mirrored areas that are the real problem,the shamrocks and the frames but its coming along.

Yep, I did think it was too much to repair myself as soon as I touched the original the paint work just either moved or fell off. It's looking good already. Is it possible for you to take the background colour from the payout table on this glass and then change the colour on the top glass around the threepenny bit to match?
Ps: don't forget to go on your holiday.

Ok,here is the latest draft before I go on vacation, Its a good job you decided to restore the machine when you did,I dont think the glass would have lasted much longer, it looks ok till you dig deeper,there are not 100's of scratches and flakes there are actually 1000's. The shamrock Ive just finished had over 500 seperate damage points, I thought Id time myself being as there has been some dispute about how long it takes, using a combination of flood,clone and paint it took me 57 mins,and I enjoyed every min :cool:
