Hey Lockednlit I dont know how involved you want to get with your restore but I would advise against reinstalling the screw in stud post. During my restore i noticed several were bent from repeated ball strikes (especially around the ramp and bumber area)and the wood was somewhat stripped in the area of the stud threads. I changed all of mine to the #6 threaded post with the hammer in threaded clips on the back of the playfield. Those original screw in post just never seem to go back in as strong as they need to be in my opinion. Its worth the upgrade ☺

If you order the Cliffy ramp protectors they will come with the taller bumper post protectors for the ramps. I would recommend this also to protect your new ramps and helps prevent ball deflection off the left ramp post when the ball rolls back down.

Quoted from apc7654:

Have you come across any side rails/guides that have a broken support that is screwed down to the playfield? I have one that is broken (on the right side), but I'm having difficulty on how to repair or replace the support. The support secures the metal side rail at the top and bottom which is crimped to hold the rail in place.

One of mine was broken but fortunately didnt interfere with the games operation. Im not sure if PBR has these assemblies or not. I remember looking at those and wondering how could I work around it if need be.
