Quoted from wxforecaster:
Just joined the club. Idiot me didn't realize that Spidey was old enough to have incandescent bulbs. Did later runs have LEDs?
Anyways, I want to LED this thing. Already had one PS'er send me a nice PM but looking for other ideas and answers.
How did you all handle the following:
1.) Inserts. Non-ghosting LEDs required? What colors did you go with (some are obvious like red and green inserts), but natural white in the white inserts? What about Battle Royale? Purple passions? In the inserts...1 SMD? 2 SMD? etc...
2.) Above playfield lighting. There are several areas where Stern used colored 555s (green goblin, the venom and sandman mode lights on the back box, etc....). What did folks use here? Frosted? I kind of like the exposed colored incandescent look, but that's hard to achieve with LEDs (particularly yellows that are really weak).
3.) Any color changing around the GI?
Documented examples would be great even though they photograph poorly.
I used green and red purple and blue frosted under those color inserts and sunlight white frosted from comet pinball under the rest.
Also used Comet Sunlight frosted for my GI.
I do have green flashers under the Goblin area and blue flasher behind Venom.
No color changers.
