Here is the lighted cast button
http://www.dziedzic.us/cast_button.html

Here is what the original lighted cast button looks like, the new button has the same part # but is bigger and doesn't fit in the handle.
You can also fit the old style Stern tournament button in there with slight modification.

Quoted from TZBen:

How much is a chrome'd gun anyway?

You would have to check with Mike, hpu at comcast daht net for current pricing.
I had 2 FT, 1 STTNG and a DH gun done in a package deal.
He may have them in stock and do an exchange for yours.

Quoted from yzfguy:

Can someone make up some plug and play light up buttons for dummies like me? I would love to have one, but skeered of screwing something up!

The power for the bulb is right there in the harness and the washer needs to be modded into a square in the center to hold the button.
If you order the button switch when it comes it won't fit in the handle.
Gregg B. found these buttons at HAPP and the girl there checked the bin and the part #s were the same but the newer buttons were bigger.
She found 2 of the original style and he bought both, it was a real pickle dance to get the buttons, that is the problem.
The Stern tourney button doesn't need the washer or nut, you just dremel the bezel to fit the slot in the handle halves.
This looks really good as an alternative, the yellow goes good with the game and so does the tournament start.

It is controlled, follow the loom back from your handle and you will see the connector.

Quoted from Billmelater:

The best mod for FT is the one that allows you to turn off the flopping fish topper! I have a few in stock but will be making another batch due to high demand. PM me for a special Pinside member discount if interested.

Pull the armature and roll a star post rubber down to the base and reinstall to quiet down the fish, use two if it is still too loud.

I can sell you the kit with detailed instructions for only $19.95 but wait, there's more.
Act now and get two kits just add additional shipping and handling.

Quoted from decktard:

In addition... I put some vibration dampening tape on the back of the fish's tale 'cuz I noticed that was slapping the background every once in a while. Basically anything that made contact with something else up there I worked on.
That rubber ring on the armature is a good idea too... I might have to do that next time I open the topper up.

The rubber ring(s) stops it from slapping the backboard, if you would have done this first you wouldn't have needed all that tape.
