New owner of IJ here...can anyone tell me which shots are possible to back-hand from right flipper? The machine I bought has different coils installed for the two flippers (blue FL-11629 on left, red FL-11630on right, so I am likely going to replace the right coil with the correct factory coil since it seems underpowered.

#4352 5 months ago

Yeah I’m trying to convince myself that I have the skills to paint this and that I have the patience.

There’s a very good possibility I could actually make it look worse and lose time I won’t get back

Quoted from wolfemaaan:

Damn - is that the custom Marcos painted? Looks awesome!. The original actually has grooves in the body and cockpit is defined, the mold of Marcos really took shortcuts so curious if that's a Marcos painted.
Ive seen another thread where people have been buying 1/48 scale ww2 model planes and throwing those in. Curious if anybody has had any luck with that

They are originals.
Custom painted by SPINNY-VINNY on here.
Look close and you can see Sean Connery in the cockpit with a machine gun.

Quoted from trumpy:

here is the bottom cnr of mine . 135 &137 are for backboard jackpot light board . is it .100 or .156 spaced .

I believe this connector is for the backboard jackpot light board. The wires loop back to J135 and 138. Notice the colors of the wires. It strange because I do not have a backboard jackpot light board installed ....yet.

On another note. I have an LED kit for this game but I just don't think I want to put them in. The game looks perfect to me. Nice and clean and original looking.

Ok, now you’re just rubbin it in. Hey look, can you see Harrison Ford in my plane? That tan looking thing is the top of his middle finger to your Spinny Vinny fancy planes

Why Marcos gotta do me wrong like this?

I bought the jackpot light board from Marco and I was wondering if there are DIY instructions somewhere for cutting out the three jackpots on the speaker panel board?

#4359 4 months ago
Quoted from PappyBoyington:

I used a drill with a fairly large bit and traced the 3 items out onto the board and slow cut out the board, taking a little off at a time using a flashlight lighting up from behind. It came with absolutely no instructions whatsoever which sucks, but it wasn’t too bad.

#4360 4 months ago

I might have a bead on a machine to purchase. Still have to look t it but owner bought new in the 90s and has been in his game room ever since. Might be able to get it for under 2K. Thoughts?

Under 2K!? Yeah that’s a buy now for sure

Thanks 2Pup. How did you trace the images onto the board?

#4364 4 months ago

I used a ruler and a pencil. Measure into the images from top and bottom and side to side. If I were to do it again, I would probably use tracing paper to make it easier. I started with holes smaller than needed and increased them to final size. The chest was the hardest, on my list to finish up lol. I might clean it up with a dremel. I think someone on the thread was selling a precut one done professionally, but seemed a bit too much for me unless I was doing a high end restore.

Thanks man, I have a dremel so I think I will take your advice and try to use tracing paper. I can't believe someone hasn't posted a DIY guide for this.

#4366 4 months ago

Well I threw caution at the wind and went for it. Turned out pretty easy. Just traced the three jackpots and then placed the traced paper on the wood and started drilling and cutting with my jig saw and drill. Just need to sand the edges and maybe put a little black marker on the plastic to prevent light leak. Then put it together and wait for my lamp board from Marco.

It’s under $2K until he looks on Pinside or EBay, then add $8K. Otherwise be careful, sounds like a scam (unless you know the dude). Bottom line, no HUO IJ is selling for less than $6K so do your homework & legwork before paying penny

If you ask him what he wants and he gives you an amount, no.

If you asks you and you understate the value, then yeah kinda.

I fully replaced both my flippers a year ago so they are in top shape. I am able to right flipper backhand almost every shot except for the full right ramp to the upper playfield. (I can backhand the right ramp, but not all the up the Path of Adventure)

Thanks...I replaced the right coil with factory correct and it is crisper; I can right backhand partway up the right ramp but not all the way around to POA. Appreciate your response!

#4378 4 months ago

Ordered this from Marco. No screws...no instructions.

#4379 4 months ago

How much does it cost?

#4380 4 months ago

I figured out how to install it. However the LEDs look way cooler than all the other lights in my game. I'm going to see if I can find some warm LEDs to put into this board. The board was made by pindorabox.com. So far my first impression of them is not so good.

Maybe put a yellow gel between the lamp and the plastic?

I’d love to see a few pix of how you installed it. I really want to do this mod on my IJ.

The lamp board screws into the back of the speaker panel. Just make sure the lights on the board are centered on each cutout and screw it down. Once connector goes to 133 and the other to 138.

This same board from marco burnt up on me within 6 months of use. Just turned it on way day and smokey smoked.
Those cool bulbs burn hot to, dont think diffusion or gels would last long.

Im completely wrong.
My board is different.
Sorry Marco.

Quoted from PappyBoyington:

It was 6 months, I didnt ask. Im not that guy who hauls stuff back to costco either.
I have a prototype board machine came with. I reworked it and added led's to it. I still have it. Ill find it and post a pic.
At least you are aware of issue now and can watch for it.

Thank you for the information. I would like to know if your issue is a design flaw or just a single misshap. Hopefully somebody can chime in with their luck on these boards made by Pindorabox. Or if somebody has another recomedation for this board. Possibly Pinbits or somebody else?

#4388 4 months ago

And what’s the word with these jackpot boards fitting in when a color dmd is installed?

#4389 4 months ago
Quoted from WW2GURU:

They’ll fit fine with a LED in the stock position, but with an LCD you need to install it offset to accomodate the board and then change the display position in the settings.

There's no way that he is not going to be curious of the value and look it up, either before you go to buy it or after he has sold it. You know what the right thing to do is. Make the guy's day and be honest and fair.

Blown away by this! The Lite Jackpot plastic is a total eyesore. Great job!

Quoted from KornFreak28:

Thank you both! The positive feedback is much appreciated. No idea how many hours ultimately went into the project, but there were many redesigns and failed prints along the way to get everything to look and fit just right (as usual ). Can see I was originally going with a longer wall, but had to wrap it around to make sure the plane wouldn't cause any issue.

Part on the far right is the newest version, but of course unfinished. Changes over the main pictured mod, which was the version between the two right-most models, is a very slightly slimmer left side (though the test model already fit without issue). Also added slits inside for the red insert.

Inner shaping takes the rivets on the factory plastic and such into account as well.

What would the bottom number be then. I have been out of the game for about 10 years. I am recently back and I am still trying to nail down the market. Is the bottom 4K? 6K? I welcome ideas on price. Let’s say it is in good condition but some wear.

You don’t see IJs go under 6k too often these days, unless they’re legit basket cases. If you can get into a working one for 5k I’d feel like you did really well.

To be totally honest in your situation I don’t think I’d feel one bit guilty about a starting offer of 4k and just seeing where it goes.
