    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    Now put a Comet 6.3v 7 led strip in the center drain and see what happens.

    Mounted to the apron? Where? Pics, please.

    Quoted from NicoVolta:

    For GI... none yet, sadly. Both companies offer a "retro" bulb with clear dome which strives to duplicate the original look of incandescent type 44/47's. Unfortunately, neither are warm enough for me. Cointaker's is known as the warm white retro ($1.29 or $1.10 after discount). Comet calls it the 1 LED Retro Look bulb which is a mere 49 cents. Between the two, the Comet is warmer and easier on the eyes. If Comet managed to warm up the tone, this would be a killer bulb to re-lamp an entire playfield with. Ah, finally! Until then, it's best to stick with type 47 incandescents for all direct-view bulb locations.

    I was actually impressed with Comet's retro bulbs when I gave them a try--they seemed to match up well enough for me. The brightness and color temperature seemed to match up pretty close to an incandescent.

    Quoted from SuperPinball:

    The fuse was the original. Should we be changing fuses too when converting to LEDs?

    No stay with the original value per manual. The fuse is good right, you took it out and tested it.

    I don't have a picture for Getaway but it looks the same as on the 2 pictures of HS. The 3rd picture is the strip mounted on Mustang. On all games with the metal ball chute piece the mounting is the same as Mustang. Just make sure the strip is mounted as high as it will go so the ball doesn't hit it. Then alligator clip it under the pf to a near buy sling bulb. And before you stick it down move it from side to side when it's lit and watch the shadow of the flippers so the light is centered.

    Just a heads up warm white temps among bulbs will vary from run to run on occasion from the same factory. Not always but definitely happens.
