Hi All,
I just got done with a Data East "The Simpsons" playfield restoration.
This is a never installed NOS playfield that was sitting in a friends
basement for years. The plywood must have been subject to moisture as it
had started to plank over the entire top half of the playfield. The
worst planking was at the top. Also there was mold damage towards the
top 5 inches. The other challenge this playfield restoration offered was
when it went through the dimple press at the factory someone put it in
upside down and it had dimple holds all over it the playfield side. The
press also hit some inserts. These I had to replace using inserts from
an old playfield I had.

Sadly I didn't start taking pictures till after I had started but you
can get an idea of what I had to work with when you look at the pics.

If you'd like to take a look, follow the link below and then page down
to click on the "Simpsons Restoration Project" link.

Enjoy and Happy 4th of July to all my American friends!

If you want to split hairs, it's officially "D'oh".

Homer doesn't have enough hairs left to be able to afford splitting
them.
