Thought my Atlantis could us a new sub since the original broke and looked like *** anyway. (still in the works...) but first placed a shark cage, moved left top flasher in there and added a real shark as bonus.

Parts of the submarine being prepared (made a hole in the front glass so the ball can be shoot out).

Sub looks nice! I'll be waiting to see what the final product looks like. Mine is completely stripped down on the upper playfield for touch ups, would be nice to figure out a mod when assembly time comes again.

Did you make the submarine or is it from a toy?

It's a toy (Playmobil, also the shark cage and shark itself) some customization is needed however to fit the sub onto the playfield. But in the end you get a nice sub for only 15 dollars or so.

What color do you suggest, maybe black for the orange part? (although the orange color is the same as some targets)

Always good to give this game some love and attention.
I kind of like the shark, seems a good size and not a bad location, but personally I would not put that cage in. The cage looks like it's blocking the view of the lane above it.

maybe a metallic yellow, or candy apple yellow with black accents. Usually sub stuff is yellow or black. I'd do amber candy apple orange.
