Just the thread I needed to show off my Black Spidey.
I have the blue etched plastic protectors from Pinbits. I love the way they look. You don't even notice the blue...the actual etching is the only blue in it and I think that is just so you can see the design. I have only seen pics of their other webbed protectors on their site, but I really can't imagine them looking as good as the etched ones when installed. You can also see I added a GI light under the Spider-Man and American flag plastic in the pic of the Spider Sense lane protector.
I also have a red DMD cover and speaker Spiders from Pinbits.
I have colored webbies installed. The red and yellow were from Steve Ritchie's website. They were a bit of a pain to install. Doc Ock wasn't to bad, but Sandman was a pain in the butt. Everyone talked about how easy it is....it's only easy if you have a privot drill or something like that. A tool I had honestly never heard of. I eneded up and finally got the rivets drilled out with a lot of cussing and greif. Looking back it would be easy if you had the above mentioned tool, and if not, it would probably be easier than I did it if you remove the back board from the playfield.
The green and blue webbies come from Fabrication Unlimited:
These were also a bit harder to put on than first expected. A lot of ramps and plastics had to be stripped, but it was still easier than drilling out the rivets. I really like each villian getting it's own color matched web.
You can also see I have the Back Alley Creations Sandman "legs" installed. I like this...others don't. I can understand why. I think it adds to the baren area that is the big clear Sandman plastic...others think it blocks the view. To each his own, but I like it.
I have NoFlix+ LEDs under the inserts from pinballcenter.eu and color matching LED in each villians spot lights (cointaker narrow beams in Venom and Green Goblin, Ultras in the Doc Ock and Sandman). I also have target decals and think a game without them looks naked and unfinished.
The last pic to mention is my back box. A lot of work has went into this. It was originally a Cointaker color changing LED board. Then a got a bare (just wires, harness and sockets) kit from Arcade Upkeep. Then I wired my own relay control so I could switch the backboard to always on, always off, or on/off controlled with the machines GI lights. Having the backboard turn off when the games GI lights went off really addded some extra punch to the flashers. I have super bright color matching flasher behind each villian. I know some folks don't like the color matching with the villians on Spidey, but I have fully embraced it. Matching webs, spots and flashers behind the backglass.
I have many other mods and additions on my Black Spidey. I feel like it's pretty modded, but still not too over the top.
