    Can anyone name the game that these plastics go to (and where they are located on that game)? I’ll give you an upvote if you can

    Stu from CPR gave me the hook up and said they go in the backbox, around the base of the bulb. Lo and behold:

    I didn’t know, either.

    It goes in the Motordome backbox

    I didn’t know until Stu pointed it out to me.

    Well that explains why Google showed so many Motordome pics when searching the number on the plastics

    Woah woah woah, hold up, haha. When I searched, I kept getting Bride of Pinbot

    Seems like such an odd spot for a plastic to go. Should it be part of a plastics set? Any chance there's more than one in a Motordome?

    Glancing through pictures on IPDB, and it looks like there is a similar plastic on Karate Fight. Possibly used on other Bally 6803 games with the single lamp backbox lighting.

    Strange Science has the backbox light also with the high voltage plastic too I think?

    Very cool. Thank you for sharing and the examples. The set came with two circles, so I’m wondering if there is a second spot, maybe behind the playfield?

    Seems like the pins with the plastic has the same MPU. And all of them has a lightbulb behind the backglass instead of a board with a bunch of lights.
