Need some help deciding on which color(s) I should get for the post sleeves in my machine. I want to get the rubber ones out as they leave black tracks in the machine. Right now I'm thinking all white, but I was also considering a combination of Orange (near Lost Mine & Extra Ball) and white everywhere else. There are 11 posts in all (book says 9, but points at 11).

Here is where I plan to buy them at: http://www.pinballlife.com/index.php?p=product&id=1322&parent=91

I attached some pics. I tried to point out where the posts where that I'm looking to cover.

Also, I paid $2500 for this. I didn't know much about pinball and everything that goes into them, so I didn't know what to look for. Other than a couple dinged mountains and one with a hole in it, it all plays really well. Still need to give it a proper cleaning. The guys has helped me out with advice and help when I have had questions. Did I get taken?

I would match the playfield colours under the posts, Blue for the blue water areas, white for white water areas, orange where there are rocks on playfield under the posts.

Unless the rubber on the posts is starting to crack/flake off. The black track are actually carbon from the contacts in the machine sticking to the ball by static. It is in the ball trough, under the plastics and probably stuck inside all the light inserts under the playfield. If you tear the playfield down and clean it up it will never get as bad again.

I think that would look pretty sweet with custom posts.
Great looking pin whatever you decide.
