I've recently got my first Pin, a TFTC machine. The machine plays excellent but I'm tearing it down to clean up wireforms, weld some broken tabs etc.. and wondering if I should go all the way and just get it cleared while I'm at it. After doing a lot of reading about the topic there's a lot of arguments to clear or not to clear. Being new to this, I'm not sure how much is considered significant wear and how much isn't. See the attached pictures,
The art is starting to crack around the edges of many inserts and they've lifted enough that you can feel a slight ridge, plus wear on the holes and near the launcher. I've also got some temporary repairs to the playfield from previous owners putting screws through the playfield that I could do a good job on and clear over.
I know it's ultimately my choice but I'd like to see the opinions on whether I should just clean it up and put it back together and leave the playfield alone or not.
TLDR: Playfield has some wear, see pictures, should I do repairs and reclear...
