I am new owner of a Hot Tip game and the playfields are know to wear out near the kick out. Just wondering what I can do keep it from getters worse?

Short of restoring the whole playfield, you could touch up the areas and spot clear or apply mylar to protect.

If you have any art abilities that could be touched up nicely . Color matching is key. I have waxed over my touchups w/no issues. It might not be perfect, but it will be better IMO..........

Because it's chipping off, just waxing will not protect it from further damage--the damaged area will just keep getting larger.

You can mylar or clear it just to prevent further damage. Or, you can fill the holes and touch it up, then mylar or clear it.

Quoted from ForceFlow:

If you use mylar, it's going to be forever. If the mylar is ever removed I would bet a lot of paint is going to come off.

I would spot clear it.
