First disaster strikes AFM!

The “Return To Battle” insert had lifted and so today was the day where I tried to level it with the playfield.

So using a 1500W heat gun I carefully heated the rear of the insert to soften the glue and applied gentle pressure to the front to try to reseat the insert.

It didn’t work.

In fact instead of leveling the insert I managed to warp it, so that it stood even more proud.

AND I managed to overheat the insert so much, that it bubbled and the clearcoat delaminated.

Overheated RTB Insert with delamination of clearcoat - Aggh!
