    I just patch spot with mylar on flaking areas.

    Soured on triple thick a long time ago. Messy and noxious and difficult to apply to bad areas without losing all the ink. Not to mention I've seen humidity do weird thing to Triple Thicked backglasses.

    Yeah if you noticed the old building is now a condo construction site. They made us an offer we couldn't refuse!

    Quoted from 850mph:

    Well... er, um...
    Thats the question.
    Is there really any reason to clear coat if machines are in a nice temperature controlled environment?

    Personally, I do not believe so. I only mylar spot patch on flaking areas. Beyond that, I'm doing LEDs behind the backglasses on EMs these days also to reduce heat.
