Thought you guys might want to see what Cliffy's LOTR protectors look like plated in brass to match the game.
Sorry for the pic quality (I'm no photographer). These were done by Mike Chestnut.

What a really nice look and idea.

#4 6 years ago

Curious, as this looks really nice, but is it really a brass finish, or a brass color. im wondering if there would be any tarnishing over time

Mike Chestnut hpugto@gmail.com has been doing fabulous plating work for years and uses real brass which is then polished and then clearcoated with urethane clear.

Thanks for the great pics, Manic! The brass really puts that final polish on LOTR.

Since it was done by Mike Chestnut, and he specializes in plating. My guess would be it is actually brass.

edit: Cliffy beat me to it.

These look great, I might have to put this on the list of things to do to LOTR

#9 6 years ago

Get the protectors from your fave distrib or me and then send to Mike in Tennessee for plating.

I may send a few sets to Mike and keep plated ones stocked here. I did this with Addams Family sets in polished brass and still have 2 or 3 sets here for Addams. Full on polished brass on the ramp and playfield set. Man they are gorgeous.

Mike does great work. I'd definitely use him again.

#16 6 years ago

I am going to have to do this. I have some but haven't installed because the silver was bugging me. Especially the shire protector.

#17 6 years ago

Hey cliffy if you get some brass sets done up for lotr I will buy a set. Consider it a done deal. Just lmk how much and when. Txs!

#18 6 years ago

I had all my TAFG protectors done like this and all the ramp guards as well looks great.

#19 6 years ago

Same here Cliffy, if you get sets of LOTR protectors done in brass I will take one.
Thanks

Cliffy protectors at $ 70, and what the cost of polished brass ?

#21 6 years ago

I emailed Mike but never received a reply, too small of a job maybe?

Mike was real reasonable about it. Less than I expected. I hesitate to post the price I paid as things may change or he may even be able to do it cheaper.

To the other post about him not responding... I'd try again. He gets a load of requests (not just from pinball people) and can get swamped.

#23 6 years ago

I would be in for a brass set for LOTR. If someone did a brass set for ToM I would like to get one too.

I'd love to see installed pics while I wait for mine

@OP
How do you like that Palentir mod? Worth it?

Yeah I think so... I kinda miss the color changing led I had behind the original but this one is larger, actual glass and looks pretty classy. The eye effect is decent and pretty clever.

No regrets

Palantir mod YES! Cliffy plating? Not for me

Any of you guys that had this done have feedback after 3 years? I want to do, and was wondering if the brass plating held up over the years. Need to get my lock down bar redone and might as well go all out.

Thanks,
David

Mine only have about 100 plays since installing. For what that's worth they still look freshly plated.
