vid1900 Ok, so disaster struck. I had cleared my playfield top and bottom for clear coating. I then prepped it and gave it nice "teeth" with 800 grit as it is written in the holy grail aka Vid's Guide to Ultimate Playfield Restoration.
I took it to a professional bodywork shop to do the actual clear coating, making sure to inform them in the ways of Vid. I did mention that there could be wax left that would cause fisheye even though all holes were Dremeled clean, surface sanded 800 grit and playfield wiped twenty times with 91% alcohol. Also that they should still make sure to wipe it again with Naptha before spraying as they naturally do anyway.
Long story short, see the photos for the result. The entire playfield is perfect except for these two areas.
Now what? How do I salvage this? Replacing the playfield is not an option, I am in South Africa so the R16 to $1 exchange rate and shipping cost makes it unaffordable.
My initial response was that they should have flooded the field so that all was even and then plenty sanding.
So I am collecting the playfield tomorrow morning and will start sanding with 500 grit on a large flat sander to get it down for another attempt, hopefully, any impurities are now locked in or displeased.
Can I use my orbital sander or is that too risky, go at it manually?
Any help advice and prayers will be appreciated.
