Here is a short video of me removing cabinet art from my Indiana Jones pinball machine. You first remove the art and then you remove the adhesive.

Important point: The original art is *not* a decal on the majority of machines from this era. It is vinyl that was applied to the wood from the factory and then screen printed directly onto that surface versus a separate decal (art/vinyl combination) that was applied to the wood. This is why the art is so hard to remove.

You need the following items:

1. Adhesive Stripper (Citristrip rocks!)
2. Heat Gun
3. 3" wide scraper
4. A bucket of Patience

Between the heat gun and the scraper you can get the decals off. Then apply some adhesive remover to the cab and let sit for 30 minutes. Citristrip is the best, safe to use indoors and smells great :) Use the scraper to remove all of the adhesive.
