    I saw somewhere on Pinside some instructions for how to cut and install a playfield protector that you have to custom cut due to low production of the machine, but I can't seem to find them now. Anyone know where they are?

    I'd like to know about this too.

    I imagine that if you can take an accurate scan of the playfield, you could CNC one (or, better, laser cutter). Or you could overlay a sheet and make cuts by hand. You just need to source a sheet of 0.5mm PET-G.

    This is what I did.
    Paper pattern

    Then cut with straight scissors and curved lexan scissors and body reamer (used to cut R/C bodies)

    Then final fit to install

    I think it came out pretty good
