Picked up a nice WCS playing well but it needs a few little bits...

Goalie - The rubber on mine has snapped in two, I'm finding the decal sets no problem but not the actual rubber, any suggestions on what to make a new piece out of??

Penalty Kick-out - Seems pretty weak, doesn't make it to the goal, how strong is this supposed to be?

Launch skill shot - gets stuck on a rail coming down the side chute to the flippers, I assume a simple bend/adjustment of the rail will take care of this???

Large football - has a 'whirr' to it, not overly loud but it's there, is that normal? Seems to be spinning really fast and strong.

LED Kit - My Judge Dredd has a full LED kit and looks amazing, as it was my first pin I didn't realize just how good it was until I got this next pin with regular bulbs. What should I expect to pay for a full kit, about $250? I really don't like the yellowy look of the back-box and playfield compared to the cool clean whites of my JD.

Thanks for any help

Joel

The ball is pretty noisy for most. As far as LED's go, I can say I'm extremely pleased with Pinballbulbs.com for their WCS kit. Check out the before and after pic. And if you buy, I think pinside members had a discount code as well.

Check out the WCS thread for lots of info on this game...

Mr. Pinball Australia has the goalie plastic in stock. Can't seem to find anyone in the US who does.

Thanks for those suggestions, I picked up the full LED pack and also a back-box LED kit for my JD. I think I should be able to work out something home made for the Goalie using the old one as a template.

I wrapped my soccer motor and gearbox in cork insulation tape. It made it a lot quieter.

I'm fairly certain that I got mine in the USA. Did you try Marco or BAA / Planetary? Ebay?

Should send the ball into the goal

It should definitely make it into the goal, but mine doesn't slam it in either.

Should make it easily. However I do remember others here having the same issue.

Mine shoots into the goal pretty smoothly. Maybe replace the sleeve and clean up the rest of the mechanism?

I put together my own LEDs in one huge CoinTaker order. All premium bulbs.

Decat, looks nice!

Yeah that looks great!!!

- LEDs on the way, (also some for my JD backbox).
- Thanks to Turboderf for offering to send me a replacement plastic for my goalie.
- Seems the ball sound is normal so I won't worry about it too much.
- I'll give the free-kick a good clean and look-over to see if I can get it punching strong.

Thanks for all the feedback, I'll post pictures when done.
