I picked up a Space Shuttle a few weeks ago that had a new CPR playfield already installed in it. For numerous reasons (mainly OCD), I decided to tear it all down and do a full restore. While disassembling the top of the playfield, I noticed a small dimple in the playfield. The dimple is located just above the top most screw that connects the left metal inlane guide to the playfield (see pic). My guess is the four "pre" dimpled holes didn't align with the metal left inlane guide resulting in the top screw missing the dimple hole. Has anyone else observed this on a CPR playfield??? What's the best way to fix this dimple? Thanks for any/all help.

The tech that did the assembly did the right thing, and moved the lane guide to the center of the graphic. It would have looked odd off the the left side.

Fill the hole with "plastic wood" or a round toothpick, add one drop of navy paint, sleep well.

I'd do as vid said and maybe put a couple drops of super glue on top of the paint to lock it in. Plus, super glue can be sanded, waxed, and cleaned. Just my opinion.

Agreed, I think it is pretty close to center. I will fill in the dimple and make the best of it. Thanks.

Unrelated...I really liked your posts on how to get the repro ramps to fit better. Time to fire the router up.

That's the real man's way to do it.

Why not put a small washer over the dimples so the post could sit on it. That would cover the dimples and prevent the post from digging into the pf.

I suggested it because that's what I had to do to mine.
