Just picked up a Dr Dude & was curious to know what you would recommend for Led replacement. I will be replacing all the lights throughout the game including the backglass. I did see a non-ghosting Led Kit on Cointaker that I am considering. So what would you suggest for Dr Dude or any system 11 in general?

What I typically do for sys 11:

Flashers = remain incadescent
Red inserts = red LED
Green inserts = green LED
Everything else = warm white, maybe cool white under specific clear inserts.

I don't recomend kits, you do you.

^^^ What he said ^^^

Warm white for the GI is nice for that era game, but natural or cool white could be nice too depending on your liking.

I'd recommend Comet bulbs over the ones Coin Taker sells. I've had quite a few mismatched bulbs from them in the past. Same bulb from a different lot I guess looked completely different.

Here are Comet 2smd in natural white in our Party Zone to give you an idea.

I used all 2smd cool in mine. I like warm in most games but the cool made it pop a little more. I have stopped using any color LEDs except in very specific cases such as above Gift of Gab.

Warm white all around in bulk.
