I've had some time to enjoy my Metallica Pro factory except for LED's. Before I get more black crud than I have to does anyone know the sizes of these 3 rubbers. Yes I can take them off, I tried searching but there's too many posts.

Sizes needed:
-Rubber by mystery
-tiny rubber by rollover
-rubber by bumper

I assume the posts are 3/16 and 3/8. Correct me if I'm wrong please. TY!

Please? I can't find the PDF manual online and the sizes aren't stamped on all the rubbers. So taking them off might be pointless. Bumping just in case this passed everyone by. I did post it early on a Sunday.

I changed all mine to white day after I opened it. I have them in a pile still. Keep meaning to make a rubber ring list for the pro owners.

I will try and figure it out for you when I have some free time at home.

haha... I stocked up so I should have whatever it takes on hand. Just was wondering how much I'd need or oddball sizes, but you mentioned that there wasn't a ton of rubber on it anyway. Thanks!

They are rock stars. All rock stars use small rubbers

I have them here in front of me.

2 qty - 2" - slingshots
1 qty - 1" - above right outlane
1 qty - 3/4" - Under the right ramp
1 qty - 7/16" - near upper right lanes
2 qty - 5/16"
10 qty - 3/16" is what they used, I used 7/32"
10 qty - 3/8"

That's it. I'd say removing the right ramp is absolutely necessary, but its not a big deal. Whole thing took maybe 30 minutes.

Thanks guys! I hope this thread is useful for others trying to filter through 100's of Metallica posts. Let me just make sure the tags will help. Just upgraded to flipper fidelity speakers. Not too loud, just way more balance. Music is more dynamic and adds a nice thump. I have it set on high you can lower the sub 4db's if you want less thump. Happy with the purchase. Yes the speakers aren't spectacular but the crossover board and completely compatible wiring harness make it a no brainer if you plan on keeping the game a while. Especially a music themed game.

Edit: are the rubbers the same sizes and quanties for LE and premium editions?

I would guess so on the Premium... There are a couple behind the captive ball, but I think they are there for the benefit of the pops/Sparky, so I'm guessing they are on both games.

Missed a 3/16"! Edited my original list. 10 total.

How does Met look with white rubbers? I'm tempted to go the same route.
Paul. Editor,

I put white in mine, I love it. Never really noticed it after swapping it, so its 'inoffensive' enough.
