Hi everyone!
i am on the project Gorgar restoration.

My playfield is sanded down, cleaned, flat.
The overlay i have ordered from Classicarcades.
Unfortunately i don have any documentation/hint how should i apply the overlay.

The overlay is not transparent so if i put on the playfield i dont see how should i mount it.
On the other videos what i have watched they had a transparent overlay (by the bumpers, slingshoot one can see the holes and put exactly on the place)
so they could fix with a tape in the middle (or the end) then starts to mount it slowly.

Maybe this is a stupid question but this is the first time i do such an operation.
Should i cut the overlay with a scissor along the graphic or punch the holes before apply it ???

Thanks in advance!

Maybe this helps:

especially : "Use a bright light (very bright LED, avoid halogen work lights) from below shining through the inserts to help align the overlay. Hold in place with Blue Painters Tape- it's easy to lift for re-positioning"

thanks but still not clear.
According to the manual only the bottom area below the flipper should be cut before monunting it
but i think maybe all of the "wooden pintout" should be removed.
The switches and drop targets also a question before mounting or after ...
As i heard if i cut it before mounting then will be not sticked as good as the original condition.

What did you end up doing?

The overlay is garbage. Super thin and the white areas are see through when applied. Had one for my Bally KISS and big waste of money. Filed a claim and got my money back.

Not a huge overlay fan. I just bought a new Gorgar pf from Mirco. I have been impressed with the quality.
