After putting the FEP film back on, I was rewarded with two misprints again because the print was sticking the the FEP. Had to drain the tank had zero the z, tighten everything. Also Adjusted exposure time for the bottom layers. Day wasted ut I got two perfect prints of the brackets overnight so we are back at printing brackets. Brackets 9&10 are printing. 11&12 tonight. It's going slowly but at least in a forward direction. Tonight I will glue and print the light blocker at the top. So all caps should be assembled tonight. At least that will be done. After I pour the resin in the next day or so I will be taking some time off this project to get ready for my yearly Halloween party. Takes me roughly 7 days to get shit together. Since stickers are not arriving until the 31st or 1st there is nothing much else I can do.

Slowly getting there.

#352 19 days ago

Not much to share - Stickers are finished and on their way. New light blocker plates have been printed for the top of the can. Bracket 15&16 are printing. 17&18 on cue for tonight. Resin is being poured soon. Full assembly starts Nov 3rd. I will start contacting buyers as soon as the first units are finished to arrange shipping payments. Cue for launch.

I am not shaving until my CAN arrives.

I don't own a JP but this thread really does highlight all the work that some of the modders put into their products and explains the sometimes perceived high costs for such mods. Preparing mods in such small batches in your garage/basement without industrial scale tooling is not going to make anyone rich. Thank goodness we have such awesome folks in the hobby that are willing to take the time and dedication to do this.

Great job.

Hope it doesn't take that long HAHA.

#358 17 days ago

Missed the delivery guy today. Picking up stickers Monday. Brackets up to 30 should be done by Monday. Things are looking good.

#359 16 days ago

Had time to print the little sensor wire holders today between the brackets. I will start sending out PM's this upcoming week

#360 15 days ago

All brackets are printed. Tonight is paint time. It's official, all Stern parts are printed. With that said, I am prepping for my yearly Halloween party for the next few days. Waiting to receive roughly 60 people this upcoming Saturday. I won't have time to ship this week or even assemble but at least you know that your parts are ready to put together. The only thing I will be doing this week is putting the stickers on the cans and pouring the resin. My JP already has the mod installed, it will be put to the test Saturday as guests will put around 60 - 100 plays on the game.

/////***IMPORTANT FOR BUYERS****/////
REFUNDS - at this point I will give you the rest of the week to get a refund. If you are not satisfied with what you have seen so far I will give everyone the opportunity to get their money back.

Think about options where to place the CAN. I am ordering one but cant use it on the left side. Any ideas would be great while your in test mode.

If you can send some pics of it in other areas would be awesome.

Thanks again for the detailed work.

You mean right side and not left, correct? The wiring as been set up to be placed on the right side (the location in the video). The only other location the can fits without another custom bracket of some sort is above (close) to the control room insert. The DE version hasn't even been placed yet but I'm really eyeing to top right corner of the game. Sizing will determine the location on DE.

If this is not what you mean you can always PM me.

#363 15 days ago

Boom. All bypass stickers have been applied to the first set of wires. Can test reveals that itès 100% spot on!

More delays stay tuned. I'll have an answer tomorrow from the sticker manufacturer.

#367 13 days ago

UPDATE: Last night I noticed that the lines on the can were dashedÉÉ upon further inspection i realized that the print was low-res. The print shop printed the thumnail version of the image instead of the high res. Long story short. I won't compromise on quality. So...back to printer...and now have to wait for the new stickers to arrive. Sorry for the delay.

Believe me arguing with a printer that's trying to pass a quick one on you is just more aggravating then anything. I feel exactly like that picture. I could have just said "ah fuck it".....but I told myself 'Would I be happy with this"......the answer was "no". Then the choice is obvious. I will be logging off for the next few days to finish off Halloween party preps. Back to work on this Monday. At least by the time the stickers come back everything will be ready for assembly.

Since I've taken a systematic approach to this, everyone that has a Stern game will pretty much receive all of their mods at the same time.

Roughly 60 people showed up. Last person left at 2h30 in the morning. Took me 9 hours to take all the decorations down. And I'm getting bombarded with pictures of things I did that I don't remember doing LOL. The good news out of all of this is that the pinball was payed 126 times, the mod was never touched and worked flawlessly all night. I can't say the same thing for my brain the next morning.

Didn’t have time for resin. But did pick up the stickers and installed them. They look black on the image but can assure you it’s just the light.

Take a look at the following document. If you don't see your pinside username listed in this list (I either haven't received your payment or something has gone amok).

Resin has fully cured. Tonight I need to start soldering all those puppies up. Painting of brackets will also happen tonight. I will also try to assemble at least one full product so I can fin tune my method for the upcoming long weekend in Canada. This will give me 3 full days to complete orders. Which I do believe is obtainable since everything is ready to do the entire assembly.

#388 5 days ago

All soldered up. I wish I could paint but my wife went to her mom's house for 2 minutes (an hour ago) and I'm still waiting to go get the paint.

Base coat on. Went with dark bronze on this one. Need a second pass tomorrow once dry. Done for the day. Will attempt first product assembly tomorrow (mine doesn't count).

This postman will be a tad late. But at least day one is fully done. All top portions have been wired. Tomorrow, starting lower portion. Which means that has of tomorrow I will have finished units. Monday will be packing and labeling day.
