I got a premium today and put some mylar on the lane before I played it.

#102 6 years ago
Quoted from goodgameslover:

So i don't get the sigh comment from Cliffy.

No offense intended. Just sighing because, even as you say yourself, it won't last forever against the hammering of a steel ball. No biggie though. To each their own

#103 6 years ago

Hey

Put on my Cliffy and tried to fix the shooter lane. Also put in a steel protector for the wood side rail

Pic attached. Pin is now much better protected

Play field is also getting some scratches and dimples from the cannon. So I put Vinyl down in front of the cannon. This game takes a serious beating and should have had an extra clear coat as it is not holding up as well as my year old Tron

looks like you got her leanin' a little

I think he has the bubble level mounted on the edge of the shooter lane protector. That is going to make the bubble have an error. The bubble level needs to me mounted away from the protector a fraction so there is no overlap.

#106 6 years ago

I would put a washer the same thickness under the top screw to level it.

#107 6 years ago

Could just drill a new hole and rotate the bubble level. That's what I did with my IM when I installed the protector.

#108 6 years ago

Yeh washer is under it. I need to change the washer out as I'm using a lock washer which is causing it to lean.

I'm not big on adding another hole if I do not have to. Very anal with my pins.

Cliffy arrived SUPER DOOPER FAST! Thanks Cliff!

Just wondering how the shooter lanes are holding up after some more use? also I noticed that the xmen playfields dimpled quite a bit- how are the ac/dc fields?

#111 6 years ago
Quoted from RobT:

I specifically mentioned that I had the exact same issue with my HUO SM (red).

ditto. lotr fine, CSI appears to be fine. SM shooter not so good. my 1979 Future Spa is fine too.

bumping a old thread......I ordered a new ac dc prem this week.... ordering the cliffy protector but wondering if you guys are seeing excessive wear on the shooter lane right after the protector.....thinking about mylar or hard as nails for that area before playing.....any feedback after you guys have played them for a year or so with a cliffy?

peace, B.

#113 4 years ago

I would use hard as nails or the "cling vinyl". The vinyl works great.

#114 4 years ago

This game has heavy traffic on the shooter lane as it's very multi-ball orientated.
You probably wouldn't notice any wear, but this is one of the games where Stern painted a design in there (the black and white paint) vs leaving the natural wood finish.
I have found that the cliffy side rail protector is enough to stop the balls from rattling around so that's all I've got on my pin and it seems fine.

#115 4 years ago

Would the metal ball hitting metal cliffy's damage the balls faster compared to wood which would soften the blow and absorb the impact?

I'm just curious if protecting a small wooden area with metal would cause your balls to wear at an increased pace and if not replaced more often could actually cause more damage to the overall playfield?

I put some Mylar on my Metallica Pro and would agree this is the easiest way to go. Good luck with the game!

I actually think it's easier to use several coats of hard as nails down rather than trying to fit a piece of mylar in there, and it looks better to boot.

#119 4 years ago

My BIBLE had exactly the same chipping as the OP's after a couple of 100 games. Cliffys arrived today which should do the trick of protecting the painted bit. Might leave a bit of Mylar in the rest of the shooter lane.

do you guys paint the hard as nails edge to edge top to bottom the whole shooter lane? or just where you see the wood revealed? I assume you use painters tape on the edges...

how do you keep it form dribbling in the lane switch slots?????
