Just make sure to send it to a Professional that does great work..... in other words, not Neo. His tears usually get on the pf before he clears and causes fisheyes.

Dilemma: in my efforts to leave almost no parts of my Tron untouched w/ customized goodness, I am so very interested in putting interesting art on the recognizer & ZUSE targets. The problem is, I'm not adequately turned on by any of the offerings that I've seen:

1: top-notchtargetshields on eBay: ebay.com link The colors & swirls & lightning don't really match the rest of the PF art.

2: pinballdecalscom: http://www.pinballdecals.com/TRONTargetDecalsPage.html. The ZUSE targets seem to fit the theme rather well, but the recognizer targets don't quite work for me.

3: thegloversprimusca: ebay.com link These recognizer targets are pretty decent...a little simple, but simpler is probably better for target art. Perhaps a different color scheme would excite me more.

Any other options out there that I've missed?

Thanks,

#2731 5 years ago

edit:
OR I CAN READ says fits all stern 1999-present. Good to know.

#2732 5 years ago

I bought some of the OU BAO clips: ebay.com link

They arrived.

The fiber optic wires in Eli's kit from pinbits.com are about .200" (5mm) in outer diameter.

The 2 "C" features on each clip are about .270" (7mm) in inner diameter.

There's a fair amount of rattle.

But, each clip has 2 C features, & the openings face in opposite directions.

Only MPC knows when I'll find time to install my kit, but perhaps the prescribed attachment locations & fiber optic bends will make the wires nest securely in each clip.

In the eBay picture, you see a big yellow rectangle behind the clips--that's a grid of double-sided tape pieces. The clips themselves don't have adhesive backing. You have to stick both sides of the tape.

This might turn out to be a handy way of installing the kit without needing to remove the ramps to drill holes...? (Says the guy who hasn't yet looked into the installation process.)

But hey, for less than $10 shipped to the USA, why not just buy a set & see what you can do with the clips, eh?

More Tron fun. Silver balls, blue nuts!

http://www.pinballlife.com/index.php?p=product&id=2340

Removed all Nylon Insert nuts (or, as I like to say "Nyloc Nut," because I'm hip).

Blue nylon acorn nuts abound.

I will always think of you as blue nuts guy!

Looking forward to pics of your fiber optics installed!

#2735 5 years ago

nice blue nuts man....

I prefer mine in clear though

on a serious note, wonder how they would look in clear??

I'm guessing not so hot. Lots of threaded parts have a bit of gunk in the threads from manufacturing--it's not trivial to remove the gunk--I'd bet the male threaded parts have a bit of gunk that would be a bit unsightly.

Here's where you can call me a hypocrite: I've got a full set of clear rubbers to install (including shooter tip, flipper bands, & identity disc). Need to set aside a chunk of time to swap them all at once. I figure that, if I have some black & some clear on there at the same time, some black gunk might transfer to the clears & look gunky.

Clear thingies came from http://www.pinballcenter.eu/english/pinball-parts/

Even though they're in Germany & I'm in California, their prices were excellent, their shipping was cheap (about $12.67 US), & their shipping was fast. I placed good-sized orders from Pinball Center & Pinball Life on the same day, & the PC order arrived 1 day after the PL order(!)

Many more cosmetic tweak posts with Tron pron pics forthcoming! =D

I guess Gem & Quorra like my blue nuts. They let me into Portal for the first time tonight. But, it was short-lived. I did terribly.

It was frustrating. You know, like when you get all excited about something & there's a big build-up, but then nothing exciting ends up happening & you end up all frustrated & antsy? I think there's some figure of speech that describes that feeling...

-Jason

PS--was one Gem away from a second SOS. Got my high: 201M.

#2739 5 years ago

yep, that feeling while PORTAL is blinking on the scoop, and your heart is quite to explode !

"get in get in" (said quorra & gem)... and finally it ends with no satisfaction...

(lol inside)

#2740 5 years ago

never seen a thread vanish before.

i'm clearly using the wrong search engine.

#2747 5 years ago

I'm getting the hang of it after a few weeks of extensive playing.

Grand Champ of 202 on 3 balls factory (1 extra ball). Still have to comlete portal multiball, but don't you just love it when Portal is lit and you get the scream from Quorra?

#2748 5 years ago

I've probably put close to 600+ games on various Trons all over my city, and haven't ever FINISHED Portal, after having been in Portal at least 20+ times that I can recall.

#2749 5 years ago

I don't even think I can complete the Flynn mode
