Quoted from Averell:

Original the Panel has three big rectangular holes.

The Problem is that the small LED reproduction will not work properly because the holes are too big.
I transmit the symbols from the Panel to the Board and cut out the outlines only.

That's why I consider to produce my own IJ jackpot LED board, with adjustable brightness, and more LED's at Ark area.
Normal cut out will work in case we have cover from backside. This is my plan: own jackpot board + decal.

#2352 2 years ago

That's exactly what I did.

Quoted from Averell:

You mean shape cutout + decal + own PCB with more LED's?

#2354 2 years ago

No, I use a LED board with original panel.
Just shape cutout and it's perfect.

The color of the caps next to the star posts have to be red.
And white rubbers...

I know, I like the look of the yellow caps, yellow rubbers and brass plated screws

#2358 2 years ago

Here too! I also brass plated the gates

Nice work, your Indy will be a beauty again, but still missing Cliffy at the drop target?
Left of the "I" behind the plate there's the spot with the missing light we're talking about... just connect it parallel to the four lights of INDY and use the same socket.
I decided black chrome on the gates and all original color design for rubbers, bumpers, etc.
And what do you do with the ramps?
My ramps are gold-plated and they shine like a treasure, quite expensive but worth it.

Cliffy protectors for the single and 3 bank targets are coming. I also ordered the mode start and shooter lane cliffy. POA switch will also get protected thanks to your idea.

Ramps were re-grained and polished and look amazing!

Thinking if this could be made in a dark brown to match Lior's idol ruins coming soon?

In fact, I can do any color from available printing materials. Of course need a certain door lock quantity to order a roll of filament.
I can also cooperate with Lior, and send him door locks, then he can send ruins worldwide with door locks in the box, in order to save freight cost for you guys.
Then the next step will be a dark brown idol assembly
...and then new idol from Lior

Imagine, a door lock, like this

#2367 2 years ago

Wow, great mods. I thought I had my IJ fully modded. Looks like I will be adding more!

#2368 2 years ago

I have added the "Ark of the Covenant" right over the shooting lane.
Bought it at Ebay for 10 Euro.
All used parts are any parts from F-14 and INDY.
Additional I've illuminated it with blue light and I placed a thin pane of a glass plate between.
The circuit is easy and consist only a Diode, two capacitors and two LED.
The bracket is from F-14 Tomcat and fits perfect to the gap of screws of the plastic.

Really nice. Why do you have 3 playfields?

#2373 2 years ago

Part 2.
After first coating.

#2374 2 years ago

Part 3.
During touch up, fine corrections.
This pf has new inserts, except the big yellow arrows.
No decals; only screen print.

Oh snap are you going to sell those?

We have 3 IJ waiting for restoration.

This is for own project, not for sale.
Only for visual porn, sorry

If you can make 3 you can make 30 and sell for a lot of $$, no?

#2379 2 years ago

Wow. That is awesome! You do really nice work. I am a new IJ owner and love the pin. I am glad to see that these pins are getting restored. It is probably the best pin I have ever played.

#2380 2 years ago

Really impressive... go ahead.

Not once Rick gets wind of it.

Quoted from Rondogg:

In theory, yes. In practice: can be difficult due to logistic issues between US and EU.

#2383 2 years ago

I did only small corrections. Screen printing is done by another guy; wood art, coating by an expert. Teamwork.

#2384 2 years ago

Those CQ IJ pins would sell very quickly here in the USA. IJ is one of those pins that does not come up for sale often.

#2385 2 years ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

Not once Rick gets wind of it.

This is not a new pf from scratch. The wood is original, we have removed original faded and damaged artwork, then applied new.
This is a restoration process, not pf reproduction, like CPR or Mirco.

#2386 2 years ago

I remember a guy in Hungary who does reproduction and the playfields are not that bad, but rare.

#2387 2 years ago

Really need a "Narrow Escape" wire gate that goes to right flipper from idol lock. Mine has always been wrong, not the right one.
Please PM me if you have a spare your willing to sell.
Marcos has been out for over a year, probably 2.

Thanks!!!

Having a really hard time fitting the captive ball cage. I assume the lost plastic has something to do with it. Did you guys cut it to fit the cage? Not sure what to do here

#2391 2 years ago

L-7 Game ROM at IPDB for download... http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=1267

Loose the screws from BackPanel and bent the ramp infront of the Plastic, but take care not to scratch it.
Then fix the screws step by step.

Thank you! What did you use to bend the ramp?

#2393 2 years ago

Ramp should fit without bending... sure the bolts of the backpanel are in right position, or the panel itself?
Panel must stand in right angled to the playfield.

Quoted from Averell:

I don't see any other way of installing the panel? Screws were installed correctly. So the panel must be angled towards the playfield?

#2395 2 years ago

Often the panels are a little bit deformed, take a closer look.
Loose the screws and fit in the ramp and then fix the screws again but carefully.
Are the two bolt on the playfield crooked... the ramp must fit in place without violence.
Also, keep in mind that the ramp was maybe mounted without lost plastic, the plactic is approx. 2mm thicker and so the ramp doesn't fit?

That's what I was thinking. Surely the lost plastic isn't helping. I will remove the panel and see if that does the trick.

#2397 2 years ago

Btw, The posts on the playfield are straight. They go into T-nuts.

#2398 2 years ago

It must fit... here's my ramp mounted to an illuminated BackPlex.

Please share a picture about this part.

This gate is to small and you can see doesnt even go to screw. Just doesnt work right, not a one way gate.
