Thanks Ben.Looks really good Ant, a real transformation seeing everything coming shiny and new!
Can I ask a couple of Qs on your cabinet re-decal?
I presume the wet method is using a water/washing up liquid mix which lets you reposition the decal slightly if it needs a tweak, then squeegee the liquid out? When you trim the decals is it just a case of using a steel rule a couple of mm in from the edge of the cabinet and running a stanley knife down it?
I'll be doing my WW decals soon and just want as much info as possible before I dive in and do it!
This is the first pin I’ve restored but I’ve fitted a few new decals to some arcade cabs and I’ve used both the dry method and wet method in the past and the dry method IMO is too risky.
Ive previously used some water and a bit of washing up liquid, but for my T2 I tried out a product I bought from a local signage company. Supposedly it’s what they use in the trade when applying signage to vans etc.
Basically I lined up the new decal and double checked I was happy with the placement and then weigh one side down. I just spray the area down and apply to new artwork, repositioning if needed and then squeegee all the excess liquid out.
Once fitted I immediately use a metal rule and trim a couple mm off all the edges before the glue has time to really dry.
