Looks great ! ! !
As far as the anti-cheat bars are concerned, I would lubricate with silicone spray using the straw tube tip to get lubricant where you need it and not everywhere else.
One issue to be wary of is the "stop" for the anti-cheat bars located on the far left at the last bar. If this machine had heavy use, this stop plate will wear allowing the cheat bars to return to the left position a little further than they should. When this happens, the rounded side of the anti-cheat bars do not line up properly for the pull knob slides and cause the knob to stop because the slanted side of the pull slide doesn't properly align with the rounded end of the anti-cheat bar allowing them to slide right/left blocking the other pull knob slides.
This is one of the many issues I check prior to disassembly, re-plating, powder-coating so ensure everything is functioning properly. If not, fixes or modifications can be performed prior to restoration!

Any advice on painting the candy marquee, attempt myself or signwriter.
Having trouble getting any sign writers to respond to such a small job.

Sign painter is the only way to go; just be sure you have a good painter!
You may have to take the marquee to them and leave it with them...

Sign writer should have marquee back to me next week sometime, restoration is coming to an end.
When removing the old mirror it looked as if there was either sponge or double sided tape top and both sides.
What is normally used when installing a new mirror (one of Jims).
I added very thin brass shims on either side protecting the paint when installing the vending rack.

We utilize felt pad stickers on the back of the mirror.
Try and locate the thin green version that are approx. 1/2" diameter.

Thanks Jim, I take it they are stuck onto the mirror itself.
