This came at the perfect time as I just picked up a Stars a couple weeks back with an ugly/peeling backglass! Order already placed!

Quoted from Chalkey:

How have CPRs backglasses been holding up? I know I've seen people say plastics from them that have had a bunch of issues.

I haven't heard of these issues with the plastics before. Is it a recent issue? Every set I've received have been high quality and extra durable.

Post pics when you get it please! I'm super excited for it, but wont be getting mine for awhile unfortunately. Would love to see it all lit up!

I read something at some point and know a guy who got a set about 6 months ago that were just flaking away at random spots, not where they were rubbing or getting hit or anything.

I'll post some pics up once I get it! Do the CPR backglasses come with the trim and lift channels or do you have to move that stuff over? It's not a big deal for me as I have a brand new liftchannel and trim from Gatecrasher that I just purchased and installed. Check out the old cruddy one that was on my game. Yuck!

Yeah that's bad. Pretty sure they are not supplied with the glasses. Although I'd be interested in a new metal lift channel and new trim as well. Who is this Gatekeeper you speak of?

I misspoke. It's user Gatecrasher on Pinside. He makes awesome quality lift channels at a great price!

I also ordered a lift channel. Did you get 3/16"? He seemed to think mine would have been 1/4, but that's not what my digital calipers said. I'm wondering what the CPR backglass thickness will be..

I got the 3/16ths and it's a slight bit loose if anything. 1/4 would be too big and 1/8th too small. Hopefully the CPR thickness will stay true to the original thickness.

Did you build it up with tape or anything? I've never actually replaced one of these. Actually I think I have... but I've had a lot of beer since then.

I didn't build it up at all but it would fit perfectly if I added a strip of double-sided or electrical tape to the front of the glass to hold it on. I heard the rumors that a Stars glass was close so I didn't put anything on as a temporary measure.

Been in the club twice, mines in the garage next to flight 2k... thinking of clearing the pf someday, is it worth the crazy speed?
