Mr. Pinball Tip:

One cause of fractured plastics is mis-aligned wireforms. If a wireform's holddown fastener points are not well-aligned the playfield (that is, if you have to force the wireform to fit by bending it), it can place stress on the plastics around the fasteners and eventually cause them to fracture. Carefully bend the wireforms so they install without placing any pressure or stress on the playfield holddown points.
