What are people using for GI in the total lightshow mod? I have a wood backbox non LED. I replaced all the GI with cointaker frosted when I got it. I bought the kit second hand. He already had installed what he said the LED came stock with (2 LED clear lens?). There are a couple down low on the playfield I can see that blast me in the face. That is why I always use frosted for GI. I saw it mentioned elsewhere the newer Cointaker frosted are 2 LED. Maybe I should change out all the GI to the new style? I like the effect of the mod, I don't want to lose the intensity, but I don't like seeing bare bulbs, and I want everything to match. Suggestions?

Quoted from PoMC:

You can build your own set for a fraction of the price of the kit. Just buy the spinners, mark the holes in the playfield and drill. Still have to drill holes with the kit and still need to dremel notches out of the plastics. You might find spinner decals for sale too, not sure, but also easy enough to print your own.

I've been on the fence with this mod as well. Does anyone have a guide or good close up pics?

I'm sure it exists somewhere in this massive thread, but what color have you guys used for Titan rubber? I played a ton of games today because of the new code and decided it's time for the first shop job. Post pics please.

2nd End of the Line since the update. I've been playing it non stop for 2 days. I might dial back the extra balls. Has anyone cashed in the End of the Line? I missed it both games.

Quoted from Graysonsdad:

I'm waiting on an order of purple titans. If I dont like the way the feel I can get black rubber locally anyway. I did a bit of research first and "superbands suck" was a common theme in the threads.

Superbands are not the same as Titans. Some will probably disagree, but the difference from standard rubber to Superbands is enormous. I think the difference between Titans and standard is negligible.

Quoted from Damien:

I just picked up my METLE recently and haven't put many games on it. I got it with 1.57 loaded. Just updated to 1.80 and made it to third CIU for the first time.
Is this new code significantly easier, or slightly?

I'd say significantly. I'll likely lower the max extra balls from factory.

Quoted from yzfguy:

My 14 year old has taken all but one of the high score spots on our Met. Anyone suggest a suitable punishment?

I haven't been playing much lately and starting to question the need for 11 pinball machines. I love it when someone, especially my kids, gets on the leader board. It forces me to play the game to wipe it out, and I always have a great time playing a game I would have otherwise not played. I wish i could get my kids to play more. They are pretty good players.

Quoted from Jimmyhonda:

Does anyone have any extras of the premium/LE plastics that are along both sides of the Playfield they would sell? I need the two plastics where the two spinners are. Thank you!

I'm surprised someone hasn't at least made a printable template so we can cut the Pro plastics. It's what has been holding me back from installing my spinners..

Quoted from Jimmyhonda:

Yup, that’s what I need the premium/LE plastics for. I’m afraid to cut mine.

I just started to replace the rubber on my game and noticed page 165 of the PDF from IPDB has a picture of the LE plastics. I was looking for the rubber chart. I measured the page in Bluebeam, I got 46' 9". 46.75 divided by 8 1/2 (size of a normal piece of paper) got me very close to scale at 5.5 (550% print size). I did some slightly intoxicated research and found 540% to be very close. I will report back with more results....
