ANNOUNCEMENT:

On the heels of the Pin*Bot translite conversion from last month, our next instalment of this mission is the DINER backglass.

Consider it a mod, or consider it a complete replacement - it's Diner's translite turned into a "real" backglass (tempered glass panel, reverse-silkscreened in true layered inks, and original light masks are in place). Stu's mirror creations have been incorporated, adding tasteful and cool accents to the classic watercolor painting layout of the translite artwork.

Color densities of the genuine layered inks give a nice contrast and extended dynamic range to the colors (blacker blacks, whiter whites) and our new inks (chemically made for glass production) are proving to really hold up to being brightly backlit with virtually NO 'washout' to the colors.

Available and shipping now. Found in the Backglass section of our website Store.

I could have sworn the Diner I used to own had a real backglass.
Oh well.

Any chance you will do this for whirlwind?

They did do it for whirlwind, and it honestly didn't look so great. I stuck with my translite.

Would anyone have a good translite they'd be willing to sell once they get the backglass - mine's very ordinary

#10 3 years ago

Just ordered mine....

Thanks CPR for doing this.

Has anyone received one of these yet? What's your review of it?

I'm interested in getting one, but would like some other's feedback.

I received mine yesterday. It's beautiful!

Stu did a fantastic job...as usual.

This is my 1st backglass purchase from CPR. I was a bit surprised it's 1/8 inch thick. I was expecting thicker.

Could you post a side by side comparison of the backglass to your original translight? I'm interested in getting one but want to make sure that I'd like it first.

I wish I could. My Diner is buried behind about 20 pins.

Sorry

#15 3 years ago

Hopefully someone will. I'm keen to see the comparison myself.

If my Diner back glass arrives today as scheduled, I'll be sure to post a comparison!

Thank you. Looking forward to that.

Alas, due to the much needed rain we have recently had this week here in the Bay Area, UPS shipping got delayed. The new Diner back glass is scheduled to arrive sometime on Monday. I'll post pics after installing!!

Finally got the Diner back glass delivered late this afternoon. Took comparison pics from the translite to the CPR back glass. Everything looks dead on with little color difference. On my old translite I had a crack running threw the moon, this was one of the reasons I made the purchase. All and all very happy!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Sorry, top 2 photos new back glass, bottom 3 old translite. Very little difference in my opinion, except for some mirrored borders and no more cracked moon!!

Thanks very much for taking the time to do this.
