Here are a couple of pics. I have not noticed any difference in gameplay with the protector installed.

A buddy of mine borrowed my Sopranos and got fed up with losing balls off the drop target so he installed this....

It looks bad from this angle but you don't see it when playing and I haven't lost a single ball since!

Here is the players eye view

Yes it doesn't look bad from players view. I need to but something on the right ramp. A few times I've shot that ramp and it's had so much speed that it went to the right drain. I did get lucky once and it landed in the shooter lane. PS.... I may use your buddy's idea.

Just curious if anyone has ever cleaned their Sopranos playfield and if so, what products did you use to do it?

Check out this thread for some very useful info. The advice for clearcoated playfields applies to Sopranos.

For those of you that have gone 100% LED on this machine where did you get your bulbs? Is it difficult to update or is it just a matter of unscrewing bulbs and putting the new ones in? Thanks guys.

I'm planning to replace the LEDs in my Sopranos with new ones from Comet Pinball as the previous owner installed mainly bright whites and they are WAY too bright. Ryan at Comet is a good dude and you can email him with any questions beyond the tons of info at his website.

Installing LEDs is not hard - you just have to make sure you purchase the right type of bulbs. Non-ghosting bulbs are more expensive, but eliminate the annoying flicker that can occur with cheaper bulbs. Sopranos also uses both the older bayonet type sockets for the GI lighting and 455's for the playfield inserts. Consult your game manual and look at your game to see which bulb base types to buy.

I did the coin taker kit. Looks nice and clean. Just swap bulbs nothing crazy.
