Mr. Pinball Tip:

When restoring Gottlieb roto-targets be sure to mark on the back of each target the value the target represents before disassembling. Otherwise you will have to test each target to determine what value it represents. That testing can be terribly inconvenient when the assembly is in pieces during restoration!

Target faces should be stripped and then painted with the background color using enamel. The symbols can then be applied using vinyl lettering, or for certain games, stickers can be applied without the need for a background color. Stickers for King of Diamonds are available from several suppliers.
