    I have used the TC Kit on 2 machines now (Diamond Plate & full Mylar). I used a 1500 rpm drill. Both pinballs had some bad ball marks around the slings and flippers and also in the lanes on upper playfield. I used #3 1st and started around the flippers. It really took a while to finally get most of the ball marks out. I kept adding a drop of #3 and working it. I didn't put pressure on the drill, I let the pad do the work. After I got most the ball marks out I switched to #2 and then to #1. When I got done I noticed I had some fine scratches where the ball marks had been. I didn't work the upper playfield as hard, but now it still has ball marks in the lanes, but the scratches are not there. I did what the DVD told to do. I know they said to use a 2500rpm drill, but 1500 was all I had. Is that why I've got the scratches? Any ideas? Can I repair the swirl marks I caused?

    Yes those scratches are from #3, need to spend more time with #2, then 1 again. It's just sand paper really, if you have scratches gott sand them out

    But #3 scares me, you can take it down too much

    I only use the #3 on dull mylar. It can do some amazing things.

    But I wouldn't use it at all on a Diamond Plate or a good looking mylar.

    Will #2 take out the dull looking ball marks all around the slings and flippers? I've always used novus 2 , but I thought this might be faster. Wish I hadn't

    I was just thinking about buying this kit. Does it really make a big difference compared to hand cleaning and waxing?

    #6 7 years ago

    I personally wouldn't use 3 accept on Mylar.

    Quoted from rockinganker:

    It makes a huge difference. Check out pictures of my old Fire! with a full mylar in this thread. I got similar results on a Nitro Ground Shaker with factory mylar that I just finished.
