I doubt it ever happens, but I'd *love* for Alien Poker to get done at some point. That was my first game and I think it would be fantastic with a hardtop!

Alien Poker and Laser Cue would be great addition to the hardtop lineup!

#1757 35 days ago

I might be bringing my old one back home soon. It definitely could use a hardtop at some point though, given its issues with planking and a few wear marks all the way to bare wood. Oh, and new backglass

I can't remember, it's it necessary to replace cupped inserts as well? I assume it's probably best to do it if you can.. right?

I shared on the space shuttle thread but for those concerned if I can do it you can do it. You can easily tell before and after. Hardtop saved this one!

Looks great! Always love seeing the clear ramps.

#1760 35 days ago

Clear was way to go IMO. Love it!

Quoted from Jimmyapple:

Agreed. I think clear is the PERFECT match for shuttle, especially when hardtopped.

I like that you put something under that wide open spot in the ramp. Gives it a bit of a focal point which it kind of needs IMO.

Question, my playfield is sanded and clear coated. How long should I wait before installing the hardtop? I have read "when it is dry" and "allow multiple days for gassing out". Thanks.

Guidance from Outside Edge is "several days" for outgassing. I waited a week to be sure - a few light coats of clear on a Sunday and put on the hardtop the following Saturday.

#1765 10 days ago

As a general rule, if it doesn't smell when you put your nose right up to it, it's probably done outgassing

"The fingernail test" is a good way to test if it's cured

VID IS BACK? Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Missed you!

#1768 4 days ago

I second this- I've got a Sorcerer and a friend has one that could both use a hardtop. Pretty much every Sorcerer I've ever seen is bad around the inserts in the center.

Plus it would complete the System 9s trifecta of hardtops.

#1769 3 days ago

Welp

Nooooo, I'm pretty sure Vid nailed it. I've got a fever, and the only prescription is more Hardtop!

Nice... I have a FP that's in the queue of projects and its waiting for a hardtop!

I made one custom for my firepower 2, Now is something used, maybe you would make a firepower 2 hardtop?
sorry for my inglishj

#1779 1 day ago

If it really is Jungle Lord I'm gonna flip. I picked one up that needs help like 3 months ago. Someone needs to make plastics and glass for that game. They made like 6000 of them and plastics are always busted, the backglass is always shedding.

#1780 13 hours ago

Apologies if it's been mentioned in this thread already by others, but if there's ever a Paragon hardtop made, I will throw my money at it SO fast. These all look simply amazing.

#1781 11 hours ago

I just purchased a new Paragon PF from CPR. Just FYI.
