With Munster's LE shipping. what is everyone think of protecting the lower playfield window. Do you wax the lower playfield window to protect it?
What has everyone done with CFTBL, ACDC, CONGO, Etc?

Of course. I don't see why someone would avoid it.

I wonder if a sheet of mylar over it would work, especially if it's brand new. I could see how waxing an older game that already might have hazing or scratching would be a better choice, but I could see how mylar on a new game might keep it in better shape long term.

Plus, you won't have to worry about paint removal if you have to pull it up for any reason. Just cut the mylar to shape.

That's what I would do. Brand new mylar is basically invisible.

I would Mylar brand new. Swap it out every year or two.
