@grinder901
You should change then bumper bodies and skirts to clear ones.
That would look the mutts nuts

Excuse my ignorance. Bumper bodies and skirts?

Getting there Grinder I installed the jeweled caps on mine with the flash lights from pinball life.

Thanks man. I wanted to go that route but couldn't find the green jeweled caps anywhere or all clear.

I like Comets' led rings because it also has warm whites that shine downward which helps brighten the playfield around the pops.

That and they are half the price. I got a set of purple and a set of red to try in my Elvis.

#1955 3 years ago

Pinball life has all of those parts, though the website is hard to navigate sometimes. Worst case I have half a dozen of each color in my box for just such an emergency. The lights in mine shine down as well. These are what are in there. http://www.pinballlife.com/index.php?p=product&id=3624

Quoted from silver_spinner:

anyone have issues where sometimes the ball lock in the wire form lets 2 balls go instead of just one...like in multi player games if someone already has a ball locked, you lock a ball and its supposed to let one go to continue play?

Common problem. Pinball Arcade's simulated table even does it!

The disappearing post is unobtanium, but pull it out, clean it, replace the sleeve, and replace the spring. I haven't had the issue since I did that.

#1957 3 years ago
Quoted from Grinder901:

Thanks man. I swapped the red and green. I agree much better.

are they self-adhesive? how do they stay in there?

This is a common issue. If cleaning the assembly and putting in a new spring doesnt do it, just add another spring so there are 2 springs , that usually does the trick.

Dabs of hot glue.

Ok great but those caps are for Data East/Sega/Stern games. Would they even fit Getaway?

Here are caps for Williams games

No greens

#1960 3 years ago
Quoted from Grinder901:

But I wish I had just bought these

Is that because they were about $25 less, or are you suggesting the ones $199 are better?

Quoted from Kerry_Richard:

Cheaper and domestic. Jumped too soon and bought the first set I saw. I would have had them here by now. My set is still stuck in NY has has been since the 19th.....

The blue ring in your pic is the skirt.
The body is the body! The bit that holds the bulb and the cap.
Clear ones look great in general.

I ordered colored skirts to match the LED ring color. John, I also ordered the colored jeweled caps

#1968 3 years ago

You are a madman Grinder!

#1969 3 years ago

I have been following the discussion on ROM versions in this thread. I acquired a Getaway few days ago, it has L5. Contemplating trying L2 as well, but what is P7 and C-C mentioned in the poll? Someone made a custom rom that combines best of both worlds?

Ya know what's cool, that German parts seller (can't remember the name right now) has clear colored plastic pop bumper bodies. I've never heard of anyone putting them on a game. I wonder how they look.

Hey Grinder, did you get your police car mod? How does it look?

Got it James. Looks great. Was thinking about trying to paint it in my patrol car colors. Once I get the super charger back from Mike, I'll mount the car.

Oh man. Lots of good stuff. I can't decide on colored or transparent bodies and skirts. And oh wow they have gold bodies and skirts that might look awesome on my brassed Elvis. Ok I have a shopping cart all ready and let's see the damage and oh sweet baby Jesus $39 euros for shipping!?!?!?

Haha ah man that hurts. The damn things have been stuck in NY for almost ten days now. Is this shit normal?!?

#1991 3 years ago

For some reason Customs is holding it up....not normal.

#1993 3 years ago

That's what you get for not sharing your pop bumper parts order.

I've had the same thing happen with parts coming the other way Mind you, only took 4 days to go from Melbourne to New York, the hold up is most definitely at bloody customs, gawwwdd that's annoying !! With all the scans and stuff they do these days you'd think it wouldn't be hard to work out it's only decals

#1996 3 years ago

Grinder, did you order three different colors of pop bumper bodies for Getaway? Wondering if the green/yellow/red bodies will look good with the matching pop bumper caps.

#1997 3 years ago

I'll ask my wife. She worked for a company for years that had to ship stuff from China all the time. She has a lot of experience with stuff stuck in customs. I think she may have a number for you to call. I'll let you know.
