thanks!! i get a lot of "whoooah look at that" comments in person. lol
I don't suppose you had a list of bulbs and locations you would mind sharing?
does that help action?? lol no, i can pm you a quick list off the top my head and send you a video of it via email. give me a day or so hopefully i can load the video to youtube.
Quoted from coasterguy:
I usually go with Cointakers kits and they tweak them to my preference. Chris at cointaker does amazing work when he makes his kits. He does not just throw White in everywhere. He takes his time and color matches them up.
This is what I did with my DE SW and I am very pleased with the results. The personal tweaks I made cost less than $25.
HEy, I know this is an old thread, but I'm new here and was wondering: are the LED kits plug and play or do I need to get out the wire cutters? Thanks!
No wire cutters.
The kits contain the bulbs. Same as changing out a regular incandescent bulb in each socket.
Usually they color match.
Bottom line on kits, they are good if you have 1 or 2 machines and just want someone to do all the homework for you and just get what you need. That is what your paying for, convenience. You are paying for someone else to do all your homework.
But if you own more than a few, its cheaper to just buy in bulk and play around. Don't like the 10 specific bulbs for machine A, machine C looks just fine with them, no waste.
Or if you like researching, see what other have used, crawl through forum posts, read reviews, build long shopping carts full of different bulbs, then stay away from kits.
Quoted from Chitownpinball:
Maybe for some one who has the time to map out each and every LED and match the base type, color, etc.
Like you actually don't have enough time...get real But seriously, for me it's more the bulb type and prices. If you want supers and to have them decide which colors to give you sure it's worth it. I'd rather use frosted as they look better and are cheaper, and I like to make my own decisions on some colors.
CT gave me all frosted premiums for my GI, some were colored, the rest were cool and warm white.
Backbox was my only gripe. After seeing a few other guys, I would have color matched the writing in my T2 box to make it pop, but thats about it. Everything else looked really nice. I did upgrade to premium for the $20 or whatever.
I guess the only suggestion I can give it buy in bulk from everyone ct pbl. If you just buy kits and start adding up the cost of doing all you pins the bill can be as much money as a good dmd pin. I've leded over 20 pins in the last year. For less than half the cost if I bought kits for everyone.
