Quoted from ForceFlow:
That C37 was really nice...I was wondering whose it was.
Normally, I'm not much of an EM player, but I went back several times to that game--very challenging!
Was the playfield a restored original, a clear coated NOS, or something else?
The playfield was touched up and auto clear coated with a matte finish. I like the gloss finish on newer games but think the matte looks more appropriate for an EM. At the time I couldn't find anyone local who was setup to to do an auto clear so I sent it out to HSA pinball for the touch ups and the clear. I thought he did a great job and would use him again.
Here's an example of what things looked like in the beginning. Playfield had a few areas where it looked like water damage and missing areas of paint. The cabinet and head were pretty rough as well. I ended up replacing the whole front of the back box with a new face since the original was delaminating so much. HSA keeps a gallery of all his playfield work here if you want to see more pics.
