Quoted from bstyles:
Anyone making a clear plastic PROTECTOR set?
I see CPR has a replasment screened plastic set, but I don't want to go through the effort without also installing clear protective plastics under them.
Many years ago, I scanned an NOS set of GI plastics and sent the scans over to Pinbits to make protectors.
I didn't have a GI at the time, so I never had them send me a set to test-fit.
I assume Pinbits went belly-up, so who's doing protective plastics now, and do they offer a set for GI?
Call me crazy but I make clear protective plastics for specifically damage prone areas on my older games from 1/8" plexiglass virgin window scrap. It's not really difficult, just takes a little time. Where I have a complete screened plastic section, I trace that piece over the plexiglass, deliberately oversizing by 1/16" to 1/8" depending on the ball contact risk. Dremel cut the form, followed by a few runs over a belt sander to contour. Before removing the protective cover on either plexi facing I run a sharp knife edge over both edge facings to remove any "burrs". I guess I enjoy the custom fabrication more than the hunt for suppliers half the time. Good luck!
