    Due to the popular demand of the WPC silk screen set I have been making I have also been asked by many now to make a System 11 backbox warning silk screen. Using the same process as before I have scanned in the artwork and vectored the text to match as close as possible to the originals.

    Although I have shipped out some of the WPC sets I would like to offer these screens at no shipping for those who previously ordered from me. In order to get these printed I need a minimum of 10 orders. Once I get the first frame made I will post pictures of the final product.

    Payment can be sent through Paypal to [email protected]. The Sys 11 screens will be $150 + $20 shipping. Be sure to include your address, item wanted, and pinside username. I will confirm with you after your order and email you tracking information once the screens are shipped.

    Put me down for one especially with the free shipping. Need it for the cyclone I'm working on. Whats the time frame on these?

    I'll put you on the list and let everyone know when we reach 10. I anticipate it taking a bit longer to reach 10 since less people are restoring System 11 games. If we don't reach 10 in two weeks or so I'll see about getting a lower number printed.

    Pretty cool tool and nice demo but its upside down.

    Great video! I've got 4 System 11's that are going to be restored at some point (probably when I retire in 20 years). Is it possible to get in on both System 11 and WPC screens at this point?

    Chris, you're in luck. Since the screens are still being printed I'm able to add to the order. I'll PM you for details.

    So do I have to sand down my new WPC silk screen so you can now make a video of the System 11 screen that my Funhouse originally had on it.... Your going to owe me some orbital sanding pads by the time I'm all done with this Funhouse. Or you could just put my Funhouse back together again for me.

    By the way, I have the Funhouse WPC silkscreen back at my house and it looks really nice. I'm now stripping down the rest of the cabinet and getting it ready for decals to match the nice silkscreen.

    If you want to be a purist you would correct it, that's all I'm going to say. Maybe on round two you won't get any rain on it so Bryan doesn't need to call you out.
    BTW, if you need any assistance with decals let me know. Once July starts I'll be out on summer break.

    Any more takers, I'm still a few short of the 10 I need to get them made.

    I went ahead an made 10 screens up so I could show a picture of how they look. I already had a few takers and will be getting their's out shortly. I also have a few extra sets of the WPC screens available for anyone interested as well.

    The text is placed off center on purpose so a cleat can be screwed to the other end to grip the cabinet head while screening.

    I really hope that no one is offended by this, but I have to ask. Is this something that is really necessary to put on a machine?

    Quoted from mcclad:

    To play a game, no. To restore a game, YES!

    OP, Nice work!

    Ok. That makes sense. I did not know if the warnings had to be on a machine or not.

    I noticed my system 11's use an orange color on the warning screening, anyone know what color that is or does everyone just go with the 59LF134 Medium Yellow?

    #19 8 years ago

    PM sent for sys 11 screen. If still available, I'll forward the funds.

    Josh, I'm not aware of an orange ink being used. I went and checked mine and it's just as yellow as my other WPC games. If anyone else knows anything about this I'd really be interested to know too.

    I'm sure by now you have seen an orange warning print, if not, this is the back of my F-14 Tomcat. And I am sending you an email to purchase one of the system 11 silk screen prints. Thank you, Jon

    My first time ever doing a silk screen print. I just watched the video and then used the contact info at the end of the video to order the screen and squeegee from merfeldma, and ordered ink from Dick Blick Art Materials (www.dickblick.com).
    Thanks merfeldma and bryan_kelly
