Took another crack at getting the ball trails out of the long ramp (especially the last part) and I was more successful. Followed Black Rose's advice in his videos. Tried Novus 2 again and took out a little more and then flame polished again.

Before.

Did I overdo it with the bright pink LEDs behind the boobs? Some women that play my machine seem to think so. Personally, I think they could be brighter and pinker and maybe even bigger....

Brad,was wondering if you removed those decals before flame polishing each time? Like the color scheme on the back box you chose. If you can remember what you used please share!

No I left the decals on, I just didn't polish the areas on the same side as the decals. It wasn't too bad to do. I had never done it before and I watched a few videos and went ahead and did it. If you take your time and don't get it too hot, you should be ok.

I will try to post a picture of where my LED's are in the backbox.

Here's where the LEDs are behind my back glass. The whites are cool whites and the one behind Elvira's head is an Ultra brite (Looks better in person). The ones that look yellow and not circled are standard incandescents. It looked too washed out with LEDs in the busy areas. It's funny how totally different LEDs photograph.

Awesome,
I will probably borrow from this a bit as I too want to keep the general lighting original and just add a little pop to it.

#112 5 years ago

Awesome Job everyone. My Eaptm is one of my few feepers in my game room. I'm always trying to find new way to improve/mod it. This thread is pure inspiration!

Cool.... I'll take some tips on that translite ilumination as well! Have you ever been to the EatPM club here on Pinside?

I replaced the skull on my EATPM today with a Glow in the Dark one...

New and Original,, Note: the new does not have the tab that attaches to the ramp.

Lights on, Blacklights off.
