I swapped mine with an original playfield and it wasn’t bad at all. Glad I didn’t have to work with a micro or cpr in this case. My cabinet was discolored but solid with little to no damage except a bump in the top corner on one side of the backbox. I got it for $1800 and it came with the replacement clear coated playfield. Old and new playfield.

It technically wasn’t NOS. It was installed in a different unit previously. It’s not perfect but clearly better than the other one lol

Quoted from HydrogenHuman:

Aah, the classic busted ramp and chipped yellow pop bumper. Cliffy protector should take care of that!

Pretty sure that pop bumper is designed that way as a half so it doesn’t hang over the ramp area. You can buy them for Addams Family. The yellow one like Whirlwinds you can’t get anymore.

Great...Makes me wish hardtops would eventually be made for Whirlwind.

How bad is your original playfield? May be worth having it restored and cleared. That’s what I did with mine and it’s great
