Playfield cleaning

While dismantling the playfield I noticed that the top flipper bats didn’t have their caps anymore and that the left bottom flipperbat had the cap glued on. I had to break it to get it off. Replacement bats have been ordered.

Also, the metal ramp at the end of the shooter lane is broken. It has a dent there where the ball hits it every time and the front screw holes are broken. I’m still looking for a replacement, let’s hope I find one.

Broken, will need replacement.

So now I’m done removing everything from the playfield and boy, is it dirty!

Dirty playfield

The above picture still shows three of the four popbumbers installed, but they have been removed in the mean time and what I found is that one of them had the wrong coil in it and it was missing two screws that actually fixes it to the popbumber bracket…

Wrong coil for the popbumper.

So now the popbumbers have been removed and I was surprised that the mylar sheets under them aren’t just dirty, but some of them are even torn to pieces…

Popbumpers removed

So now I started cleaning and the difference is amazing! Look at the yellow banner in the picture below, the right side has been cleaned, the left side hasn’t.

Dirty and clean contrast

Now for the rest of the playfield, metal parts and plastics. Then I can start fixing the sunken inserts. That will be fun…
