Ooooh, why do I get goose bumps looking at that picture??
I think many of the people new to the hobby are acquiring older SS pins; which are probably in much need of good cleaning. It is likely that these were not diamond plated and definitely require a little more work to obtain a good shine. For kits like Treasure Cove you really wouldnt want to use anything more than the light-cut. For the lucky ones who have low-played games it is much easier to keep the playfield cherry. Love that glossy wet look. Ooh-rah.
