Why did you need to sand them flat... if they are new (?)

So you mean they are basically not yellow enough like the old ones? If it's only when they are lit you could use yellow LEDs or add layer(s) of yellow cellophane filtering underneath, I've used filtering on one game with white LEDs to get some faded inserts to look correct again. If it's when they are unlit also, you're stuck with the color they are.
<<How do you do new inserts in an old game and make it look like it fits? I'm not repainting, or clearing the playfield, just replacing the inserts.>
So to make sure - you mean make them fit as per the color, or is it that the new ones seem like they are too small for the holes and loose too?
