Quoted from harryhoudini:

Ohhhh... Light brown is unpainted. They are all being painted to match the Pearl.

Damn! I wanted mine in the baby poo brown!!

#252 14 days ago

Haha, yea I had to use a filament that wasn’t too dark since we were painting it. Figured brown was the closest. The painted colour is a blend of dark brown and blue. Might throw in a spec of silver too. Painting them all today!

Decals are getting installed. The off-center JJP decals are killing me. I am going to remove them and re-apply.

I am going to get those BONUS X decals printed next, I think those are the last ones. Depending on cost I might be able to include those with everyone who already bought a set.

Got the wife hard at work on your window mods. She's on the soldering team now while listening to Brian Cox podcasts. 0702191854 (resized).jpg

The ladies do like Brian.

For all those that want a laugh listen to poor Brian try to explain human impact on Climate Change to one of Australia’s smartest politicians.

Well, thanks to my wife we pretty much have everything put together. When the windows arrive at my house (should be any day) we just need to install the "glass" and put in the LEDs. Depending on what else you ordered we'll start shipping out. Full width galaxy plastics should be here around the same time so those can ship out and decals are all here and ready. You'll get a tracking number when we ship and we'll be going in order as long as we have everything to ship to you.

For those of you who ordered a white LED on "spec" alone, here you go! You get a unique glass color (white/blue tint with some sparkle) and I'm going to include an extra piece of glass so you have the option to double it up. The white LEDs are HELLA brighter than the yellow. The whites are also getting a bit of frosting on the bulb to diffuse it a bit. They are probably double, if not more, the brightness of the yellows.

Btw... the mods are here!! geteos did an awesome job. My wife is going to be cutting up the glass and installing them tomorrow and packaging them up. We'll be shipping with other mods/orders so trying to put your orders together if we can. I believe almost everything will be here tomorrow (plastics, apron art, etc). So you should start getting shipping notifications within the next few days!

That looks really nice! Thank you for working on this.

Honestly it looks even better than I expected.

You're the man HH! Excellent work to you, your partner, and your wife!

Can't wait to see all these doors installed in everyones' games!

Props to harryhoudini and his wife for final assembly on this mod, glad I could contribute to this!

#265 6 days ago

Can't wait to get mine!

#266 6 days ago

As if we didn't have enough going on we're launching a new store. Real domain name, real shopping cart. I was too short sighted in trying to keep this simple... should have known as a programmer. Looking to partner with other mod developers who need a place to sell online. We can handle all aspects of mod development to warehousing, drop shipping, etc. I have another online retail business so most of these processes are already in place.

Could this be yours?

Pssst...it could only be yours if you ordered white

#268 2 days ago

Ordered, picked the yellow though

#269 2 days ago

Expect a shipping notice soon!

#270 1 day ago

I too ordered yellow, 3 weeks ago... anxiously waiting for notice.
Very cool mod indeed!

#271 1 day ago

We just got done packing 10 up for shipment tomorrow. Shipping most of them this week!

One thing I noticed with removing the black pearl and reinstalling is the JJP supplied opto shield really made it tricky to get the black pearl back on. The VUK was digging into it. Have you been able to remove the pearl and reinstall with this new mod?

It's much easier to remove the VUK (three screws) and then remove the BP.

#274 1 day ago

Yup, remove vuk first. If not you can just pull the mod off, it has a plug above the playfield. Comes off in minutes.

Also better than digging into those wires...

But yeah, the VUK removal is amazing! Wish I knew about it the first two times I removed the Pearl.

Ok thanks. Not sure how to reach those 3 screws. Pearl seems to be in the way. Will try this next time.

Thanks for the advice.

Just a longer shafted screwdriver would work wonders. It's ultimately far easier than realigning the BP ramp. That's a pain.

First you get yourself a gyroscopic electric screwdriver:
amazon.com link »

Then you get a nice extension
amazon.com link »

Then you get some magnetic bits
amazon.com link »

And a magnetic addon for your sockets
amazon.com link »

Some socket adapters
amazon.com link »

Magnetic phillips
amazon.com link »

And might as well get a magnetizer
amazon.com link »

I assume you have sockets...

That should just about do it.

Wow. Lots of good stuff. Thanks Harry. I just use hand for everything on pinball. Got a socket set with extensions, but not the magnetised sockets. Also got magnetised manual screwdriver set. I use my electric screwdriver for creating havoc elsewhere around the house. I think I will get the magnetic bits and the addon for the sockets. Thanks for sharing.

#280 1 day ago

Most of that is stuff I have. I keep getting more because I'm tired of dropping hard to reach fasteners, cobbling together various adapters to make stuff work, etc. After dealing with the Castle playfield on WOZ and the VUK on the BP it's good to have various magnetic stuff and long stuff. And my arms are messed up from typing for 30 years so the electric is awesome. My go to Dewalt eletric impact driver was just a bit too powerful for this stuff. Also I keep taking stuff apart and putting it back together... over and over.
