There is some background to the protector, Milton via this thread made the first protector. I think he and Cliffy worked something out
http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/lost-world-jurassic-park-cliffy
, but I acquired the sample from Cliffy to test fit and give feedback. Here is the install on it.

Tools needed:
Cliffy protector
I used a crescent wrench (to hold post while taking off the nut)
Nut/hex driver - I can update with size.
Phillips screw driver
Flash light

First we must find some whiskey. I am on a 2 gingers kick lately. Mix that with Ginger Ale and you have a 3 gingers....see where I'm going with this?

Okay, now lets find the machine we must do surgery on.

Open the coin door, take off the lock down bar, and remove the glass.

Here is the area we will be working with above the PF.

Under PF we need to take off the nuts for the 2 posts (that will install in the cliffy holes). To get to the right side one, we have to remove the E stand up. I would put my small (3 inches long) crescent wrench on the stand up nut, so the post wouldn't turn (don't scratch your pf). Then I was able to unscrew the nut.

Here is the back left nut:

Here is the nut for the right side:

Lets move top side. Fold the PF down.

On the top is where you will need a phillips.

Go behind the Egg. We need to remove the plastic on top of the pop bumper cap.

Once removed we can take off the rear egg half which also removes the pop cap

You can see where there are 2 nuts holding the front half of the egg on under the dinosaur arms/metal tab

The trex baby can be moved if lifted up. While you can move it. Use the phillips to remove the posts.

Remove the posts so you can install the Protector.

Install protector

Now reverse the removal

Put the posts in, do the nuts on the bottom side. Install the egg properly so the front half opens.

The protector covers all the of wear spots and protects them from happening. I worked with Cliffy on getting the fitment and holes just right. As always, great cut and quality from Cliffy The only thing (which I knew would happen using this), was the ball is less likely to just fall/roll into the scoop when falling from the pops. This is a small thing I can deal with, knowing I won't wear any more into the wood

Thanks Cliffy!

Awesome doc Parnell! and fantastic help finally getting those post holes dead on. Big thanks to Milt as well for the initial work he did too. Now I just gotta find some 2 Gingers and that damn left nut... oh wait! The proverbial left nut is up there in your pix!

Yay! Big thanks to Milton and you for getting this going. I'm always up for helping out the pin community.

2 gingers is from/made? in Minnesota as well! (or so I'm told). You could find the right nut...whichever you find first

I like writing up guides with pictures...helps me a lot so it has to help others, or so I hope
