On Paint & Colors for re-painting a Space Shuttle Pinball Cabinet

Here’s the colors I settled on for re-painting my Space Shuttle cabinet – all are Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch 2X Ultra Cover:

  • Flat White Primer
  • Gloss Navy Blue
  • Gloss Apple Red
  • Gloss White
  • Matte Clear


They will be painted in that order. A couple other things to note: First, I tried to find a single vendor/type of paint that had all the colors I needed to avoid mixing different types of paint. I’m going to be painting color-on-color to do the artwork, so keeping it to one type of paint minimizes the chances the paints will react badly with one another. Second,  I’m painting with gloss colors but using a matte clear. I’d much rather be painting with matte colors and avoid using clear altogether, but unfortunately I couldn’t find the colors I wanted in matte, only gloss. Using gloss colors and finishing with a matte clear is the next best thing, at least that’s my theory! I’ll test this out on a sample piece of wood before committing to it on the real cabinet 🙂
