For those that have a Sega Astro City, knows how dull and lifeless the marquee can look.
I came across possibly one of the best Sega Astro City restoration thread on Arcade Projects by FluxChiller who had restored his marquee to a quality that made it look brand new!
I wanted this for my Astro Cities too 😀 so I purchased some adhesive vinyl gels from https://www.thevinylspectrum.com/.
The direct links are as follows:
- Yellow – T021 Yellow 8300 Sheet
- Blue – T049 King Blue 8300 Sheet
- Pink – T077 Telemagenta 8300 Sheet
- Green – T063 Lime-Tree Green 8300 Sheet
Once the vinyls arrived, I created a template to use and place on the vinyl, no fancy cricut machines or cnc’s, just good old hand cutting 🙂
The gels are adhesive, so all you do is peel the backing off and apply it straight onto the marquee and before you know it, the whole marquee is done
To give a visual representation of the difference these little gels make, here’s the before
Across three Astros, they definitely make a massive difference!
