Hello
I'm new to Pinball and restoring a Williams Big Guns circa 1987. The back glass was broken and discarded by the previous owner. I need the channel material that hours the glass and picture. Does anyone know where I can find this?
Thanks

Here is the lift trim, as well as the trim for the other three sides of the glass/translite.

Will the side pieces be long enough? Big boy backglass in this one.

Pinball resource also carries them.

You can find translites for Big Guns.

Hope you have room for it - that sucker's tall!

That's right, I forgot--BG's backglass/translite is taller than most games--27" x 25-1/4"

Looks like the top, sides, and lift trim are a different style than the WPC trim that is widely available.

I think someone in the club thread mentioned just buying three sets of top trim and cutting two to fit

I was thinking about that, but I saw that the WPC top trim had a long edge for the back. I wasn't sure if that would interfere with lighting or not.

Maybe instead go with plastic trim from classic stern/bally for the sides?

I've been looking around at some place that has this PVC trim for glass. I found that Granger has some, but it doesn't look like it's any cheaper than Marco.

Has anyone found something generic that can be bought home improvement or builder supply store? I just think it's gotta be cheaper to get this U channel trim in bulk and cut to fit as needed.
