You have seen my Bell Block covers but recently I helped a mate with his great idea - Band Member mod for the Premium and LE machines.

The Band Member mod covers the solenoids and wiring etc and really tidies up the back right corner very nicely. It is made out of mirror stainless steel and has red acrylic in behind it, so you can upgrade your flasher to bright LED and light up AC/DC logo during game play.

It mounts in between the band members plastic and the steel from the assembly. You loosen the screws spread the plastic from the frame and slide it in between then re-tighten the screws - done in a couple of minutes.

The package is for the:
1 x Band Member mod
and
1 x Bell Cover - Plain, Hells Bell, or Luci Bell

= $95 + postage (which will be approximately $15 to US and $20 to Europe).
+ $5 more for a red version of the Hells Bell or the Luci Bell.

(all in Australian dollars and due to our dollar not being so good this will be a bit cheaper for you).

Also I contacted Terry and he is unable to sell due agreements with Stern as the item has a AC/DC logo.

At this stage I will only have 3 - 5 packages available and if no interest for 3 minimum none will be heading overseas.

bump for the US guys,

How much for just the band cover?

Quoted from SealClubber:

$55 plus postage (which is approx $15-$20 if from Dan) but Dan is in Melbourne so if anyone just wants that then I won't be selling it by itself. We thought to couple the 2 mods to make it a better buy with postage.

How ironic. I was just talking to another AC/DC owner about how we should make something to cover that ugly opening. I'm really surprised their aren't more mods for this yet since it seems to be the most incomplete looking part of the pin.

A little outside my willing to spend meter so I'll still try to make something on my own but this is a real good idea and will make several people happy.

#7 5 years ago

one pinsider locked in, and need another 2 people at least to make it happen - have until this time tomorrow otherwise no go.

#8 5 years ago

Count me in, I will commit to the corner band member mod and a black luci's bell cover.

Hell's Bells may be the name of the song, but that is the one Hell's Bell on the playfield!

Hi VegasAlleyCat, you are in

and for anyone else interested just watch here if any bail out and you have a chance to get one.

Also I agree and which is why I opted for the Bell not Bells as you are hitting THE Hells Bell in the game.

You have pictures of one(band member mod) without it being installed so we can all see exactly how it mounts in?

Thanks

don't have the parts yet to photograph, but the screws at the front are loosened and then you slide the mod into a gap and re-tighten - very quick and very simple and easily removable for maintenance.

But shouldn't it be Hell's Bell (with an apostrophe?). That is kinda why I opted for the plain version instead...

Don't have any pictures of the mod uninstalled?

Quoted from vdojaq:

no as it isn't my mod, and it's in the mail to me today as just teaming up with a mate to make it more affordable with postage together. Each item sent on it's own is $15.50 to the US or $15.50 together so effectively a $15.50 saving.

Hope that helps

Quoted from RobertWinter:

the album refers to Hells Bells with no apostrophe - maybe the Aussie's poor grammar but since it is one bell the mod with the famous no apostrophe AC/DC approach is Hells Bell.

Actually an interesting point and in many articles it is referred to as AC/DC Grammar, and they even acknowledge it on their own website.
"This is a near complete AC/DC album even if they don’t use an apostrophe."

Here are a few pics of my one. These mods are very quick and easy to install or remove. I am pretty sure Dan can make ones with blue acrylic for those that have a BIBLE machine.

I made up two LED strips and stuck them to the underside using double sided tape (pretty crude but very effective). The LED strip is connected to the existing flasher connection and really makes the ACDC lettering pop. The normal flasher didn't quite light up the 'DC' enough for my liking.
