Quoted from Pinballerchef:

Anybody replace the plastics yet?? I am glad the flashers aren’t riveted but I can’t get the black plastic mushrooming things that lock the flasher domes back into the plastics....is there a sercret to these?!

In the automotive world, the pin poking out of the bottom would push up toward the top unmushrooming the bottom.

Hmmm ok I was trying to pull that pin and push that pin inward with plyers...wasn’t having any luck but I’ll focus more pushing that pin back in again. Thanks

No such luck with the flasher dome push pins...the plastic pin within don’t move. I was able to finagle the pins into the new plastic but the the flasher domes have even smaller holes hahahaha. I left plastic has 3 flasher domes on it to boot...gonna be painful!

Anybody actually put on these plastics yet???

Ok sooooo any insight on the pins for the flasher domes?! Am I doing something wrong?

#206 10 days ago

I only pulled the black plastic pin out and removed the black holder for the pin.

Then i placed the dome on the new plastic,inserted the black holder through the plastic and dome (pushed it together with my fingers so it went through both holes) and secured it with the black plastic pin.

Ok so your pin and black holder were able to be pulled apart?? Because I’ve held each end with a pair of plyers and that pin will not move in or out...all I’m doing is stretching the plastic pin out and smushing up the black holder...seems so simple but driving me bonkers

Maybe find a short stainless screw to take its place ?

No that wouldn’t keep the look it originally has...the plastics are black and so is this pin. It almost hides itself in with the plastics...dunno why it has to be so annoying tho.

I’m only guessing the pin/push tab may be unobtainable, you could still use a screw, just paint the head black, or scour the internet and automotive shops for something similar. Sorry you’re having such a hard time

My robowar is folded up in storage now for a year, I’m about to have my gameroom finished so I can finally slide it in and play it

Thanks for the suggestion. Have fun setting your games back up...I’m sure Robowar has missed you plenty!
