Quoted from Damien:
So a little Novus 2 will clean up the trails?
I have Mill Wax from a local Pinball shop. Is that a good one to use after to wax the pf?
Also, I was under the impression that new games did not need to be waxed for a while? I got mine in January, so it's only a few months old with about 500 games played.
Ball tracks come out pretty easy with a little novus 2.
Thin coats of pure canauba wax like Blitz or P21S (silver can) will protect the finish.
The idea is to wear out the wax surface before you wear the clearcoat.
Wax every 500 plays or sooner (maybe 350 plays to keep it like new).
Change balls out or inspect each time you wax (use a jewelers loupe to see all the imperfections).
Clean the flipper coil stops and sleeves of any black dust periodically this is where the black comes from mostly.
Done correctly and using pure carnauba, not any of the liquid type, the wax is as hard as rock.
Super thin coats of wax is the key. Contrary to belief, wax doesn't build up as each waxing tends to remove the prior coat.
Let it dry completely before buffing off.
In my opinion P21S it the easiest to use and has very little wax dust remnant compared to all of the other brands.
