I'm hunting for a replacement translite for #HS2. I noticed that CPR is making backglasses, but they are a bit pricey for what is just a player's machine. Has Planetary Pinball quit making translites?

Is there a source of repro translites for B/W games at this point?

I would guess that if repro backglasses are available fo a game that originally came with a backglass, it’s going to be hard to find someone also making translights. If you can find a decent quality scan, might be cheapest to just make your own (there are a number of threads documenting where and how to get them printed).

Actually, I was thinking of games that originally came with translites. CPR is making backglasses for the late 90s games, but that’s not really Authentic to the games. (But I might grab one to try on my TZ)

the CPR HS II backglass has received bad reviews

CPR does not make translites. They said they cannot print on that type of material.

Gotcha, for some reason I was thinking HSII had a backglass originally. Still, might be worth poking around for scans though.

I've made a few translites recently, not this title however. Need scans of an original to work from though.
