Hey all,
I have a Gottlieb Diamond Lady that has what they called a vitrigraph playfield. I understand that this means the art is sandwiched between two layers of Mylar or plastic. The unit overall is in excellent shape, but the Mylar is peeling badly near the ball launch. This is partly my fault bc I tried to clean it, but it was already coming up anyway. I cannot simply replace all Mylar on the field because it old take the art with it. I think I have to cut this part out and leave the remainder. Any tips on doing that? Do they make Mylar that is specially cut for ball launches or is this a custom job? If I just cut the bad stuff out, will the new edge start peeling?

I am also curious about the mylar as I also have a Diamond Lady that has a little mylar that is lifting up near the ramp flap on the upper left. Someday I will get back to that project and finally get it back together and running...

trim it off with a razor blade or x-acto knife and call it a day

Yep, trim it off like Gerry says, then replace it with a new piece of Mylar.

Overlap the joint where you cut it off, for complete protection.
