      Bummer but I hope you keep the thread going as I'm learning from the process and find it really interesting. Nothing to be embarrassed about, I'm impressed your giving it a red hot go! I'm wondering who you use to restore the playfield and rough costs involved. Shipping would be pricey I reckon? I've got a machine that I'm too frightened to remove the mylar but the playfield needs restoring.

        Thanks for the encouragement.. I'll get my mojo back.. might move on the cabinet for the time being.. surely I can't **** that up

          Always a risk removing mylar unless you know the life the machine has had. A machine that has been sitting in the sunlight for some of it's life is certainly one you don't want to attempt it on.
          Incredible the heat such machines have inside them under that glass and with little imagination, you can understand what it does to the paint.

          I think this is why some mylar removal jobs work out perfectly as planned while others end in disaster even though they had exactly the same process of removal done. I actually think it matters less on the process used and more on the machine's life as to whether you are successful or not.

          I guess the only real tell tales of such sun damaged machines would be warped playfield plastics but these may well have been straightened.
