Quoted from mark9:

Did you dispatch mine?
No answer to my pm...it's been 6 weeks since I paid.

Similar question ... 60 days since I paid. Also sent pm with no answer.

Is mine in this bunch too?

Mine showed up last week, thanks for shipping. I didn't know you were busy with a new baby, that explains the slight delay.

Mod looks cool, haven't had the time to install it as yet but I'll get on to that as my next project.

Wow! My first pinball add on mod! I feel like a child again.

I got my coffin mod sometime ago ... maybe a couple of years ago. Time flies ...

I had to come back to this thread to remember how it was supposed to look when it was installed. It fits over the top of the original coffin (sans Ron jeremy) but I didn’t like the look of that. So I did mine a little different.

First I removed everything. Took out the stainless base, and mucked around with how I wanted it to look, and most importantly, making sure it works 100%.

I removed the long hex posts from the base, and using the holes of two of them installed 2x 44 lamp holders. I bent the brackets around so the lamp faces upwards. Then I masked off the lamps and the centre bit, and gave it three coats of satin black spray paint around the edges. You can see the edge of the base with the coffin mounted, and I preferred it to be black rather than stainless.

Next, I figured out how the Factory light board works. The yellow wire is the common, the 3x other wires drive the 555 bulbs. To be honest, I never really noticed Ron Jeremy glowing much, but ... that’s what it does.

So I removed those wires and soldered them to my new lamp holders, leaving one coloured wire spare which was taped up. The yellow wire loops between both lamps. You must put a diode in line on the coloured wires, same as the board has. Otherwise the other lamps in the matrix will stay lit.
Always use heatshrink on shit like this.

Then I trial fitted it to see what happened. Sure enough, the lights turn on and off as per plan. Note the 1x screw and 1x hex that now mount the steel base to the posts.

The flashers were changed to LEDs too. They really light up the coffin, and the red glow shoots out the exit as well. Nooooicceeee!

The coffin needs a little modification now it is sitting flat on the steel. I dremelled out the exit a little to make it higher for the ball to get out, and also a little notch at the back to go over the hex screw.

And here she is all fitted. It’s just sitting there at present, but I’ll probably fix it down with double sided tape.

Looks pretty sweet. IMO.

Likes up like a MoFo too! Without burning out your retinas.

Just thought I’d share that, could be helpful to someone!
