Hello Pinsiders... I need your help.
I gave my 24 year old NOS DINER translite to Rick at BAA, to scan and reproduce for the pinball community. This NOS translite still had the thin plastic protective coating on it from factory when I gave it to Rick. There was not a mark in it.
I asked him NOT to scratch it. Well guess what? Not only is it not NOS anymore... it is scratched BADLY (see picts). Apparently, the person who scanned it, wrapped it in a heavy cardboard type paper (you can see it in the picts). This paper is like using 800 grit sandpaper.
Rick said he would pay for its restoration. However, I'm not sure how to restore it. The good news is... none of the artwork is scratched. Just "millions" of hairline scratches, in the clear plastic front.
Rick suggested maybe Novis 2 with buffer, I said maybe I would take it to Tap Plastics for their recommendations... and then there is the "Flame". That concerns me!
Well, the good news for those of you who need a new DINER translite... you can Thank me (and Rick later).
Let me know your thoughts.
