Well, while I build funds for pin #3, I'm embarking on a wall art project for a beater Eight Ball Deluxe LE playfield. I have the playfield, backglass, and Airfield LED kit for an integrated light show & attract mode.
The plan is to lift the mylar, clean & sand, touch up the art, and clearcoat. Once the playfield is ready to hang, I'll install the LEDs and board and somehow mount the backglass to the playfield. Not sure how I'm going to do that part yet.
The playfield arrived today -- typical beater playfield. Mylar was (badly) cut and set on top of the playfield after significant wear. I removed the top half of the mylar... along with much of the paint. I'll have to touch up much more than planned.
Tomorrow I remove the remaining mylar and clean/sand everything to prep for painting.
The goal is not to have a collector's quality playfield, but have some fun and end up with something neat to look at in the gameroom. Wish me luck!
