    So I just received a replacement plastic for a broken piece on my Star Trek machine. The replacement plastic came in a "Laserific" bag and is far from clear. I ordered replacement parts like this for my WCS as well and they also came in opaque, so I'm pretty sure this is how they all come... How do you make these things clear? I am thrilled that I can get replacement pieces but need them to match what is on the playfield... Any advice? When I ran into this problem last time on the WCS the answer was to essentially put them under flame. I completely ruined it last time. I am open to suggestions.

    Quoted from Grangeomatic:

    That doesn’t still have the protective plastic layer(s) on it, does it?
    That’s all I’ve got....

    Quoted from donjagra:

    Peel the plastic off, it will look much better. If you have to make one, do it with lexan from home depot and cut with a dremel to size.

    Quoted from MT45:

    Sure looks like the plastic protection layer is still on there. You can see a bit of the separation near the post hole

    Quoted from Zablon:

    And most likely it has it on both sides.

    Quoted from pintechev:

    Peel off the protective plastic film on both sides.

    Thanks guys! Lets through this one down as another victory for the pinside community! The plastic was coated in... plastic!
