A friend of mine got a Freddy : Nightmare on Elm Street pin on a trade last year. But it had a blown out playfield.
As far as options are for a Freddy pin……..well there’s not any. No Repro Playfields, no hardtops, no overlays.
So I had to do it myself.
First off, strip the playfield:
Then scan it. I used a HP 4670. After scanning and stitching the software this is the result. As you can see the image needed a lot of work.
So I went to work with Photoshop. I probably spent a good 70-80 hours to get to this:
I then had to sand down and clearcoat the Playfield. Had a body shop clearcoat it. Then I sanded it with 600, 800, 1200, 1500, and 200 grit sandpaper. Then I high speed buffed it :
After that I had the overlay printed. Then I installed it on the playfield :
And here it is after most of the re-assembly and with a Playfield Protector installed :
Turned out pretty good if I do say so myself
