Quoted from Nepi23:
Did you put mylar on the cut points? Over or under the PF protector? Did you cut the mylar pieces also at an angle similarly to the cut points?
Great questions and here are the 2 answers:
When simply "cutting" the protector, I had NOT had to use any mylar whatsoever (see pics of cuts in both GB and ACDC)
When "cutting off" portions of the protector, I DID have to use a small tab of mylar to lock down the free floating end
I had to cut a piece off the one I put on Big Betty's Truck Stop because it just was not designed well. It was a small section near the top that was a ball trail into the habitrail overpass - no biggie
Mind the angle you cut at and try to think about where the ball might be going too slow and could potentially "hang up" on that small slit
I have tried to cut at an angle as well so the ball crosses at a bias rather than squared to the cut
So far I am EXTREMELY pleased with these and may be ordering another one for my Data East Time Machine
They are great if you want to do some playfield art touchups and then want to preserve that work without clearcoatingIMG_2115 (resized).JPGIMG_2116 (resized).JPGIMG_2117 (resized).JPG
They are also great for correcting cupped inserts
They look like a million dollars when installed
Careful waxing - they play even faster than a standard PF when freshly waxed!
