Incandescent flashers always. Then 2smd frosted bulbs all over.
I'm not doing much with color but I think I'm gonna put some purple bulbs under my Extra Ball indicators. I'm pretty sure they were purple originally but most of the color has faded.
Roms seem to be working great!
Dip switch 8 to on for 1,000,000 at the ramp every 40 switches.
Off for random ramp lighting for 2,000,000.
Also, here are the mods I made to the sign and the instruction card. We only do mods in this house that look factory.
Quoted from turner18:
do you still need a topper?? its a little rough but all there..
i got a gottlieb monte carlo thats going to become a parts machine. too much water damage and acid damage. text me. we can work something out. 1 208 969 1868 i will send a couple pics. thanks joe
Actually it looks like my machine may be going to a new home. I'll be sure to pass along the info since they may have room for the topper. Unfortunately often have to avoid toppers since they are often too tall for the basement.
I'm tying up some loose ends on my game and it would be a huge help if I could get a couple reference photos from other Monte Carlo machines. In particular:
- Pictures of where the power cord comes into the machine and how it is attached and connected. (Want to ensure all that is correct)
- Under the playfield I could use pictures of the GI sockets. One of them that goes under the triangular piece of plastic by the flipper was pulled out and hanging. looks like it connected to the ground braid and a couple other wires. Again I want to confirm everything is correct. Want to put that back where it belongs and put a bulb back in.
Who knew. Monte Carlo was my second game when I was 16. I remember it being meh. I just got it back from my parents basement and I was amazed at the condition. I guess when you play a game just a bit for a few years then let it sit for 22…it’ll keep! I was going to sell this sight unseen, and now I may have to keep it as I’m kind of digging the shots and gameplay. This thing is so 80s cheesy with the music, faux marble, translite and we’ll everything that it’s…like…good!
My 9 year old just put up $11M first game LOL. Hit the ramp.
Topper is complete, but needs some work. Translite is faded like a som of a gun! Printing a new one. I think I may actually hit this with comet leds on inserts too - hit the GI already.
