Just figure I would share a few pics of my Metallica Road Case which I have had for a couple of years.
Really like the game and with the new code it is even better.

They are nice but I focus more on the playfield than the DMD so I do not care that much for the DMD to justify the cost.

Quoted from Dee-Bow:

If u can justify the cost of a custom shooter rod & sparky.... u should be able to justify a color dmd! Definitely worth it on MET

They were on the game when I bought it.

Quoted from t2:

New to the Met Pro club. Curious to what a stock from the factory Met Pro looked like? Any pics or brochures out there I can use to compare against mine. Would like to know what was added.

Available as pdf.

Quoted from ED-209:

Thanks for the help and it’s weird as it seems like it’s split 50/50, some people say stock is fine and upgrading speakers won’t really help with the newer Sterns while others say they are cheap paper speakers and it would help a lot putting in new speakers.

Flipper Fidelity speakers makes a hugh different to stock speakers.
I have them in my MET Premium and they sound very good.
I also have a stand alone sub in another game but to me the Flipper Fidelty is better.

I can imagine that

Could be an air ball that has hit and bent the diode on one of the switches causing a short.

Quoted from Sparky:

Congrats! But your delivery guy didn't notice the "TRUCK THIS SIDE ONLY" on the side of the box? Luckily the game survived!

Probably more didn't care than didn't notice

Quoted from finnflash:

Cause it's a belt buckle on a pinball machine.

There are plenty of mods out there which are way worse if you ask me.

Quoted from WizardsCastle:

I did forget to mention that when I raised the pitch, I also cleaned and waxed the pf.
I had no idea waxing could cause bricking on the targets, so i attributed it to the pitch.
I still think the targets should drop on contact, am I right? Is it time to adjust spring tension?
Do I just cut the springs shorter?

When the game plays fast, sometimes the drop targets bounce back to the resting position after a hit before the spring as had a chance to pull it down.

Not pinball related but Metallica related.
Last week my son, girlfriend and I went to see Metallica in Gothenburg together with 64000 other people.
It was epic!

Quoted from KYLEDM5:

What do you chaps think about Cliffy vs Mantis in regards to protecting the mystery hole?
It seems like there's a trade off. Cliffy offers better protection, but as usual, it will somewhat affect the ball's travel and get worse over time.
The Mantis looks like it wouldn't affect the ball at all, but it doesn't protect the rim of the hole.
Anyone have long term/hard use with either one? Pics?

Cliffy all day long. Protect the part of the hole that gets worn. Which is the whole point.

Quoted from Sako-TRG:

Where can you buy a good Met shooter rod?
Also, some good flipper bat covers - Metallica themed of course

I use the bat from Scared Stiff in my MET.

Quoted from Rickwh:

I think the two holes are supposed to have rubber stoppers cause that corresponds to where the head rests on the cab side rails.

and the playfield when you raise it against the back box.
