Some new art is available. Comes bloodied or non.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Wow, the non-bloodied BSD alternate translite is gorgeous. If you ever produce these for sale let the group know as I know I would buy one and I am sure that many others would as well.

This is the best alternate translite that I have ever seen for BSD.

Thanks for posting this Colsond3. Just ordered a few sets. Will they work with the factory audio as well as Pinsound?

Seeing how this has leaked out, this is the other artwork I was referring to in a previous post. I'll update when I recieve mine. Although I'll be using the other alt translite

Can someone please post some photos showing the location of the 24 and 10 Opto boards? I think my project machine is missing both.

*edit* found a photo on IPDB that shows the location of the 10 opto board. Where is the 24 Opto board located?

Yup, and there is definitely an improvement in the audio quality if you do. The original speakers are paper cone, so most of them are torn or separated, even if only slightly. My cab speaker was shredded.

I’m with you there. My cabinet is in excellent shape, and I almost want to decal right over it.

#6517 11 months ago

Anyone install radcals on their BSD? I have a set and I'm just in the middle of getting the cabinet prepped to install it. Should look really nice when it's done.

There was a post on it. Should be in archives. Looked really good. I was going to install the radcals but my cabinet cleaned up so well I invested in a pinsound board instead.

Well that’s a great choice too! Once I'm done I’ll see if there’s anything left in the piggy bank for a pinsound board as well.

I just installed my new BSD alternate translite today. It looks great and the colors are very vivid.

Mine are on the way, let me know how your install goes and any tips for a successful install. Particularly interested in how they can be repositioned to get lined up.

Never used those decals but I redrew the cabinet art for bsd about 10 years ago so I could print my own in case I ever needed to. This is my 3rd bsd and whoever had it before painted in the faded Dracula’s and it bugged me every time I looked at it. So I printed a set and redecaled it a couple of weeks ago.

I am interested in that too. I took out LEDs to go back to incandescent with the original. Wondering if I should go back to led for this bad boy

I did not change out any bulbs in the back box. I am using incandescent bulbs.

I’ll have to experiment when I get it. I had gone full LED about a year ago, but it seemed to be a bit too bright.

Switched it back to incans with some CW LED accents for the faces and moon, blue in the upper left corner for the Williams name, and red 8SMD flashers to simulate the fire burning in the center of the translite. (the white is a little more overbearing in the photos than in person)

Most of that seems like it should match up with the new translite.

I would assume since Pinstein posted all the images that he designed the new art that looks awesome!

Looking for a NOS or used in perfect shape translite. PM me, thanks.

With all the sales of this newest alt translite someone has to have an unscathed original translite they are willing to sell. PM me if so. Thanks.

Did you order an alt? Better than having nothing, or at least until you find an original.

I like the original, and wouldn’t want to separate it from my game completely (in the rare and unlikely event that I ever sold my game).

#6535 11 months ago

I have a original perfect translate. I'd give it you if you lived in PA. Ahh, too bad!!!!!!

Thanks Colson, my translite has a minor blemish and I am restoring the machine so looking for a cherry one. I might get pinstein’s but would prefer the original.

Haha, you would have some other excuse if I was still up there. I know you keep everything. You still even have that awful Hef Playboy translite socked away and that is scary awful.

#6538 11 months ago

So this turned out to be a nice buy. Real good quality. I really like how the flasher looks behind Dracula in upper right corner when he is talking.

Looks good! You got yours already? I didn’t get a notification from PayPal or eBay that mine has even shipped.

And is that John K’s old FG I see there?

Since I like you, I'm going to send you my very rare, perfect original Hef Playboy translite. No need to thank me. Just thinking of the look on your face is all I need!

Ordered mine this past Friday. Estimate delivery given is for July 17-25th. They are made per order so takes longer. I have 2 other alt. translites of his and they are very good quality.

You may want to check on your translight. I got an email from supplier right after I ordered asking which one I wanted. I definitely ordered after you.

No not John’s FG. This one is a partial restore that I picked up in a two for one trade out on LI. I thought I was going to sell it right away. Actually you can see pics of my for sale ad in the archives. Played it a few times while it was for sale and pulled down the for sale ad as I really liked it. One of my go to quick games.

Yeah, I indicated non bloody when I made the purchase. Didn’t get any email or message asking anything further.

I’m not worried about it. Was just surprised Sulli got his before me when he had ordered after me. And that he gets to enjoy it before I do...

I can’t wait to get it and post a picture with the red trim so Joe can really appreciate it.

#6546 11 months ago

Has anyone ordered and received the cabinet decals ? Should be getting mine this week ( non bloody ). Wanted to get some opinions on the quality.

#6547 11 months ago

Almost there with my bsd. New opto board, topside tear down, new rubbers, gi leds, cliffy’s where available, fixed and replaced multiple broken optos for mist and ramps, fixed incorrect castle and house mounts. Just needs a flipper rebuild, few broken plastics, pending parts and it’ll be a nice player.

My apologies to all who were interested in those BSD decals I posted. Upon my final press check I am unhappy with the quality of the output and cannot offer them for sale. Sorry for the let down.

#6549 11 months ago

Started a thread about differences between difficulty options in European vs US menu systems (noted in BSD Manual). Thought some BSD owners might be interested. More importantly, thought some BSD owners might have some knowledge to drop!

I am searching for an original printed BSD Instructions card. Anyone have one in good condition that they'd part with?
