    This stuff is awesome. It took my dull, worn and grungy playfield and made it all shiny. I am impressed. This gets the Clubber's seal of approval.

    Here are the before pics. This is after a real good rub down with Novus1 to get it as clean as I could so I wouldn't grind in dirt.

    The after pics are before I applied any wax. Kinda hard to see but no sign of dirt, shiny, and all but the deepest ball tracks removed. I used two passes of each grit with an extra pass of #3 at the worst spots.

    Now for 3 good coats of wax and a run over by the buffer.

    Thanks.
    Oh my that is a PITA to take apart. Made my IJ seem easy. Like peeling an onion. Parts on top of parts on top of parts. Took me a couple of days to get it apart and cleaned. Now I just hope I can get it back together again.

    Sounds like it was a pain cleaning your Corvette. One day, I'll invite you over to help clean my WhiteWater, SC. You will have a good time with the plastic ramp mess.

    I've heard nothing but great things about Treasure Cove. They are supposed to be top notch when it comes to restorations.

    I'm dying to see SC's Corvette when its all shopped out with the engine mod.

    Still waiting on the rest of the parts before I can finish putting the ramps in and play it.
    The engine mod is one long piece of light emitting tubing which wires into the flasher for the engine. Once doing this mod, you cannot go back to the regular wires without a new engine plastic since you have to drill a couple of holes bigger and superglue the wire in place.

    The wait is the killer. I'm still waiting on my new Creature mirror motor to arrive, in order to play my new pin.

    For whatever stroke of luck, my hologram didn't turn blue or red, so it will be awesome once its working properly.

    I have striped and polished 2 play fields with the Treasure Cove kit, their kit is worth its weight in gold!

    You really learn your pins that way Danger. I know there is not a single screw missing anywhere on my pins. I also attribute a lot of my knowledge to tearing my pins down. This time last year, I barely knew how to open the backbox or lift the playfield. Now I can read a schematic and repair a circuit board.
    Just take a LOT of pictures, and group removed items together when they are located together on the playfield, preferably in a similar fashion to how they are placed on the playfield. Such as Flippers and slings on one end of the table and ramps at the other end.

    The digital camera is a godsend to the hobby of pinball care/maintanence (you will learn how to re-assemble things on your machine). Buying/finding yourself a cheap bucket to place your parts is the other part.
