Ok to start off the first 4 posts are reserved for the final product to save you sifting through a truck load of posts to find the info you need.
The following posts are about the development of the this mod as I like to include the prospective buyers to a point through some design changes and make this mod cool. In the Snackbar Mod V1.0 I made 6 protos and 99 production units which will be floating around the whole world in peoples games. Many people know me for my engineering approach with the focus to make and supply a quality, reliable and long lasting mod.
So the mod will still remain very similar looking - actually 95% the same and very conscious of keeping the cool iconic era look. The 5% change is I plan on removing the el-wire from the design for 3 reasons - cost, supply and 12 vdc power drain on a heavily modded CFTBL game. I am proposing to switch to "end lit" perspex panels housed in the side of the snackbar mod. In addition I will supply 2 lights - one for under the dome (which people had to buy their own in the past) and the other for inside the snackbar top to end light both perpex panels. The beauty of this proposed change is that you will have 1-6 or more colour choices (white, blue, red, green, yellow) to light up your perpex adding your personal touch to the mod. In addition the goal is to not draw on the 12vdc in the backbox and therefore reduce that modding stress of power issues. Though v1.0 did not draw alot but in a couple of circumstances was the straw that broke the camels back causing a minor headache for a short period.
The stainless steel plate will not change nor will the post locations as am conscious of some guys possibly wanting to upgrade their v1.0 tops to v2.0 tops.
The decals won't change as I am quite happy with them but open to some minor suggestions.
The mounting system will change a little as my goal is for a one screw only fastening system so it will be even easier to install with no requirement for ramps to come off. The goal will be only one screw visible on the top top 5 - see how I go here.
It will still have a red dome, with the aqua blue for the main body as it ties in with the decal and fits in with the playfield art.
This time around with payment, I will request in Aus Dollars as last time I requested in USD as now most parts are Aus made / supply.
The Cost - is $227 (excluding paypal fees) Australian Dollars and will come with all parts including all light components + Postage via Paypal. This is only a few dollars different to the v1.0 run if you switch to USD on today's exchange rates.
Postage - will be finalised at time of sending though roughly $21.50 to US/Canada & $25.50 to Europe and will be registered and will be charged at cost only. And those in Aus - worst case registered is $15 but could be a little cheaper - depends on location.
For the guys who supported the Snackbar v1.0, you will be honored with a 5% on the full mod or tops only. But remember for the v1.0 guys wanting just the tops only, if you want the base down the track I will honour the 5% discount and it will be $28 with another $20-$25 shipping so please consider your options as you may choose to get a full kit and then be able to sell the kit that you don't want down the track.
I will be offering a 5% discount to anyone buying a poster mod only after they have already paid for a snackbar mod V1.0 / 2.0.
Below are the cost options (hope it isn't confusing) but hope it helps.
I will start a market place thread once the protos are made to stick with Pinside rules and I will make a donation to Pinside as well.
Pricing Note: I am hoping that the price doesn't change after the proto evaluation batch, and if I can identify any savings the pricing will be updated and the proto support guys will get a small refund.
Top = snackbar top only (v1 owners would already have a plate).
Full = complete snackbar kit including base plate
