I just picked up my first Gottlieb EM (1962 Flipper Clown). I'm starting to compile a list of parts to order, but I can't find these faceted smooth posts in solid colors, only white. Looks like pbresource only has a few transparent ones too.

Not a big deal if these are unobtainium, I can just clean the existing ones and hope none are broken. Is there a part number for them though?

Are you sure those are faceted, and not smooth?

Yup, I definitely will. I haven't even checked if anything is broken yet, I just like having spare parts on hand for my games if it will only cost a couple of bucks.

Probably smooth, I could be dumb. I'm not right in front of the machine.

Those aren't faceted. What's more, sometimes they are "mottled". No one makes those anymore, not even PBR. The best you can do is clean them up or source used parts. I picked up a bunch of used posts from Steve at Mayfair back when he was still coming to shows.

BTW...Flipper Clown is a cool game. I love the artwork!

Thanks, what I needed to hear! I've had my eye out for an interesting EM for a while and Flipper Clown definitely caught my eye.
