If you have the vault edition, then you can adjust that window with a screwdriver I believe.

Quoted from adam12hicks:

Hi guys! I'm super late to the party, but I just traded for a super clean AC/DC 2018 Luci re-issue. Everything works flawlessly but I need a quick assist on two things.
1 - What can I use to VERY slightly raise the lower playfield glass so that it's flush? It has a small lip that definitely changes the trajectory of the ball.
2- Does anyone know what powdercoat / color Stern used for these? My side armor has a small chip out of it so I want to take it to the folks who have done my other pins and have it re-finished.
Other than that, it has the big topper with the bells and logo / horns, some minor playfield mods and the latest code. In 9.5/10 condition easily. Just needs to be played
Thank you!

Welcome to the club. It’s such a great game. Just fired mine up tonight for the first time in probably 6 months. I forgot how awesome this game is.

I also have a Luci vault and needed to raise the lower play field window. I took one of the screws out and brought it with me to Home Depot. I found some tiny o-rings that fit it perfectly.

Take the entire window out. Insert the screws into all of the holes and carefully flip it upside down. Then put an o-ring on every screw (some may need two). They should be tight enough to hold the screws in place when you flip it back over. Then just screw it back down gently and tighten as needed til it’s all flush. Not all screws will be super tight and that’s OK. The o-rings kind of act as a lock washer. I did this to mine when I got it NIB and haven’t had to adjust it since. Butter smooth now.

Good luck and enjoy the game!

Perfect - thank you! I’ll do that today. Were the o-rings in the pull out drawers or are they fit something specific? Seems so small!

Quoted from Sparky:

Some song replacements, a band replacement, and a flame topper. I'll probably light the topper with pulsing red led strip. I also put a red Glo ball in the lower playfield.
I have the Luci VE, which has the removable Hell clear cover with flathead screws. I'll be getting those powder coated black.[quoted image][quoted image]

I always did think this game had a regrettable lack of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap in it!

I think I found them in the drawers.

When I pulled my vault window, it already had rubber washers and rubber o-rings.

Ditto mine came with them installed.

Was yours perfectly flush or did you need to adjust?

Maybe mine did too. Either way, I added more to flush it up.

I was not satisfied with the way it came from the factory. So I removed it, cleaned it up and reinstalled it. I have from time to time needed to adjust it when I see balls start being deflected. I am sure it changes throughout the year with temperature and humidity. It is easy enough to adjust when I clean the playfield.

Just found the same. Thanks all! Just got mine adjusted and it's all good now

Now to try and improve this audio a little bit. Wish it wasn't so compressed, but it is what it is.

Get a Pinwoofer kit, I struggled with my first AC/DC to get good sound. When I bought my second new one I installed the pinwoofer kit, heard sounds I never knew existed before.

#2913 6 days ago

Absolutely agree. AC/DC deserves pinwoofer. You can feel the bass and the BB speakers smoke the stock speakers but the amp is the key. Everybody says you can hear things you never heard before and its true. Speakers alone just can't do the job. Install and enjoy!

#2914 5 days ago

I went Pinwoofer in mine too. Highly recommended.

#2915 5 days ago

I just went external sub. Cheaper and you can attach multiple games to it at once. I honestly don't see any other real issues iwth the audio quality on this pin. Damn thing shakes my windows. Most people aren't going to have this cranked to 100 while playing.

With the Pinnovator PinPAC 2 SAM MAC addition and external self powered sub woofer, I cannot make the volume on my machine above about 50% or it is so loud that the neighborhood outside my house will hear it and people in my house are greatly disturbed. Honestly, at about setting 32, I cannot tell if the shaker vibrates the machine as much as the speakers. And the external sub woofer is only at about 50% of the total range.

That's pretty much me too. I think I keep it at around 45 before people start getting annoyed. I sometimes crank it to 50 or so when I'm home alone.

The pinwoofer kit wasn't about how loud I could get the game. It improved the sound quality tremendously. I've actually removed a number of external subs from my games after installing this kit.

+1 ~ PinWoofer for the win in ALL music PINS! CLEAR and LOUD!

I think I need to mention that with the Pinnovator kit, I can hear sounds on the headphones and over the sub woofer, that I could not hear before. Granted, my hearing is not perfect, but the sound was also improved with this product. I have not heard the sound improvement with the Pinwoofer kit, but I am sure that it is also an improvement to the sound quality. My guess is that the dynamic range of the speakers are more fully realized with these sound amplification products. In my case, the external sub woofer gave more clear definition to the lower range of frequencies, in particular.

A few years ago before EXPO, I created a simple fix for the open area above the band in the upper right corner.

Simply remove the two existing screws near the top of the band and attach the scaffold.

It is designed to look like concert scaffolding. There are a few spot lights hanging from the front which are painted black. Although it may not be as nice as the other band covers available, it will finish off the bare roof area and let the light from the existing flasher pass right through for effect.

I made extra. If anyone wants one, I will list them in the Marketplace.
