Two words for you on this bad ass mod.

" Hurry Up" Just kidding.

One request , could we ask for some type of number / word or name on the can? If we are in the early stages and you are not mass producing that would be way cool. A small upcharge for a small custom job. Mine will be a number on the can . It will match my serial number....yes I know I am weird.

Cant wait to see this bad boy come to life.

#62 1 year ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

It's possible but just note that I'm making the sticker on a silver foil so that the sticker will have reflective properties which are mass produced. I don't mind adding easter eggs on the can because I'm going all out with the graphics. Like the barcode could be your number since you are the first to ask.



I will be the first one to send you paypal....ahahaha

Between this mod and some others that are in the works I’m gonna spend a small fortune lol.
Excited to be in the first 10 and can’t wait to see the final version!

I feel your pain. HAHA.

What are your top 3 mods you will be buying or already bought?

#139 1 year ago
Quoted from davijc02:

Mezel mods is working on some cool stuff. I like the raptor pit, tower mod, the gate, and I’m stoked to see this moving T-Rex they are allegedly working on.
I’m still very much excited to play a premium version of this game. I think the feature I really want to see is the raptor pit. That seems like it could be a fun toy.
Having said that I couldn’t be more happy with how fun the pro is and plenty of mods will be available to make this thing even more awesome!

I agree, I like all 3. They should do a buy 3 for a nice discount deal.

The Gate is already on it's way to me....yeah yeah...sucker...lol

Back to holding pattern. Unit is 100% but now comes test fitting which can't happen until Sept 20th. Still waiting on UV diodes, alligator clips, molex, wire spool, step down, photoresistor. Hopefully next week will be a big push in the right direction.

I cant wait 23 days man....I need my daily fix. LOL.

Anyway you can visit someone near by to see how it fits, you might be able to sell them one or give them one for allowing you to test it.

Anyways great job so far and it will all come together even if its sept-oct....just excited.

#155 1 year ago

I agree.

Be cool to be able to move it once a year . haha.

#157 1 year ago
Quoted from J85M:

I like bottom left as it’s closest to Nedry or top right

Those are my 2 choices.

Why not 2 cans?? one for each side....different color in the tubes or change the led so they are a tad different.

It's the most important mod-

Quoted from flashinstinct:

Granny is going out of the hospital and back to the residence. Doctors cannot explain the recovery and it seems the antiobiotics given did the trick to close and repair the fissures in her intestines and get rid of the infection. On a sadder note they did find a cancer mass that they cannot operate on the size of a grapefruit so she is still on borrowed time but I WILL FUCKING TAKE IT. The word miracle comes to mind I am so happy of the news.


As you said hopefully she is much more comfy at home with all her items she loves. You, Pets, her own bed, etc etc.

95 and still going................lot's of time to visit her and maybe even take her somewhere nice.

How’s life Modville?

#292 1 year ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

***///DAILY UPDATE///***
I'd like to start by thanking everyone for their patience. I hope these somewhat daily updates are reassuring you that i'm not just sitting on my ass doing nothing. I've been chipping at the block on a daily basis so things are going well. Just not fast but a steady pace.
Over the weekend I managed to solder all led series together. All 450 of them. The beer was good at the end of the session.
I also managed to create 9 of the 31 partial wiring harnesses. I will be focusing my efforts on creating all of these in the next day or so. This portion of the harness goes from CN6 on your power supply board and goes all the way to the relay. This relay will have to be screwed to the underside of the playfied (no worries spacers and screws will be provided). I would have had more done but I really underestimated the amount of wire required (I ran out). I've given everyone a lot of loose so that even if you raise the playfield and do maintenance the wires will not tug on any connection or be tight. There is also a fuse in the circuitry to be even more secure (it will also require a screw if you want to install it, I personally don't like any dangling wires). I recommend just doing a quick pilot hole so that the screw goes in nice and smooth without stressing the wood. If you uncomfortable about that, I'm sure double sided tape for the relay and the fuse could be used.
I've started reprinting the bottom cryo cell to reinforce the location where the underside plate screws into the piece. I've complete 12 of the 45. This should be completed by Wednesday.
This is scheduled for tomorrow. I will make modifications to the print and then send off to the printer hopefully Wednesday. They should arrive by the following week. I have also taken the time to create labels that clearly identify what is what so that no mix up occurs. Expect to see something like the labels in the attached pic attached to some of the wires. This is to prevent accidents from happening.
As soon as the bottom plates are done printing and given a full day to cure I will paint the Mid plate, top plates, bottom cryo cell, bottom plate and can edges together. These will be left to dry for a few days before I even attempt to touch them.
If all goes well and I don't have to reprint the top plate. I hope to start assembly next week. The paint is suppose to arrive this week, if that doesnt happen then everything gets delayed because I have to mix and insert resin in roughly 315 centrifuge tubes and then I have to insert the led arrays in all of them. My plan is to solder the resistors once the leds have settled and the resin has completely cured, trapping the leds inside.
Start printing bracket stands. This is where the EB will come in. I can only print 3/6 of these a day. Which means, I will sending these in batches. I will print them, cure and then painted in small batches everyday. As soon as a bracket is dry and ready to go, it will be packed and shipped.
Again this is all a moving target and goals that I set for myself but I try to push on forward. Again I really appreciate all your patience.

