When a new machine shows up, part of the unboxing process here is to apply nylon washers to every leg bolt so the action of tightening (or removing) the bolt doesn't chew up the beautiful powdercoating used so widely now days.
I did not realize this practice was not commonly known or practiced, but I highly recommend it. So I have taken it upon myself to make leg bolt washer kits available in colors (as well as black and also white for the minimalists out there). Each of these kits contains 8 nylon washers, which is enough for all the leg bolts on one pinball machine. Whatever color you choose, the protection these provide is the gift. The silent glances of reverence from your friends when they see the care you take with your chosen machines to the smallest detail is a bonus for which there is no additional charge.
NOTE: Colors besides Black and White base colors are $1 more per pack. Also, due to dye lot variance, the same color may be slightly different if you buy it again months or years apart.
1. Three colors of red? Help me understand the pinmonkian ways of this madness. What is the difference?
Flame Red is red with an orange cast to it, like fire.
Fruit Punch Red is red with a pinkish cast to it, like the party drink we call "fruit punch" here. It may be called something else where you live.
Red is a classic dark brick red.
Fruit Punch Red looks like Red, with a little extra "pop" from the pink cast. It is much more subtle than the orange tone in the Flame Red, so even if you put Red and Fruit Punch Red side by side, the difference is very minor, though plain Red is maybe a little darker.
2. What's the difference between these and the plush ones?
If you look at the pictures, there are comparison pictures for the standard and plush to demonstrate the difference. The plush are thicker and a little wider than the standard nylon washers to provide better coverage. Both the standard and plush will protect legs from being chewed up by the bolts.
