Need some input regarding the Replay Button (start button). Looking at improving the look of the front of a few Gottliebs.
I have bought new Buttons from PBR, they are reasonably priced at $3.25. Some of the lower quality pins I have do not need a new button. Have seen some games on Pinside with the button painted bright red, which doesn't look quite right. The red colour is more translucent on the new buttons. What has been applied to the bare metal buttons to make them look this way? Are they anodized?
Could a translucent red paint or dye be applied to the buttons? Take the button out, buff it, clean it, then colour it, could cost more than just getting a new ones.
