Quoted from jasonbar:

Is this a foamy tape?

No. It is a bit like Scotch tape (translucent, basically firm), but thicker. Most foam tape is much thicker than this anti-rattle tape.

For sale: Centerflank wiring mod. This mod is just 40 feet of wires stripped from a Ford Taurus. You just throw it in your cabinet so that it looks like you have as many lighting mods in your Tron as Centerflank does.

The price is $12,000 because I have to buy a donor Taurus to create the mod. PM sent with my Paypal info.

Since I am not in the possession of Mr. CF at the moment I think his for sale ad here is a total scam. Negotiate with caution knowing the apron you will get will just be some shrubby old forgery.

I think the AoD is in an undisclosed location courtesy of the US Postal Service at the moment.

Yeah. He might adopt his LadySlingshot cross dressing persona when he does it too. Jenner styles.

More importantly Flankster, when are you going to grow a mountain man beard, get some sleeves, set up a Twitch account and stream some catpocalypse?
You'll have plenty of viewership, I guarantee it!
And with all the donations rolling in you'll finally be able to retire that hole of glory you keep making Mrs. Flank yell at you through!

Thats tempting, wonder if it would be enough $ to stop working, sanding houses like this sucks!

Hate it

#6126 3 years ago

Wow,
That's um...specshul?
I can hear the designer's thoughts while sketching up that house now:
"Corduroy,
Man do I love me some corduroy!
I should build the exterior of a house as a tribute to my love of all things that go fwip fwip fwip!"

So if you fall off the ladder and go sliding down the side F(p)lankster, does it attract all the nearby wolverines?
Or at least a quartet of swamp band players missing their washboard guy?

I don't fall off ladders, I'm a ninja on those things. My wife gets nervous when I jump from one ladder to the other when I'm 30ft in the air.

Wolverines love me

Good to hear!
I'd hate to think you shredded/cashed out your "certifiable badassery" card due to old age.

Strange chimney... I think stone would look better... Or maybe EL wire?

Man, I wish all chimneys were stone, it's extremely difficult to get at the backside of this one, I distinctly remember some choice words I let out when I did this house back in 09

I'd buy them if available!

#6139 3 years ago

I still have my black mirror blades I purchased for Tron in the box... I keep meaning to install them after I get "done" modding everything I can inside the game. The problem is everytime I think I'm getting close... I find something else to do to it. Last weekend I even got the small clamps out and put them beside the game as I thought I was "done".

This week, I've got EL wire coming in to finally fix Zuse's cane and I need to order translucent flipper buttons to hook up to RGB controller... which now has under cabinet lighting, back cabinet lighting, the apron triangles, the clear disc of doom, and the topper plugged into it and all syncing off the ramps. I did all of this an the EL paper for the rails and added the LE apron flashers in the last couple of weeks.

I'm still thinking about getting the EL paper for the translucent game cards and possibly adding under and back of the cabinet flashers and finally adding that ColorDMD and then deciding if I want it to sync with the ramps or run the color package.

A pimped out Tron is the only game that can sit beside a WoZ and not feel jelly about all the bling.

BTW - anyone have an suggestions on how to fix a lit lightcycle that seems to keep flashing?

If it's random flashing, I bet the guy that modded it for you super glued the switch as opposed to soldering the wires.....

It's a consistent pulse. The other one stays on just fine.

#6142 3 years ago
Quoted from jedimastermatt:

Both cycles wired to the same power source? The Hallmark cycles need to have wires soldered to the battery leads. You have to sand or file them for the solder to get a good bond. If that didn't happen the light is probably dim and could cause the flicker.

I had one of mine give me fits.....it was the switch. But if your's is consistently pulsing you may have to dig deeper.....are they wired direct, through a PIG2, or an insert? Suspect that would be where to start.....

Is the "clear disc of doom" a spinner with clear rubber? I'm late to the Tron party. My disc is leaving black dropping all over the place.

They were on the machine when I purchased them, so I haven't figured out the wiring path yet. Next time I pull the playfield up, I'll take a closer look. Thanks for the ideas of where to start. If anything, I'll just connect the offending one up to the other source to rule out if it's internal to the bike.

Quoted from Superchicken:

Yes. It's the gravity defying addition that will cause all sort of interesting effects with the ball and it will stop the addition of more black rubber being added everywhere. I would order at least one spare just in case you need it down the line.

Hate to break it to you.....but you've already realized it......you're never " done" modding in Tronland....price you pay for owning a badass machine.......

On mine.....really like the el paper under the instruction cards....

Colordmd looks best in color.....had mine on sigma mode and serial control to follow the colors of the speaker light kit...looked cool too, but the color rocks...subtle but deadly.....

Have fun...put your mirrors on, and enjoy ( still betting your switch is screwed in one of your light cycles, but just swapping feeds w the other one is smart....
