I had a problem with the ball hitting the canon in the shooter lane so I decided to modify things a bit. Here is the end result with the addition of a led strip that lights up when the auto shoot fires. I have an additional RGB strip that I haven't connected yet.

Since I had some polycarbonate and the Dremel saw out I added a couple of figurines in front of the ship.

Quoted from scottslash:

lb1 -- Those are some very nice mods indeed.

Thanks Scottlash. I actually have something weird going on with the red flasher in the canon. Somehow it also flashes when the flipper are activated. I hooked up the +24V to the right slingshot's 20V and the ground to the autokick ground. Not sure what's going on.

Quoted from Fliptastic:

Putting my Potc back together. Could someone please tell me if the light wires to the Kraken plastic go beneath the play field behind the ship or in the small hole to the left where the opto wires feed through?

Do you guys have any strategies recommendations to defeat Davy Jones? I've had the game for a while now and I have yet to do it.

Quoted from maffewl:

My guess is that Heart Multiball is much more difficult to reach and the K-E-Y resets on drains. I'd also venture to say (assuming others machines play similar to mine) that the ball being released from the chest is more drain prone slash difficult to gain control of.

Also, you can use Tortuga to hold balls while shooting Davy Jones. I found it hard to not only hit but also time the shot with multiple balls roaming around the playfield.

A few more custom mods. Kraken inspired by PiperBoy.

Quoted from PeterG:

I like your Kraken, where did you get that? I could not find Piperboy on the forum?

May have changed his name. See this - https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/for-sale-pirates-of-the-caribbean-with-custom-mods.

The Kraken mod starts with this.

I painted mine camo green (with primer before and clear gloss after) and built a custom frame to hold the tentacles.
