Fading is not bad at all on that side. How's the other side?

Lookin' good! Might be a twin of mine with the new cab decals, rottendog and same leg protectors. Hope you got a better dummy plastic than me though. I put a new decal on my wheel recently due to a couple small scratches, man was it a pain getting the old one off.

New playfield.... found a payfield that was pulled from a machine that has been in storage for 15 plus years. Great condition , no wear and best of all no mylar. I think a lot of hurricanes were produced with full mylar on the playfields

Nice, what was wrong with your old one? The Diamond Plates seem pretty tough. Mine didn't have any Mylar except for 2 ugly half moon ones by the slingshots. I decided to freeze them off and luckily all went well. Looks much better now.

Looks beautiful. Did you fabricate the metal clip/tab for the big ramp above the right inlane? My tab is slightly cracked but still holding fine...that looks like a pretty solid repair.
