Quoted from enkiktd:

Mr_tantrum, those worked great, thanks!
GrimDog - I've been looking for a plastic set for a while and haven't been able to find one. Pretty much everyone is sold out at this point.

You're welcome. Fortunate timing for you that I recently rebuilt mine.

#6652 1 year ago

Does anyone have a translite for sale?

#6653 1 year ago
Quoted from GrimDog:

I'm cataloging things I need to buy in this rebuild. Does anyone know where to get a plastics kit? The sites I checked are all sold out. Do they even repo them anymore?

Are yours broken/missing or just warped/scratched/discolored?

I've replaced select ones on mine that were scratched, but polished and did a heat and flattening treatment on everything else. They came out of the process looking much better (very shiny and flat), even with their slight aged yellowing.

PM MJW as he had a couple available 3 weeks or so ago.

#6655 1 year ago
Quoted from GrimDog:

out of stock there too

About the only thing to do now is contact CPR and ask them if they have another run planned....everybody who needs a set should do that. If they know there's a demand they just might run it. For all they know there's no demand.

#6656 1 year ago

They have done two runs i think already. Highly doubtful they will do another but you never know !
Put an ad on pinside looking for a set. Lots of guys purchased a set in case they might end up with a Getaway but never did. Cant hurt.

If only they could do a set that has orange instead of that light pinkish color.

#6660 1 year ago

I looked my plastics over today. Looks like none are trashed but these need some work.

I was looking at an LED list a couple of people compiled for Getaway and they all list three red 89's. I can see where whites would go; Where would these reds go?

Did you happen to look at my list? Not sure what I show, but can look later. http://www.thezumwaltfamily.com/getawaypinball

#6663 1 year ago

Had fun modding a mod! Reverse printed those little guys on clear laminate, then sticked them to the back of the donut shop windows. I used Mr Tantrum graphics and modified them a bit.

Okay, I looked through my original list and I did not use any #89 Reds. However, I've since made several changes to my LED scheme, and I now have #89 reds in my left and right sling flashers, and I think I also put one in my left ramp flasher (underneath entrance to the SC).

That looks great.

#6668 1 year ago

How do y'all think I can fix this problem? At any point in the game, the ball kicks out into the shooter lane, hits off the right lane wall, and falls partially back into the knockout trough, stopping play unless I nudge it or let it do a ball search and kick it out again. Happening more frequently now. Wondering what to do. Thanks, speeders!

Yeah mine does that too sometimes. I was going to try a piece of adhesive backed felt, the type that is used to line either side of the play field to prevent scratching mirror blades. I haven't been playing my machine lately so didn't get around to it. This may absorb the impact and hence the bounce back, it's a thought anyway

Mine never ever does this. Do you have a lot of wear at the eject hole area or something? Maybe a cliffy would help. Mines just starting to wear there so i ordered a cliffy the other day.

#6671 1 year ago

Yea I got enough wear that a Cliffy would probably solve the problem, but I'd like to keep the original look there and not use one. Was thinks by maybe I need to replace the spring, if there is one, that pushes the ball to the eject site.

Put a piece of making tape over the wear just for a couple tests to see if it has any effect.

#6673 1 year ago

Charger... Bend this guide slightly toward the balls until the problem stops. The wear has absolutely nothing to do with it.

#6674 1 year ago

theonlyest once again came through with the answer. My guide was bent all the way to the right. Bent it in some and now the ball hits it and drops down to the plunger. Thanks again, Steve!

Darn, I was kind of excited about the path the redneck tape solution was taking down

#6677 1 year ago

Nice "point" you made there.

#6678 1 year ago

Since i'm in such a chatty mood, I decided to share how I made my speaker panel gauges light up without spending $225. I did this for free and about 4 hours of work... But I have a ton of spare parts, but if you had to buy the stuff to do it, it would cost under $20.

Looks great, how did you do it?

Piece a cake... (Yes, I know the DMD is upside-down in the pic, I realized it before I put it back in the game.)

Looks really good. The gauges really pop. I also seen a guy light the kingpin plate on the translite which I liked.

#6683 1 year ago

That looks really sharp. The only extra thing I've done on the backbox is change out the standard bulbs for slow blinkers behind the helicopters, to make it look like their navigation lights.

Awesome! This has been on my DIY to do list. I put a little thought into it, but that is all. Thanks for the posts!

Yeah, I remember seeing that too sometime back. I wonder who it could have been that did that?

Where did you tap in to get power for the new gauge lighting?

Should have known that was you....

Actually, I think I may have "borrowed" the idea, but I did put my own twist on it.

GI in the insert panel.

It was heading towards proving (or not) the need for a cliffy. But i misunderstood what was really happening. Not an issue i had encountered on this game.

Nice work there, makes the gauges really pop. Love this kind of thinking!

#6692 1 year ago

Hey guys. Anyone ever replaced the plastic inserts for this game? I would like to swap mine out to all clear ones. Except the stop light target inserts. Those will still be red, green, yellow. Looking for feedback. Has this been done yet? Would this alter the look of the game too much? Do's and Don'ts please. I will be doing an automotive clear coat over the PF when done too. Thanks.

#6693 1 year ago

Stuck in 2nd gear? Can't drive 55? If your answer to either of these question is a definitive "yes", then by all means Getaway to my newly available PinSound mix! I made a few corrections/mods to the orchestration, and it just became available for download.

Have you checked out Vids pf restoration guide?

I know how to do the job. Done it before. Just not with this game yet. Was asking for aesthetics and possible difficulty with the design of the game.

Shouldn't be too difficult to mockup on the computer. Is plan to go color LEDs or all white? Personally, would consider keeping tach with color inserts (clear and red), but think others would look good clear with color LEDs.

Yes, colored LED's indeed. With all clear it gives me more variety to play with. I'm keeping the stop light target inserts green, yellow, and red. But thinking of every other insert being clear with whatever LED color I want under it.

I'm thinking that with the game turned off it would probably look weird, but with all the lights going while being played - it would look great. Either way I'm removing the inserts due to the decals and inserts being damaged. Just debating on the color of the inserts themselves.

#6698 1 year ago

Just make sure its what you want as there is no going back. Also might hurt resale value if you ever decide to sell it .

Almost done with the rebuild but now I have two stray female connectors that I don't know where they go to. Both are located near the flipper buttons and are the same colors as the wires that attach to the flipper assemblies. Any insight?
