Just finished my custom paint job on my buildings. Added green light to the mausoleum on the grave yard.
It took a while to cut out the four windows. Very thick material.

Working on a coffin mod. Had planned to lift the lid only very little to let the red light spread out. Will use some red velvet to sit the coffin on and use some real small stones or some stone paneling to modify the base. Definitely not using the goofy looking Dracula they used in the original coffin.

Quoted from TechnicalSteam:

I like where the Coffin Mod above with casket was going. I'd just make some kind of Stone platform to go under i to replace the atrocious original plastic.

Yes I'm working on improving the base the casket sits on. I'm trying to find a 3D rock sheet they use in model trains to wrap it. I like the idea of it looking like real rock.

I started to prepare a new set of decals for my machine. The first thing I did was to improve the ultra low resolution dracula/wolf "logo" to how it is meant to look. In the original version you don't recognise Dracula's face at all! I also intensified the red colour to match my blood red powder coating.

That looks great!! Good idea.

Why would anybody make him stop making those decals? They looked awesome.

Quoted from Jakemate:

Hello from Portugal
I've picked up a poorly bsd last month, never had a pinball before but I've managed to strip down the playfield, clean it up, replace rubbers and lamps and it's a lot happier.
I wouldn't have managed it if it wasn't for reading posts on this forum from great knowledgeable people on here.
Unfortunately I have a couple of issues that I haven't resolved.
Even when I hit plenty of left ramp shots the diverter doesn't drop down even though it tests fine in the test menu.
Also what might be linked but I'm not sure is if you hit a weak left ramp shot (diverter doesn't drop) and the ball drop down into the castle lock area it locks but then the solenoid drops the bar and releases it into the launch lane and also loads another ball causing two balls to be launched.
I've checked castle lock optos which test fine, can anyone help!
Many thanks in advance

If the diverted works in test mode make sure that the ramp switch works. If the ramp switch does not registered it will not tell the CPU to drop the diverter.

Installed my new high resolution custom decals. Back box to follow. Love the intense bood red colour and the high resolution Dracula head.
Printed on new generation air release vinyl too.

Quoted from mollyspub:

That's great but those so called protectors are going to ruin your new decals !

Not if you use the metal spacer/protector underneath. I like the look of the plastic "protectors" so I always use the metal protectors underneath.

Very happy with my "blood" red trim colour to match my new high resolution decals.
I left the coin door black as a contrast and I think the door in red would have been too much.

I made some decals to go over the ultra low resolution Dracula head of the original cabinet decals. One for coin door and two for side decals. This is for those who do not want to fully redecal their cabinets.
US$22.50 including postage World wide.

Quoted from Medisinyl:

I'm digging these decals, but is the image off due to the way these are produced, or installation? It's also missing a chunk of the art at the bottom of the cabinet. I borrowed this image from the gallery, but factory games all have the decals lined up as one image with the extra artwork at the bottom.
Awaiting the CPR backglass, and may decide to overhaul these other aspects afterward (BSD currently in a line-up, but will be on its own when GB leaves). These decals seem to be a good candidate if they can be installed with the factory alignment and artwork.[quoted image]

Because the new Dracula head has a longer beard it sits a little higher when compared to the original head. I positioned the side decal further down to make sure the head is not partially covered by the side rail.

I'm doing a custom "gothic edition",
Cab nearly finished just waiting on custom playfield now.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

That looks awsome!

They are quite thin so it should be barely noticeable. Obviously the better choice is to get the full set of new cabinet decals.

Being locked up and bored I made some Dracula coin door decals. Three styles. Each is $10 including postage.

Quoted from Jakemate:

I've ordered a new 24 opto board from here.
Not a homepin board as out of stock here.
This board costs less too.
Also I ordered the two opto boards from this company just in case.
I'll post back once it arrives and I install it.

Available right here on pinside at the lowest price.
