I fixed it now - but of course now the solenoid aint firing. So I guess i've killed the transistor. (Voltage looks to be there so im guessing the pulse isnt)
Karma for not having to replace the stuck bumper one really I guess.

On the plus side the new transistors appeared today so will bang one in this evening.. see how it works out

Having finished rebuilding the playfield thought I would have go at fixing the backglass.
I will quite likely end up buying a replacement. But then what would I do with the old one. So armed with the knowledge that im probably going to get a new one I have nothing to lose by trying to fix it.

At a glance it looks ok...

But on closer inspection - theres a plastic sticker on the front of the glass

Removed some of that - which shows were missing a chunk of image :(

Some of the plastic remains here - but ringed areas are pretty much missing.
So, off to photshop land we go.

Most of the art is back - just need to go "Rolling Stones" and paint it black :)

Irritatingly ive lost a bit when removing some of the masking tape having painted the black. And I lost part of my T. However, Still looks way better than it did. I can touch these bits up I think.
