Hi everyone

first of all a big thank you to TomDK, Averell and everyone who will help me

I decided to open this post for help because if the information can be available on the forum, it is scattered everywhere and it is not easy to find sometimes and maybe other person would like to transform their SE version in LE
So I decided to add the options of an LE on an SE here are the questions I ask myself. I would then add your answer or link

1) The backglass: is it possible to still find the LE version on sale?

2) The exterior sides of the body: is it still possible to find the LE version for sale?

3) The beacons: 2 solutions

a) buy the originals which may still be available

- free play pinball : https://www.free-play.se/en/cabinet-parts/misc-cabinet/alien-warning-lights-beacon.html
- gameroom : https://www.gameroom.no/product/alien-warning-lights-beacon/

b) buy these versions on ebay or ali-express but you will have to paint the base in black because not available in black.

- ali express : https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/4001220139524.html?spm=a2g0o.9042311.0.0.3a3f6c37p9ZdZi
- ebay : ebay.com link: itm

(Installation to come)

4) the motor shaker: again you can buy the stern spike shaker which can be found everywhere.

(Installation to come)

5) Internal side with light (the top) this existed as an option for the SE but some do not have it and yet it is a great option to have absolutely and that I do not have. I thank TomDK for this link but if someone could give us pictures of the power supplies and how to do it for the backboard too would be great


photo and installation to come soon I hope with the help of the pinside community
