    I see your pink nightmare and raise you this pink nightmare. Found a great topper for it as well.

    The Tron looks sweet. I might agree on EM's, but even that pink one doesn't look bad.

    Like i said, I guarantee you they'd have done this years ago if if cost wasn't an issue. Well, maybe not because the majority of these things were in bars and arcades where it would get beaten and the pain chipped off, but for home use, you see that it is happening.

    Also, that AFM is the remake right that came with the green?

    Don't like it don't read it. Whom the fuck are you to tell people what to post? He never said they couldn't do it, just that they look like shit, which they do.
    Or are you a ray of sunshine now?

    Three things:
    It's Who not Whom.

    Perhaps you need to stop being a troll Odin. Good lord. I never made comments about other people's powder coating. I simply asked for advice.
    That's pretty scary. Time to crawl back in your hole doing more research on the old interweb. Lol.

    #112 4 months ago

    Sorry ThE Law, I didn't finish.
    Second: I personally try not to talk sh*t about other people's powder coating but I'm certainly not perfect. I'm not telling you what to say, by all means if you want to say things look like sh*t, go for it. I just don't think it's very nice.
    Third: I appreciate you calling me a ray of sunshine. I'll take that as a compliment!

    Quoted from Palmer:

    Haha. I’m not a fan of powder coating at all. Especially when the coin door matches the legs and the rails. I do like my hobbit though. It’s subtle.

    Quoted from kcZ:

    Agree... Coin door matching the legs is just awful in every version.

    Oh well. So much for visiting my gameroom then.

    #118 4 months ago

    I think if someone powdercoats their machine, then as long as they like it, why the fuss?

    Everything in life now is about modding and custom.

    So to each their own. Say something nice, or don’t say anything.

    Plus, similar to speakers, I think powdercoat is “relative” to what the owner likes. May not be for everyone, but hey it’s their machine, do with it what you will!!

    Quoted from Travish:

    I kind of like my coin doors and legs to match. Maybe it's just me judging by this thread.
    [quoted image]

    No, I agree. Especially from factory. They usually don’t do the coin door to save money, but dammit. Do the coin door too if you are going to do the legs and rails. ☺️

    I actually thought that Tron was one of the best looking ones in this thread, but i'm not known for my good taste or savvy stylings.

    #123 4 months ago

    Its funny , I like most of the Powder coating jobs here. Sure a few of them are a little ridiculous, like the tri-color Simpsons, but who cares. I am a little confused ?? If I see a powdercoat job I like, do I upvote OR downvote the pic. Am I agreeing that I like , the dislike in this thread?? Red on a monopoly looks great, not everything looks good in Stainless Steel Or Black. Matching some basic colors in the artwork seems like the norm, what else would you suggest....lemme guess black or stainless, gimmee a break. Even the factory green trim on AFMle is getting banged, why ?

    Someone needs to start a thread showing the most radioactive pin pics. I'm not sure why some feel the need to make every square inch of their game glow with LED's. I agree, you can do anything you want to your own game....just don't ask for my opinion. The same goes for some of these color choices for trim.

    #127 4 months ago

    The Williams games look odd to me when you don't paint the edge of the backbox to match the powder coating, or on the Stern's when the T-molding isn't swapped out to match.

    I'm not big on it, but some of them shown are nicely done. Some.....not so much.

    #128 4 months ago

    I say do what you want it's your game but also don't get bent out of shape and take personally if someone says it looks like crap.

    I'm aware of that one. I'm talking about the LED mods you can install on/in/under the cabinet. I recently saw a WOZ pic where the whole f'ing game glowed green. F'ing green, I tell you!!

    #139 4 months ago

    I remember the days when only operators and establishment owners actually owned the machines, and modifications were the initials someone carved in the side of the cabinet, and the cigarette burn marks on the wood rails.

    Making a machine your own is a personal thing. Be forewarned if you share it online and it looks like Disney wiped his ass with it, Pinside is going to make fun of it and rightly so.

    If people don't like negativity, well they better get over it because you can't have positivity without it. At least in the electronic world of pinball.

    Opinions are what they are. If you don't want to hear opposing ones, you are in the wrong place and wrong hobby.

    I actually really like the Skateball in the OP. I think that orange looks awesome, especially with the matching skateboard topper, star posts, pop bumpers, and backbox trim. It coordinates with one of the complementing colors in the game. My second favorite would be the Tron. I don't think it's "too dark" at all. Going lighter would have made it less tasteful, IMHO. Then again, I also like the original black, so not sure where that leave us.

    #142 4 months ago

    Your TRON LE looks sweet! Very tastefully done and the colors actually work. Not sure about the TRON logo laser cutting. Maybe it could use a few more

    Quoted from SuperPinball:

    I think we should be clear that powdercoating is not necessarily a bad thing and can enhance the look and feel of a game. After all there is a reason why LE's have it and people pay top dollar for it. I do agree that in some cases, the colors are way out of wack with the game and diminish the look of the game. I personally love the look and feel of powdercoating on my Bally/Williams but I absolutely draw the line with powdercoatind EM's and classic Sterns and Bally's. They need to stay original to keep their charm.
    I bought a Tron LE a few years back that had that ugly orange powdercoating on it and I couldn't stand looking at it every time I played it. I finally decided to re-chrome and powdercoat in blue clear over it to give it an electric look. I like it better than standard chrome and way better than that orange. If tastefully done, powdercoating can enhance but done wrong can really take away from the game. Here's my TRON LE.[quoted image]

    Quoted from Bublehead:

    Me too. So?

    Quoted from Bublehead:

    Making a machine your own is a personal thing. Be forewarned if you share it online and it looks like Disney wiped his ass with it, Pinside is going to make fun of it and rightly so.

    I'm confused, is it puke or is it shit? Although using either one says more about the person making the comparison than it does about the thing being compared.

    Quoted from Bublehead:

    If people don't like negativity, well they better get over it because you can't have positivity without it. At least in the electronic world of pinball.

    False equivalence, just because electricity needs both positive and negative to work doesn't mean anyone has to be a dick.

    Quoted from Bublehead:

    Opinions are what they are. If you don't want to hear opposing ones, you are in the wrong place and wrong hobby.

    No, you are on the wrong website. Pinside strives to keep things positive. They try, anyway.

    #146 4 months ago

    As much as these kind of topics make me cringe to read I feel they do serve some general purpose.

    When I first came into this hobby a few years ago everybody was saying use LEDs but without the disclaimer- using all color Leds for general illumination of the playfield & backbox looks like shit. Luckily I found the No rainbow puke thread and was shown many great examples of what not to do.
