Looks great, well done Ully  Smiley

But are you confident about the paint layers? I mean, following that picture for instance  arrow



...what if you touch with your fingers the 'dark green' layer under the "T", does it will peel off easily or does it look "strong" enough to resist?

thx a lot for all the nice comments, guys, i love the outcome as well and the combination of those two colors really kicks ass! Kiss

Hey Ully ... sorry, but where are the paint problems  Huh?

i did a looot of testing in between on spare pieces of wood with spare stencils i had lying around - that's why putting on the final layer took that long. as you can see on some of the pictures, there is still some "stuff" at various places in the paint, but i can live with that. perhaps i should take out the vacuum cleaner more often Tongue

one of the reasons why i would love to have a professional setup! after all, this is not going tobe my last paint job ...

But are you confident about the paint layers? ...what if you touch with your fingers the 'dark green' layer under the "T", does it will peel off easily or does it look "strong" enough to resist?

very confident indeed! the layers are thick, the paint is not cheap home depot stuff, but durable professional paint, so no chance in hell this would simply peel of by touching it. nevertheless, once the cabinet has been re-assembled i'm planinng on shooting everything with one final layer of clear to give it some kind of protection. the difficult thing will be getting the cabinet back together without scratching the art, i'm somewat scared of that job!

the restoration continues ... with the base

when i got the game, the base looked horrible and was falling apart from moving the cabinet around without leg levelers





i fixed the damages to the main wooden board and replaced the rest with new parts. i also created a set of leg levelers to prevent any further movement damage in the future!



putting the puzzle pieces together







more stability by using freshly-painted l-brackets



let's glue those two final pieces together



wheels reinstalled



base re-construction arrow done!!! Smiley





thx a lot for that comfortable new resting place Kiss



up next: re-assembly of the cabinet Space Ace Space Ace Space Ace

to be continued ...
