    This is NOT, I repeat NOT to become a CPR slam thread. I am very pleased with their products and have a singular issue I am trying to resolve.

    Populating my first CPR repro and here's the problem I am having. The star rollover inserts were clogged pretty badly with clear coat. Not so bad if there's one or two but on BOPP there are 10. After cleaning them up as best I could, my test star still will not run flush to the playfield. After checking a bunch of my other populated fields I find it consistent that the star will go flush when rolled over. Makes sense as otherwise a direct hit would launch the ball. Not something I want to have happen. So the question I have is should it be flush? If not, is it the insert or the star? I have new stars from two different sources and compared them to some originals and they are identical. Any positive input would be appreciated.

    I did 3 things:
    Trimmed the holes as directed
    Put in trimmed down stars that didn't reach to the ends
    Used a very sharp exacto to trim around stars that still stuck after that. I would shave the insert until the star moved freely.

    I probably wasted as many stars as I left installed doing a captain fantastic with 8 rollovers

    I have not had the opportunity to use a cpr playfield, but in doing some of my own clearing with star rollovers one area that might need to be looked at is circled below, the bottom of the slot around the center. I did not see that addressed in the cpr instructions i found online. I used a fresh Xacto to cut and clear out that area to allow them to fully seat.

    Quoted from Cheddar:

    You trimmed the white star part? Is that what you are saying?

    Quoted from BorgDog:

    Right. I figured that was the biggest problem and cleaned it up as best I could.

    Thanks for the input, guys.

    A little figured it was less destructive than the insert

    You need to get some file files or a dremel with a diamond tip grinder and clean them out. It usually takes me 15 to 20 mins per insert to get them moving properly. The small files are the key.

    I cannot understand why they dont put upside down stars in those when applying cc. Would save SO much trouble.
