Looking for Popeye Plastic 31-1878-34 (white) that sits right in front of the pop bumpers and right behind the (2) JAB targets.
Mine is missing a chunk on the left side and the ball has been hopping up there and sitting on the gap more times than not lately.
There are no graphics or artwork on it..
Thanks for any leads.

Just because it's not my "forte". I don't have PETG stock laying about, a laser cutter ( or a clean way to cut PETG).
Don't have an original one to trace even though I could rough guess it. I'm sure I could make something but I can bet that it wouldn't look as good when done than someone else on here could make.

I was more going with you could make one out of cardboard to stop the ball getting stuck until you find one...but I love a smart ass response just as much as the next guy...if you take a pic of the exact plastic you need...we have a popeye here on location...I could trace it for you (and make something temporary unless you just want to wait for an original)....good luck on your hunt..............Joey

Thanks for the reply and the offer! I wasn't actually trying to be a smart ass...I was just trying to be factual.

I have only so much time in a day, like everyone else and don't mind spending $10-$15 on a simple unbranded plastic or genuine one if someone would mail me one. Kinda surprised no one seems to have these in stock anywhere.

Would love an original NOS plastic though. The ball has only hung up there 3-5 times in 3 years so not a big deal.

It always seems to be my better half that gets it stuck there. I didn't even notice plastic was broken until I removed the ball a second time in 2 weeks, so as infrequent as it once was, she seems to have the knack for ball parking now on this game..lol

Your going to have a hard time finding that plastic. It always seems to be broken on just about every Popeye. I ended up making one for mine. Your right thou, it is a pain and time consuming to make.

Bump. Still would like to find this plastic in the wild.
Also I need the Upper Mini Playfield plastic where the two targets are.

Still looking for that plastic..if anyone can trace it, I do now have some PETG I could Xacto a clear overlay for it.
Thanks!

If you don't even post a picture of it, I have no idea if I have it or not, you know?

Trying to find a picture online. Not an easy find..I'll keep looking..
You can see most of the plastic on the pin right behind the two jab targets.
