    I love my Metallica in Candy Purple, my Black Spider-Man in Black and my Tron LE is Candy Blue (I HATE Crome). Yes I need to change the t-mounding out, just haven’t had a chance. Flame on!

    P.S. I saved the original chrome trim for Black Spider-Man and Tron so someone can properly restore them some day. Metallica, that was more of a permanent change because of the awesome triangles side trim. Love it! Flame on!

    To each his own, I knew I’d get these comments. I love it and that’s all that matters because it’s mine. I saved all the crome trim if I ever sell it and the new owner wants to return it to original.

    It's super confusing I know. Do I upvote your horrible looking pictures becasue they are in fact the worst fails which is the point of the thread , or downvote them becasue they are so ugly?

    EDIT: Spidermande` looks decent.

    I knew this one would show up here when I saw a pic of this game and Pinside didn't disappoint. I have to say though I am disappointed the owner didn't stripe the yellow t-molding on the backbox. #missedopportunity

    Quoted from LesManley:

    He must have finished off the roll of electrical tape before he could finish striping the t-molding. Needs a trip to the hardware store before he can stripe the rest.

    Both are nice. But neither of you have this shooter rod. Now I just need a game to go with it.

    I don't think there is anything you can do to this machine to make it too gaudy. It either completely overwhelms you as it orginally was or it never will.

    #243 75 days ago

    I thought I had seen it all. The most eye piercing monstrosities out there, the worst of the worst...and then your powdercoater said "hold my beer". That is some absolutely legendary Hall of Fame shitty powder coating choices. Like the Babe Ruth of powder coating puke. Congratulations?

    Someone's been snorting skittles again lol.

    #245 75 days ago

    I’m curious, why would you want to be surprised in the first place? Unless your powdercoater has blown you away in the past by doing something you didn’t ask for

    lock the thread & put a warning on it - we've reached the end.

    This cannot be unseen.

    We need to protect the innocent.

    Perhaps you should've said "surprise me, but in a good way".

    Holly shit, I just figured out what he was thinking.
    Its powder coated in the four colors of the four different ninja turtles. I was so focused on how ugly it is, I couldn’t figure out what he was thinking (still can’t).

    Red - Raphael
    Blue - Leonardo
    Purple - Donatello
    Orange - Michelangelo

    Still looks like it belongs on a float in a pride parade though.

    He even had the insight to match the start of the side rails to the color on each side of the lockdown bar

    Even rudy has to close his eyes at this awful powdercoat
