Early Bally Shooter Rods.... 8 inch versions and 9 inch versions. Which goes to what? I actually don't know, and I'm curious.
I know Playboy and Six Million Dollar Man each use 9s. Was there a cutoff for a time before that had the shorter?
Also, if you notice the 9s I have there have different positioning for the C clips...
Discuss if you will....

I love Project Pinball, glad to be involved!
And for the record.... It's a set of Chrome OR Brass Bally/Williams OR Stern legs - our custom bolts to match are included.

Any other Metallica fans out there? This was a screenshot of Lars answering questions after the release of the new S&M movie - which I saw last night. Cool they have kept their pin around in their hangout.
I really hope to get a Roadcase edition at some point. One of these days.
Hope everyone is doing well, let me know if you need anything!

Got the brass parts on IJ. It looks great!!! The speaker and bottom u channel couldn’t be any easier if anyone didn’t know. It’s four screw in each. And I think Chris says you want to wax the brass. I do hope that’s still the case.

Easy 30 minute project and excuse to wax the cabinet and other brass while there.

Thanks for sharing the pics!!! And thank you for bringing up this question... so let me use this opportunity to teach folks that don't know about this.

YES, WAX YOUR BRASS
I'd do all the parts after the install then from there, really just the parts that your hands touch is what's important.
I use a spray wax you can get in any auto care section of a store or automotive parts store, McGuires, Mothers, whoever you like. I spray it onto a very soft clean clean and just rub/clean/polish the parts periodically. If you do this, you should never have problems with the finish. This is THE way you should clean and wipe down your brass/coppper/black nickel platings. You do not need to do this with your chrome, but when wiping chrome do not use a dry towel, even if it's soft. It needs polish or I often use windex, but it needs to again be a soft towel. Otherwise you risk scratching your finish and nobody wants that!

WHY DO I NEED TO DO THIS?
Your brass (and copper or black nickel) plated parts have a automotive clear coat on them to protect the finish on them after they have been plated and polished.
The wax will protect the clear coat from the acid in your hands, which otherwise over time can eat through the clear and then begin to discolor and remove your plating.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO THIS?
I don't myself do it as often as I should, but I would recommend anytime you are doing wipe-downs on your machines, getting ready for a party or just cleaning them up, do it. If you do it that often then you'll never have to worry about it.

Apron for a Williams game - I'm keeping more of these in stock for different titles. This one fits Bride of Pinbot but I sent it out in exchange for one on a Whirlwind. Sometimes I just need some good pics of yours to see if I have the same one in stock in chrome or brass.
Glad to help if I can, thanks for looking!

That is sharp. You should see if beatmaster could make you a shooter light up plate for that, that would look killer. He made one for my Batman Forever which is the same plate but different gun. The black gun doesn't have the plastic bolts but the second picture does along with the new light up plastic gun. I even used clear plastic bolts so the heads light up too.My red Leg Lights and red cup light would look great too.
