Quoted from pinballaddicted:

It is an awesome mod and I am looking forward to making and fitting one to our Mando when it arrives. Awesome instructions.
I have a request as I am not really a modder. Could you please give me a size of the female connector (instruction sheet says 6 pin, but I think it is a 5 pin) for Stern cabinet node 12V and the location of the wires (e.g. red is pin 1 and black is pin 4) and the loaction of connection on the cabinet node board (eg CN11)
Thanks

I ordered one of these... when you goto the link, it shows you where to connect.

The spike-12v-power-adapter also has the suggested in-line fuse holder.

Quoted from PoMC:

Yes, the relay I have does not step down to 5v output. I ordered a 12v - 5v step down converter for $8 and will use that instead of the resistors. I didn't have the right resistors needed and could only get the output down to 8.5v.
Slowed him down some, but not like out of the box. It arrives on Friday so will have to wait.

I have the same issue. I didn't see anything in the PDF with regards changes required to the speed etc.
What converter did you buy, and where from? Also, how does that wire in??
Thank you in advance.

Or I could use this resistors, what would I need there?
Thanks again

I bought this step-down converter and it arrived today from Amazon. Will test it out tomorrow at some point, probably in the evening, and report back.

And don't user resistors. Too much heat and not the way to correctly and safely get 5v.

OK, Cool. Thank you.

Had some time this evening to finish up mounting the relay, converter and Grogu. All done. What a fantastic upgrade!
Much thanks to everyone involved with the mod!

hey PoMC
Any final video? Also interested in pics on how you mounted the new modded grogu?
Thank you

Yup, here's video I took when test fitting and playing one handed. I'm streaming gameplay on FB later and will take a better video then as well.

I mounted using the suggestion in the instructions. When you make the mod, you'll have two plastic stand-offs at the bottom front of Grogu. Slide them under the ramp protector and he stays in place. I'll probably make a mounting plate for him since the original bolt holes in the backboard from the original Grogu are there to use. But he's not going anywhere as is.

Looks super cool! Did you mount the light censor in the same place the Acejedi suggested?
Thanks again

Here is quick ball one demo of the alt mod.

So, you put the sensor underneath the playfield, and cable tied it near the left Child Insert? Also, how did you mount Grogu. Can you attach any pics of how you mounted him??
Thank you.
