Quoted from swenny:
Another Q for IJ owners. I'm going to put LED's behind my translite. Would you use frosted or clear? I know it's probably personal preference, but just curious what others have liked best.
First, I know the photo is terrible, but it's just for reference. I used a mix to get the perfect amount of light spread that I wanted.
-The red and orange up top are ablaze clear 3led. This keeps the color focused on the Williams and Indiana Jones logos without much bleed into the artwork.
- Incandescents are used in the middle to keep the warm tone in specific areas. I haven't found a warm white LED yet that I'm completely happy with.
- Cool white frosted LEDs were used to highlight specific spots (faces, items, etc). frosted gives an even spread without hot-spotting.
I've also deliberately left multiple sockets empty for a couple reasons:
There is more than enough light.
It further reduces the strain on the GI string.
Reflective glare is minimized.
One day I'll stop putting all my money into pinball and buy a decent camera, but I'm really happy with this configuration. The saturation levels are not overdone (no color bombs), and it works well to enhance the original artwork instead of overpowering it.
