Here is a pic of part of the play field on my Royal Guard. The rest of the play field is just as bad. I had every intention of repainting and putting a few coats of clear to protect it but the more I read and look at this I'm wondering. I would like some suggestions. Is this salvageable? should I just put a couple of coats of clear and just enjoy the game? I just don't know. My skill level is below average which is why I'm asking. This is a big job. All suggestions would be much appreciated.
Thanks Rufus

why do anything? Give it a good cleaning, put down carnuba wax and play some pinball.

i agree with the previous post. i would just play it the way it is.

I’d fill the inserts first I think looks like the ball might get hung up

I strip the playfied and try to touch it up the best I could then clear it. My touch up skill are poor, but at least it would be flat. Royal Guard is a good game.

Thanks for all the reply's. Royal Guard is a good game, very challenging. The ball certainly doesn't run true. If I just clear coat would I fill the inserts first and then clear? Won't the clear coat fill the inserts? I'm new to all this.
