Hi guys - I put an overlay on my Strikes and Spares (first time). Put new rollover inserts in last night, and one of the holes must have had a tiny bit of old glue in one little spot because the insert is sitting up about 1/16". If that wasn't bad enough, it kinda pushed up a little bit of the overlay (it wasn't 100% dead nuts on all of the holes, apparently). I dry fit a couple of them before I epoxy'd them in because I was concerned about this, and there was enough clearance in the hole that they fit fine. Maybe I didn't push this one straight down or something.
Anyways, now I have this ridge. My first instinct was to just heat it back up, knock it out and re-seat it but.... I used the Harbor Freight 2-part epoxy, I don't know if that stuff loosens up like the original glue did, or if it will tear the overlay on the way out (my biggest concern). Or break the insert (no biggee, just get another one.)
My 2nd thought was to carefully try to grind that edge down w a dremel, but I dont see that ending well.
I'm going to clear the whole thing with 2Pac - part of me is thinking, well if I lay enough 2Pac on it, I can smooth that out..............that'll be a lotta clear though, but in the end might be the safest route? I don't want a playfield protector on it.
From a game play point of view, you cant really see it, but it will definitely affect ball travel if I don't address it. It's the insert on the far right, in the row of 3 pins (2nd row down).
Any ideas appreciated -
