    I wasn't sure if this should be a tech post, and I promised some more pictures of my Cyclone, so I figured I'd post here (besides I just posted a GI questions there anyway). If this is incorrect, I apologize and please move.

    Anyway, here are the wear issues I'm dealing with. I have not started to clean the playfield yet. When I tested some spots with Novus, it was disgusting, so before I magic eraser all that ball swirl, I guess I have to give it a general cleaning.

    The worst of the wear is right outside the spook house. Also some in the back of the playfield too. How should I deal with these (without going the CPR route)? I'm not looking for collector quality, but I would like to clean her up and make her more presentable.

    While I'm on the subject of wear, just for the heck of it, a picture of my busted Comet ramp; held together by expoxy but I have a set of mantis protectors for it. However, the spook house ramp is in great shape (for now, anyway).

    Thanks, guys. I think I will just clean and wax it; I'm a horrible artist so if probably make the game look worse if I attempt to touch it up. Will a good waxing protect it from getting any worse (after a good cleaning)?

    Thanks very much all. Very helpful! I think I will just leave it alone for now after a good cleaning and waxing. I'm going to have to go very very gently with the magic eraser when I'm near those areas I'd imagine. What's this stealth Mylar? Maybe if I clean and wax it good it's worth a small piece over the wear to prevent further?
