How I redecal Pinball machines.

The first time I attempted redecalling I was super nervous as I didn't want to screw up my pinball or the expensive decals. I thought of all sorts of ways to apply the decals without stuffing the application up. As I redecal by myself this is the way that I devised to do it; it works for me and I am happy to always do it this way.

Note: Apply the front decal first with consideration for alignment of the side decals. This is especially important with Indiana Jones but not so with Fish Tales. BTW, I find the Indiana Jones decals to be thinner and slightly more prone to tearing.

Note also that I do NOT remove the wiring/header. I'm lazy and I feel that to do so smells like work which if I can avoid, I will.

There is a ton of sanding / scraping going on that has been reduced to a few seconds in the video. Indeed I had to drop a lot of footage to get the video to fit.

It takes about a full working day to redecal. This is just a hobby so the video is shot over several days at odd free hours.

Special thanks go to my favorite parts supplier, Illinois Pinball, http://www.illinoispinball.com, and especially Kim.
