Quoted from dasvis:
How is that backglass film? I have seen his site while browsing bingo pin stuff & I have always wondered.
Here are some pics of the backglass film install. Looking at the condition of my old glass you can see why I needed it.
Here's a video the seller made showing how to install it.
Here are some pics of my install.
I used the wet method to install as recommend by the seller. He definitely does not recommend the dry method. I laid the film and new glass next to each on a towel. I cleaned the glass. I applied a liberal amount of water from a spray bottle onto the film as I peel it off its backing as well as the new glass itself. the mix was 1 bottle of water with 2-3 drops of dish soap. The seller says you can't use too much water.
The water lets you tweak and adjust the position. Once its centered you use a squeegee to get as much water out as possible. I was a little aggressive with the squeegee and created a few scratched in the clear area around the moon window. However its very minor. I wasn't able to get a good pic of it since it was so hard to see.
The film is wider than the glass so there is some clear film over hangs on all 4 sides. Once its dry for an hour or 2 then trim the excess off. Even though I cleaned the glass prior to install, I noticed a hair trapped under the film when I was trimming the edges. Now that the film is dry I don't think it can be removed without damaging the art. Luckily its very small and hard to see unless you really look for it. So while its still wet you should also flip over to the front to double check nothing is trapped between the glass and the film.
I think it looks great. Compared to the original the color is not exact but unless you had an original next to it I don't think you would ever notice the color difference. I'll definitely use him again if I need another glass that he has done.
When I attached the trim to the glass it was a little loose so I also put some friction tape on the edges. The trim is nice and snug now. Unfortunately the game isn't running yet so I can't see how it looks all lit up yet.
