I finally joined the club! Got a nice example with a perfect backglass and nice cabinet. The playfield has some wear, but I don't think I'll have any trouble restoring it.

Decisions decisions... Touchup and clear my current playfield for free or buy the CPR and do the swap?
Maybe I should get moving on it to see how it turns out before preorder spots fill up..

I'm not bad at touchup and clearing. Plus, I don't have to take everything off the bottom of the playfield.

Does CPR send a confirmation email?
It would be good to get something back, saying "yes, you're on the list"...
This would be my first playfield from them, so I don't know the process.

Thanks! I just went to my sent mail and replied to ask for a confirmation.

Quoted from nocreditdot:

classic Stern setup

You're not wrong on this.
I feel the classic stern are better, but I suppose this only makes sense if you're going with all new everything.
It's gotta be cheaper to just rebuild the linear mechs?
I've also seen mixed results with the vid upgrade on linear flippers too.

Look at the paint color under the siderails and legs.
Then find the closest spray paint to that.
Not one person has the exact colors for you.
Besides, once it's all painted it's all going to be perfect anyway.

Or, if you like the pinball pimp's colors, maybe he can share.

Quoted from tdiddy:

In my opinion the green is the wrong color also. This is the playfield I restored for my game, mine might be a light more vibrant then a stock one. But there's is way to dark.

I may take this route and touchup my original. Heck, if it turns out ok; it will be less work. I don't have to take all the stuff off the bottom of the playfield to restore the top.

Got my CPR skateball playfield yesterday. No doubt it is nice! I do agree that the neon green isn't neon.

Quoted from CPR:

you just cannot compare the colors on your original 80's PF to our colors

You would think the original playfield colors would be darker in color, but this green is much brighter that the CPR.
O, well. It's a hell of a lot better than the one I have. Thanks for doing these CPR!

It's in really good shape! Leave the mylar alone if you're not confident in removing it.
I've done mylar removal on many early solid state bally's. The amount of art that is removed depends on the storage conditions of the game. If it has planking in the non-mylar areas, your chances of removing art is high. If not, it will come up fine.

If you decide to touchup around the mylar, the paint will eventually wear off over time. I've experimented with an acrylic sealer for people that didn't want a full restoration. It has lasted a while in home use, but i'm sure it will wear off eventually.
