This set of seven plastic protectors fit underneath commonly damaged plastic parts. They deflect edge strikes; reinforce against airballs; and prevent metal from scratching up the back of plastics. The set includes guards for: both slingshots; the left and right target banks; the right target plastic; the top lane "nose" the and the visor. It also includes a washer for the right side of the top lane, and two spare washers for sandwiching previously damaged plastics. The set is designed to work with the original and new reproduction sets. These guards are made from impact resistant PETG and will not break from ball strikes. Product ships with blue protective film, remove for installation. Thanks to Cliffy and Kevin for their help with this project.
These plastics have been fit, install and play tested. However, there seem to be enough variations in machines that you may need to modify them slightly. You can work the plastic with a dremel, shears, drill, file, sharp knife, hammer and chisel, or just about any other tool that you could use on wood. Use slow speeds, the PETG will grab your tools if you get it too hot.
Pictures of the installed parts.
1) Don't overtighten! Hand tight + 1/4 turn is plenty. More than that, and things start to warp and crack.
2) The visor plastic is slotted at the back, With a bit of fiddling, you can install it without removing the visor.
