Pinball Refurbish – Cleopatra part2

The tear down…

Well I got started removing parts from the playfield tonight just thought I would post a few before pictures… the wear really isn’t that bad, its dirty as all get out but the outholes have seen better days and the inserts are cupped to no end.

I cleaned the surface once all the parts were removed with a Magic Eraser and some 90% alcohol, I used very little pressure and just wanted to get the dirt out. It will remove paint if scrubbed too hard.

From a painting and playfield touch up guide this Jumping Jack restore has to be one of the best I’ve seen, sorry I couldn’t find the owners name, nice work! I’ve been trying to follow it and I think I can solve the cupping problems now that I’ve read his guide.

What would we do without digital cameras… There’s really not much to say to take a lot of pictures so you can put it all back together.
