Quoted from jwilson:

Some people, like myself, feel that clearcoating and polishing the back of the game is taking things to an absurd level.
My *personal* opinion is that this game is way, way over the top with the chrome everything and polished clearcoat cabinet and that it kind of defeats the spirit of the game by transforming a functional commercial machine into a display object that many would be hesitant to even play. Sort of the pinball equivalent of a "trailer queen," a show car that is only rolled on and off a trailer at car shows and is never actually driven. I prefer HEP restorations that bring games back to new as though they were coming fresh out of a box, but don't go overboard into clown puke LEDs, light-up everything, playfields full of plastic toys and crazy toppers.
Normally I wouldn't say so in a thread like this in the spirit of keeping needless negativity down, but since you asked I thought I would answer.

Considering that a car sitting out unloved for 15 years can still be shined up to look pretty good, I'd say that those who CC everything are ahead of the game when it comes to having their games beaten on. Keep plastics available and these games will probably look good forever in a home environment.
