Well, to those who mention the broke plastic, yeah, I'd love to replace it. However, I don't feel like spending $80 plus shipping just to get one plastic when that's all I need. Unfortunately, I can only find the full set at pbr.
I imagine that if they had colored rings at the time other than white, blue would possibly have been the choice and while it's not stock, neither would be a touch up. I may try a touch up but I may just get Wade's repro and let someone who knows what they are doing touch up this playfield. I do not know color matching with paints nor do I have the tools or experience to do such touch ups and I would definitely not do them for the first time on this game. I did, many years ago attempt touch ups on a 1951 Gottlieb Niagara. I had no idea what to use so used rustoleum gloss enamels paints and then tried spray poly. Wow, what a screw up that was!
Now, if anyone knows where I can reasonably buy just the single sling plastic that is broken, I would really like to replace it.
As for EM blasphemy, someone put a cool white LED behind the score reel in the BG and it looks great, gives it an aquarium feel. I may try cool white leds elsewhere as I think this game might look decent with that cool feel to match the aquatic theme. Again, it's a matter of taste, but these games are now in our homes and we should enjoy them as we see fit. Now, that plastic...
