They look better that way. I tried them both ways in mine.
Thanks for the kind words. I used Cointakers frosted except for the tie-fighter, Pinball Life red. The Cointakers were too bright there.
Warm white frosted might be more to your liking. Should be no noticeable bleed to the cool whites.
I had the same problem after I removed my apron for some playfield cleaning. What I discovered after reflowing solder, adjusting switches etc., there is a wire gate inside (attached too) the plastic apron that was hanging up. I bent the leg that makes it one-way, a bit so it did not rub on the plastic anymore. That fixed it for me.
Pinball life has "sega/stern" black legs for $47 a set. I have a sega Godzilla and the legs look the same but they could have been replaced before I got it. They look right but maybe call them and ask.
Quoted from beepbeep:
Repair question...I have a couple pop bumpers that are not working correctly when the ball hits them nothing happens....any adjustments that can me made or do I need to rebuild them or just fix a couple parts? Also it seems the force chute doesn't eject the ball when it should in some cases, then the machine goes into ball find mode can any one tell me what needs to fix here?
The force chute problem sounds like the switch (not the coil) that recognizes the ball has a broken wire or diode on it OR the switch needs adjusting. Make sure the wiring is secure and that the diode is still attached. I have had this issue before (on other games). Hope that helps.
Hope these help. Looks like you have it right. I just confirmed that R2's arm does hit the clear plastic but it (the plastic) floats in the back so it has enough play in it.
There is a good thread on here on removing Mylar, I think it's titled "removing Mylar mastered". Few different methods, freeze method which is canned air (dust blaster) turned upside down, heat method which is a heat gun (or hair dryer) just be real careful to not melt your plastics (done that...). Read up on it before you start so you don't damage your playfield, lift off insert art, or damage plastics.
For coil sleeves, if you have the manual, the part numbers for each coil sleeve should be listed and you can search for them on Marco or Pinball life. PDF of manual should be on IPDB.
Double check your connections, sounds like you may have connectors on the wrong headers or off by a pin or maybe upside down? Not all of them are keyed if I remember correctly.
