Just joined the club!! Excited to play but my backbox was removed and I have to play "connect the wires"

Can someone please post some high res images of inside the backbox focusing on where jumpers are plugged in?

Quoted from tiltmonster:

Welcome! Try these... good luck!

ITS ALIVE!!!!!! Thank you so much for the pics!!

Man this game is freaking fun!!!!

Pulled the mylar the playfield is PERFECT!!!!!

Came right off with slow consistent pulling, cleaned and waxed it and while buffing found a couple tiny glue spots but the glue ate the wax and wiped off effortlessly!!!!!!!

Sooooo badddddd

So I took the supercharger and rear ramp off and DANG was it dirty back there.

Thank GOD it all cleaned off perfectly!!! Whoever invented diamond plate might be my new favorite pinball wizard.

My ramp also hangs just a low when up, and has a tendency to tap the ball and slow it down a little/get it stuck back there. I see the adjust screw and I raised it but now the bottom of the ramp doesn't make good contact and I think it's because...

I noticed that my raising ramp is missing its ramp flaps and rivets.

So anyone have a source for these that is in stock? And anyone have a source for a tool I can use to rivet le rivets?

Thanks speeders!

Quoted from MustangPaul:

Does your scoop hole plastic still have the 2 nubs that stick up? I can't quite tell.

Yes it does

Also you can see my missing ramp flap in this one

If anyone has a source for a ramp flap,rivets, rivet tool id appreciate it

What's the deal with the lock ramp. I can't hit it from a caught/stopped ball on the right flipper but I can make it if I play a live ball correctly. Is this on purpose or is my flipper too weak?

Put a new coil sleeve in my upper flipper (only destroyed 3 trying to get it in).
After I put the new sleeve in it was sticking really bad and I noticed the solienoid lug was a little warped. Changed the coil stop and dremeled off the warping so it was smooth and WOW the upper loop is quick now. This game is really fast and really really fun when it's dialed in!

Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

Okay, so I locked my computer at work and when I came back the lock screen screamed Getaway to me. I took a few liberties in Photoshop, but aside from the vehicles the pic is 100% untouched.

Is there a way to clear the text? that would make a really cool background for an instruction card!

I bought a couple of cheap slot car lambos on ebay, opened them up pulled the motors and hot glued in a 44 led flex bulb from comet with a matrix plug. There is already a light pipe running to the headlights and it came out GREAT!!

I hooked them up to the lock lights and now when my lock is ready the headlights blink. Very cool and easy mod that adds sitaw!!

Quoted from artur_n:

I need help with my Getawy. I have error "up/down ramp error". I've checked switches, the coils works correctly during the test. When I start the game, everything is ok until the lock is activated. Then ramp is going all the time up and down. Any idea what is wrong?

I think there is a switch that the ramp hits that lets the cpu know the gate is actually up. I would check that switch, and especially the Molex connector it uses to connect below the playfield

I put a comet led strip on the back of my metal loop with a dimmer adjust, it lights up the back area quite nicely!

Also you can see their 6 led fan bulbs in my bumpers, I think they are the best without stepping up to pcb rings

I've got a pic from the players perspective like 3 posts up,
But here

Quoted from Jakusu:

That looks like a great idea. I'm just adding custom lighting now to my restore as I finish off the playfield. Any chance of a shot from the player perspective?
I added a 3 led strip on bracket on the backboard to light the road just before the ramp already.
Progress shot below. Made my own ramp decal design and got it printed up.
Looking for an option for the donut shop now but not keen on the one available. Anyone done anything else the besides the decal options on the plate?
Would really love the original mountain mod too but none around.

Personally that chroming service is waayyy too much of an investment for me, but different strokes for different folks I guess.

If you wipe your butt with hundreds then I say go for it, shoot have em re chrome all your pinballs and silverwear while they are at it

Just saw the new guys table.....HOLY SHIT IT'S MAGNIFICENT!!!!!! Great pickup man!!!! You are totally right about condition being key, I bought a fixer upper and every single thing I had to do to it was a noticeable gameplay improvement. It literally felt like tuning up an old carbureated motor
