REPLACEMENT PLAYFIELD WINDOW KITS
OF CLARITY !
The two most popular and most valuable Gottlieb System 80 games
out there feature a distinct playfield window right in the

"downstairs" playfield design of both machines. The
windows are a necessity to see the illuminated playfield when
the ball goes down there. Problem is, 25+ years later,
these poor original windows are micro-scratched from decades of
ball play on their surface. They have become inherently
"foggy" and dull, making them a constant candidate for Novus
polishing to keep their clarity and shine to a maximum. NO

lower playfield as if nothing is between your eyes and the lower
