Hi guys,

Today i received my first NIB game Transformers LE. I know it does not rank that high and many people don't think much of it but i think it really looks awesome.

I have one question and did not know in what sub forum to post it. What do you guys put on a new playfield? wax? nothing? something else?

ok so i have to buy a bottle of carnauba and novus 2. thnx! do i have to clean the playfield with novus before i put on the wax for the first time? only like 5 games played lol

Thanks for all the advice! I will buy new balls and wax the playfield.

One more question. My dmd is red. I noticed on the internet they are usually orange?

Thanks again for all the replies!

I have bought carnauba based wax. So i will play to about 100 games and then apply it?

Ik ben al een tijdje lid van de vereniging alleen dit jaar nog niet in het clubhuis geweest al hoorde ik van Arie dat het nu dicht is voorlopig door problemen met de gemeente?

ok i have applied my wax yesterday evening. The playfield really feels smoother even though it was brand new. It plays even faster lol.

Quoted from metahugh:

Make sure to put down Mylar at the ball drops off the returns for the ramps, Stern does not install it from the factory on the left side iirc.

Do you mean at the place by the lanes?
