Saving the playfield – part 4

Having left the playfield to dry for over two weeks, it was time to polish the playfield today. Before I started, however, I had to repair the dents around some of the inserts (especially in the mansion). So yesterday, I took some super thin superglue and used a fine syringe to drip the superglue into the crevices. Having left the superglue to dry overnight I wet sanded them down together with the whole playfield with 2000 grit wet and dry sandpaper until the whole playfield was even and had a matt finish.

I then used a 3M Roloc polishing system in my electric drill at 1200 rpm to apply Novus 2 to the entire playfield to polish it up and then followed this with 3M Finesse-It polishing compound.

I was very happy with the outcome:

My perseverance had paid off and at last, I can move on to rebuilding the playfield. Yippee!
