Mr. Pinball Tip:

On Bally backglasses you will sometimes see paint missing in the upper right or left corners. This is due to the 90-degree metal edge of the locking bar in the backbox. In the 'open' position, this protrudes past the wooden guides and will scratch the backglass as it slides up along those wooden guides into position. I remove the assembly completely, go to the grinding wheel and round those 90-degree corners. Might save a backglass or future replacement glass from damage during a hasty insertion.
