Quoted from branlon8:
I like that mod, too, but I decided against it because it blocks the view of the ball when it‘s making it‘s 180° turn. I would like something similiar, but more in 2D which only covers that blank spot on the backboard. I‘d try to make something myself, but I‘m not completely sure how to wire LEDs together and hook it up and be sure I won‘t damage the game.
It doesn't block view of the ball though...I have it on mine and really like it. Its a lot of transparent film (windows) that lets you see through it...plus when combined with the light from the mod that illuminates that whole area, and the shininess of the ball lets you see the ball going around the ramp.
Here is an attempted pic for you ->
I really like the mod...especially on a standard since it illuminates that whole corner. Also...I think it adds immersion by making it look more like a city scape, plus visually I think that area needs something "vertical" to help balance out the heights of betty, station 3, phone, theater, etc.
The one thing I didn't like with the mod...is the gray mounting tabs. If they could have been clear, ...that would have been best.
One tab is mostly hidden by the high voltage signs, but the one on the left is always visible ->
When I was taking the pictures...I decided to go ahead and do something about it. I added some electric tape around the tabs like this ->
What an improvement for a 10 second fix!
Oh....and...when I was back there I noticed that there is a notch in the back panel...which looks like the ramp plastic should "rest" in that notch. But mine doesn't....my ramp plastic lip is just below it, but its not tight to the back panel...still has a tiny bit of play. But no vertical play since the metal mounts for the ramp lock it in place.
Does anybody else's DI have the ramp lip resting in this groove?
