I'm in the club as of last night. Traded for a Pirates for my BK2K which, quite frankly, got boring quickly. My Pirates has seen some use so I think it's going to need a stripdown to clean it up.

Right now I'm hurriedly identifying problems to get in on some Black Friday deals. The ship looks intact and the plastics are dirty but in good shape. No error codes so far but there are definitely some plastic posts and targets that need replacing.

Big question is whats the consensus rubber color? And titans or superbands preferred on this pin?

I like Titan Glow in the Dark

I saw that in the Titan kits section. Did you do that for the small post rubbers too or just the big rings? I have to get under the ramps to do some major cleaning so I figured I'd change out all the post rubbers while I was at it.

Also, what color are the L side lights supposed to be above the spinning disc? It looks like someone did a partial LED changeout on my POTC. They didn't change those bulbs however so now half of them are clear and half are clear red. The manual says all red

Finally did the pin normally come with a spotlight on the chest and if yes what color is it? In some manual pics there is a spotlight but in others there is not. My pin has a spotlight pointing towards it from the R orbit but it too was missing a bulb.

Now that I have the flipper working I've got some more time on it and can tell it's going to be a fun pin to play for awhile, much different than my other high paced flow pins.

I put Glow rubbers on my entire play field. The flipper rubbers snapped and I replaced them with yellow, because that’s what I had. I would also add 2 rubbers middle of the pop bumpers. That one is a pain to replace and likes to break. Additionally, I put frosted reds above the spinner and I believe the standard dome light was clear incandescent. If buying LEDs, get comet non-ghosting.

Nice game! Is there ever a time where game lights dim and rubbers glow? Just curious if you ever see the glow effect during gameplay.
