Quoted from Mitch:
Where the problems begin. Only $269 dollars to make your game look terrible.
Have to love the description.
"This is a gorgeous Pinball LED lighting kit for the Demolition Man Pinball."
I was just looking through the sellers kits, and pretty much every single one is hideous.
Quoted from PoMC:
DIY "Pinstadium" lighting that I made yesterday for Big Hurt. This game is so damn dark even with the spotlights I added to the slings and experimented with small LED strips here and there. I had the Metallica Creeping Death UV strips that I had used on TFTC, but since TFTC is tore apart right now I tried these out. I removed the UV LED strips from the angle plastics and replaced with white LED strips for $8.
What's funny is the creeping death lightning decals on the plastic strips perfectly fit Big Hurt. Matches up exactly with the lightning on the backbox and playfield. Very nice to be able to see the entire playfield evenly lit.
Whaddya think? First 3 pics are before and the rest are after.
That looks really nice!! I also like that the light reflects off of the wire ramps spreading more light across the field. Kind of looks like those ramps are glowing white. Does that game not have lighted slings?
They tore this guy a new one in the comments for his LED job and rediculously high asking price on Facebook yesterday. It was hilarious.
Quoted from ryanwanger:
So, kind people in this thread, I ask you: would you buy all white kits? I think most of you are comfortable making your own. But, I'd love to be proven wrong.
I already do and I buy them all from you guys. I have all white in four of my machines, not all the same though. They are a mixture of 1SMD, 2SMD, frosted and clear. I like to put certain bulbs in key locations and I am pretty particular about it. Led install to me is like a form of art and I like to pretend that I am painting a picture on canvas and the best job is always done through thorough experimentation. I like to take at least 2 to 3hrs to led a machine to get it to my liking.
These are compliments of Letgo. The thing needs to be "Letgo" from the edge of a cliff into a deep ravine.
Quoted from wayout440:
I'll agree and disagree with that statement. It takes multiple shots in different directions to comp!ete the combo shots round, and you need the tight left shot to light the wagon whelel. The most lucrative shots are upfield to the bank shots, or the tough special target on the left. Shots for the horseshoe can be disastrous with the random cue ball in the way. Lots to shoot at on CBW and score well.
I agree that is a terrible way to light it. No LEDs of any color will go in mine.
One of the better system 3's in my opinion. So much so that I've owned it three different times lol.
Second guy in the row looks like he's about to puke. Possibly from the sight of clown puke?
Exactly what I said. Turns out the whole deal is a retrofitted setup that he got off of Amazon
Quoted from Colsond3:
because a ton of people LED the piss out of these games and put new rubbers on, but the game doesn't even function or isn't adjusted properly, because those things aren't really important.
This pretty much sums up the majority of the machines that I played at shows up and down the east coast last year. These sellers think that adding gaudy LED's and rubbers on a half working and poorly adjusted pin will get it sold along with ridiculously high asking price better reserved for a much nicer "fully working" example.
This one's for sale. Luckily it has a description because otherwise I wouldn't know what it was.
A local tech did a service call on these three gems yesterday. To bad that call didn't include a complete swap out of the Led's.
True, It's not often that you see one where the yellow start button ring is blended into the fade.
Quoted from CaptainNeo:
The car in this picture is fine.
I have to disagree. It's no longer the year 2000-2001 and the neon under glow fad is dead. No one should be doing it today. Given that old trends eventually return depending on what they were, this one does not deserve a return. lol. I won't lie though, I had a blue setup on my car back in 1997
Holy hell. This thing is a fully animated puke show. Video of it in action is in this link but I think you have to join to see it. My apologies in advance for any loss of eye sight or lunch. I love all of the comments from people saying that they love it, but don't know any better.
Quoted from PinballManiac40:
It was a Facebook posting that someone was excited to post about.
It always is. Facebook members are the kings when it comes to bragging and showing off puked pins. The comments are hilarious mostly of other members encouraging pukers, telling them that their machines look awesome, etc, which unfortunately encourages them to puke even more of their pins in the future. Why can't people just be honest with each other, or maybe they just have horrible color taste also? Lol
These guys puking these Spidermans all seem to do them identical. Has to be a kit they are buying.
