Elektra Playfield Maintenance

Postby Chris Silver » Sun Feb 17, 2019 8:24 am

What is the best way to maintain the acrylic playfield on Elektra? The best for cleaning, waxing, removing scratches?

I would assume Novus sparingly for polish and Mother's Calfornia Gold Carnauba Wax. That's what I like and I've had no problems on either my traditional wood playfields, or my tag team which has some sort of plastic/mylar layer right from the factory.

Mother's California Gold? I'll have to try some of that. :)

It smells awesome. I liked it so much for my pinball machines that I started using it on my truck.

Should they make it into a cologne? ;)
