    There is a window next to one of my pins. Even though it is energy saving reflective glass, I still worry that the sun will damage the side of the cabinet. The sun doesn't hit the play field, only the right side. Any ideas on how I can cover it to keep the sunlight from causing damage? I was thinking about peel and stick shelf liner or poster board. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    I just got some blackout cellular shades from Overstock.com and couldn't be happier. My TZ is ready for a cavemate now.

    Quoted from gambit3113:

    Close the curtains.

    This is the only reliable method.

    I use a good coat of wax on my cab decals as well as the playfields. None of my games are in direct sunlight, however, the wax/protectant keeps a nice shine on the pins while providing "some layer" of protection.
