Restoring a 1965 Williams Eager Beaver. Playfield is in pretty good shape except for the usual nicotine staining and other typical junk that can come off with just some elbow work.

BUT

There are a few places where you can tell the playfield has gotten wet and those places are I guess what I would call it, planking. Not very large places, small areas. I have taken a soft brush and carefully brushed down the whole playfield to see if more was going to flake off or if it was done with the planking. No more came off so I figured with some touch up I can make it look okay.

My question is just in case I didn't get all of it, is there some type of product I can put down on the playfield that will seal everything so there is no question of whether or not anymore is going to flake off.

Thanks

I find a color that matches as close as possible, rub it in all the worn areas, then after its fairly dry, i take novus 2 and
rub off all the top layer leaving (hopefully) the rest of the color in the cracks. Then if your satisfied, put a few coats of wax over the top. its not perfect,but works pretty good, and if it starts getting bad again try it again.
