Picked up a decent ES a few months back. Played nice but needed a good cleaning. Started out simple enough but once I got in there I kept taking more and more off the play field. At this point, the cabinet is completely stripped waiting for new decals, most of the parts have been run through the cleaner and tumbler, and new ramps/plastics have been bought.
So, I need a sanity check on how far to take the play field. Its in nice condition with mylar covering a decent portion of it. After some cleaning with Novus 1, 2, and magic eraser and alcohol, it looks pretty nice. Some ball swirl and some paint wear in a few spots outside the mylar. There are some small bubbles in the mylar around some of the inserts.
Im not looking to do a complete, museum restoration but since I have it torn down Im not afraid of pulling the mylar, getting in to some pain touch up, or anything else that seems like a good idea. Also, if it is in good enough shape and it would be worth sending it out for clear coat I wouldn't rule it out.
Ive attached some photos of where Im at now with the play field. Any advice on where to go and how far would be great. This is the first machine Ive taken down to this point and so far it hasn't been too bad. Just hoping it all goes back together at some point and I can get back to playing it.
