Lots of good info on clearing a playfield. With all the tools one has to acquire and skill level needed to accomplish a decent job, doesn't it make more sense to just buy an overlay found at Bay Area Amusements and call it good?
Your down to just removing the old Mylar,doing a touch up,and possibly filling in a few inserts going that route.
Are there drawbacks to going overlay vs clearing?

Thanks for all the info one can find here on this subject. I am currently studying procedures for my project but have seemed to hit a roadblock.
I have yet to find anything that addresses the screened areas on a playfield and the process for touching up those areas. Are there screen applicators to apply screen airbrushing?

Wow,never expected such a fast and full detailed response!
I believe it is important to know however and this is a great solution.
However,I wouldn't have guessed a decal on the playfield would be the solution as the edges would hinder ball movement,or it is assumed clear coating would follow to correct any unevenness?

Great, thanks for the valuable info on this subject!
