Quoted from golfergordy:

On the other hand, there are guys like me who emphasize the air scoop by placing a cool white bulb behind it, giving it a blue tint to make it more noticeable. It's sometimes an item of conversation for non-Lambo aficionados who ask what the blue thing is. I bet Mr_Tantrum & TheOnlyest wouldn't like Steve Ritchie's signature on the Lambo's hood either.
[quoted image]

You are right. I would not be happy with anyone who defaced the hood of my supercar, even if it was Ferruccio himself.

Glad for you, however. I'm all for making games the way you like them and adding whatever flare you like, as long as you ask yourself if the bare minimum is enough. You do want to express yourself, don't you?

You lost that bet, Steve's autograph is cool!! A feature element added to the game that is blasphemous to an iconic supercar is something else!!
How cool would have been for the air scoop on the PF, to instead have the nose of a diablo sticking out, with flashers in the headlights!?

Probably could be done with a 1/10th RC lexan body although the width might not be quite right.

If there was a Lambo with Ferruccio's signature on it, collectors would fight each other over it. I met Steve Ritchie at last year's pb Expo, and showed him the signature, and he verified that it was his, which makes my Getaway game very special to me, and it's even more special now that a few of your mods are on it too. One of my wife's friends, who loves playing The Getaway game, was over again last week to play it, and immediate recognized that your Donut Heaven mod had been installed - she studied it in detail and was very impressed with how cool it is. She never, however, mentioned a word about Ritchie's signature or the air scoop.

Getaway is great in a lot of different ways. I'm probably partial because it was my first pin, but everyone seems to put their own twist on it and there is so much that can be done with such a great theme, IMO.

#12359 1 year ago
Quoted from BoilerUp:

Welcome to the club! Newbie here too.
There is so much good info here. Also go to the Getaway game page here on Pinside and scroll way down to the videos. There is a supercharger repair video by the Pinball Evangelist that is extremely informative and a great way to learn about the mechanics of the supercharger. I found it to be a great jumping off point.

Finally received my game and I was able to fix the super charger the same day. I got the ball spinning to 92 on the SC speed test. The middle opto was out, the track needed cleaning, a touch of 3in1 and added new balls

#12360 1 year ago

Tantrum, you make this machine even more enjoyable. Thank you and your prices are on point.

For sure, but it’ll be awhile. I have to install new cabinet art first and deal with the back box and coin door lights not working. I think it’s the U1 chip

How do you keep from scarring up the side wall art blades? I installed art blades in my GZ game and have raised & lowered the pf several times w/o any problem, but The Getaway has only about 1/2 the clearance (as GZ) between the side edge of the pf and the side cabinet walls. My side cab. walls already have many scars from previous owners - a project on my to do list is to refinish the side walls, but I'm afraid to install art blades.

I don't. As many times as I've had the playfield up and down I've scratched them to pieces, although I did apply adhesive felt to the edges of the playfield to minimize this. Lucky for me they were homemade and didn't cost very much. Once I undertake and finish my playfield swap, I plan on installing new ones.

Nice! It’s so satisfying watching the ball fly around the track and the repair is almost as much fun as the pin. Enjoy the game!

I second the pinball life art blade protectors that ktcoady12 posted above. Mine have been great.

Now I just need to find some apron cards and a deal on a color dmd… the project continues…

Quick question: When you have long ball time (around 1 minute in), is the ZZ Top background music supposed to stop? I’m wondering if I have a sound problem.

No, it will repeat, and if all recall all my my tracks are closer to 2 or 3 minutes.

I mean the standard music the machine comes with, not Pinsound. I’m assuming it’s supposed to loop too.

I believe it should. I don't recall the music ever running out.

#12375 1 year ago

Are you supposed to install the side wall blade protectors after the glass is removed but prior to raising the pf? And then remove the protectors just prior to reinserting the glass?, so that the protector is in place every time the pf is raised or lowered?

No harm in asking.

I’ll be removing the shifter knob and adding a sporty one. After reading the forum it seems like it’s pretty tough to remove the knob. Does anybody have a suggestion before I take a Sawzall to it?

Just know the only way to get the original handle off is to destroy it, so be committed before undertaking the project.

Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

No need to destroy the original, just keep it as a spare. Just make a new blank rod with a threaded end (most screw on knobs etc are 3/8th) then add whatever you want as a handle/knob/whatever..

Well, in all fairness we are both correct.

Option 1: Use current rod by removing/destroying current handle
Option 2: Replace current rod with manufactured part

It's not about being correct TBH. Why destroy the original when you don't need to?? Getting a rod machined up to the same specs with a thread one end is simple and relatively cheap. Price may depend on who you ask to do the job but it's not a difficult task by no means. It's just a bit of lathe work and pretty much any machine/engineering shop would do it for not a huge charge. It's like about an hours work tops!! And the best bit ..... you still have the original rod to change back to if you wish OR want to sell the machine and the new potential owner wants it original as much as possible.

Hey i could get them made up for a decent price BUT add the postage to the US you guys would be able to get one made yourself for far less which makes as much sense as destroying the original. Let's face it, once the original is gone i don't think you can buy another, at least i haven't seen any for sale anyway.

Personally, I don't know why you would ever turn back. If you sell the pin then just leave it up to the buyer if they want the original.

Some buyers do not like mods and it's nice to be able to put it back as close to stock as possible. I know some people are picky about original boards but if stuff is roached then there's little you can do about that. In this hobby, if you can salvage parts without destroying them its a good thing and I'm sure you could sell them to someone else.

You could try to set something up with an online supplier (we know the lists), they buy parts from overseas and resell them here in the states.

I’m surprised nobody is making this mod and selling it. I don’t have the patients, so I think I’ll just destroy the original. I’m hoping to fit this puppy on in red

Do you know what the thread size is? I can most likely get my bro to machine a rod up for you if you want to go that way, i hate to think you'll destroy the original Something else you need to consider is that i'm pretty sure the original rods won't be threaded on the plastic end, they would have been press fitted. So if the one's shown in your pic are internally threaded (most are) you'd still need a thread machined on the end of the original OR maybe a sleeve that is threaded on the outside but round on the inside. Even then the diameters will need to match.

Even then the diameters will need to match.

A couple of things to consider:
- The rod is not threaded so if you use it then you must have a way to attach the replacement handle (I used a version with set screws)
- Some knobs may be too heavy and when installed will not allow the shifter to operate properly (i.e. it won't return to center)

Ah - yeah, missed your location. I still buy things from AUS on occasion though >.>

#12395 1 year ago

I did not consider the weight. That could become an issue. It’s made from carbon fiber and stainless steel. Also, If I can’t screw it on, I’ll do a temporary hold with strong carpenter double sided tape. Then possibly switch to A/B epoxy.

Stylish and cool, unique, personalized and modified boutique. Notes?Mounting hole diameter 8mm,10mm, 11mm, 12mm
??High Quality? The gear shift knob is selected from high Carbon Fiber and Stainless , corrosion resistant and durable.
??Convenient operation? Equipped with Self-tapping Screws (8mm + 10mm + 11mm+ 12mm) for maximizing buyers' utility.

Hello everyone. I've got another scratch build question that I hope someone here can answer. I'm trying to determine if there is a logical way the playfield GI wiring is routed. From the pictures I've found in this thread, it is difficult to tell. It seems that Org/Org Wht and Brn/Brn Wht pairs of the GI strings are on both sides so it isn't "left & right". I'd appreciate any pictures that might help clarify the GI wire routing.

Thanks in advance for the help...(again) !

#12397 1 year ago
Quoted from Walamab:

I'd appreciate any pictures that might help clarify the GI wire routing.

The routing isnt in the manual, but the GI as asuch and the wire colors are. Each section would have one wire, to which all GI in that segament are connected in parallel. Manual page 3-22.

Confirmed, a Sawzall will take the shifter knob off in about 2 minutes. I ended up cutting a portion of the metal rod. I expected it to be harder and thought I was cutting a steel ring. Anyway, it’ll come off no problem with a Sawzall, just take a little more time than I did. Learning lesson for the next guy. I still think the new knob will fit easily.

This machine has to be the funnest machine to mod. The shifter came in and looks great. The set screws will ensure the knob won’t move. The knob does have a little weight to it. Hopefully that won’t be a problem. I had know idea you could shift down in this game.
