Never had a need for the big EM backbox metal covers, now I need 2 - one each for '76 4-player GTB and BLY. Wondering what's easiest, least expensive, best: do I look & wait until a used one becomes available, or have them fabricated? I have no idea of $$ used, new, hand made, $shipping, etc. Didn't see anything on PS or eBay. Any advice would be appreciated. Plywood is not an option.

You can buy some of them from pinballresource.com depending on the year/model. He shows some online but also call to see if he has others.

I'd post on the "EM Seeking Parts" thread as these come available from time to time. I've bought 2-3 from other collectors. I actually have a fabricated one that fits a Gottlieb 2-player if anyone wants it. $25 plus shipping.

PBR doesn't/won't make a GTB 2-Player rear door. I have inquired. Need one for a Solar City. Hopefully I have some luck finding one at the Allentown flea market this year.

If you're interested in that two-player one I have (fabricated, not original but fits perfectly), let me know and I can send you some pics.

A year ago a guy contacted me thru PSND asking for detailed pics of my Aladdin's Castle rear door, which I sent him. He was having it fabricated locally, which I will probably have to do. Good idea. I should have asked him what it costs. Hmmm... wondering how important that original rear door is to other collectors?

Ah yes. Of course. But that's when my wife picked to take her to France as payment for her tolerating my neurotic EM addiction. She's earned it.
