Quoted from vid1900:

Classic Arcade decals with the protective top layer

Question for you vid since you seem to know these pretty well, are these classic arcade decals pretty thick almost like a vinyl feel to them? I just peeled a set of thick decals off the F14 I picked up a while back because they were actually affecting the ball travel, especially at the bottom of the playfield where the alpha, beta, charlie, etc. inserts are. Inserts underneath were all flush save for one or two, so it was definitely the thickness of the decals causing the ball movement. Just curious if you think these are the same or if maybe the ones that were on my game were from elsewhere and maybe the classic arcade decals wouldn't have the same effect. The game plays much better now with those decals removed temporarily. I'm doing a full teardown/touchup/clearcoat this fall/winter, so I will need to get some of the thin water slide decals instead. Do you know of a source for a good quality set of these? Thanks!

It wasn't bad when the ball was moving fast on hard shots, etc., but when the ball was slow esp. near the bottom of the pf by the flippers where you have a bunch of inserts all close together I did notice it enough that it bugged me. Then again I'm probably more anal about that than many others might be.

Yup, exactly. I've been playing it without the insert decals for a few weeks now (except the ones under mylar) and don't plan on replacing any of them until the restore. It plays much better now than it did with those thick decals imho. I love the speed of this game and can't wait to see how much faster it is with a full clearcoat!
