Quoted from tslayer71:

So balls coming from the upper playfield are easily cradled with a raised right flipper which I think is normal. Ideas for making this more challenging? Different bouncy flipper rubber, lower flipper bat angle so harder to cradle, offset upper to lower playfield wire form so ball hits lower right flipper in different place?? Thoughts? Thanks!

Pretty sure it's a combo of the angle and the rubber. I don't think there's much adjustment from the feed wireform, and I wouldn't take too many liberties with it, they're not easy to replace.

Good point, from reading earlier posts seems like the wireform is a bear to get. I'll try flipper rubber and flipper angle and go from there....

Was wondering if a playfield protector would improve or hurt the look/play with a Mylar playfield? Saw that joeschall has used one and removed the Mylar but I'm not comfortable with this nice of a playfield. In process of a complete playfield tear down so now would be the time to put one on if it helps.

I've done two protectors already but one was a new playfield and one was on a diamondplate original. My biggest concern is the upper playfield has some mylar lifting that I don't want to disturb and protector won't likely help that.

Thoughts from anyone that has used one on their Black Knight 2000 ?

I tried to remove the mylar from one a long time ago and ruined it. Ended up doing a PF swap with a new one from Mirco over the summer and it looks great. Curious to hear about your experience with a protector if you go that route.

#655 18 days ago

I removed Mylar from mine and ruined all the inserts. I had to remove each insert, put in new sanded ones, replace the decals. Clear coat both top and bottom and then.... they ended up shifting somehow (I glued the hell out of them so I don't know). That made the clear move under the play field which made shit bumpy and me extra, extra pissed. That was all caused by dicking around with the mylar (I used the freeze spray method and was super careful but it still pulled up the edges of the inserts / the cracking on the insert decals didn't come off). The happy ending so to speak is that I installed one of those PF protectors from Germany and the bumpy issues I was having are gone for the most part and it makes the game look super nice (Sort of a glossy finish). Put a very light coat of novus 2 on the PF protector and it played just as fast as it did when it was on the regular play field.

My point being, leave the mylar alone unless you are some sort of expert and do put a pf protector overtop of it. It moves but barely I would highly doubt it would hurt the existing lifting.

Sorry to hear this tale of woe. Take heed, all. As they say -- "better" is the enemy of "good enough".

Ha Yup, just one of those things. Live and learn. If I was to go back I would have not touched the mylar at all! I'd say this is probably an extreme example (I had much much better results removing the mylar on my Pinbot). However I still lost some insert details (Small stuff but still). I personally would leave it alone!

Thanks guys. I haven’t had good luck either.

So playfield protector no? I’m torn as it will add a nice look and preserve but the Mylar isn’t going to wear any more than it has and won’t hide the typical issues of age anyway. It’s. It not my machine but want to recommend the best path forward as it was my own.

Wow that looks like a thorough tune up

Question: if you’ve already gone through the trouble of completely stripping the Playfield and cleaning/replacing everything over/under it why not install a new Mirco PF?

The owner preferred to not go to the expense and I agree with it being as nice as it is.

Makes sense! Looking forward to seeing it put back together.

Joined the club today. Couldn't find one locally so I had her shipped in. Little damage in shipping but otherwise she's looking good. Only had time to put one quick this morning but looking forward to dialing the machine in later tonight. Hoping I can find a red shooter rod replacement but #20-9253-4 seems out of stock everywhere.

Do you have any pics of what the translucent one looks like on your game?

Nope. I got it for my Deadpool. Looks just like the picture. I have a black one on my my BK2000. I had one on my CFTBL though, here ya go.
