Correct, Starlite is finished but I might start a new thread on it, with some before and after shots for reference.

The Clubmaster is stripped and painting commenced, chrome pieces are with the electroplater.

The payout tray polished up pretty good with Autosol.

This is the bottom panel that has the access door to the money box (maybe not the correct terminology?) Paint stripper applied, then sanded.

Primer applied.

Lockwood locks arrived today, thanks Gameswat. Needs a slight trim on the backplate so it can close, but looks great having the original lock in.

Little bit of backplate cutoff to clear the frame.

The gold looks good. I did mine in similar colours, but silver.

Thanks Special!
Colour is meant to be brass but does have more of a gold look.

If you've read some earlier posts in this thread, I'm trying to work out the handle return. It seems mine is a different setup to most. Would it be possible to see some pics of yours?

Here are photos of the handle mech on my Clubmaster but I don't think it will help as mine is a simpler more basic style than yours seems to be.

Just had a quick look at mine, & it looks the same as Mr Coppin's.
