With the recent re-assurance of the repro BoP playfields being produced, I am torn between buying a repro or having my original touched up and cleared. This is a machine that will not leave collection, for numerous reasons beyond just pinball related, I don't care about resale or what a collector would think. My concern really is longevity and playability. I am at the point in this process where the playfield is just about empty on top and I don't want to go any further until I make this decision. The original playfield is not diamond plate, it has pretty bad gray discoloration, some wear spots here and there, and slight lifting of the inserts (hard to tell). Curious what everyone's thoughts are on this. Cost comparisons? Durability comparisons? This will be my first swap/touch up, so I really have no idea what to expect. Thanks!
