Custom Projects

All my custom games use the same process...
I start with a donor machine from the 1950's-1970's and strip the exterior completely (cosmetically).  A base coat is applied to the exterior and then the designs are painted using professionally cut stencils (similar to what was done during the era of the donor machine) that I create in CAD.  The playfield and backglass is also designed in CAD and then color / images are added using a graphics package.  Finally, they are printed at a sign shop.  All mechanical mechanisms are cleaned, repaired and / or replaced.  Electrical parts are replaced as needed and all playfield parts are brand new.
