Quoted from Ricochet:

Did a quick LED test. This machine used to have colored LEDs for the inserts.
I’ve always thought ... yeah I’ll just leave them. Colored LEDs for inserts are fine right?
NOPE! I’m going with sunlights from Cometpinball.
That green just kills the red gradient, yellow and even the black colors of the insert. The last pic is the comet sunlight. It’s a frosted 2SMD. I’m going to try clear and no lens regardless... it looks spectacular! The ADVENTURE inserts need to use the flex bulb... so those will need to be a 1 SMD
For the record I don’t necessarily think that colored LEDs are always bad for inserts... you just need to be aware of the colors of the artwork and LED color choice when making a decision to use LEDs. For example a green LED would do fine on the green inserts of the wings on this playfield... as they are pure green. But for me I won’t mix ... I will keep them all alike.
I’m running these a little under voltage but both LEDs are placed at same distance to the insert. Also since it is at a reduced voltage the 1SMD may actually be better once I’m running at the correct voltage...either way green ain’t it!

I rarely use colored bulbs in inserts. Occasional it works well, but there is a loss in lumens, and gradients or colored artwork on top of insets tend to look washed out or muted. IJ is a perfect example, especially the mode inserts.

Quoted from Ricochet:

The upgraded ball trough from Marcospecialties has fit issue on my machine ... just an FYI. I’ve contacted Marco so they are aware. I understand there are tolerances but right-most machine screws do not align with the holes in the playfield at all... it’s a bummer.

is having the upgraded ball trough worth drilling the playfield underneath the apron?

I sent my subway to Chris at pinballplating.com to be re-chromed. I tried like hell to polish it... no dice.[quoted image]

Plating a subway? That’s next level

Is the rear bracket of the plane fastened to anything?

The guys at Pinball plating posted that they are prototyping brass POA prototype rails. Since you are going all out in this, why not go for that?
