My Pink Panther is missing a bunch of playfield plastics. What should I use to make replacements? For now I'd be happy to just find a suitable translucent colored plastic.
As a side note I've been hunting for the plastics for 4 months and haven't found any for sale yet. I really just need something so that I can play the game for now.

Thanks for the help.

Quoted from Arcane:

You probably tried this, but did you ask Steve Young at PBR if he had any?
A miracle is always possible.

It was one of my first stops on the road to failure ; )

Quoted from Freeplay40:

Check out TAP Plastics. There are a couple locations in San Jose. Tap Plastics provides cut to order acrylic, Lexan and other plastics and at least at the store here in Lynnwood, WA, they have a scrap bin that they sell by the pound. For $3-$5 you can get more than enough to do all the plastics. My recommendation would be 1/8" Lexan (Polycarbonate). I make my own protectors as well as new plastics with water slide decals (Only make them for myself, sorry). The plastics can be rough cut with a band saw, scroll saw a Dremel or even a hack saw, then finished on either belt sander or with a Dremel with sanding drums. If you sand the edges with finer and finer sandpaper you can ultimately polish them to be perfectly clear.

Thanks for suggestion. Tap is literally 15 minutes from my office. Gonna hit them up at lunch.
