Does anyone make or have or can make a overlay for the upper playfield on an Elektra ..these are badly needed there are a lot of worn out upper playfields

#2 4 years ago

I haven't heard of one.
How bad is your PF?
I am planning to airbrush mine.

#3 4 years ago

I have one with a little wear on my working one ..I have an extra really worn one someone could use to make an overlay for sizing and such

#4 4 years ago

I thought it would be cool to just have a decal to cover worn ones

#5 4 years ago

I'd be keen on an overlay if one was produced.

Overlays are crap no real restoration has one installed its a ghetto way to cover a problem, Just send the upper to a good restorer

Elektra #overlay

#10 2 years ago

some information to this overlay:
it was printed on a clear film and has an protection layer on top.
if you want to stick it on the playfield, you first have to brush it white.
this helps to make the printed colour to be more brilliant. after brushing
the playfield needs some layers of clearcoat to get a smooth surface.
to prevent damaging the overlay it is necessary to cut out all areas for
posts and similar stuff.

Did t want to start a new thread. Is this something that is available now?

They were available. My Elektra came with two of these. I may use one but could probably sell the other.

#16 36 days ago

i think i can make some overlays in two weeks.
how many people are interested?

heinz

#17 36 days ago

I want one.

Just print a bunch and make them available on ebay or sell the lot to a distributor to make available. The reality is, people don't need it till they have a game that needs it; so your orders will be sporadic.

That said, I think there would be need for the lower PF as well. Perhaps you could sell as a set?

#19 36 days ago

I would take one as well really need the overlay for the upper
PM me with how I can get one
Thanks

I got one of these from him a while ago and although it is not perfect it is VERY good, the “10” has to be added to the overlay maybe he has fixed that but printing I got I had to add that.

It was a different kind of material overlay than I have seen in the past.

I clear coated mine after install. I no longer have my machine but it all worked out.

You can’t beat the price since no other options are out there.

#28 33 days ago

Thanks for the link. Looks like the 10 still has to be adjusted. How did you accomplish this?

Thanks for this. Are you interested in doing the same overlay for the lower Play-field? I would order one immediately. Thanks

#31 26 days ago

I missed getting one.

#32 23 days ago

Here is the overlay I did - I no longer own Elektra - it turned out ok, I did clear coat it after I was done.

It is not the easiest project but it was great when done.

OMG

your overlays are on the way to the USA and Kanada,
but there is a small issue....
i forgot to sign the Customs declaration
now i do not know what will happen.
i had to stop the ebay auction in case your overlays will not arrive.
Please excuse the inconvenience and please send me a short reply in case you receive your overlays.

the parcel tracking says that all parcels have arrived in the US.
is that correct?
The Canadian package is still on its way.

My friend got his on Monday, thanks! That was from the first Ebay batch of the two if it matters.
