I'm working on a beat up OXO playfield and what started out as touch-ups has turned into an all out repaint. The field / background color on mine looks almost teal but from pictures I've seen, I don't think thats very close to the original color. The play field close-up pictures on IPDB look more like a light blue with a touch of green (light teal?). Can anyone with a nice clean OXO point me in the right direction? Does the field color happen to match the upper arch or side rail color, as it sort of does in the IPDB pictures? That seems way to light a color to me but again, I think mine is way off to start with.

Just realized by profile pic is an OXO play field detail, not mine and not sure where I got that, but the clean blue color under the pop number mylar is what I'm looking for.

I tried to match the color with clean area around bumpers. Here is test spot with paints I used and whole playfield after all repaints and final clearcoat.

Hey Northside, how is the restoration on your OXO playfield coming along? I've got one that I will be working on in the future and curious how yours is going?
