I am customizing my Guns N Roses, and I am keeping all the original parts together, just wanted to add some flair. But on the flipper lane return guides, mine are clear and in great shape, but I wanted to make them red. So on the return guides there are two layers, a lower layer with a long arm so I can screw in the metal wire, and there is a top return guide that has a short arm.

I ordered red on the long one with the metal brace arm on it, but I cannot find the upper shorter arm one in red. I see flourescent orange, but only the right side. Is it just because the top one is reversible? as in I can buy two and put the other on the left side, or are both really just meant for one side?

Here is a picture of the arm I am trying to find in red, I see several places that have "orange right side" but not "red left AND right"

Does anyone know what to call this item specifically or is anyone out there familiar with a red one (right and left)?

They lost the mold for the smaller top level lane guide. You'll need to cut down the other longer one.

LOL

Are these universal for left and right? I know that might sound absolutely insane to people who are used to this.

Is that what everyone else has done? Bought the long ones and cut them?
