From your photos I assume the reason you are replacing the wood laminate is due to the excessive wear?
Man, that machine has some mileage! Good luck!
Curious, how much Magic Eraser/alcohol have you done to the wood areas with the bad wear spots?
I had much better success than I expected by getting really aggressive on such types of wear on my second Sinbad playfield. Just a thought as you might be able to get most of the wear cleaned up and only need to apply some clear coat to fill in holes? Long shot perhaps, but could save you some steps.
