    Hey there. I was playing my Striker Xtreme when one of my drop targets broke off. I'm ordering a replacement drop target but it does not come with the decal on it. Is there any way I can safely remove the decal from the broken target and put it on the new one? Thanks!

    No, I don't think removing the old and putting them on the new ones will work very well for you at all. Here is where you can get a new set for $50.00: http://www.marcospecialties.com/product.asp?ic=820-6258-XX That would be your best bet.

    For fifty bucks I'd sure as shit be trying! The Marco kit is great if you are doing a whole playfield, but for a single drop target I couldn't justify it.

    Unfortunately, as Dude said, there's no way in hell it would work to remove/replace the old one.

    A homemade waterslide decal (using one of your other drops as the source) would definately be a cheaper method, if you are up to that.

    Exactly. I only need one decal. What is a waterslide decal? Thanks.

    You need to get some 3m double sided tape. I cannot remember which version you might want to digg around on RGP as this has come up before.

    It's just a special kind of paper you buy for your computer printer. Available at most office supply stores, even some other places. Print the decal, seal it, wet it and it slides right off the paper onto your drop target. After it dries, cover it w/ a piece of mylar.
