Just joined the club a few weeks ago and really enjoying it!

Working on fixing up the Wolverine toy, notice the back where it attaches to the post is cracked and breaking. So I used a cold weld on it and also put a layer of the cold weld on the lower part of the inside belt line to help strengthen it from cracking. Some of the paint was worn off of the belt and sides of the figure, was able to match pretty closely with my Testors paint.

Quick couple of questions. To help protect the paint on Wolverine from continued damage, I've been thinking about using clear engine enamel. Has anybody had any experience with using it to protect any pinball parts from damage and if so how has it held up? Any other recommendations for protection that may work better?

Quoted from vbittnv:

Order the Newton ball mod, get rid of wolverine. Its how the game was meant to be played.

Not really interested in the Newton ball mod, I actually like the Wolverine toy/bust. Just want to figure out the best way to keep it in good shape.

So the the gate wire form in the back of the Magneto lock broke on my pro machine. I can't seem to find the part number in the manual. Does anyone know the part number?

Quoted from DugFreez:

If you are looking on-line at the manual on the Stern website........ that thing is horrible with a lot of pages missing. It makes me glad I pulled my manual out of my game and have it protected in a nice binder where I can refer to it instead of having it folded in a bag in the cabinet.
It is actually 2 separate part numbers. One for the bracket that mounts at the top and another part number for the wireform. The part numbers are:
I remember having a bit of a hard time finding these at one time. I had to order them from an obscure distributor that really gouged me on the shipping. It look like Marco is your best bet on the wireform:

Thanks! Yeah, I only have the online manual and it looked like it was missing a lot. I'll have to pick up a printed manual at some point. I was searching parts for X-Men on Marco, but without the part number I couldn't find it.

Quoted from FatPanda:

You can always go to Hobby Lobby, or JoAnne and get piano wire (sometimes called music wire) and bend your own also.
This is the only thickness listed on their website, but there are other thicknesses available. Take a piece of the broken gate with you.

That's a good idea too. Actually I think that I have some piano wire laying around somewhere. I'll have to see it it's the right thickness.
