Hi all, as I am an 'em' guy and just learned the hard way to be a bit more careful with my playfields, rubbing alcohol and magic erasers ... I have posted an extremely long winded and rambling account of my recent C37 disaster ... which in the end led to some positive lessons learned and some new (at least for me) restoration techniques that I think many might find useful or helpful with their own particular 'fixes' or projects.

As I am still navigating all the restructured 'categories' here I figured I would post the link out to the restoration section where I originally posted the thread so a few more of you might find it too

This was a great post. Glad you linked it to make it more accessible because I think it could absolutely help someone down the road.

Not to mention your fix looks phenomenal

nice writeup and a great looking fix.

Magic eraser is like 2000 grit sandpaper. I always remember that when im cleaning a playfield with ME
