    Looks much better.

    That original mustard / bronzeish color sure isn't gold.

    I would still like to see some gold trim around the front of the head, but it looks amazing!

    Looks awesome… shame you spend 8 grand for a remake and then have to spend another grand to make it look good!

    #12 4 years ago

    If you dont mind me asking, how much was it to have that done and were they new parts or did you have to send him your originals?

    Looks great!

    #13 4 years ago

    That's how I originally envisioned the LE (except for coin door). You'll have to let us know how it wears.

    #14 4 years ago

    I thought he wasn't taking on any new work?

    Put MMr in a thread title and TeeKee will come on in crying about something...like clockwork.

    I think you are correct, I talked to him about another project and he declined, just too busy right now.

    Beats $13k for a used up route beater needing everything.....
    (Prior to MMR announcement)

    I know you don't care for remakes, but many do, they can buy them and enjoy. Those that do not enjoy them do not have to make the purchase. PPS is in the business of "remaking" original parts, seems appropriate they offer a game if there is demand, and it seems there is.

    Looks very good, I did not realize the gold powder would be a good option to remove and plate, so I opted for standard trim to be plated, so I could do just that.....real plating.

    This is brass right? Did you do wore forms as well?

    #21 4 years ago

    That looks like a huge pain. You are telling me MMRLE owners have to drill out nails to replace the side rails. I thought Rick said the side rails we're going to be re moved easily. looks like you could scratch up your new pin super easy.

    I recently removed my stainless steel side rails and replaced them with chromed side rails. See the URL below for all the sources that I referenced prior to replacing my side rails.

    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/side-rail-removalinstallation-for-decaled-tz

    I received some good advice from several sources so you will have to make your own judgments as to which method of side rail replacement is the most applicable to your pin.

    It turned out to be simpler than I thought and the end result was no damage was done to either the old stainless side rails which were removed or the cabinet decals.

    Yes, it's polished brass and the wire forms are already brass on the "Gold" L.E.

    The MMr rails don't have any nails, one bolt and one wood screw. The pain is getting the double sided tape that runs the length of it to let go and not damage the cab. I had communicated with Vid about removing mine and he was kind enough to start a thread to address rail removal for everybody and address the various methods used to secure them. The thread was not specific to MMr.

    Looks ok, too flashy for my personal taste, I prefer the powder coat gold, but that's just me! Congrats on getting this awesome machine!

    #26 4 years ago

    Chrome would look sick on a mmr, that gold is dead sexy too, great job!

    I think it's the coin door. If you left it alone the brass wouldn't come off so "blingy"

    Feels like a knitting circle sometimes. Do you guys ever google yourselves with your spare hand?

    #29 4 years ago

    Looks awesome! Not only is Mike a true craftsman he also has excellent customer service.

    Just curious ... do you really use gloves or require the use of them when playing that machine?

    Quoted from Tkaye:

    It would definitely appeal to me more if the coin door was left alone, though I must be forthcoming and admit I am a big fan of the "stock" gold trim, I think it resembles a "pearl" or a "flat" gold from the pictures, but I haven't seen it in person yet to (dis)confirm this, when I look at images of the trim, it just reminds me of the finish on a Les Paul Gold Top, and that finish is damned sexy in my opinion, I know it would look great on MMR, I can't wait to get my game!
