I’m about to install new flipper button guards on my woodrail project and discovered the twist nails I was going to use are 1/8 inch too long. Are there shorter twist nails available or what is everyone using to install these?

are these the PBR ones? p/n GTB-FA701

I used them on my stern galaxy and pinball pool, iirc.

Yes they are. I’m installing them on a 1959 Gottlieb.

Looks like they are 7/8" long including the head, I wonder if you could just take a side cutter/kliens or grinder, and just snip off a length at the tip to allow it to fit the cab width

I cut them a little shorter and predrilled the holes. It worked out great.