Well hello beautiful 28 harnesses[quoted image]

I only counted 27....get with it brother...haha...

#298 1 year ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

***///DAILY UPDATE///***
- All white rings printed
- All bottom cryo cells are painted
- All main columns are painted
- Finally figured out the problem with the base plate which consumed 3 hours of my life. One thing for sure is that I'll never make that mistake again and the 3d Printing lesson was learned last night. Stupid checkbox.
- put the harness on the back burner until tonight
- one small tweak for graphic testing today and files should leave for printer tonight
Since the cryo cell and the main column are painted (they look awesome), I can now assemble those two pieces and the white ring together. Which means that I will be assembling all of the units lower portions tonight along with the secondary wiring to those leds.


#302 1 year ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

Ran into a problem Thursday where the LED lights were bleeding through the paint and the plastic. While I liked the look I knew it wasn't going to be for everyone. The other problem came when I had to squeeze the LEDs in. While it had never happened in the other test two wires came into contact and we'll.. ....kaboom LEDs. To solve the problem I've had to recreate some parts to a) make it safer for wires not to cross and b) to prevent the light from bleeding through the sides.
Now lights have a plate the point the LEDs on the inside and all wiring is on the outside to the loop. The only connections will be in the middle and at opposing ends preventing any shorts.
I will then cover the exterior of the led solders on the outside with electrical tape. Serves two purposes 1) prevent the light coming from the back of the led to show on the exterior walls and 2) add an extra level of protection.
In other words ....2 Problems solved.

#319 1 year ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

Unfortunately I can only print this part in small batches. The prints start to fail if I add too many pieces. The bottom layers on the outer edges of the print area cool off and don't adhere to the plate. You can loop this and keep yourselves entertained lol

#330 1 year ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

****////DAILY UPDATE////****
- Mid plates painted
- All top plates painted
- Center Columns painted
I still need to put the resin inside the centrifuge tubes, it take roughly 30 hours to cure since adding the paint adds to the hardening time. The bummer about the paint is the supplier never got back to me after making my order. When I called yesterday they told me the stock was backordered and I would need to wait an extra 3 weeks. So I am going with plan B, fluorescent coloured paint with a mix of glow powder with resin. I will pour the new mix tonight to have it all hardened up for Saturday. Which means no video until Saturday.
With that said. The final pieces to make the can are on the printer as we speak. I will need til Saturday to get all the bottom plates done. Painting the final pieces over the weekend.
Which leaves the harnesses that go from the can to the relay (as per instruction sheet). I will start assembly tonight on those. Which means, soldering all resistors to the led series that I have already made. Test each series to make sure everything works. Put the leds inside the lower canister and seal them up. This will be my main focus for the next few days.
Once the final test is done Saturday, I will proceed to pour all the resin in all the units and attach all the leds within the top portion of the can. And if nothing has changed (which should not have), I will start printing the brackets for the Stern version. I can only print 3-6 of these per day. (blaming build volume on SLA printers).
I still haven't shipped things to the printer. Which I hope to do before tomorrow. I'll be honest, it's slacking from my end and entirely my fault. I decided to focus elsewhere and it kinda got off the radar. So I have to get my ass in gear and send this to the printer. It usually takes them about 1.5 weeks to send these back.
Considering all these factors, I'm confident that I will start shipping units the week of Nov4th. If you haven't already, please tell me which version you are intending to buy (Data East or Stern). Also note that I have to head over and drive roughly an hour to get to a DE JP. So while I know some of the DE clients have paid first, i will ask for patience. My main goal is to get these done and after the big wave is over I will have to book some time with my friend to a) find the 12V on the game and b) create a bracket. I apologize for the delay but I only have so much spare time on my hands and I have been dipping alot into family time lately to get this all done.
The end is near[quoted image]

We are almost at the finish line.

Off to the expo brother, have a great weekend.

Quoted from flashinstinct:

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.

