and a Black Friday Bump!

If anyone is interested.. have 5 full sets left on these. 8 Speaker panels. Thats going to be it for awhile on this batch. I have other projects in progress that I need to focus my time and materials to.

By now ..most of you should have your orders. As of right now. I think everyone is pretty happy.

Happy Flipping!

Got these from Joe yesterday...thanks Joe!

Really impressed with the quality - I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get them on right without screwing them up, since the playfield is in the way no matter what you do. However, due to the thickness/durability of the material combined with the fact that the back is more tacky than sticky - it was really easy to try, peel off, try again until I got a good technique to get it on perfectly. I wasn't sure I'd like the speaker panel decal - but my girlfriend thought it was awesome so I put it on

Looks HOT!

I see you are sporting WOLOWIZARDS "For those about to Rock" sticker as well.

#108 5 years ago

That's true - I also installed the figurines to the playfield. I seem to be copycatting quite a lot, but I just really like how you guys are pimping out the AC/DC

Ok so..I been getting a few questions on installation tips
So I have this little write up..I plan on making a demo video shortly but her this is for now,
This is how I do it.
SAFTEY FIRST: TAKE YOUR PLUG OUT
1) remove your lock down bar
2) slide glass off carefully
3) remove all balls from the game
4) pull playfield straight up so that front of your play field touches the back glass
5) take felt strips and peel off the backing , now place the sticker part against the side of the play field. Repeat the same on the other side so that both felt strips are now sticking to both sides of the play field. This is the wood area that is exposed when you are looking at the machine from the side. This will help in preventing any damage when you lift and lower your play field up and down. The PinBLades have a protective coating but its never a bad idea to have extra protection.
6) With your play field full upright, push it towards one side as much as possible. There should be an 1/8 the of an inch on each side between the playfield and the cabinet,
7)pull backing off the corner of one PinbLade off starting from the rear. Line up the rear notch with the screw (STERN) and where the head meets the cab. (notched area) Now tack it against the cabinet wall at the same time line up the front of the pin blade to the front of the cabinet, IT should be nice and smooth. You may have to do this a few times but just do it carefully. You can peel the panels off easily so don't worry about messing up . You can do this time and time again until you are happy with positioning. It would probably be a good idea to get a friend to help you.
8)Repeat step for opposite side. You can take a squeegee or credit card to smooth them out.
Make sure they are flush. No bubbles high spots

Now lower your play field carefully..making note not to touch the sides as you are lowering. (it's ok if you do because you have the felt and the PinBlades have protective coating but its just good practice)
Put the balls back in the game.
Slide glass back in place
Lock down the lock down bar.

That's it.

should take you about 10 minutes tops!

Great job! Thank you for posting these up for the folks here. I like your soft squeegee.

#125 5 years ago

Thank you

But i must say, that i have taken another way as you described here http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/fs-acdc-interior-pinbladesspeaker-panel-kit-hot/page/3#postbox

First , i have pulled out the playfield without rising it up.
Then i´ve put the pinblade between the sideboard and the playfield and removed about 1/3 of the protection foil.
Now i have alignded the pinblade, beginning from the rear screw.

If that was done, i have raised the playfield and pushed it back as far as possible ( so it would not smashed down )

now i removed the rest of the protection layer and completed this. ( Better use a felt squeegee !)

NOW i apllied the felt strips ( otherwise, the space between playfield and sideboard would be too narrow.. )

Here i asked may wife to give me a hand ..
But its also very easy.
Just lift up the end of the playfield as shown in the pictures.
