Evel Knievel(2007) 
1
 Starting out with a NOS playfield.The downside of it is that it has been coated with some kind of lacquer which has really yellowed it.Other than that the playfield is perfect.
 If you look right near the K you will see a much lighter spot.That is what it will look like if you completely strip the lacquer off.The tricky part is going to be sanding it all back off without getting into the art.

 I am going to strip the lacquer off entirely in order to both get the nice white back and to ensure the clearcoat I use will not be comprimised by putting it over this type of coating.

 This shows the difference in what it is and what it will be when done(prior to clearcoating of course).
