This is a design specifically for flipper bats - Bat Cap - that sits on top of the bat to give it a tyre tread look for those car themed pins. Unfortunately Shapeways doesn't offer a polished black material other than the detail black (which is dearer). The regular black plastic material is slightly grainy to touch so if you use that option you will need to probably use a dab of silicon glue to hold down to the bat and not the double sided tape. With any installation the top of the flipper bat with the bat cap will need to be cleaned with something like metho that air dries. You can use a strong double sided tape or a few dabs of silicon glue to hold the cap down onto the bat. Make sure you leave it for at least 24hrs if you use silicon glue before playing and change your rubber before fitting as well. If you chose a different colour plastic like the white or polished metal you could paint up to get that real tyre look or a dusty road look. Also my apologies with Shapeways not showing the tread as unfortunately I did the design opposite to Shapeways favoured view - I included a screen shot to show the detail of the tread. Lastly this is best suited to a generic dmd flipper bat with out the WMS logo on top as it may affect the adhesion.
