Red might be an option too.

Clear insert with blue LEDs wouldn't look bad......
Let's stop talking about CPR playfields and lets start posting photos of our High Speed Hardtop installations and progress.
Mine arrived on Friday and like many of you, I didn't receive a shipping notice - just a nice surprise on the porch. I am still working on stripping the playfield. I'm fairly new into the hobby and have never stripped a playfield before or attempted anything like this for that matter... But I've been following the guides and other advice everyone's been kind enough to post and I've been taking my time.
So, start posting those progress photos...
Quick Question: I am to the point that I'm ready to start sanding the playfield. I've read through the other posts and am confused as to what grit to start sanding with working up to finer grits. I don't know where I should start.
I have a 5 inch random orbit sander. Is this what you used? Any advice or insight from those brave enough to attempt this would be appreciated.
Thanks. I wasn't sure I should start with the 80 grit or if that was too aggressive.
Yes, I am planning on clearing everything. I got two cans of USC Spray Max 2k High Gloss Clearcoat in the spray can.
Wow. That's a little disheartening. I still have yet to get to the stage of applying the Hardtop, I just finished the final coat of clear. Working slowly and carefully maybe what saves me. It'll be interesting to see what the potential fix would be... As ita47 points out, removing the printed numbers on the underside seems like it could make the situation worse.
Quoted from ita47:
How would you go about removing the 3 when it is printed on the back of the plastic and has the adhesive over it? Looks to me like it would scratch or cut the plastic.
I've never done anything like this before and don't trust my skills as a 'craftsman', sanding the original artwork off gave me incredible anxiety.
I guess waiting now is going to be the hardest part.
Listening to everyone's advice here I started with a 5 inch random orbital sander beginning with the 80 grit and worked my way up to 220. Then I cleared using Spraymax 2K clear coat that comes in a rattle can.
