Project:Track and Field
Project Started:2/2/2004Project Status:Sold

Goal of Project:
Repainting this commonly damaged game.
Total restoration of a Track and Field cab that was caked with many layers of paint. Restoration done during the weekend of March 14, 2003. Paint was matched from an original sample found behind the marquee, paint codes located on my paints page. Process involved removing all original paint, repairing some faults that were made by using 10 penny nails! Fixed a couple corners with bondo, polished and painted all bolt heads that went in the sides black to match the flyer, all bolt heads in the front blue for the same reason, new T-molding and it's ready to go!

I'd love to know where you got that Centuri logo. That is a really neat addition to the restoration.

Many track and fields had this kind of coin door.. just gotta search for it on ebay I guess.

Did your track and field have offset t-molding? If so, where did you buy some?

Was the t-mold slot on this cabinet offset? The track&field; cabinet I have has a 3/4 inch slot, but slightly offset. If yours is also offset, what did you do for the t-mold?

Nobody makes a 100% match, but Arcadeshop does sell an offset tmolding that I was able to make work.. it's not perfect, but works. also sells it.

For those of us who don't have sprayers, would foam rollers work and produce good results? Did you sand this cabinet or use a stripper?

I sanded it smooth, primed and sprayed. Honestly, I hate rollers but in a pinch you can get OK results.. never as good as sprayed though. Just put the paint on in many very thin layers with a hard foam roller
