Item description

On Metallica the upper lane lights are at the bottom of the lanes. This is a problem made worse by the popular snake body mod which makes these lights very difficult to see. I've seen mirrors placed in front of the curve at the back of the right ramp but I've always thought there should be a better way to make these lights visible and fit the theme of the game. I made some small light up skulls that fit in the curve of the ramp and light up with the lane lights. I also made some for the lower lanes that cover the spot lights. They are easy to install with a screw driver or 1/4" nut driver being the only tool required, the regular lane lights continue to work. Right now the mod connects using the bulb sockets on the Met pro but if there is interest I may later make a version that works on the prem/LE.

- Shipping within the US is included.
- I think they look good in red. I will do custom colors for $10 extra.
- If you only want the upper 2 or bottom 3 skulls I will sell them for $50 including shipping.
- International shipping is $10 extra.

If interested send an email ( [email address removed] ) or PM me. I will send you an invoice via PayPal when it is ready to ship.

Looks good. Just red in stock color? I don't have the snake mod issue but these look cool. What r they made of, and is skull different color or just bulb? Thanks.

The skulls are always the same color (essentially white with black details like real skulls) and will look the same when unlit. I couldn't get a single LED inside to look right as there were issues getting it bright enough with even illumination. So each one has multiple LEDs/SMDs on a strip inside. The possible LED colors would be red, white, yellow, blue, green, cyan, pink, purple, and orange. I'm not sure if the orange/yellow ones would be bright enough.
