Now you just need some lighted flippers.

Ordered them on October 5th, 2021, not sure when of their status on shipping.

Put in a few Mods:
LED Leg Light Ups from Mustang Paul
Slime sign and Slime along subway
Ecto-1 Car.
Pinmonk's light progression panels-a little tricky to install, need a heat gun to place a dab of glue to help them stay in position when placing them back into game.

Anti-Glare glass should be your next purchase!

Already on there. Camera has a hard time filtering, plus it was dark and I was not messing with the camera settings

How much were these?

LED Leg Light Ups from Mustang Paul

I wonder how they would look on the premium. Looks nice on your pro. Pink or purple?

I bought both Front and Rear Kits in Purple/Pink color, ($160.00) I added longer Chrome bolts and the clear washers, IDE connector, so my Total was $208.00

Left side plastic under library that covers cap balls. Does this black spacer go above or below the plastic?

Below plastic
Makes the plastic surface pitched away from the rail to help balls roll back to the playfield.

So after 3 years of of owning a pro I finally landed a premium for an upgrade. While previous I have maybe 4-5 games on a premium I was nervous how I was going to like the added features mainly the magna slings. But I must say this game being my Grail game in the pro the premium has far exceeded my expectations and put this game at a whole new level for me! This is my desert island pinball and I just keep finding new things in the game I didn’t know before. Regardless pro or premium this game kicks ass!

Wow, awesome to read this. I would love to play a premium as I just acquired a Pro. Love it so much.

Damn it, lol. I've been tossing around the idea of upgrading to a premium and reading something like this adds to the fire.

Still trying to locate black GB proton side rails for my game

Lmk if you might have a set

Thanks

I've played a pro and own a premium - and the premium rocks! How can anyone say the magna slings, subway, ecto goggle and roaming Slimer aren't worth it? The magna slings are so cool and fit the theme incredibly well and the left ramp to subway is one of the most amazing shots in pinball. The right ramp? Ok I'll give you that - it's so hard to hit with anything approaching consistency on the premium and it not a very satisfying shot, but that is one small blip on an otherwise stellar machine!

Quoted from Ceemunkey:

Agreed on that! Even using a shorter hex post to reduce the height of the ramp fixing some rejects, it's still a very tight shot to make

I have to say I had read this a ton and this added to my hesitation on upgrading but the previous owner of my premium must have dialed in that ramp because I have been able to loop that ramp 3-4 times in a row and hit it with pretty good consistency

Is that the ramp where Cliffy suggests placing a washer under the mounting tab to the left of the blue nub to help it not rub the playfield?

#9866 41 days ago

I bought lighted post mod kits from Comet, but looking at these right posts, I can't figure out how I would get to them. It seems I might need to remove the under playfield ramp, but I don't see how it's possible to remove it. Any pointers?

Can someone tell me what color spring is used in the shooter for premium or LE? Mine has orange/red…. Very strong. Wondering if that’s correct

It comes with orange but many people switch it to green.

Anyone have any issues with the time resetting?
Any time I power up the game it resets to this date.
All of the high scores and game setting are fine but the clock doesn’t stay.
I tried power cycling after saving and it’s fine but being off over night seems to reset the time and date.

Bolted down man haha I love this thing, plus I have it dialed in. Plays like butter
Had the family over last night and set it at God Mode. Letting some non-pinballers have it. Getting them addicted anyway I can.

I had a battery on hand and popped it in, so should be good to go now.

I haven't ran away! Been printing and printing. Got the interior items all drawn up and sorted out but just trying different colours for different items so everything does not look all the same.

Yes he is, just send him a PM and he will send you a very detailed explanation of what he offers. Was very informative and helped me narrow down what I needed and what I did not.

#9879 39 days ago
Quoted from Flash71:

Since my last picture posted they now have the following changes.

-Holes in floors for fire pole have the metal fall guards like in the movie, real brass for the fire poles

-Furniture on main floor, wood colour lockers as per movie, corner shaped desk with a "we got one" desk button, chair , papers scattered on desk top and im trying to do a non lighting desk lamp.

-Furniture on second floor, grey colour lockers, kitchen counter with uppers, round table and chairs, and the Stargazer pinball with legible graphics.

- The roof now screws on and the 2 fasteners and now hidden with magnetic clip on covers so they look like roof components.

- The front of the fire house now has a leg that goes down all the way to the playfield to keep it more rigid. (this can not been seen as the existing plastic covers the leg)

-Added a Ghostbuster sign to the side of the building that is above the ramp area.

-Added stone features to the roof line like the real firehouse.

-Made the rear of the firehouse blocked off internally so the wires for the general lightning and the flashing roof blow hole can now run down without being seen.

#9880 39 days ago

This picture is still with a prototype fire hall, but it shows the signage and stone accents. This also shows the bad quality draft print for my central city layout. I reduced the number of buildings and made them larger so i can light them up like my Tron city mod. the buildings will possibly be different tones and all have different colour roofs and building features. Some windows will be blacked out and make it look more real.

The inside was lit from day one. Each level has 2 led post lights installed and simply plugs into the existing playfield connection. The original flasher led at the top of the old prop is relocated to the new blast hole in my firehouse.

Anywhere i can find a rules guide with the newest code integrated?

#9893 37 days ago
Quoted from wolffcub:

The firehouse ghostbusters deserves. Prototype is finished. Just need to work on the interior furniture now. Each level is lit and the roof hole is connected to the existing flasher so it flashes purple. The pinstadium lighting also runs properly above it and does not make contact with the roof. With the rest of the lit up buildings things should tie together nicely.

This looks fantastic! I just rejoined the club earlier this month and have been decking out my premium. Really like how this sits with the pinstadiums too!

Were you planning on starting a preorder list?

It is designed to clear the pin stadium lights so you will not have issues at the roof line. I will post up the finalized details of the final firehouse later today. So far the list has 28 people. I am doing a run of 36 only for this mod so 8 spots are left. Pm me if you want on the list.

#9897 36 days ago

It's all finalized!!!

I don’t want to clutter up this thread with Pinsider name lists and progress posts so I will create a new one. Anyone with interest in the firehouse mods or any of my GB mods please jump to this link below to follow along. I will also be listing my Central City mod, Library mod, PKE tower mod , and Ghost trap mod in the new thread. Every once in a while I will make a mod post in this original GB club thread.

Hit up that guy, I think $9500 for Premium sounds about right. They don't come up all that often it seems and it really is an underappreciated game.

As for holding value, probably not. I expect all our pinball purchases to lose money. It is a crazy time we live in with inflation but the bubble will pop one day (I know, this has been said on here for 20 years).
