STTNG Playfield - Everything was stripped back and either replaced or re-conditioned or rebuilt. The playfield was a total loss, so a replacement was used. All metal elements (not nuts and bolts) were shot-blasted and either polished or chromed. Dont get too hung up on replacing plastic playfield parts with new ones on a restoration, the playfield is a battlezone and parts will break and perish all of the time. Everything on the playfield is now classed as "NIB"
I am a fan of mirror blades and side art, I notice that JJP have only just started doing this on their very last pin on the CE version (side art), Stern have been doing it for a while now on LE versions. So any restoration with mirror blades is a must (or artwork if I can get it), maybe not sure purest after all!
I can post shots of the original playfield, it was totally dead and dull with lots of elements very worn.
