Does anyone know where i could find Mylar that has a transparent backing instead of a solid color backing? I'm restoring a MGOW and wanted to lay a whole sheet over the playfield and wanted it to be clear so I can lay the whole sheet down on top and be able to mark everything that needs to be cut out before sticking it down. Thanks

maybe do it on tracing paper and then transfer it?

I would think it would be easier to just apply it then cut out the openings, rather than tracing, cutting it out, and trying to get it to line up.

Otherwise you could scan your playfield and get someone to laser cut or cricut you a pattern.

I'd stick it down first, then cut out what needs cut out.

That's probably what'll I'll do, I already got a whole roll of it been using it to make stencils of the art work on the cabinet.
