    The backglass on my newly acquired Medusa has a small bit of flaking at the bottom. Should I leave this alone or do something to keep it from getting worse?

    You will want to seal that area with Triple Thick. Joann Fabrics has cans on this side of the Columbia River. You will only need to coat this area, not the whole backglass. Ensure to protect the score windows. This will prevent excess moisture from lifting any additional inkscreening.

    Keep flipping.

    Thanks! I thought that might be the case but wanted to hear from an expert.

    You also want to double check to ensure nothing is rubbing against this area of the backglass in conjunction with the light and score display panel.
