Pulled a Bally Strikes & Spares project from storage to restore it. I've had my share of these early Bally's and this is my 3rd of this title. I can't figure out how a playfield get wear under the outlane wire guides. That's just impossible. This is one nasty azz PF. It has the wear one would expect from a heavily played game on the middle rollovers. Yet all the unusual wear on the outlanes has been covered with mylar. All I can think it had full mylar that was removed and ink came up. But the wear spots are deeply indented down, you can feel the depression under the mylar. Plus from the looks of it, nothing was ever removed from the PF.
It's going to be a moot point since I am looking for a replacement PF, but has anyone seen this type of wear?
