Quoted from Walleyefisher:

Still waiting on torches

yep, 13+ months without any sort of update on these. it's kind of disappointing that he's been working on [and selling] other mods when there are people who have paid for this one ages ago.

#502 2 years ago
Quoted from pinball_customs:

Sorry for all the hangups, I've refunded and sent your decal free of charge.
Also, please see the link below, it may offer a little more insight as to what's been going on
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/special-announcement-from-pinball-customs

I will let you know as soon as that envelope arrives. Still have the money in my PayPal account that I can resend to you. As a postal employee I know it's always our fault when that envelope doesn't make it after 22 days or more.

#503 2 years ago

Brock,

I did get the two shooter rods!

Thank you very much for sending them as they are great! I appreciate the handiwork that went into both of them.

I wanted to post this to help the rest of this thread. Brock came through for me.

Regards,

Jim B.

#504 2 years ago

Thanks Jim

The biggest hangup on the torches is my lack of electronics skills - "Dammit Jim, I'm an artist not an engineer!" I've offered full refunds to all who want them, so please don't hesitate to ask.

I haven't been producing any new mods in quite some time, but rather I've been helping other companies keep up with their orders since November of last year. Unfortunately I can't say anything more about that due to NDA restrictions.

All other backorders are slowly but surely getting filled.

#505 2 years ago

All that said, I do happen to have 4 coffin mods currently for sale.. $175 shipped (the lowest price they've ever been). No plans to make more anytime soon after this.

Tks

I bought one of these from you on eBay on 3/30, but it doesn't look like it has shipped yet. Can you confirm?

#508 2 years ago

Just installed my BSD coffin mod tonight after it sat in my basement for 6 months. Did not go smoothly at all. Had to remove a ton of material from the underside of the mod, and it still doesn't completely sit flush. Ended up breaking the corners on the back end of the mod, but eventually got it seated after a hour of dremeling. Not exactly the mod I was hoping for. I must have gotten a dud. Still looks good, but damn it was a lot of work.

That's odd, sorry to hear that. I have a BSD here I test every mod on before shipping -- did you remove the light board?

PM me your email address and I'll send some money back for your trouble.

#511 2 years ago

When I started installing I had the same impression. Then I realized it was because of the light board. Once removed, the mod sat just right.

Yup, removed the light board and the small bracket. A friend recently installed one on his BSD as well, so I knew that it should have fit better. It was off by approximately a 1/4 of an inch.

Definitely shouldn't have left my workshop like that, I'll PM you so we can sort this out!

38 days and nothing. Let me know if I need to send more money.

It still shows as unshipped, and we're coming up on a month here. If you could get this out to me ASAP, I'd appreciate it.

are these cast and then work done afterwards to add the lights? or are they cast with the LED in place as part of the casting (with the insulated wires already in place)?

I'm casting 4 more Drac mods tomorrow if anyone wants one, painted or un-painted. Let me know.

Torch update please?

#524 2 years ago

I installed this tonight. Looks badass! An enormous improvement over Ron Jeremy.

For people who will be adding this mod, but maybe have only skimmed the thread, be sure to remove the light board and bracket underneath it. If you don't, the mod will not sit flush. I wasted an embarrassing amount of time before figuring this out (then I read more of the thread and saw others had done the same). Think Clark Griswold messing with his Christmas lights, and that was pretty much me in my game room tonight.

After installing it, somehow the language reset to French when I started it back up. I know this mod had nothing to do with that, but WTFrench? It took me 20 minutes to figure out where to find the language setup. I didn't replace the batteries that long ago, and it held English after turning it off and on a few times. Not sure what happened, but it was annoying as shit. A beer afterwards helped me restore serenity.

Has anyone installed a light strip under the coffin to give it more glow? If so, I'd love to see pics. I'm also considering putting flex LEDs in the coffin lock lights, and angling them down at the coffin. That might look cool...

I put 7 led red strip under my coffin and replaced the flashers as well. It was a pain in the ass to reroute the wiring, as it was not long enough. I mounted the original coffin board under the playfield, as one other user suggested. It looks good. I will try to get a picture tomorrow.

