The film free waterslide decals is coming from Korea, 4-6 weeks waiting for shipping.
It look so amazing that i stopped the playfield restoration to try this product. If good i will remove all screened decals and redo them with this product.

I'm planning a new project ''upgraded F2K level 1 mod'', i will make new transparent plastics for the flippers return lane ''a la Bally'' and raise the original plastic on an upper level, the ball will now stop jumping over this plastic, it's an ''unfair drain'' :lol:

Orange transparent inserts color tested, look very nice, with or without light thru it. ''B F'' letters to the bottom left side are done.

Cleaned and polished ''bells'' stands for plastics set.
Made new wood siderails with ''real wood'' no more vinyl !

About another 10 hours of works later :)
Transparent plastic set and cpr plastic set waited about 10 years to be part of this nice result :FP:

In my opinion, one of the best multiball launcher from this era. I still enjoy a lot when i acheive this challenging multiball !!

Free-film waterslide decals received, that was very fast from Korea !!
I'm super impressed by this product, it will completely change the way i restore my playfields and save me tons of time for a very low cost.

Here's my first test, what you see from this test is only the ink from the printer :P :P :P
I'm planning to buy a color laser printer for more possibilities in the future !!

My biggest fear and challenge for this restoration was the inserts screening with colors inside text.
Is it possible to find similar orange and green with uniform transparency ?
Here's the results, i'm very happy and impressed by the results :)
I use the new film-free waterslide decals system.
Note that the effect in person is a lot better than the pictures and specialy with light thru, the result is fantastic.

What are you using to cure the decal once it's placed on the playfield?

There's nothing more to do in my case. After there will be 5-6 coats of clear over them.
If someone want to repair inserts on a playfield, he can use this process and clear locally just around the black circles with a stencil tape.

Great looking project! I wish I never sold mine. I had done the CPR PF. If you're up for some seriously challenging play, give it a good coat of wax! The plunger got more action than the flippers the first night I used it for league.

Now fixing...Circus, Force II

Another section done for the pleasure of your eyes :D
I dream about future possibilities by using film-free water slide decals in future playfield restoration, already bought more sheets !! That will make more precise and better quality restoration and 100% faster than before.

New update after near 1 month. I had to repair some ghosting defect that appears on some inserts and redo completely the X's section. After 1 month and few hours of work only to repair defects, now i'm happy to start the final clearcoat process. The final assembly of playfield is coming and that step is my favorite, things will change a lot with all the mechs back on this playfield soon.

2 of 7 layers of clear done :-)
