I'm trying to replace the fiberboard piece on the top section of a Royal Guard swing target unit. This is not the piece that connects the 2 solenoids. The wear causes the targets to not be exactly in front of the switch most of the time. I have the blank fiberboard from Pinball Resource that needs to be cut & drilled. Any suggestions, exact measurements and/or a template would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Bump! I guess I got the patience of a flea. Thanks again in advance for any input.

Send some clear detailed pictures of the snap target unit where you need the repair made.

Do you have the old piece? I just cut the material to the same length and used the old piece as a template to make a cardboard template. Do a dry fit with the cardboard to make sure you got it right (holes the right size) and then drill the material using the cardboard template so you don't make a mistake and waste it. Don't make the holes too tight or they will bind, too loose and you will continue to have the same problem.

Thanks for the advise from your experience. I'll post when it gets done. It's my friend's machine & he might even do it himself. I'll forward him this info. Who knows, maybe he will even join pinside.

Thanks for the offer, but first we'll try gottguy's proven plan.
