Anyone try mirror blades?

#952 40 days ago

Been working on vinyl wrap wood grain look which I thought would look good. Kinda going with the Orca theme on the Premium. Bring the immersion even deeper. This has a real wood grain like feel. Still debating on doing the legs guess I'll have to try one and see how it looks. If not I'll just leave them black. I like this method because it can go back to "stock" easily at any time.

I think it looks pretty sweet. Definitely ups the nautical theme. Would definitely like to see pics when the legs done. If you could find a way to put some strategic barnacles along the wood grain, that would rock!

Looks supercool! Is it a special vinyl wrap for cars or a simple one for furniture or doors you can get on amazon?
Great work!

I was going to powder coat in white like an LE, but you have me really considering going another route like this. It looks pretty sharp. I did see this type of vinyl on Amazon pretty reasonable. I assume you removed the "T" molding to adhere those pieces? Doing the legs may be over kill, but powder coating them in a deep ocean blue may be the ticket.

I did have to remove the tmolding to install.

This is what I used,
Thank you. Patience, scissor, ecaxto knife, scotch tape, heat gun is all I used for install.

Cool thanks for the info!

I’m shocked the sculpt on this fish tank statue came out so good, especially for how small it is. Even has a glossy shine. May need a few paint touch ups, but right out of the box it’s nice… and not expensive. They have bigger sizes, too.

I'm not the designer of this mod but I printed this in clear TPU and my air ball problem on my Jaws Premium is fixed. I used to get balls that would rocket off the chum line to the back right corner of the game. No longer happens. The light show still comes through great as well! Highly recommend the mod.

This could be a new pop bumper topper option. It’s from Jaws 2, but could look pretty cool lit from the light of the bumper from below.

IMG_7561 (resized).jpegIMG_7561 (resized).jpeg
#963 35 days ago

This fits perfectly on the pop bumper. Did some paint and stain touch up (before and after pics). Turned out pretty decent.

Can probably make that Jaws topper pretty easy. Expect a lot of suppliers will improve on it.

#966 32 days ago

I bought a chum line mod from wolffclub on Pinside and hoping someone may have the install instructions or be able to assist with the installation. I have messaged the seller a couple of times but unfortunately they are not replying.

Did anyone else buy this mod and install it successfully?

Thought I would share my custom topper for Jaws. I'm only making 5 of them. 1 already has a home but the other 4 are still available.

I had the rocket city one in my game and swapped it out for this one. It’s pretty easy to install but there are specific instructions that you need to follow so keep trying him

Looks cool, I think without the jaws letters it would look better. Can you do this and how much will it be ?

Yes I can make them without the letters. Just message me.

Thanks very much for your feedback. I didn't get any instructions with mine with is a little frustrating. I have messaged the seller twice over the past few weeks but haven't got a reply. Maybe he didn't see my messages?? Any chance you still have the instructions that came with yours?

Want that LE look with the new addon expression speaker lights? Pick up a set of Jaws LE style speaker inserts. Complete the look of your machine with this easy drop in add on. Check out the photo of them installed on a customers machine.

Looks good. I'd buy one if you made one for the Premium speaker size.

Do you mean the 4” speakers. If so I can work on making one for that size. These are made for the 5.25” speakers

Premium back glass is just not classic Jaws. Don’t like it.

Agree 100 percent. I think this is the same artist who worked on the Rush playfield??

Does anyone know if the official stern speaker light kits will allow us to upgrade the speakers to the 5 1/4 inch speakers? Or are they only compatible with the smaller speakers?

I'd like to get these inserts along with the bigger speakers and the official Stern speaker lights.

In a wait and see pattern at them moment. No time table on their release. My expression lights are on pre order. I already have the 5.25 speaker in my game with Doug’s speaker light kit. I am leaning toward they will allow you to use your 5.25 speakers. If you look at the picture close up from the set on the premium you can see the 4” speakers set back and the expression light rings are up on the front. Appears to be the same set up that an LE has for the 5.25 speakers with a bracket to use the 4” speaker added on and pushed back. My guess is you will have to use the 5.25 inch speaker plate and it will work like the LE. But will know for sure when they start shipping.

Theres nothing wrong with the Rush playfield art.

As a Rush LE owner, I must disagree. The cartoonish painting of the three guys right in the middle of the playfield kind of ruins it for me.

Its the art the band requested and approved. You cant blame the artist for that.

Who says I'm blaming anybody? I just said it sucks.

But speaking of Jaws mods...I'm still waiting on an Orca boat wrap for the prem/LE!

Unfortunately, Neil was deceased at that time and had no input.

Grumpy mrmikeman day:

How to tell everyone you're a Gen Z without saying it:
"I would like to make an announcement to announce that I will be making an announcement in X days/weeks/whatever."

Just make your announcement already. Seriously. Just add the "Will be available to order on XX July 2024". Must be my Gen X DNA but I find these announcement of announcements annoying as hell and they make me actually LESS likely to buy.

#993 19 days ago

with me rapidly closing in on 70 I would be pre gen X thank you... since this is a MOD thread and several have been anticipating this release I would think its appropriate here and to announce that it will be out in a few days.

All good. I agree this is the right the place to announce it'll be available for purchase. I am just questioning the need for a pre-announcement. It's obviously ready to go. So just announce it

I get some younger folks need hype but a clip of the movie isn't hype - the game is full of clips. A picture or video of your mod would hype things way more!

I'm just getting too old I guess. I also don't get the unboxing vids lol. It's cardboard. Get rid of it.

much better way to present that... I will release it on 7/1 when the video is ready, thanks. Besides, that fits the attack date better from the movie.

Looks great. Does this mod obstruct your vision of the ball entering the upper playfield?

I have mirror blades, they look awesome on jaws, though airballs on the right side have made some divots in the mirror ;(
