I started restoring my South Park pin about 9 years ago and one of the first things I purchased at the time was a complete set of NOS plastics for it. Fast forward to today and I am wrapping up the project and was wondering if I should go back with the old worn/cracked plastics and save the NOS set (given the current scarcity), or just throw the new set in with the mindest that this pin will be HUO so the plastics will likely stay "new" for a long time given the low play? What would you guys do?

If they're unobtainable, I'd scan them.

Personally, I'd put the new plastics on, but also put on plastic protectors to help protect them.

If those aren't available, maybe trace and cut your own. Or, maybe work with someone who does produce protectors.

If all else fails, throw on some plastic washers, especially on the slingshot plastics.

Props for keeping your project alive for nine years! I would use your new plastics and enjoy the results of your long journey.

Yea, what good is having something if you’re not going to use it?

Scan them for documentation purposes, then install them in the game with some protection for good measure!

Agree, scan them and plastic protectors.

If you go washers, don’t forget around kenny and chef.
