My CPR is off - but it's MORE accurate than my stock field. It .. dosen't bother me as much.

Decals are shipped, and apparently FedEx is taking their f*cking time. Will keep everyone updated once they're delivered.

#152 57 days ago

Weird, my OG looks centered left to right.

#153 54 days ago

Honestly everyone has been playing Meteor for 41 years with the post the way it is. Changing it now would almost feel weird.

I have a USPS package in limbo at the moment, it has not moved in shipping for 20 days, not happy.

#155 47 days ago

Yeah, it hasn't moved from Philly.
I sent the printer an email Saturday, and will call them Tuesday when they open up, and see if they can either (1) Contact FedEx, or (2) send me another order.

I have a PF waiting on these, as do you guys.

Quoted from woz:

Yes, that centre post mis-alignment is bugging me too (more so than the missing text!). I was considering plugging and redrilling the CPR repro but that decision is still a few weeks away as I'm in the middle of a Black Hole pf swap.

I did that to their Black Knight playfield.
I did not like the position they put the hole for the spinner mini post.

A few pics with the Reese Rails.

NICE!!

#159 44 days ago

Am going to hear from the printer tomorrow - am expecting them to send me a second order to make up for the order that.. apparently Philly really likes.

#160 43 days ago

Update. Good news, bad news.

I am no longer a fan of this publisher. (This is not the ALPS printer that I was originally going to work with.)

Called them up, and was sent to VM. Left a message. Since it's been a month since I paid, and the item is (obviously) lost in FedEx land, I sent them another email, pretty much saying, "Okay, send another batch."

They refused. So, I'm filing a chargeback with my CC company for this.

I also just placed an order with another company I found online that had specs on their printer that was pretty nice and would do the job. Will keep everyone updated.

#161 43 days ago

Good for you! Sounds like they are a bunch of jerks.

#162 43 days ago

Whohoo. Just heard back from this new company, files were in the perfect format, and so I should be getting them next week.

#163 39 days ago

Decals arrived. Will be contacting people for payment. Once I'm out of this tele-meeting, will snap some pics.

#164 39 days ago

I’d love to see pics of these installed once they come in!

#165 38 days ago

I crashed last night before uploading the pics. D'oh.
White on clear. The light blue in the images are the backing to the decals.

Will start replying to PMs today, asking for addresses and give info on shipping charges. Will be doing a handful at a time, so I can keep track of everything. Idf you don't hear from me today, wait. May be tomorrow, may be Friday. You'll hear. ... Unless you never told me you wanted a set, of course.

#166 38 days ago

Thanks for doing this, coyote. There will be a lot more excellent Meteors out there for it.

#167 37 days ago

Second batch of notifications went out.

When they ship, I will forward tracking number. I HOPE to get as many out Saturday as I can. However, depending on when I get payment, and when I run out of envelopes. (More are ordered on the way.)

#168 36 days ago

Okay, if you got a tracking number from me as of this post now, then your envelope went out today. Most folks should get theirs Monday or Tuesday - those that live on the opposite side of the country from me may take until Wednesday.

#169 35 days ago

So, what's the recommended method for applying these? Should we slap em on, then clear coat over them? Should the area under the decals be lightly sanded first, to promote adhesion? Or are they durable and thin enough that we can just stick em down and play?

#170 35 days ago

these are standard waterslide decals. AFAIK, they can go on smooth surfaces, but will need to be protected once applied. (Cleared over at best, mylar may work..)

This video was refereced to me when I had placed the order:

#171 32 days ago

Okay, as of today, all decals are sent out, save for a few people that either contacted me after I placed the order, or added to their quantity. I will go through in the order in which I was contacted until I have none left. (Either no decals, or no more people.)

It looks like that for the Rocket DT Text, I may run out. For the METEOR Scores, I will have some extras.

I had mentioned earlier that there had looked to be a price difference - unfortunately, with the shipping issue with the original printer, and the new printer steppin g up and getting them out in record time, that price difference is *negligible* - cents on the dollar. (By my calculation, it looks like that everyone would get back 4.3 cents per SCORE, and 10.3 cents per Rocket DT Text. Unless you honestly want this back, I will donate this overage to Pinside once the last of the orders are out.

#172 24 days ago

Has anyone applied their decals from Coyote yet? I haven't had time, but would love to see some pictures.

#173 23 days ago

I would like to see too!

I'm currently in the works of ordering more of the Rocket DT Text decals - if anyone wants some, let me know.

So far, so good!! You can juuuuust see the edge of the 6000 decal. I cut them with scissors as recommended. I left some room on the top of the 6000, but I cut the 2000 very close to the ink, so that may hide the edge a bit better. Hoping the edges will be completely invisible after the clear coat. The yellow arrows really help to align each decal. Big thanks to coyote !

#175 13 days ago

Hopefully will be giving my re-painted original and the CPR repro a new clear coat tomorrow. The trouble is finding a full face respirator. Everywhere around here is sold out on account of covid.

#176 13 days ago

Quick and easy. I also made sure to wipe each landing area with naptha before applying the decal. I didn't need microset or anything. Just a q-tip, water, gentle tweezers. The decals are quite forgiving. A little finnicky to get placed just right because of how easily they slide around, but it just requires an ounce of patience. Now if only there was a decal that brought the detail back to the explosion above the spinner :p

Thanks CPR

No time like the present to invest in that supplied air kit that you've always wanted.

#179 12 days ago

Im on the fence about getting a CPR repo because of the mistakes. That, plus the need to re-clear it! But those decals do look awesome. If I decided to buy a PF are there any decals left?

Quoted from semicolin:

I ordered a full face for a bit over $100. Going to use that in a well ventilated area. I'm going to test to make sure the mask seals well around my face; if its not a perfect seal, ill get the hardware to convert it to supplied air. Thinking i may be able to just use my airbrush compressor to supply the air haha.

#181 11 days ago

Welp, my airbrush compressor doesn't produce enough CFM to act as a supplied air pump. I was considering making my own supplied air system by pumping air into my mask from a larger compressor, but to do that safely, the compressor has to be oilless, (i guess even with oil traps, some amount of oil gets through?) and oilless compressors have pretty low CFM, so it may not work well anyway. Plus those small compressors are just about useless. Anyway, i found a supplied air system that uses a squirrel cage blower on ebay for $200. Should be here in 13 days. Not excited about the wait. The portable pumps that painters use are either super expensive, or would take a month to arrive.

I have a few more of the SCORE decals available.

I am considering ordering another sheet of the Rocket DT Text. WOuld like two or more people contact me and waiting before I do, though, because otherwise I just threw money away.

#183 10 days ago

Well, while I had the original playfield stripped, I decided to make some insert modifications, but it turns out that meteor uses 7/8" inserts which are absolutely impossible to find. Guess it's staying the way it is.

Anoter follow-up.
I am going to be having another sheet of the Rocket DT Text decals. If you want one, please let me know.

Print an extra and ship it to CPR since they can't figure out how to fix it.

They wouldn't pay me. And if roles were reversed, they wouldn't do that for me.

If roles were reversed it wouldn't have happened in the first place.
