I have LOTR LE and the Brass side rails are in bad shape, right where your hands are. Im looking at replacing them with STERN's - Highly Polished PDI Brass Side Rail Set from Pinball Decals.

Has anyone else here done this? If so, 2 questions:

1) a\A// Error: Image 482622 not found //re these side rails a good match with the lockbar?
2) Does the Brass on the side rails hold-up to wear and tear near the part your hands touch them?

Thanks...

One point for clarity, I don't think those are Stern's product. They are made to fit modern Stern pinball machines but I believe the brass is done for PDI.

One other note, they likely do not match the rest of your hardware (the lockdown bar, legs and hinges).

Skip the middle man and send your complete trim to Mike Chestnut for plating instead.

Here's a pic of Chestnut's work on my Elvis. Mike is the best at plating and a great guy too!!!

Mike wants around $800 if he furnishes the parts and about $500 if you send him the parts.

Last I emailed Mike, he wasn't currently taking on any new plating projects at the moment.
