Quoted from oldschoolbob:

The dark blue matches the play-field.

But not the orginial design of the of the apron. It does look great though.

Quoted from goingincirclez:

But the Classic Arcades one has a HORRIBLE flaw in the "flipper button" lettering: poor kerning, bad arc, misalignment... Also compare the "For Amusement Only", the coloring of the Stern logos, and the quality of the concentric arcs below them. Astounding.

I got a Paragon apron decal from them that had all of the same problems. It wasn't even close. Never again.

I agree with much of what has been posted. However, I would have sent it back on my next trip to the post office for the $6.00.

He recently printed me a williams king pin plexiglass, i am very happy with it. He answered my questions in a timely manner and sent it out immediately. My first and only experience with him. I do not think it is crap quality by any means. I mean, i wish there were a silk screened glass option available, but otherwise, the product is exactly what i expected.

So he could resell it? I would have burned it and posted the video

Quoted from Methos:

Buying from this company is literally like playing Russian Roulette.

That pretty much sums it up. I always did ok with him on decals and such but he sold me a load of "fully tested working" Bally lamp and solenoid boards that were about 50/50, and a custom-made "Bally lamp matrix tester" that was absolutely worthless.

Life is too short haven't bought anything there in a decade.

Too bad PPS is in bed with Classic Arcades. PPS shut down Pinball Rescue on making WMS and Bally artwork. They are clearly superior to Classic Arcades's stuff.

Good to see this guy is still talking about this...

PPS is not in bed with anyone. If you want to sell "licensed" products you need to buy the hologram stickers from PPS. Minimum order of 20 at $15 each and you can turn out a crappy product. He does not care about the quality or accuracy. He just wants his $15 per product.

Quoted from barakandl:

At the same time PPS claimed they were working with several other other venders ramping up production for parts for older Williams and Bally EM games. So far none of it has shown up on their website....

Don't kid yourself. Why would PPS send me a PRIVATE email then send a copy to Classic Arcades.

Quoted from oldschoolbob:

Rick and Jeff are in it together - Rick sent me a private e-mail then copied Jeff. I will not deal with either of them.

I started this topic 5 months ago to inform others about the crappy sticker I got from Classic Arcade. I answered a few comments then dropped it.

One month (and 29 comments) later someone else brought it back up - not me. I then said that the problem was resolved (as far as I was concerned) with a new decal from Pinball Rescue.

Four months (and 16 comments) later someone else brings it up again. I can't help it if Classic Arcades keeps screwing people over and they post it here.

Jjsmooth, I suggest you read and understand all of the comments before you accuse me of not moving on.

I bought several items from Classic Arcades. It's about a 50/50 shot. Half were way to small, half fit. It's a shame they don't push for perfection. I think they could do really nice work if they went the extra step.

I hate ebays returns policy, I once had a seller in england ship me the wrong item. Totally different item to what I was buying, not even open to debate that they had messed up. Paypal and ebay's disputes had them agree to refund me only if I paid the shipping back to england which was substantial.

Haha. Love how people rip you when they don't even take the freaking time to look at the dates and who's rehashing it. Face. Palm.

It's been way longer than that since I purchased one of his sanctum decals for Shadow. The machine is long gone, but the memory remains...

I bought an expensive decal and the colors were very, very badly off. Wish I would have taken the time to look for this thread beforehand.

All he would say is other people didn't complain, and he kept changing the subject to my installation methods, etc.

He would not address the pic I sent him about how badly the colors were off.

I recently picked up a project Firepower and have been shopping for a stencil kit. I'm going to restore it myself. I found one on EBay and just before I clicked the buy button the picture of the classic arcade guy reminded me of something. I seemed to remember reading a thread about this seller. Glad I remembered this thread, took me a while to find it again but thanks to the op on this one....I think I just "dodged a bullet"
I'm going to learn from others and take the advice to buy from Pinballpimp. Why try a shady seller over a $10 difference?

You will love the stencils from Pinballpimp. He cuts them to order, they have the correct recognition marks, and are near perfect reproductions of the original art.

I'm glad I saved another buyer from being taken by this guy. Just 10.00 more - I'm sure you'll be much happier.
Good luck on your project.
