I need some advice on doing my first playfield overlay. Its a baby pacman. should be easy, its so small. using a mylar overlay from phoenix arcade.
Im breaking down the playfield now, and pulling out the metal wire ball guides. one was already broken off in the playfield, and one more got broken when I took it out. I saw some posts on making new ones yourself and adding some glue to keep it in place. My question is more about what to do to the playfield to get ready to put that overlay down. I'm reading a couple different techniques, some seem pretty excessive imo.
I'm seeing the general census is to sand the whole playfield down to the wood and clean with naptha. When i do that, do I need to take all my rollover switches, and all the bulb sockets out, or could I just put tape inside there and vacuum and use compressed air to make sure they are clean afterwards?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I wish there was a specific go-to playfield restoration with mylar overlay walkthru for my game.
