want to touchup the play field on my S&S. Anyone have the brand and colors that best matches the bally colors? Have searched the forum and can't find any posts with the answer. I'm sure many folks have touched up a S&S so need your expert help. I realize that each PF fades differently so mixing colors to match is "best", but does anyone have recommendations for out of the bottle color matches to use for someone who is "color matching challenged"?

You could try bringing the playfield to a place that can scan and mix paint. I've seen Sherwin-Williams mentioned a couple of times.

Other than that, each playfield will be slightly different because of the particular colors mixed on a particular day at the factory and because of fade and/or discoloration of the top coat.

I may have to do that. I just touched up a Bally Playboy and one of the posts here recommended I try the Liquitex soft body acrylic in hibiscus to match the pink in the play field. Sure enough it was a perfect match straight out of the bottle. Was hoping someone here had a similar suggestion for the colors in S&S.
