Im hoping that the Road Cases are getting built soon..
Quoted from Rickwh:
Im not crazy about the speaker panel being the monster art work on a road case machine. Should get roadcase style art there.
I absolutely agree..
Bad enough the Translite isn't the greatest, now they slap on a Monsters Speaker panel that doesn't match the RC cabinet art. I don't understand why they just didn't leave it black like on the original run. Im really hoping someone comes out with a Speaker Panel overlay to better match the Road Case cabinet art, because the way it is now is definitely not working.
I was told by my distributor a few days ago "It should be soon" . Not sure if that means this week, next week or next month.. I know its going to be worth the wait but this waiting crap really blows!
Quoted from Leachdude:
Finally in the Premium club. Someone needs to make a speaker panel for the road case, and the DD version just does not look right.
Congrats.. Still waiting on mine to ship.
I contacted Pingraffix a few weeks ago asking if they could come up with a speaker panel overlay that better matches the Road Case Cabinet art. I haven't heard anything back yet, but hoping they will eventually come up with something to replace the DD speaker artwork that the Road Case currently ships with.
Quoted from Aurich:
Hammer stuff is on my list to look into.
I'm working on the decal today. Needed a little mental break from Alien, and it's a quick self-contained project. I'm going to attempt to make both styles, wood and metal panel. See how that goes.
Excellent! Sounds like a good plan to me.
After a few long months my Met Road Case has finally arrived!
I'm glad I was able to get in on this run. I was told that Stern is only making a small run of 250 Road Cases this time around. Now time to unbox and add the pile of Mods that have been waiting to be installed. Unfortunately I still have not received my Stern Shaker motors I ordered from Stern during their Fall Sale. Hopefully they will arrive soon.
I also ordered a set of Metallica Premium/Pro stickers so that I can replace the Epilepsy warning stickers that come installed on the new Pins. I have three choices to choose from. Not sure which one to go with yet.
Ok. i'll put the Pro sticker to the side. Thanks. Now that makes my choice a bit easier.
Thats great news because I just removed the DD Road Case speaker decal and discovered that the decal covers 3 holes above the DMD and lots of spot weld dimples. Doesnt look too horrible but the holes definately need to be covered.
