    I just got a spiderman and am looking for pics of all modded spidermans out there. I would like to order the pinbits protective set however I see they have a blue set and clear does anybody have pics of these? Also I see these really cool looking colored webbies. How do I remove the old ones they are riveted. Any other suggestions are welcomed. I cant believe how fun and fast this pin plays. Thanks guys Shovelhed.

    The webbed side rails I believe were only for the Black version correct? Or are they aftermarket as well? Back Alley Creations as some cool stuff.

    Mine came NIB with black webbed siderails.

    For more info about mods, go to the pinside search function and type "sm mods". That will get you a few old threads with pictures.

    I've modded my doc ock with LEDs in his tenticles, how does one load pictures up and post here on pinside? Newbie question I know but would rather get it right than post a picture that expands to 20 times it size

    Jon, look at the bottom left side where it says Attach Images or Files. You just click the Browse button and select the picture from your computer.

    You must have had something else on your mind the first 3 times you read it

    Some of the later SM Blacks came with webbed side rails. You can however buy aftermarket ones from Steve Ritchie.

    You have to drill out the rivets on the colored plastic webbies then bolt the new ones in.

    My bad should have been more specific I'm using my iPhone is it possible to upload from it? I cannot seem to click the choose file button.

    Yeah I have never drilled out a rivet. I was hoping there was a safer way. I just dont want to break anything.

    Drilling the rivets is how I did it as well. Not too difficult put rag down to cover area over playfield and just take your time drilling them out. I would add the Laseriffic Topper it is pretty amazing IMO. Link to some pics.

    Are you talking about Jon and his lit tenticles? If so, could you do him and us a favor and post the pictures here since he only has an IPhone.

    Just the thread I needed to show off my Black Spidey.

    I have the blue etched plastic protectors from Pinbits. I love the way they look. You don't even notice the blue...the actual etching is the only blue in it and I think that is just so you can see the design. I have only seen pics of their other webbed protectors on their site, but I really can't imagine them looking as good as the etched ones when installed. You can also see I added a GI light under the Spider-Man and American flag plastic in the pic of the Spider Sense lane protector.

    I also have a red DMD cover and speaker Spiders from Pinbits.

    I have colored webbies installed. The red and yellow were from Steve Ritchie's website. They were a bit of a pain to install. Doc Ock wasn't to bad, but Sandman was a pain in the butt. Everyone talked about how easy it is....it's only easy if you have a privot drill or something like that. A tool I had honestly never heard of. I eneded up and finally got the rivets drilled out with a lot of cussing and greif. Looking back it would be easy if you had the above mentioned tool, and if not, it would probably be easier than I did it if you remove the back board from the playfield.

    The green and blue webbies come from Fabrication Unlimited:

    http://www.etsy.com/shop/FabricationUnlimited

    These were also a bit harder to put on than first expected. A lot of ramps and plastics had to be stripped, but it was still easier than drilling out the rivets. I really like each villian getting it's own color matched web.

    You can also see I have the Back Alley Creations Sandman "legs" installed. I like this...others don't. I can understand why. I think it adds to the baren area that is the big clear Sandman plastic...others think it blocks the view. To each his own, but I like it.

    I have NoFlix+ LEDs under the inserts from pinballcenter.eu and color matching LED in each villians spot lights (cointaker narrow beams in Venom and Green Goblin, Ultras in the Doc Ock and Sandman). I also have target decals and think a game without them looks naked and unfinished.

    The last pic to mention is my back box. A lot of work has went into this. It was originally a Cointaker color changing LED board. Then a got a bare (just wires, harness and sockets) kit from Arcade Upkeep. Then I wired my own relay control so I could switch the backboard to always on, always off, or on/off controlled with the machines GI lights. Having the backboard turn off when the games GI lights went off really addded some extra punch to the flashers. I have super bright color matching flasher behind each villian. I know some folks don't like the color matching with the villians on Spidey, but I have fully embraced it. Matching webs, spots and flashers behind the backglass.

    I have many other mods and additions on my Black Spidey. I feel like it's pretty modded, but still not too over the top.

    Cut the old web off with small sharp side cutters. Then cut the rivet with cutters and reshape the end you cut with pliers and pull the rivet out. No drill needed.

    Pinbit webbed protectors are a must add they look great IMO. Here are some old pics of mine that show the webs in near the slings. Blue LED's around them make them glow a blue color pretty cool effect. If you need some more detailed pics let me know I am sure I could snap a few.

    Seems pretty easy....if you don't mind trashing your original webs.

    I have to say I like the design of Steve's aftermarket webbed rails better than the ones officially included on Black spiderman.

    We make all 5 webs if desired, We do the 3 standard webs typically in Red, Yellow and Light Blue, but can do them in just about any color you want.... We've done a set in black for someone with a BSM....

    They are not listed on the website Dug linked above, but that's one way to get a hold of us (plus if you want some bonus points with the wife we can include some jewelry in your order.... ) Or you can message me here, or if you search for spiderman pinball on ebay they will come up. I keep forgetting to add the GG and Venom webs to the Ebay listing. Total set is $45 +$5 shipping. Can do just one if you want or up to all 5 in your choice of colors....

    To start off, I powder coated all mine in bright red. (Room is dark so the pictures are darker than it really is).

    Then I added the back alley mods, LEDs, shaker, sub, web slings, topper, PDI glass.

    Is that the original side rails? They look just like the ones on BSM. I've never seen them this style except on BSM.
