Quoted from Yelobird:

I was considering (a mod offing if there was interest) changing the "flying car" with a race type Hot Wheels plane with a race banner behind it. Crazy thought??

Reminiscent of the bomber in Tommy.

And there are some Hot Wheel planes out there. Quick Google search turns them up.

May consider the Hot Wheels stunt plane with banner mod if there is an interest. Fairly easy to do yourself but we could offer if others wanted one. Would replace the flying car?!?

I have a full plate for the moment. When the time approaches; I wonder if a light diffuser could be placed at the HW logo. Perhaps at the place flags too.

I also wonder, in the future, if you'd accept a digital model of another wheel style for printing?

A defuser would be simple enough though I thought this was a multi color change insert. Would be more then happy to look at another wheel design though Redline seemed appropriate and there are limitations to consider with the flag spring clearances needed for them to function. Always open to suggestions. Thanks.

The HW City products feel like a modern take from past designs. The modern wheels with low profile tires are my wishes. I don't believe the digital artists exaggerated the HW design in these images. Perhaps the lettering should be American Pinball?

Could yelobird make custom American Pinball wheels for the cars ?

I attempted to order Hot Wheels accessories last week. The purchase would fail continuously. Oh well, I'll deal with it later.

Today my cart remained and I attempted again. No-go. I put Pinside to the test and found that I can place purchases with any random vendor without issues. However purchases with TheModCouple will fail and produce this message "Your payment can't be completed. Please return to the participating website and try again." Any ideas?

Experimenting with a few Hot Wheels flying stunt plane for car swap options but they have so many really cool ones to choose from. Thinking this might look good though.

I was serious.

Gorilla is great. But not monkey enough.

Don't forget his little band aids.

This will keep the jinx off of Hot Wheels and keep American Pinball going for many, many years.

Wanted to say thanks. Your mods look great in pictures, but when you have them in hand; Wow! These are reeeally freeekin' cool. I'm proud to have them. They are truly special. I'll goof around the remainder of the week and install them on the 1st. Wish you well and thanks again.

You plugging it in ? Then just be sure it's a 5 volt DBA.

You hard wiring it in ? Then best know what you are doing.

Need the lights of the Goodyear blimp to read “Ice Cube’s a pimp”

Then, take my money

(Once I have a HotWheels lol)

The Gorilla's ball received a direct hit from a battle target ricochet. The ball disappeared until today; the coinbox. I'm preparing CA glue to re-attach. Perhaps there's a better solution.

Ouch LTG must have taken a direct hit! Very sorry we have since went with a bonded epoxy so this never happens again. Sorry you had an issue.

It's great. I'm cool with your mods. Not much we can do when the pinball dominates the playfield.
