It looks like you already knew about them from the pics.

Yes. But the highest bidder had LG initials in his ebay name. Thought it was another pinsider. And I only need a couple pieces.

I am getting Goldeneye 007 as my first pinball machine this Saturday, really looking forward to it!
Also, was me who bought the plastics off ebay, as some on my machine is broken.

Is this a common "issue" with Goldeneye, weak plastics, or just usual wear due to much playing?

I'm starting to think your goldeneye is beyond jinxed Doozie.. dang!
in another recent thread about "hack of the day faking plastics", might be a good way for temp fix or keeping it good and playable at least, make the parts from some thick clear lexan, print the graphics and spray adhesive them to the undersides of the new lexan parts.. workable right now, or if done cleanly enough maybe call it art?

idk for sure, it might be with time and temp changes (maybe light too?) plexi starts losing flexibility to become brittle. if parts are crazy rare expensive unavailable, I dont see any real why not making new and tougher than original, only exception being the insistent purist who'd rather leave it covered up in the garage never EVER driving it..

to just make em, it might take some time playing with brightness contrast hue saturation and different kinds of paper in a printer to get really close to "right". time is money too really, and if it looks good and aint gonna break again..

Zizzle, there's a thread on here about making plastics - I think he uses slide off decals so you can get max light penetration - you do have to play with the colors however.........I've made scans of some of my cracked GE plastics but haven't gotten them down to size - and looking at Lexan prices at Home Depot dropped my mouth open!

I've made a few plastic protectors for some of the risky plastics.image-956.jpgimage-638.jpgimage-148.jpg

I have an extra set of these slings. They are okay but I picked up a NOS set after.
