Quoted from jawjaw:
Yeah, awesome shots. Did you go with a led kit or buy individually? What kind of comet leds did you use? I'm interested in using leds in mine but with all the different choices, I have no idea what to use.
No kit. Get the old note pad out and count your bulbs. How many GI Warm Whites? How many insert non-ghosting greens? How many 44's or 555's? Etc.
For the lower GI around the slings and anywhere there wasn't green trees I used warm white supreme brightness SMD's. Anywhere I was lighting green tree plastics I used the same bulb but in green. Even in the mid and upper playfield area if the plastic being illuminated wasn't green I used the warm white. For example, areas that are mountains or speed limit signs. Some guys like frosted but I just used the clear domes.
For inserts, I just color matched. Green inserts got green supreme brightness SMD's. The difference was that I chose the non-ghosting because the possible issues you can have with WPC games. For the white RPM inserts and any other white jewel insert I used cool white.
The back box is an assortment of reds, blues and cool whites.
The Supercharger Sign got a frosted Supreme Brightness SMD non-ghosting yellow and red.
I used three red ones of these in the pops.
Although, these would be cool too, if not a little pricey.
There's all sorts of choices for flashers but I used the natural white 8 SMD's for the playfield.
And the 13 SMD's for the backbox, "free ride" insert and the supercharger.
Note that I had no issues with any of the Comet LED's I bought. If it wasn't working right it was usually an issue with the holder's connectors needing tightening or, in one instance, an issue with the board's header pins needing resoldered. Comet LED's are good stuff. While I love Cointaker, if I'm not at a show (where the deals are really good) their online prices are a little too much.
One final piece of advice. F*ck those cheap single LED's that sell for around 38 cents. They're so dim I might as well use a 44 incandescent.
Hope this helps some.
