    I think we've all got 'em. I bought my first pinball earlier this year, and now have a second that's a project machine that I got for cheap to learn on (D&D). My Whirlwind, my first pin, is in almost perfect shape, except for one broken plastic that I can't find a replacement for anywhere. It's the long, thin plastic, just above the yellow NW target, to the left of the upper ramp. I scour everywhere, follow every lead, and can't find it. (So if anyone has one, please PM me! =D)

    So that's my piece, what's yours?

    wish I could help, replacement plastics for my Hurricane are hard to find as well, will keep an eye out.

    Batcave for Batman Forever. It's a monster big piece that I expect to never find a replacement for sadly...

    Perhaps get a high resolution scan and have it custom cut.

    the 'jump' ramp for my No Fear, it's not shot, but the magnets have burned it a bit and I want it running/looking that much nicer.

    Seemingly everything else on that NF is able to be found! I'll be getting the replacement plastics set and will have PLENTY left over! GREAT!

    Marco used to have jump ramps in stock. Seems that was in the past, though.

    The magnet burn problem damaged A LOT of jump ramps, and that's probably why they're harder to find than most other parts. Plus, without the cliffy protector, jump ramps get torn up real bad (right above the flipper, because the stock ball guide doesn't go high enough). Funny - the part I had a problem with on my No Fear was the standup target assembly. It was surprisingly hard to cut that piece of metal to replace it - it was not meant to be made manually.
