      UPDATE:

      Ok, I took all comments on board and got stick into stripping the playfield. All the plastics and metal posts etc have been removed, bagged and labelled. [emoji736]

      There were a couple of sections of Mylar that had already lifted and so I was going to trim it back and clean around it. With a bit of careful pulling the Mylar came off super easy (initially, even without the use of a hairdryer) and (in a discrete section) did not take any paint off whatsoever.

        To remove ball swirl , magic erasers and isocol (rubbing alcohol)
        You can buy it from Woolworths..

        Just be careful as you can loose the art work very quickly...

          UPDATE:

          Removed all the plastic posts and put them through the top drawer of the dishwasher in the cutlery basket. They were pretty good but I finished them off by scrubbing with a toothbrush in soapy water to get all the rubber goo off. Now they look great! [emoji92]

          Also soaked all the metal playfield parts in vinegar to get rid of rust etc.. Had to meticulously bag (containerise) them up to keep track of what goes where:

            As an aside, does anyone know how long it takes for rubber to turn rock hard? It would be interesting to know and would help me approximately date when the machine was last serviced.....

                Playfield has been given a serious clean as well, a three step process:

                I primarily used the flour and isopropyl alcohol method to remove the mylar glue which worked a treat:

                    Wow ! That playfield looks great now!
                    I have had success using tea tree oil to get rid of ball swirl in the past.

                    Look forward to more pics of your progress.

                      Just visiting from your tech support thread on the game. Looking forward to the day I can bring mine out of storage and work on it but until then, seeing your game pictures bring me a smile

                      I have an updated ROM for the game that fixes a factory spinner scoring bug, removes some of the dead ends in the game and adds some other features. PM me if you're interested.

                        The coin door also needed a few extra days in the bath as I realised it had been sprayed with silver paint and started to flake away. After a number of days I ended up using paint remover and it accelerated the process considerably! Both bits came up very nicely, not perfect, but aged and presentable, just the way I likes it!

                        I also found that the 4th and 5th target were missing their clevis pins. The 4th was affixed with a cable tie and the fifth loose! [emoji33]

                        I had trouble sourcing clevis pins of this size locally so I sorted a work around from a hardware store. Hopefully the e-clip and screw will suffice until I order the correct parts....

                          Then the moment of truth/the big power up arrived! I put all the boards back in (thanks [MENTION=434]Skybeaux[/MENTION]) and the sweet new LED displays from Tangles.......
                          SUCCESS! No explosions or fire, we have lights and sound and some working coils!

                                Only just realised it is you, Zac! If this is going in your bar, then take the posts out as I suggest but set it to 5 ball (ball times will be v short) and make specs worth a credit, with no limit on them (but limit max credits in general settings to 5). This way you will get people hooked with the rush of winning free games. This is the machine I learnt on as a 12yo and boy did I get hooked on the sight of that bright red light. Better than sex!
