You'll want to pull everything off the top of the playfield and scan it in, plus take measurements of where all the inserts are - if you're doing an overlay.

Some people just sand it down and paint directly on the playfield.

There should be printers in town who can print directly on glass or plexi to do the backglass. Make sure they can print white and it's suitable for rear lighting.

take some good pictures of the backglass and then give it to someone who needs it.

even if you just make a translite to replace it, as long as the translite is printed well it'll work the same

I too have put much thought into doing this as well, I look forward to all the tips, tricks and advise!!
