>How did you do that?

The only part I did was buy the piece from a seller on ebay many years earlier and I then handed the backdrop piece to Mr. Do for eventual artwork support.

Someone will have to take an interior photograph of the cab for starter and then a rear photo of the back interior cab after back door is opened. These would be cab reference photos before carefully removing backdrop piece......assuming backdrop artwork piece can be removed from cab without the backdrop piece being damaged. If backdrop piece is stapled or bolted inside cab, not worth removing for a closeup photograph because backdrop piece being brittle plastic might break into pieces if not carefully removed.

If possible, it is better to find a spare parts piece from a discarded cab like I was able to do since the backdrop piece I bought came from an upright Midway Tornado Baseball cab that was no longer repairable, but the spare parts that could be salvaged were likely purchased by others to repair other Tornado Baseball cabs at the time. The Midway Tornado Baseball backdrop piece I had purchased was also in poor deteriorating condition and probably not usable for restoring a different Midway upright Tornado Baseball cab.
