Quoted from KevinCPR:

Williams HIGH SPEED II - The Getaway
Run is finished and shipping now. The classic translite converted into a real mirrored & silkscreened tempered glass, intended for complete replacement of the translite (if faded or shoddy) and/or a "pimp up" of the machine.
Stu's mirror bits are shown in our detailed photo gallery:
Available now in the Backglass section of the CPR Store:
Classic Playfield Reproductions

Outstanding work! Ordered.

I have paid 90% for my repro from Peter. Paid 100€ every two weeks since Feb. They are going to be ready around end of July. My original has lifting inserts and they effect game play. I also have some slight gouging in the back orbit from the ramp. Its playable tho. I will be doing a complete restore this winter on my HS2. Cab is beat, faded and all around worn. I have been collecting all the replacement parts for the last two years. Have Mountain, new plastics, supercharger, wire forms, coin door, rails, repro mirror backglass...and a shit tonne of other smaller pieces. Had her for 4 years she deserves the makover because she was the pin that got me back into this great hobby. Just pull the trigger Superbee and give your girl the final touch she needs!

Awesome! Grats! Put that in right away.
I will definitely contact you when I get stuck!

This will be my third complete tear down and replace. Take lots of pictures with HD camera. I take my time and it will probably take me 3 months after cab is redone

I have one coming too. The last I heard on 7 Oct, was that they were in the paint shop getting finished clear. So stands to reason that we are at least a month out...

Quoted from SUPERBEE:

Im wondering if i need to reclear it though. Worried about wear around the inserts. No one else with this issue ?

I will look at my Getaway PF that i got last month from Peter and let you know. I unwrapped it to check it out and didnt notice what you have seen. I put it back in its box and planned to pull it out this summer when I restore my Getaway.

So I just pulled my Getaway PF out and inspected it. I ran my finger over top of it and the only area I can feel slight bumps, is around the RPM and Redline inserts. Not all of them and I don't feel any bumps around any other inserts (rounds ones, free ride, bonus, jackpot, etc). I took a flashlight and shone it from the bottom of the playfield...no reflection off those inserts, which would indicate a significant raising or lowering. I have replaced two PFs in the past. One cleared by Bill Davis and one done by Mirco. Both had these slight raises on some inserts. I wasn't concerned. Once those PFs are in the machine and that ball rolls around during game play, the clear will flatten. I played the crap out of those two games and there was no damage what so ever around inserts. My advice, unless you have obvious cracking around the inserts (which you say you don't), is to install it and enjoy it. My original in game Getaway PF has insert clear cracking, raising, missing keylines and a couple significant gouges (looks like someone dropped a screwdriver right beside the upper right flipper). This actually causes a slow rolling ball to change direction. I can't wait until this summer to install this new repro. Believe me, I understand OCD, particularly when it comes to pinball machines, but in the case of my current repro that I got from Peter, I am still one happy camper.

Quoted from Jakusu:

Hi all. Just starting my Getaway restore hoping for help with a couple of things along the way.
Is this spring in the picture a retro fit or is it meant to be there?
Also I notice the flipper switches are just leaf spring type. The buttons had no springs in them is this normal as well?
As I plan to put illuminated ones in. Thanks for any help or advice.
PS I have a new playfield going in as well as discussed above which has been sitting flat for 3 months. Looks beautiful.

That spring does not belong there at all. Some hokery pokery going on there.
