I possibly have access to a state of the art digital flatbed printer, and was thinking, wouldn't it be possible to reprint a damaged playfield with it?
So I started to look around if someone else had the same bright idea, but all I could find was a page by Ed Chueng from a few years ago ( http://www.edcheung.com/album/album07/Pinball/ss_pfb.htm ).
The upper playfield on my recently acquired Black Knight 2000 is pretty badly damaged, and because it is relatively easy to remove, I thought it might make a good candidate to try it.
Would this be a good game plan?
- Scan the existing playfield (as a last resort, if no one has a high res image)
- Sand down the existing playfield
- Spray one or two layers of clearcoat
- Mask the inserts and sides of the playfield, spray paint it white, remove masks
- Spray another one or two layers of clearcoat
- Print the playfield
- Finish with clearcoat
Does anyone have experience with this? Looking forward to your opinions, ideas, tips etcetera
