Quoted from Khabbi:

Problem with asking on this forum is most aren't true Kiss fans, and this is a Kiss fan question, not a pinball collector question.
As a Kiss fan...

Gentle ribbing ahead!

So which Kiss member is your avatar? LOL!
Up the irons!
Rock on sir.

One thing to keep in mind is shipping and temperature changes. It's winter in the northern hemisphere. If that goes from a warm shipping office into a freezing cold trailer on it's way to you all the paint might come right off the glass.

Is there any way to prevent that from happening?

I would ask in the restoration area. Sealing with triple thick would be my guess but someone must know for sure.

You can buy a shipping box designed for backglasses from CPR. They might have info on their site about avoiding delamination too.

Bonus question! I have an early production number 22 (http://www.ipsnd.net/details.aspx?id=50128) 1979 Bally KISS pinball machine with an original playfield. I've noticed that the sales flyers and a lot of the playfields I see online are different than mine. On mine, the arrows on the left and right are the same color as the KISS spelled out on the playfield. Notice how on Image B the arrows on the right side are orange/red. I was wondering if anyone knew why there is a difference between the playfield arrow colors.

At IPDB the photos of the plastic playfield have color matched inserts. http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1386&picno=11990 I don't know if that's a coincidence or not.

Quoted from Creagen:

Is the entire playfield in that picture suppose to be made out of plastic? The bottom side of it sure makes it look like plastic http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1386&picno=11991&zoom=1. I know mines not made out of plastic.

If I were researching why some KISS playfields have color matched inserts I would probably reach out to mrbally xtheblackknightx cfh with a PM. Could do some searching on rec.games.pinball
In the Pinside game archive two of the twelve images show color matched inserts. Both were uploaded by "Guest", so that's a dead end.
There are a lot of forum topics linked to KISS https://pinside.com/pinball/archive/kiss/forum but no relevant posts use the words kiss color inserts
Games often have Engineering samples, Prototypes, and Production versions. Good luck tracking down some info. I think it's an interesting question.
