My girlfriend bought me the Playfield polish kit for my birthday. I just have to say it works fantastic, I honestly could not believe how well it cleans and polishes the mylar and playfield.

My taxi had some swirl marks and what looked like cracks filled with carbon in the clearcoat. I tried to clean it with everything I could possibly think of, Mr. clean magic erasers, special wax/cleaner,simple green. they all cleaned it ok. But the maks were still noticable.

I used the kit, and it looks good as new now, maybe better.

My NBA Fastbreak has a full playfield mylar, (I don't know why, it doesn't need it) but it was kind of scratched/dull. Now you can't tell its there. WOW.

I used it on my JM, and South Park too, SHINY!!

Great/amazing product, if you haven't tried it, and you have some questionable looking playfields I suggest you get it, it honestly worked wonders. I just wish I would have taken before and after pics.

I too am glad I bought it. Made my dull as heck Corvette look almost new. I am hoping it does as good a job on my Batman Forever.

Hmmmmm...... Interesting! I have a TX-Sector that the mylar is real cloudy and dull looking, and I think this might resolve that!

I too am in the market for something like this. Good gift homie.

I have used the kit on 2 play fields, it works miracles on play fields and Mylar. I would highly recommend Treasure Cove's kit, you will be very pleased with the results!

I would definately use it on your TX Schusler, the mylar on my taxi looks brand new now. Before it was pretty cloudy/scratched looking. I can't stop staring at it now, I honestly can't believe how great it worked. I ordered new glass now, because it is dull/scratched more than my playfield.

You sold me on it, Erak! Thanks!

Just wondering. Would top quality care products like Zaino work on the playing field as well as this Treasure Cove. From what I have been reading all these products seem to be just renamed car care polishes and waxes.

It seems that most of this stuff is car care products. But since I am no expert at car paint restoration, I have to stick with the treasure cove and Novus stuff.

"Would top quality care products like Zaino work on the playing field as well as this Treasure Cove?"

Absolutely. You just have to be careful about what's in them. Some things that are fine for a car will wreak havoc on a playfield.

The Treasuercove kit comes with an instructional DVD. and the cleaners/polishes plus the buffing wheels for your drill. You cant mess it up if you follow the instructions, and at least you know you are using a proven product.

I would be weary about using something that wasn't tested and known to work.

i.e. experimenting with car polishes.

The buffing wheels and cleaners would probably cost you about the same as the kit costs, even if you could figure out what chemicals/compounds they are. Maybe a few bucks cheaper.

But the kit is worth the price just because it works.

Agreed @Erak...

I have a Funhouse that doesn't have the diamondplate playfied so I am thinking Novus may not be the best for it. Can the Treasure Cove product be used for non diamondplate finishes?

I'm a fan. Here's a Fire! I used it on that had a full mylar.

I agree with all the positive remarks. It made my Class of 1812 (full pf mylar) look like clearcoat. Amazing.

Which kits did you get? Shine master?

It works well, but I feel you still need a few coats of wax to really get the gloss out.

Actually wax does very, very little to add gloss. The gloss comes from the polishing. Wax is nothing but protection.

Wow, look at the shine on that Fire!. Unreal. it looks great

It works well but do not get off the Mylar if you are using the rough media. I got a spot between two pieces of Mylar on my PF and it takes the paints right off. My fault and I hate that I did it but now I get to practice painting.

Not sure if Treasure Cove makes a special blend, but I have both the Treasure Cove kit and the 3M compounds (Finesse It and Perfect It) and they smell, feel, and look identical. I suspect TC is using 3M compounds and re-labeling the bottles for a markup.

However, in my opinion, it's still worth it to buy their kit as they've obviously put a lot of effort into putting all required items together (minus the drill) and including the DVD. This is a really great idea for people new to pinball who want to clean up their playfields, but can use the extra guidance that the DVD offers.

Could we get some pics, I am interested in the mylar polishing. Thanks

I used this on my NF that had a serious black/dull coating over the entire PF. Novus and elbow grease didn't even put a dent in it. Just did my RBION that looked really good without it, but it made it even better.

It does do a very nice job. That is one beautiful looking fire PF.
