Mr. Pinball Tip:

NEVER wipe the white semi-translucent scoring reel area on an electro-mechanical backglass. This area is easily damaged. This area can be repaired if it has been damaged by scraping all the white area off using a razor blade. Be sure not to scrape off the comma or any other non-white items. Some machines will have a few things on the backglass poke into this area. Next obtain from a plastics shop or graphics art supply some semi-translucent white self-adhesive vinyl. You may need to check the translucency to verify that it matches well. Cut the vinyl with a razor to make the little windows for the score reels. Be sure to test a stencil before applying so that you are sure the window size and spacing is correct. Align and apply to the backglass. With care the appearance of the area will be a perfect match and no one will be able to tell unless they see the backglass from the back.
