Well, it was a late (but worth the wait) Merry Christmas for me as the CPR repro backglass for my Space Odyssey which my wife got me arrived yesterday. I'm posting some pics because I can not believe how amazing it looks and can't believe how it compares to my old one.
Here they are side by side.
Here are a few comparison shots of some of the detail.
So this is my first table and this is the first time I am doing this. The old backglass has metal lift trim that doesn't feel like it wants to come off. I don't necessarily want to try to force it off in any way because I don't want to break the bg. Should I follow my gut and just order all new trim for it? All the side trim on the old one is held on with black electrical tape and I am sure if I buy new trim it will fit on the new bg better.
Also, I want to replace a lot of the lamp sockets in my backbox because I have lots of trouble with dim lights and/or unworking lights. Yes, I have cleaned them all and used a socket stick on them. I found the staple down style at Marcos but I am not seeing these that go above the scoring reels. Do you guys know if I can get these?
I just want to do everything I can to improve the lighting behind this new backglass. Seems silly to pay all the dough for it and not show it off as best I can.
All help is appreciated!
