Quoted from jq-pinner77:Just got a gorgar from him sent from Germany playfield has a 3/32nd bow / dip in the middle was told this was perfectly normal and would go flat after installed never heard of this before
[quoted image][quoted image]

I installed a Gorgar this past May and have a playfield protector on it. I have 14 machines so it gets minimal play. Today I noticed pooling on all of the posts on the flipper guides as well on the posts at the top of the return lanes. I also have clear chipping on the extra ball hole and in the drain. I wish now I would have waited and went the hardtop route or restored my old one. I think some of the issues are the edges are sharp and when a ball hits it, it cracks. I am going to try the “hot iron” repair on the pooling and smoothing the sharp edges in the drain/hole to try and stop the issue. Funny thing is my CPR EATPM swap has had at least 1000 plays and not one clear issue.

Quoted from mof:

Sorry to hear about this. Did you already post pics on this one?

No I was able to take some tonight tho. I added washers and got them just snug enough which I did in the first place but I hope this is the end of it. I also sanded the edges of the through and hole. There has been a cliffy on the hole since day 1 but not covering 100% you can see the chipping. Oddly none of my star posts have pooling so fingers crossed it holds up.
