    Just a comment wear when the weather gets cold cpl of my lanes get the bowl effect more and have water spots after strip. Summertime I don't but now i'm starting to again. From N.mich.

    Lane panels expand and contract under heat and cold like anything else. Worked a center once, here in Arizona, that had a couple of panels that bowed so much in cold weather that the lane machine buffer wouldn't even touch the lane surface, leaving a bare spot.

    Your only remedy is going to be to shim the panel, and make sure all the screws are secure.
