Replacing the rubber rings on my MMr, thinking about a color change to purple urethane rings and purple star posts in the lower playfield, red rings and red star posts in upper playfield. Here is a picture with one sling done......thoughts??

I'm not sure this is really a "mod", but I highly recommend you check/swap out your flipper plungers! I was talking to someone who said "MMr plays like crap, but AFMr plays great" ...I asked why there would be a difference. He told me that CGC accidentally used flipper plungers on some MMRs that were too long...which results in the flipper not flipping as high, which results in weaker/different play. I did notice some weak play when I got mine, but I cranked the flipper strength up to +4 to compensate and never gave it a second thought. Still, I was curious about his claim -so I got some new plungers...and sure enough, when I took my old ones out...they were longer!!! After putting in the new ones, I was able to dial the strength back down to +1 and it plays great!

What was the part number on the replacement flipper plungers you got??

Quoted from AUKraut:

Standard modern B/W ones:

#A-15848-L
#A-15848-R

Apparently CGC had some PPS plungers that were longer but had the same part number, and that's how they got in the game.

I don't know how many games got the longer plungeres. Mine is LE #120, got it in 2015 ...it's possible later run games have the right part...but now it makes sense when I hear some people have played the game and don't think it feels like the original - they had the wrong plunger! With the right plunger, they feel exactly how they should.

What's your game number, and any idea what # range this applies to?

Thanks for the rundown on this. Since they had the same part number, can you tell us how long the "wrong" plungers were? That way we could check our current plungers before actually ordering (and maybe ending up with the same plungers). Thanks!

I wish I had done a side by side before installing, but here are the longer ones. They're just about 2 6/16. The right ones are just a hair shorter. Maybe 5/16 or 4/16. It's minuscule, but enough to affect the distance the flipper travels.

i cutted the complete area with a DREMEL only let 2-3 mm outside to fix the LOGO

#114 36 days ago

I added post lights - i didnt want the lights to effect the line of sight of the ball on the playfield, so they are installed/floating on the bowman's plastic - its a very cool effect and lights up the centre of the playing field nicely.

I also swapped out all the warm leds for comet's sunlight leds: http://www.cometpinball.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=sunlight. These really make the playfield colors pop, Id recommend it to everyone.

Anyone do a coindoor decal here. I've got Toms speaker inserts coming. Just fitted Joes topper and a heap of protectors from Mantis and Cliffy. Coin door just doesn't look right without one. Magnet would be ok as well have one of those on GoTLE. I know Joey does one but his shipping is a killer to Australia.

I've only has my MMR for a few days, but I am interested in losing the green lights on the castle when it blows up. I'm not crazy about the red and green. Doesn't seem totally right IMO unless it's December.

On a quick look it appears the green is lights shining through the green plastic moat. Does anyone make a red one or different colors? I was hoping this was as simple as changing a few LEDs.

Red looks better IMO. Both look good though.

You know, I've thought the same thing....but the green comes from the color of the moat/subway. Maybe a potential mod kit for PPS to run it in different colors??

So fitted a few more mods this last week. Awesome undercab lighting kit as always from Chris @rock914
I have his kits on all my games and just love them. Great mod.

@kapsreiter cool speaker inserts. Had to buy 3 sets as my mates wanted them too

And finally found a coin door decal from topnotch decal on ebay and printed some coin inserts just to finish it off from Rebel
