Just got my cpr backglass wow! The mirroring is really awesome, adds some
nice depth. The color saturation is definitely different. It’s a cooler tone and slightly desaturated compared to the original. There is also some subtle differences in the font. But over all I really like it!

Anything you don’t like about it? Is it a major improvement over original?

#4403 1 year ago

Thanks for letting us know it's back in stock! I just ordered mine.

I actually like that it’s not overly color graded orange... meaning the colors look more natural, and the mirroring is awesome. Only thing is it will not fit with the lift channel. But I like it a lot!

So what’s the trick to installing if it doesn’t fit the lift trim?

#4406 1 year ago

So I installed the top, left, and right trim just not the bottom. As far as I can tell actually only really need the sides. To get the glass out u have to use your palms and push it up. This backglass is thicker than the old glass and translite

Can you show what it looks like installed with lights on & lights off? Curious to see how it compares to the original lighting

#4408 1 year ago

It doesn’t come with a lift trim?? That’s unfortunate.

I really want these for my IJ and TZ.

I agree, I want the lift trim on it.

#4410 1 year ago

The original translite looks better and the writing letters are much more common to the entire game design.
I'm sorry, but this silver mirror design is past the theme and fits rather to the Space Invaders.

#4411 1 year ago

I love this look... it’s actually quite subtle and not overbearing IMHO. I got steel lift channel from mantisamusements and had it powder coated and it fits nicely!

#4412 1 year ago

Nice ricochet would you mind posting a pic? here is a pic of mine lit and unlit, I need to change out some of my leds in the backbox as they are colored and that was a different phase of my life lol.

Also pretty sure you could get the lift trim to work you would need to cut out the inner edges to thin it down then would probably work fine

#4413 1 year ago

Weird, I was able to squeeze mine into the lift channel.

Here's mine w/ machine off + lit up with comet 1 smd warm white frosted bulbs, pretty much the best way to go generally... The mirrored bits look pretty dark from players view and the contrast is a big step up from the original!

#4414 1 year ago

Got my lift channel to fit just needed a little trimming

#4415 1 year ago

Soulrider911 my machine is in pieces but here is the lift channel on the glass...

The lift channel is cut to fit ... I had mine cut to 26 7/8” ... it’s a perfect fit. I’m thinking I will line it with felt or something because I have a shaker in my machine and I don’t want it rattling.

Almost finished with the restore but having issues with the POA. Any insights would be greatly appreciated

Here's what's happening: The mini playfield is hitting the Lite Jackpot ramp when tilting to the right, preventing the mini playfield from fully tilting.

Obviously, the consequence of this is that the ball can't travel all the way down the right side of the mini playfield.

Has anyone ever experienced this? If so, what did you do to resolve it?

Thank you in advance!

How much is it hitting? Tilt it all the way and post a pic.

You can easily adjust the POA by loosening the bracket that supports the POA. Slide the POA to the left as much as possible and secure it in place.

Thanks a ton. I didn't realize I could move it to the left by adjusting the bracket that supports the POA. I'll give that a try tomorrow, and also post a pick of it hitting if the issue persists. Much appreciated!

Is there a lamp on the very right upper playfield inlane?

It appears a red lane cover goes there but I don’t seem to have a lamp socket

I installed one as well, kinda odd it comes this way from the factory

Does it make a big difference once installed? I’d love to see some before/after pix.

One of the first things I added. Easy if you have a spare socket lying around. Couple wires solder in.
It ads just a little light to corner but worth it.

#4425 1 year ago

I tried looking for the correct lamp socket and couldn’t find it anywhere! Still planning to add it at some point

This is the only place I could find an EXACT match to what I have on my machine!

#4428 1 year ago

Yeah that’s the answer I was looking for. Looks like just a daisy chain off the last one

Thanks!

Will this socket work?

Ordering from the other site seems a little complicated

That’s them. They are dirt cheap and 1/48 scale, but they come from China so order a couple as one has Chinese quality and was missing part of the mold. I have a third grey one that looks great, I’m going mess with the lighting to see how that will work, but for $10.77 including shipping for 3, kinda have nothing to lose. 1000% better that the Marcos sponge

#4440 1 year ago

I have that 4D model to....real nice. Do not know what is 4d about it?

#4441 1 year ago

Has anyone installed the ramp decal set sold by Tilt Graphics (https://www.tiltgraphicsinc.com/product-page/indiana-jones-ramp-decals-mod)? If so, could you provide some pics of your machine with them installed? I'm on the fence and would love to see what they look like once installed.

Thanks!

#4442 1 year ago

I’d rather see sweet sweet steel than stickers. That said tho, I have seen at least a picture of the POA bypass lane with the decals, and have to admit it didn’t look bad. At $35 they’re probably worth a try, I just wonder how they wear.

With all of Lior's inbound I passed on the stickers. Game with his mods installed will block most of those decals.

I hear ya, but the decals are significantly less expensive. Those mods look awesome, but I can't afford em.

First of all, that is some amazing work. Good job. Now the bad part. To me, those do not look good at all on the game. They look so out of place. Sorry.

#4446 1 year ago

Thanks! Yeah that looks great on it’s own. I wasn’t sure I was a full Ruins guy, even though they look great. But the POA on its own, got that on my list right after A. Finish putting the machine back together, B. ColorDMD, C. Pinsound. So D? on my list?

Anyway, great mod Lior! Thanks for keeping our machines ever evolving!
