    Just about through polishing the Laguna Beach playfield. I know NEVER to play with dirty balls!

    I have, but would like to replace/restore the red and yellow roll-over buttons (faded to white)and accompanying lamp cover inserts. I have cleaned those that I have and think if I am going to rebuild the roll-over buttons I will need to paint them. The lamp cover inserts (red and yellow) are in rough shape. Measuring them, they appear to be 7/8" round. No supplier of parts lists this size. 1" and 3/4" yes.

    Please give me some hints, tips, and direction to restore/replace these items.

    measure the hole in the playfield. The plastics shrink over time.

    on the other hand, I vaguely recall trying to find inserts a lot of years ago without luck.

    The inserts I have are the right size and when I re-install them into the playfield, I will use a filler below them to insure that they are level with the play surface. I restored them by first sanding them carefully with 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper. This removed bubbles, pits and splatters of what I thought was paint. The inserts were molded in their respective colors (red and yellow). After sanding , I polished them glass smooth with Novus 2.

    The roll over buttons will require a different approach. The yellow button is molded in in yellow plastic and will be polished with Novus 2. After polishing, I will reassemble it into its cleaned guide. The red button was molded in white plastic and will require color to be added. I have sprayed two coats of red Krylon paint onto test piece of plastic. After a day or two drying I will attempt polishing.

    While working through this Laguna Beach restoration, I have found that I have all the pieces (so far) and have been doing primarily restoration. Better know as "doing the best you can with what you have". When the buttons are reassembled I will attach images of the final results.
