After much thought and time, I finally started rounding up parts for my TMNT pinball machine, I have decided on LED's but I ran into one small problem, I need the rubber covers that go over the lights on the skillshot and can't seem to find them anywhere (new to pinball still so may just not know the name of them) and will they fit over LEDs like they do the bulbs or is there a special LED for this? Do people even recreate them? I added a picture and circled what I'm talking about, thanks guys for your time

Why do you need the lamp covers when you can use color LEDs? Just askin'.

My buddy got leds for his star wars and we put a few in turtles just to get an idea, thats when 2/4 caps just split and they were very bright from the angle they are at. I also like to keep it as original as possible even tho im using leds over bulbs. I am using alot of color leds as well.

OK I see. A frosted dome Led has worked well for me in that sort of application.

I second frosted dome LEDs- I really like the way those bulbs look in these type of situations, and there are tons of color options. Niftyled.com has them down to 80 cents apiece now, or you can go through your favorite LED source as well.

Are there no purists like me here in pinside?
I would like the coloured condoms to be in the game even if I use leds (yes, I may be a purist, but I don't consider leds a "mod" on a game).

I found that these lamps from comet: https://www.cometpinball.com/product-p/2smdfd.htm
work very very well with condoms on them

5050 SMD LED are wider then 2835, and condoms may not fit the 5050.

If one is using a Condom, its the best way to go.
Cointaker has them too
