Just moved my Newley restored WH2O into the lineup. I noticed there was something different :impressed:All the other games have button restorations like the WH2O albeit 10 years ago. Off to Comet pick me up some more brightness...

Wow your blowing my mind

At least you still have a mind to blow. Seriously dude, don't get blinded by the light. It was't that bad before, was it?

My only advice is invest in some of that clear glass, which you may already have before you make any rash decisions and then go from there.

The LEDs wash out the artwork on the Translite

They also wash out the cornelius from the eyeball.

Cameras with default settings don't always do a very good job at capturing a game with LEDs.

As long as you just use white LEDs and not try to color-coordinate it, it should look fine. I usually use natural white (which is really more of a cool white) to help offset some of the yellowing of the translite (rather than warm white or sunlight LEDs).

Thats what I thought that song was always saying and I can never hear anything different even though I looked up the real lyrics to see why he was singing about a Douche.

Correct translite looks great no washout. The only color LED or SMD’s I used were the ice blue in the whirlpool, behind the “RIVER” targets and around Bigfoot. All others including inserts and GI I use 2SMD 2835 bulbs Fosted Warm White. I find this to be a pleasing combination.

The photos definitely do not do it justice.
