Well that is different.....I had to double take as I thought you had put in kitchen worktop wood on the sides, but realised it was another wrap.....or I assume it is. :lol:

I have to admit wraps are certainly a good way in changing something, in theory multiple times without impacting the original surface. You could even change to the decor of your room... of course probably not practical in an arcade with people scratching away the surface...

Is that handle polished, as it came up well.

I think vinyl wrap has its place, I’ve used it on a bandit stand I made recently, but I have to say I prefer to see the original wood on sides of bandits, refurbished or not.
This is of course personal taste, and I think we all may have different likes and dislikes.
I’m only jealous really because I haven’t got a Clubmaster !!GRUMP!!

I only do the wrap if there is damage to the wood otherwise wouldn't touch it.
Tried to keep with the same colour, just a different pattern. It's really durable and hard to scratch. The handle I've done with a wire wheel, came up fantastic. Done the top front badge also and painted the front today so won't be long before it's finished hopefully.

The polished parts look great. Do they deteriorate after time?

Probably over time and if kept in the cold, but a coat of lacquer will give it a good seal, but as it will be kept nice and cosy I love the finish without the shine on it. :D

Fablon is best kept for kitchen knife drawers.
...Unless Lesley Judd says otherwise.

Brigham... :HaHa: :HaHa: :HaHa:

It will be coming off before I sell it but if it looked tatty the wife wouldn't let it in the house. Apart from trying to find some locks, I don't know wether to repaint the the badges red as it looks like it needs a bit of colour in the middle.
Should I also put a light in as I'm not too sure as it would only light the reels? There is a hole in the back panel, so easy to do, but I've not seen one lit up.

Looking good....I would paint the badges background with some red enamel paint, like the originals, makes it stand out more.

Not sure these ever had lights. The next generation of machines in the Sheerline/Starlite, seemed to have lighting as an option and had proper connectors fitted to the rear, rather than a hole. Personally I wouldn’t put lighting in, but your preference...

The hole in the back, does this match in position with the hole in the front casting you have plugged. I am intrigued by it and wonder if they are related and either someone shot the machine or something went right through.....maybe a locking bar or something :!?!:

Cheers tf, yes the holes do line up so I'm guessing some sort of locking device. I have not found any sign of old lighting, so will leave it with no light. I can always use a stick on battery light. :HaHa:
