Keep these photos/posts coming Scott, I find them quite inspiring. I'm also keeping the seams on my GC1.

According to what I found on a web search, the playing surface should be between 29 1/4" - 31" but more senior members here, will know for certain.

Cool, thanks. I'm in the ballpark.

He also painted the spanner section white, but I think it would have looked better with the wood grain on the spanner.

As to fish eyes, the actual cause is left over silicone and or waxes on the finish to be painted. Very hard to get all traces off with a simple sanding and wipe down before first coat of paint, only takes a trace. They do make special solvents to use with the wipe down before your first paint coat, or they also make an additive that you can add to your paint before spraying, that will help reduce the surface tension. If you already have it, yes then the correct step would be to sand it back somewhat and respray. And 400 grit would be nice, but depending on the depth, you may need to start with 320, and finish with 400. If it is orange peel, and not fish eye, thats something totally different, and usally caused by a misadjustment of your spray gun, as it relates to the amount of air to the thickness of the paint.

The strange thing is I painted the pedestals, runner, ball box and skirts using the same prep: vacuum, damp cloth followed by a tack cloth. Zero fish eyes on any of those pieces. Weird.

Second coat laid down without incident. I spot sanded the fisheyes by hand with 400 then hit the entirety of the panels with 320 using my orbital sander. It came out nice; no sanding marks or fish eyes. I'll scuff and shoot coat 3 in the morning.

Nope! I need some color. The Brunswick Blue and Brunswick Tangerine scream '60's. Love them both but I like Brunswick Blue a little more.
