Damn, if they’d give us another one of those juicy covid cooties stimulus checks I might have to take a look at this.
After many hours of troubleshooting and replacing components, Gilligan's Island lives again. I had to refresh all my PCB soldering and electronics knowledge. I had family over yesterday to play and the game was a huge hit. I have learned so much more about solid state pins and the fun of mods and upgrades.
On that note, looking to put some LEDs under the playfield and behind the translite. Do others prefer using white LEDs or color LEDs? And who are your favorite LED vendors for price and quality?
I go with color matching for inserts except for orange and yellow I use white. As far as GI is concerned I usually go with frosted lens white. For backbox I usually go with mostly natural white and use some color where it matches the graphics. You really just have to experiment with the backbox and see what looks good. I have been buying strictly Comet Pinball bulbs as of the past few of years. They have good quality and prices they also have great black Friday sales and I usually stock up then. I have also purchased Cointaker bulbs in the past and they seem to be fine also I just like Comet better.
So one of our members is having a birthday today? We won’t mention any names you will have to guess who
