Anyone install mirror blades on his jp pro...wonder what would be the effect
Quoted from JediMcMuffin:
Checking in! My upper flipper post finally worked its way loose again (despite blue loctite).
So I took the opportunity to put the post replacement kit in. While the post was out, I did also mask off the post area, do some light sanding and apply some clearcoat. This was my first time messing with any of the mechanisms, as you have to remove the flipper assembly to get the old pieces out and tighten the post from both sides of the playfield. I wish I had taken a picture underneath, because the nut did not clear the flipper's assembly and I was forced to use a pair of wrenches to flair out the bracket slightly so it would clear the new lock-nut that holds the post in place. The washer on top is considerably taller and wider, and covered up nearly ever bit of the chipping that I had encountered. I'm satisfied, if not still slightly annoyed that I had to do this on a new product at all. I suppose I could have pressed on my distributor to do this as well. I did inspect all the other holes on the playfield for any kind of chipping and it appears I've gotten lucky with every other spot. I did notice that there is some dimpling across the playfield, but I don't know what "normal" wear is in my head so I can only assume it is normal. I'll attempt to capture a picture of it.[quoted image]
So the new post, does it change the game play? Go for the shaker motor and let the magic happened
