    Is there a source where one can purchase a relatively low volume of wire (or one-off chunks) that matches the colors of the original wiring under the playfield? Colors like solid light brown, yellow with black stripes, green with red stripes, etc.? Thanks!

    Planetary sells some. I use them for the common stuff.

    You can also make very passable striped wire yourself. Just need a drill and a paint pen set. I have a dowel with a hole drilled in it. That goes in the drill, thread wire through the hole, I clamp the other end in my vise. Spin the drill until you get a rotation in the wire every 1-2". Run the paint pen down the taught wire and then reverse the rotation. Let it dry -- striped wire on demand.

    Oddly certain colour/wire combinations don't work very well. I had water-based pens, probably oil-based ones would do better.

    Thanks for the heads up, I must have just sucked at searching on Marco. Appreciate it!

    Obviously I'm doing this now

    I’ve had surprisingly good luck at the local Ace hardware.
