BEAUTIFUL game jmountjoy111! One day I will give my HH the royal treatment of a full teardown overhaul restoration.
I just got my HH a companion that matches the theme way better than Black Hole. Don't get me wrong, I loved the BH/HH combo, but there's nothing like having this theme stronger than ever with these two side by side! My Halloween parties are going to be KILLER.
But I will say, despite all the bells and whistles TFTC offers, I still have friends who come over and want to rock nothing but the classic feel and sounds of the HH.
Also, I never thought I'd do this, but I'm experimenting with LEDs now. I went warm retro LED everywhere I could for backbox/main PF GI and inserts to keep the original 80's flair of the game alive, but I went all green LED in the attic with one warm retro LED at the grandfather clock which throws a warm light on the drops and stand targets, and it also creates a shadow when ball is up there which looks cool. I'm flipping between warm retro or green for the Pop bumpers, can't decide yet.
Then, I went all blue LED in the basement which looks AWESOME. The ball down there almost glows and feels like you've entered a spooky subterranean space. Very happy with how that turned out.
I said from the gate with my HH, I'm staying as original as possible with old bulbs and parts to keep it true to '82 yadi-yadi-yada. Now, I've tasted the health benefits of using LED for the machine and all the fun in picking out the color schemes. I may never go back...
Long live the Haunted House!
