Well that took a bit to read up to here! That's whats good about the fireplace, a bottle of wine, and a cat.

I really like the flow, chimes, and art of the EMs and so I've got some... and a EM book, dvd, friends, plus You/internet, some tools and products! But I'm just getting started in my learning.

Been reading on the proper cleaning techniques and what I'd quite appreciate is your breakdown of cleaning. Got the rings and bulbs but while we're here , clear and wax or something more?

more pics to follow, but first, True Grit in the Wild Wild West, partner.

Hope this isn't too off topic but this Wild Wild West has a lot of grit on it. Pinball Rehabs guide to precleaning and removing the grit has made sense and I know there are the clean&wax videos on pinside but a question- the bulb holes and post holes in other people's cleaning pics seem to have little plugs in them. What's recommended to keep crud out of the holes while cleaning and waxing? My plan is to vacuum with a soft brush, clean the posts, plastics, dividers, and flippers with mean green, ZEP HD citrus for the playfield, magic eraser and isopropoyl alcohol for the problem areas, Pinnacle paintwork cleansing solution, canuba wax, and Krylon3 for the backglass. Anyone want to offer anything else? I don't think the inserts are too bad and I don't think I'm up to mylar or coating the playfield at this point.