#355 1 year ago
Quoted from PBFan:

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.


#357 1 year ago

Hope it doesn't take that long HAHA.

#361 1 year ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

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.

#368 1 year ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

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.

#370 1 year ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

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.

Take off the weekend, have fun, drink that crazy beer you have up there, smile and come back Monday rested and ready .

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.

Quoted from Rydhia:

Mine is broken as well[quoted image]

I think maybe the other poster might have had a good point. Packaging it separately might have helped.

Quoted from flashinstinct:

To all buyers. yelobird was kind enough to offer an olive branch. Long story short, everyone will receive a new bracket shipped directly from the states using a much stronger material. What does this mean for you? It means everyone will receive a bracket in the next two weeks or so.
I won't lie, I've been stressing for the last week trying to find ways to accelerate the process so everyone can enjoy their mod.
This is the best answer.
Have a great weekend.

Love It!!!

I’m sure that could be arranged when they are done.


I love your mods by the way. I have about 7 items in my cart for my new PIN.

Guess the delivery to texas has issues. Mine was picked up on the 17th and paid for 4 day and now it's the 23rd and no news. Looking at 7 days or more.

Let hope the delay is because mine is hand driven down from Canada and it will not be in pieces. HAHA.

I am only going to shave once it's in machine..

I got a email saying my delivery is here....I run to the door....woohoo....excited since I was expecting Monday.

I didn't have to open box and already knew it was broken. Dang!!!

I was thinking take off the bracket that's left on the can and use sticky tape and place it on plastic, you will still see the lights.

Anyone thought to do that, will be all snug back there and safe.

Quoted from Yelobird:

Brackets are Complete. Ran them 24/7 all weekend to get all those beautiful shaving cans hung by the Xmas tree for the holidays. Paint process starts tomorrow morning with Hopes (not promises....) to get ALL of these sent out this week if I can cure the paint properly in time so they ship unmarred.

Thanks for stepping in. We can wait a little longer.

Quoted from timlah79:

Even though my bracket is also broken and the post office had all kinds of mix-ups getting the package to me (which I can confidently say is the primary reason it's broken), I'm not one bit upset. Why? Cause this is a beautiful work of art, from attention to detail on the piece itself, to its packaging and instructions. I'm beyond impressed and I haven't even seen it light up yet!

Let's have a light party before bracket arrives. I think I will got power it up and then leave it in cabinet till bracket arrives...or maybe use tape for tonight and place it. Who's in?

Safe and Sound at home with eggnog ....life is good.

Hi All,

Back from my biz trip.

1) Running the wires thru the hole - Simple - Running wires down bracket-Simple
2) Mounting Can- Simple
3) Drilling holes, I used my own screws as I didn't have a small tool for your type you sent. - Simple
4) Getting wires into holes on board- 6 times did it...if I had a solder gun it would have been quick.
5) Finding CN-6, - Simple. Powered this baby up -Simple

6) Ran the sensor to nearby option. Not working.

As the sensor wire is not to long, what would be a option B?

Thanks for the assistance.

Quoted from flashinstinct:

You have to use a screwdriver to change the sensitivity of the sensor on the relay board.

Where did you place the flasher?? if you have a picture that would be great.. Since I have power I think it's all correct.

Will go try the board now.

Quoted from flashinstinct:

Placed it almost in the center of the playfield. I'll try to take a picture tomorrow

I placed mine bottom right so I cant seem to find a good source.

#559 1 year ago


Thanks so much for your help tonight. I was a dummy and missed a loop...DOH.

My Can is popping now....

#560 1 year ago

One last question.

If I adjust the sensitivity will that make it go off less / more? Where I placed it for now it's going off almost constantly. I think I need to more it to a area where it's not so frequent unless that's what the sensitivity is for.

Thanks again...wonderful MOD. It's almost my fav....I think the goat is the winner...LOL. NOT!!!! My wife hates that damn goat. Guess I will be taking it out and having a bar b cue later.

Quoted from DarthSinex:

UK early adopter here. Received my Barbasol can and replacement bracket from the US and Canada before I actually received my JP premium which finally arrived yesterday. Spent about 45 minutes replacing the bracket and then wiring it all up. Works like a dream. Very clever bit of kit. Followed this thread from day one and got in early. Glad I did. Great mod which is neck and neck with the chest opening mod on POTC for mod of the year. Brilliant to have such creative people in this hobby. Kudos to flashinstinct and hope you'll have more riocha now it's night of the working mods as there was for night of the broken brackets.

I agree 1000%.

We need him now to start on his next creation and stop counting all that money...HAHA.

Going to give him a nice feedback now.
