I thought I had taken good pictures of everything before I disassembled this Flip-a-Card to repaint the cabinet and playfield, but as I started putting things together, I have three parts that I have no clue where they go. They look just like the two angle irons that keep the back glass electronics board from flopping out but they have a cushion on them which is just like the ones on the other side of the board that someone put to keep it from scratching the backglass. However I've looked everywhere and can't find any screw holes with the diagonal pattern that they would go into. Any ideas? also note there is a slightly L shaped plate with two holes.

Any thoughts? Or a detailed picture of the back glass cabinet to share?

Thanks in advance!

Top inside of head left and right side. You should be able to see the holes from the 2 screws in each bracket.
Pad to the front. See it ‘peeking’ out in the top left side?

Perfect! Thank you so very much. The holes were there, just hiding from me.

I have to say that your backglass board is absolutely pristine, I am jealous of how nice it looks.

Any idea where the remaining piece goes?

You’re very welcome. Not my game, just a pic from the web.
That piece not sure. Hopefully somebody in the know will chime in. Enjoy!
