I'm looking for some suggestions on how I could repair this plastic ramp so that it looks clean within the game and does its part. The one hurdle I see is, the ramp is a clear plastic, so any repair I do will be visible. I've looked a few times for a replacement ramp and I haven't had much luck. Attached is a picture that I hope helps. The previous owner got rid of the center post and just stuck in a screw to hold the ramp down. The issue is the ball sometimes launches itself to the moon if it goes off the ramp the wrong way. Who knows where it will end up.

Thanks in advance...pinball repair is a new territory for me to discover!
