Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:
Before I go to too much effort, other than the couple of us, is there any interest in this? For me, having to remember to remove the bottom bulb every time I lift the playfield (I’ve broken one, scratched top of my backbox, etc.) is enough of a reason to figure out a flush mount solution.
I didn't even know this was an issue.
The flex work/fit fine... it's an easy solution if you want to use the existing sticker, as well. I was going to do clear/semi-opaque inserts with red bulbs behind. That way they are white/clear when not lit. I might replace the holders so I can lower them and use a brighter light (the flex have limited options). One of their quasar bulbs or whatever with like 4 SMD on it could be nice.
I'd probably have to get 100 of each printed if I did it.. that's the place I'm using for the POTC stuff, at least. I am guessing interest is limited, maybe 20 people if that.
I need to find some semi-transparent material anyhow for a window on POTC so the same stuff will probably work for this as well. Now that I found the decal, I might just do that... problem is I only have the left. I don't really want to do just the left, but it might look ok. I guess I could see if there is some other option, like Kinkos or something. The other stickers I am making are for targets so they are heavier duty. The biggest thing would be the die cut so it has the right shape. I don't think I could cut them out to look decent, the rounded corners would get murdered.
