Jubilee Riviera chrome

Postby pennywise » Thu Oct 11, 2018 7:17 pm

Hi people,
I've just got a Jubilee Riviera and the chrome has gone and been painted with spray chrome. Just thinking of chrome wrapping the sides of the machine as they are wood and not in too bad of condition, so could easily be taken back off and painting the front but don't quite know what colour to go for. Just wondering if anyone has done the same by painting the front because getting it redone in chrome would cost a fortune. Does anyone have any pictures of painted one?. #looking4ideas

The most common paint job seen on these is using Hammerite type paint, although nothing to stop you using a smooth paint with right preparation. Do a search on this site.

I know it depends on personal taste, but I'd be spending more time on undoing the ghastly decimal conversion than attending to the chrome.
If anything stands out to mar the appearance, it's the awards expressed in money instead of coins.

I'm not quite sure but the Powell Conversions I've seen of late appear to have stove enameled work over the old bright-work. Not sure how much this costs.

Just a bit of an update, after grinding, sanding, more sanding, wet sanding, buffing and polishing, vinyl wrap wood and chrome wrap this is the result on the after pics. Not too happy with the right side polish but overall it's a hobby so on to the next.

Over the years, for varying reasons at the time, I have tried all the methods discussed in this thread, on this model. It's not an easy job, regardless of which methods you use and as you say, results can be at best mixed. I see you removed the 3 stars that pays £1 glass? Is this because it had all the pay £1 bits removed or was glass itself in poor condition? If it is in good condition I'd be tempted to leave it in place regardless of the payout as it probably light up better than the tic-tac-toe replacement, that is now fitted?

I paint them with Hammerite and they normally turn out half decent. I also paint the Aristocrats when chrome is beyond it and they normally turn out good with a bit of time spent on them. I have to admit I do go a bit radical on the colours haha but I like to be different. :)

Hi aristomatic i removed and changed the glass because i wanted it to be more original and didnt pay out the 1 pound anyway but left the stars on the reels as i think they must be glued on and dont want to re do the reels, plus when lit up it looked very tatty with cracks in the paint so a friend did me a back sticker with the tic tac toe logo. Happy with the result :D

Nice paint job is that hopefully looking out for a Aristocrat machine to do next as i havnt got one of those yet, just got 3 Bally machines that have been in a barn for the last 20yrs to tinker with but they are electo-mechanical and im more body work and mechanical not a clue about electrics switches so will make it look nice and probably have to have someone to do the mech but will give it a damn good go. |/XX\|
