I haven't checked mine yet, but if it has the goof I'm keeping it. It'll be worth way more down the road, like a mis-stamped penny!
Quoted from zaphX:
How has it held up over time? Any dimpling, scuffing, anything at all?
Hardtops seem like a much better way to go than paint and clearcoat, to me.
I can’t speak to a hardtop specifically, but I’ve had a lexan protector on my FP for about 4 years with LOTS of plays. I eventually pulled it and clear coated, however when I pulled the lexan I noticed where repeated ball travel was starting to cause scratches/dullness (this was far less visible when the protector was on the playfield). As a test, I pulled out my drill and buffing disk, loaded it up with some Manzerna P126 to see if the scuffing would buff out. It did! While this is anecdotal evidence, I believe the same would hold true for a hard top.
