    They look great! Are the date labels printed or did you cut around the originals making a window in the wrap?

    The date labels are printed and you can still read them, but I am going to cut out the original expiration sticker and attach it to the back of the machine.

    I cut out the original date labels, used double sided sticky tape and placed it over the printed one. It looks good to me.

    WOW! That is LEGIT!
    This game induces a kind of hypnosis, a strange feeling of happiness. Winning is hardly important. But, time passes. You lose touch with yourself for a while, and merge with a machine and perhaps you forget, what you always wanted to forget.....

    It certainly is a very nice step by step

    I'm also hoping we can add the pdf to the Research Centre

    Wow! I'm extremely impressed with both your quality of work and this PDF file.
    I just have one recommendation and that is to cover the playfield with Mylar. After going through all that work it's cheap insurance to protect the play field. Granted, our machines aren't in heavily used commercial settings but I don't know how well unprotected vinyl will hold up. Plus if you ever have to remove a feature or something with a tool and slip, that soft vinyl will be gouged.
    In fact, mylar is used on high-wear areas on many pin balls. A 3 mil adhesive sheet big enough for a pachinko costs about 10 bucks and won't yellow over time. Something to consider.

    The vinyl comes laminated already from the company that prints it for me. However, I have considered putting in an additional layer of 5 mil adhesive backed mylar over the playing field but sheets that are large enough to cover it in one piece are unavailable locally. I can't find a company online that sells it at a reasonable cost, they sell a lot of similar products that I haven't researched the durability of, but not mylar. I've played it for several weeks with no visible damage to the vinyl due to the laminated protective layer on top of the vinyl. It is not as thick, it's probably about 1 mil. But it seems to work just fine.