Does anyone have a good original lower coffin and/red lamp plastic they'd be willing to sell? My coffin melted badly due to a locked on transistor which I've since fixed and would like to make things look nice again. I'm not planning to do the coffin mod which is why I'm asking. If you have these pieces, please PM me. Thanks

orders are shipping this weekend. had a big snag last week when my son fell backward into a fire pit.. thankfully only his hands got burnt, but it's been a lot of back-and-forth to the hospital for re-dressings. pic is the morning after it happened.

I have this modeled up I just need to finish it. The base coffin that is. I need to get motivated.

Hello all, my sincerest apologies for not updtating sooner..

there have been delays in this latest batch of BSD mods. without getting into details, there have been personal setbacks at home that have slowed production. I also must admit that I took on way too many orders for this wave, and for that I apologize.

The final round of shipments are going out this week, so if you don't have yours yet then it will be in this week's batch of shipments (no later than Sunday).

As always, thank you all for your patience and understanding.

#538 2 years ago

any update on the torches for those of us that have been waiting patiently for well over a year?

Good question. I'm just a trip down the QEW and still waiting for mine!

#541 2 years ago

I paid for mine back on 7/13/17 and have yet to get it, I even started another thread about my dealings with pinball_customs and man, if I'd read this one I would have never sent my money to this "business". Unprofessional to say the least, as of this writing he has yet to refund my money as he claims he will. The guy also told me it was shipping on two separate occasions in the last three months, that's just unacceptable customer service.

We should all demand a refund at this point, businesses that have to make a habit out of lying to their customers don't deserve our support.

#543 2 years ago

Man, it must get old having to constantly lie to people! Why oh why did you claim on two different occasions that mine had gone out!? WTF, give me my money back as you claimed you would do!

robin were you aware you have a scammer taking money and not delivering products here?

#545 2 years ago

Sorry about your kid and I hope he heals up 100%! On the other hand, I am definitely not sorry that you felt compelled to lie to me about shipping my item 2x, kind of makes it hard for me to want to be patient unfortunately.

I wanted to share some insight on my process, so here's a step-by-step:

1. Mix resin with red dye, pour mold, close mold and wait 1hr (and pray).
2. Pull cast from mold and inspect.
3. Remove flashing (over-pour)
4. Sand/grind bottom to correct height
5. Scrub with hot water and soap to remove mold release -- let dry over night
6. Correct any trapped air bubbles with filler
7. Spray first coat of primer -- wait 1/2 hr.
8. Spray second coat of primer -- leave to dry overnight.
9. Cover and missed areas or cracks with black paint
10. First wash, dark wood paint applied. Let dry 1/2 hr
11. Second wash, wood highlight paint applied. Let dry 1/2 hr
12. Black "leather and straps" layer painted. This is the longest part of the paint process and takes FOREVER -- Let dry 1/2 hr
12a. Leather highlight layer applied.
13. Black layer applied to Dracula (bat form). Let dry 1/2 hr
14. First wash, dark dirt layer applied. Let dry 1/2 hr
15. Second wash, dirt highlight layer applied.
16. First layer, dark Dracula skin applied.
17. Rocks in dirt painted with black details
18. Second layer, mid-tone Dracula skin applied.
19. While Drac dries, cracked wood "Fresh wood" accents applied
20. Third layer, highlight Dracula skin applied.
21. Fourth layer, black wash -- Dracula hair and eye sockets
22. Fifth layer, Dracula's eyeballs (red)
23. Sixth layer, Black details (Drac's pupils and claws)
24. Seventh layer, Drac's teeth. Dracula complete.
25. Silver accents applied (metal rings).
26. Let entire piece dry and seal over night.
27. Inspection And touchups before clearcoat
28. First layer clearcoat applied -- wait 1 hr
29. Second layer clearcoat applied -- leave overnight
30. Final inspection before test fit
31. Test fit in test game, including replacing the glass for clearance test

Job done!
