OK, so I'm spiffing up my new-to-me and oops-this-became-a-project Williams Space Shuttle, and I've had to remove the pop bumpers.
To my surprise and delight, there is quite a bit of artwork beneath them, that ties into that space-scaffolding theme in the area. It really looks awesome, and it's kind of a shame nobody ever sees it (you have to wonder why it was put there).
Since I probably should replace the bodies and other parts, I decided to maybe mod the bumpers while at it. Especially, a clear skirt would be AWESOME as it would reveal that artwork beneath.
But apparently, pop bumper skirts are Inverse Model T's: you can have any color - red, orange, yellow, green, teal, blue, purple, black, white... seemingly everything *except* clear! Yet every other part of the bumper *is* available in clear... ARRRGH!
I've looked high and low from the known pinball suppliers, ebay, amazon, etc. There's one site in Europe that has a "translucent white" but I'm not convinced that would offer the effect I want, much less for paying a USD-Euro conversion and overseas shipping and wait time, etc.
So is there a reason clear plastic is not used or offered on skirts? Have I not stumbled on the double-secret supplier yet, or am I simply out of luck?
