Price check for a nice example with a clean, unfaded cabinet and no errors?

It's been years since I owned a BSD, back when they were $1200-$1500. I know those days are long gone.

I just brought home a BSD, and the first issue I noticed is the playfield glass is touching the top of the tombstone cross. It drags along the top edge when I slide the glass in & out, and I'm afraid it could get snapped off. Also, it's causing the sticker on top of the tombstone to peel back.

Is anyone else having this issue?

Any ideas for an easy fix?

#615 7 years ago
Quoted from joe2012:

hi nor cal, are you talking about the metal tombstone behind the coffin? if so there is a screw on top that needs to be tightened. joe

Thanks, Joe! That screw on the top piece did need tightening, but the glass is still dragging the front piece of the tombstone. You know, the cross-shaped one with the lamps. Is it possible to lower that thing?

I'm looking to upgrade my BSD to an even nicer BSD. If anyone has a top condition BSD in the SF Bay Area/Nor Cal area that you'd let go, please pm me with details & price.

p.s. Willing to pay good money, but not looking to own the record for Highest Price Ever Paid for BSD.

Thanks

Quoted from Raven2012:

Just finished with mine, this machine was left for dead but i blew new eternal life into it

LOL. "Our love (for BSD) is stronger than death!"

Does that chrome molding use adhesive, or did you route a track for it?

Also, is that the Pinballbulbs LED kit? If so, would you recommend it?

Just wanted to put in a good word for pinballbulbs.com. I just finished installing their BSD lighting kit and it looks fantastic. It was about $200 (choke), but you get more than just bulbs. 2 led light strips and 4 spotlights are included. Their color choices are goo, and I really like what the light strips added to the game.

Only downsides for me were several missing bulbs (which they were quick to ship out once I alerted them), and having to pry the caps off several frosted bulbs. For the sockets that call for supers (aka clears) why not just send clears? The frosted caps are glued on and not all came off easily.

All-in-all a great purchase. My BSD looks amazing.

#1347 6 years ago
Quoted from CptAwesomest:

Post some pics! id like to see the look of the kit if yah wouldn't mind. Im going to be tackling LEDs on my BSD soon enough.

Will do! Can't this weekend, but next week for sure.

#1377 6 years ago

As promised, pics of my BSD after installing the Pinballbulbs.com kit. It also has the Gothic Cross mod, Cliffy set, plastic protectors, Pinball Pro speakers, and chrome back box trim. There are no limits to science!

Quoted from kevinleedrum:

Some of the choices are odd (the one red multiball insert, the four spolights, and having blue instead of red in the back right corner)... But it's actually pretty awesome.

I wasn't sure if the spotlights were needed, but now that they're in I really like them. The PF artwork is much more visible and really pops, and it's easier to play in the dark.

All that blue in the back is from an LED light strip mounted above. There's also an LED strip in the ball trough (purple I think). "There are no limits to science."

Quoted from mcclad:

I keep looking at the pictures. What a sharp looking machine.

Thanks! One of the best '90s art packages IMO. A real beauty. Makes my new Sterns look soulless.

I'm liking the chrome! How much did it set you back? How difficult was it to get the side rails off and on?

Anyone got non-ghosting patched rom?

Check Ebay. I've seen them there for about $10.

BSD down! My game has a short. Report says Ground Short on row 3. Same fuse keeps blowing and killing the power to the opto board. No point in continuing to replace the fuse until finding and eliminating the cause for the short. Any ideas on what could be causing it? It seems to occur when lifting the playfield up and down. My tech came out today and was unable to identify the culprit. He took the CPU board with him to run some tests to make sure it's not a bad chip or something. Process of elimination.

Quoted from gatordad:

Well hopefully your tech will find whats wrong but if you still had the board, look at the report and find the same colored wires on the cpu board, unhook that connector and power up the game, if the error goes away you have a something shorted at the playfield level if error is still present with that particular connector removed its at the board level.

Good tip! I'll definitely try that.

I usually think aftermarket toppers looks like crap, but that one is bad ass! Care to share where you got it and how you lit it up?

#1597 6 years ago
Quoted from Thor-NL:

Well thank you sir
It's more of a DIY topper.
I used an model Horizon Dracula in Battlesuit (but more of a Thailand spin-off )
Like this : ebay.com link ยป Hor040 Bram Stokers Dracula In Armor
Assemble and paint.
Feeded two orange prewired LED's (6-16V) for his eyes. Thought it was too bright, and used fragments of a Cointaker frost dome to tone it down some notches.
Put a red-spot at the base, shining upwards and giving that Shadow on the ceiling.
Leeched 12V through the vent holes from the powerboard.
The model kit comes with full size legs, but due to ceiling clearance i had to make the Luitenant Dan version
As compensation he holds a pinball

Thanks for taking the time to post this. I'd love to do something similar to my BSD, but unfortunately I'll need to sell it pretty soon due to the Hobbit I just ordered. Possibly a stupid ass move. I guess I'll find out when Hobbit comes out.

Quoted from CptAwesomest:

Alternately, if you want to spend a little more and move to LED you can get a red X-PIn

Don't need one for this game. The stock DMD is standard orange/amber. The red film on the speaker panel makes it red.
