i have a whirlwind that is not in horrible condition,but it has the mylar and you can see underneath where the paint is getting the little lines. I am guessing if i try to pull the mylar up, the paint will come with it. Like i said it is not horrible and you really have to look to see where it is doing that. My question is that there are some replacement cpr playfields available for this. From a value standpoint, is the machine worth more with the original playfield or is it worth more with a new playfied. I know it will definitely look better with the new playfield and i am leaning towards going ahead and replacing it.
