Thank you kindly!

Well, finally unpacked mine. Interestingly, my samples seemed to straddle the divide between two different types of product literature.

Going to slowly start with the drop targets tomorrow (as they are cracked and need replacing anyway), cheers!

Hmm...am I correct in concluding that I should not have applied star Bright 9 to the two standup targets under the Demogorgon? ("M" and "O") because of the angle?

I didn't add any there, and believe that was the conclusion.

Thanks Medisinyl! All set. I actually ran out of the adhesive sheets, and not the star Bright. In my first pack of sheets, there were a bunch of air bubbles on arrival, and I totally screwed up on an entire sheet. but the second pack was smooth as butter. Still have a panel and a half of the star Bright left. Thanks again! World of difference...

Has anyone contemplated selling this as a ready mod sized correctly and ready to apply? I had hoped that would have happened by now but am still holding out hope. Hell, if someone has extra and is willing to do it, I would pay a bit extra

Pinball Life is supposed to be creating a Darkstar kit. they already have a kit for the white material. the issue is the Darkstar stuff is really expensive and it's hard to get in large sheets. But Terry is working on it, at least last i heard.

I've got two extra unused sheets of Darkstar samples, asking $15 shipped, if anyone's interested. (Otherwise, they're just sitting here.)

Claimed, cheers!

I am conflicted... I realy want to do this ... I have all of the materials... but I also know that I struggle to put down Mylar without bubbles.

ugh...

How many samples would I have to order ..

It’s not bad. Just cut the pieces precisely and take your time. I never had any bubbling issue. This material is thick enough so it doesn’t bubble. My biggest piece of advise. Go slow and be precise. Good luck!!!

For all the european players here like me who don't have access to darkstar 9 :
I used some grey ALR fabric from these guys : https://leinwandbau.info/en/projection-screen-fabric/high-contrast-screen-material-ambient-light-rejecting-alr-projector-screen-material/51/high-contrast-screen-material-ambient-light-rejecting-alr-projector-screen-material-1-1?number=LWB10051&c=21

You can order a roll of 80*80, should be more than enough to cover everything and you can do the ramps in one piece too.

Here are some photos with some fabric badly glued to a piece of cardboard for testing purposes :

Many thanks for the link !

It will definitely be useful.

On a sidenote, if you do the exercize, I would welcome a scan of the ramp outline. I have a small laser cnc which should allow me to laser cut the material cleanly.

I'm not sure how I will handle the ramps yet, just finished the main center area today, but I will definitely post here if I can make a clean pattern for the ramps
