New mirrored glass for IJ came in today, looks great, will post more pics when I get it in the pin! I’m pleased with it so far.

Sweet!
How many pin gulps came with it?

#3 1 year ago

Oh, I thought you meant for the REAL IJ.

#4 1 year ago

This is interesting...

#5 1 year ago

Looks good, I’m extremely happy with it. Might have to get one for my TAF and TZ too!

That really looks amazing by any chance do you have a picture of the back of the glass, with mirror?
Thanks

Looks great, just got my Indy one today... can't wait to slap it on!

Scratch that, presently sold out. Presume they'll make more.

#10 1 year ago

Yup... I was clickin' like mad... I do hope they make more.

#11 1 year ago

Boy that sure is sharp. I'd buy one just to hang on the wall next to my Raiders poster.

Damn, double damn. I want another and an Indy! I also hope I didnt miss the boat on this.

#13 1 year ago

My apologies, that is the real IJ. It looked different to me. Where are you getting these?

#14 1 year ago
Quoted from Ricochet:

Me, too!

#15 1 year ago

CPR “had” them, I was going to buy another one but looks like they sold out! I was concerned the lighting would be dim but it’s not, the colors really pop and I think it’s an awesome buy. I hope they run more!

#16 1 year ago

How does it look with the game switched off?

#17 1 year ago

For those asking, here’s pics of game off and back of glass in different natural lighting

Very nice, thank you. How's the artwork resolution up close when compared to an original translite. Does it retain all the detail?

It’s great, colors and lines are great, no bleeding, corners of the glass are even rounded. Don’t mean to sound like a fan boy but this glass really is amazing. I don’t have a single complaint. The packing and shipping was even great! CPR knocked it out of the park with this one, for real.

#21 1 year ago
Quoted from Hdmike444:

How much were they? Very nice

$309 shipped

#22 1 year ago

That's good to hear. My last CPR backglass purchase was their original release for the Playboy glass and it was extremely disappointing. Hopefully with this new process it's a sign of better things to come.

#23 1 year ago

Yeah, I bought and sold Bally Star Trek and Paragon. They were muddy and looked kinda terrible. Others like Solar Fire and Strikes and Spares look amazing. BoP and some others looked more like the Paragon mess than the great ones. Sounds like this may be in the good category. Sorry I missed it since my translite is jacked up.

Do they typically re-run backglasses like this or is it more like their playfields where extra runs are not likely?

#24 1 year ago

No experience with this, so just asking, do you transfer the plastic trim from a translite over to the mirrored back glass to mount it in a game? Asking as I am considering getting one for TAF and AFM.

No, the art work is manufactured onto the glass

So you mount the back glass in place with zero trim or anything on the sides/edges? You take it out of your shipping box and mount it as-is in your game?

Learning is occurring here for me.

Learning is occurring here for me.

Just pull the trim off your old translite and install it on the new glass, or order new trim and install it. Learning is what these forums are all about.

They making more of these?

#29 1 year ago

Super vibrant and nice! Here’s the before:

Damnit!!!
I really want one of these!

#32 1 year ago

They’ll definitely make more they’d be insane not to

#33 1 year ago

So they can make these but have been delayed on playfields due to licensing? Or do i have my information wrong?

#34 1 year ago

Mine had the hologram so def. a licensed asset. Maybe playfield is tougher since more faces?

#35 1 year ago

Just bought a TZ. Emailed them about when IJ will be back in stock.

These make the pins more nostalgic than they already were!

Great job CPR! Fantastic idea!

Anyone ever clearcoat or otherwise protect these backglasses? Hate to get a ding.

Some issue with royalty fees. So taken down on IJ. No eta I guess.

Just be careful. I’ve had plenty with delicate backglass. Never a chipped or broken.

Ok. Sounds good. Just freaks me out to have something rare and delicate. I like coatings!

Cuz we know if we’re rough it’s gonna cost us! Lol. Amazing how careful we are with expensive shit.

#41 1 year ago

Just received my IJ and TZ today. They look great.

#42 1 year ago

I’d like to buy another one for my other IJ I’m restoring if someone would like to sell it to me or trades. Let me know what you are looking for. I do have a fine set of full IJ decals I might trade for a mirrored IJ backglass. Also have a NOS idol and idol release.

I’d cool it a bit. CPR said it’s a royalty fee issue, not a license issue. May be sorted quicker.

Maybe not so fast.
The reason there is no 3-D translite for CFTBL is the crazy high fee for an item like a poster (a translite can be used as a poster).

#45 1 year ago

I'll gladly pay a higher fee for an item like this to exist at all.

#46 1 year ago

Bought one for TZ and love it.
Have an Indy coming home from MGC and was going to order one but am bummed to hear they are currently sold out. Hope they have them available soon.
