Quoted from CaptainNeo:
ghosting you can't do anything about. No matter who you are. If you have a clearcoated playfield, ghosting can happen. Nothing anyone can do about it. Whether it's diamond plated, restored, or whatever. If there is some sort of clearcoat on it. The expanding and contracting of wood vs plastic, does create faults along the edges which can let air seep in.
the cracking on the other hand, looks like a weak fault in the plastic or someone dropped something on it.
I thought ghosting is something that happened over the course of years, like in my 20-year old Afm.
