Wondering if the 1shot ivory is the best paint match or are there any other recommendations? The arm going up next to the reel strip seems like it should go up on the right side of the discs and do something behind the escalator or? Any input or pics and thanks.

Reading a little more on this from previous forum posts. Should I just clean it up and leave it original?

Hi Drishoff.
In my opinion you should redo the white but leave the red and blue paint if you know it is original paint!
The arm actually lines up with the the hole just to the right in the gooseneck casting, seems like yours just bent out of shape a touch!
A nice Dime Kitty, you have there!!

also use some very fine grade steel wool to bring lustre back to the shiny bits and don't change those original reel strips, they are too good to swap out. I think the award card is too far gone though!

The award card is "homemade" so definately replace it!
