I am restoring a Gottlieb Sittin' Pretty that I received as a birthday present 48 years ago. It has been inactive for about 30 years. I am not looking to do a factory fresh restoration and am a newbie to restorations. I have two questions, for now:
1) The pop bumpers have white skirts and I think these are original to this machine. All of the pictures of Sittin' Pretty I have seen have skirts matching the tops, red or blue. Are the white skirts considered to be OK?
2) The playfield inserts have sunk a bit. Some pop out but some are being quite stubborn. I'm willing to have another go with a hair dryer and a socket to get them out but as they have art work on them (clown finger tips) and are made of unobtanium I want to be quite cautious. Has anyone used clear epoxy over an insert to level the playfield and prevent further damage to the paint around the edge of the hole for the insert?
