    Hello,

    I need advice on cleaning and waxing a playfield that has a protective thin overlay throughout the PF. Can I use novus 1 and a carnauva wax?

    What is recommended to use on this protective overlay (not sure if its mylar or a protective overlay film). I just don't want to use a product that will mess up the protective overlay. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Novus 1 and wax it is all you can really do, it's most likely Mylar.

    How's the heat in south TX?

    When cleaning or polishing an overlay be cautious when waxing using a power drill.
    Avoid excessive heat from friction pressure that can cause lifting of the adhesive.
    This is the same procedure as D1M.

    Thanks! Not using a drill....

    I got my first pinball LOTR about 6 months ago. I am looking at cleaning it for the first time. Do I have to take off the ramps and everything to clean and was or just the areas that are easily accessible???

    Personal preference I guess. Depending on how clean the machine looks I'd always say it is best practice to remove as much of the playfield parts as possible to give it a good clean so at least you know you're preventing as much future wear and tear as possible.
