I purchased my first table two weeks ago, "Haunted House".

Since then I've acquired a great deal of knowledge from this forum and, the best one, is the realization that the Novus product line exists.

I took apart the playing field (all three levels) two days ago and am undergoing a massive cleaning project and I have to say that whoever came up with the Novus product line, in my mind, deserves the highest honor in the universe. Sainthood, knighthood, a golden ticket, 1000 herds of cattle, or whatever highest honor you can think of.

Fuck it. The person deserves a Nobel Prize in Chemistry for crying out loud.

The gunk that has come off the playfields.... and I mean the thick black stuff kind of gunk... wow.

It's obvious that this machine has not been cleaned... ever... and Novus is just plowing through all of it. Reeee-diculous.

Yeah, the main playfield will never be restored to it's full 1982 pristine glory but, wow, it looks 500 times better than it did just two hours ago.

I only wish I took photos of the playfield before I started cleaning it so I could compare the conditions.

I know, I know... "You're preaching to the choir here buddy," but... wow. It's a glorious work of chemistry.

My table thanks you, Mysterious Novus Inventor! You're very awesome.

I'd also like to thank the Mr. Clean bald dude and his magic erasers. Using these (gently) has given me amazing results. Then applying Novus 2 and then carnuba wax. It's like a new(ish) looking playfield. And Novus 3 on old mylar that I am afraid to remove has done wonders as well.

You're using Novus 2 on the pf, right?

I ask because I have a similar project to start this week and it's pre-diamondplate era so I know I can't go with anything too powerful.

Hey there! Got a moment?
