    What is the thickness of a Gottlieb HURDY GURDY backglass or any other model of the same era (1966)?

    I'm looking for the backglass dimensions for alpha numeric data east games (Playboy 35th specifically) if anyone can provide that information.

    Just measured Batman 66. The glass itself is 25-7/8 x 16-1/2 x 1/8 inch without the plastic trim pieces.

    It's a pretty fair assumption that other SPIKE II games are the same size

    Just installed my glass for Jolly Ride. That's a Playmatic with the glass in a frame that rises up. 40" X 20" fit perfect. Purchased from One Day Glass (onedayglass.com), looks real nice. Price was reasonable compared to the local places, $75.93 (tempered). Took about a month, but the local places also said around a month.

    Quoted from jaytrem:

    That's pretty expensive. In my area, it's been around $30 for standard playfield glass, and almost $60 for widebody.

    Might be a supply and demand thing. Called 2 local places, they both said about a month and were both over $100. Standard was $40 at Allentown this year. Figured an extra $35 for custom size and shipping wasn't bad.

    Yeah, shipping glass is expensive.

    The glass places here charge based on the physical dimensions of the glass.

    Also--when ordering, make sure to specify that the edges be sanded, not polished. Polishing costs extra, which isn't necessary since the edges aren't visible in a game.

    can someone confirm if bally hardbody the have the same backglass size as the other 6803 pinballs?

    I don't think all of the stern MPU-100 games are the same length. Tried to put a new piece of glass into a Hot Hand and it is too long. Compared to what was installed there originally and the new piece (standard "Classic SS" glass) is longer... Anyone else experience this or is this new glass cut wrong?

    That's news to me. Are you sure there's nothing in the rear channel that might be blocking the glass from sliding all the way back?

    What are the lengths of the old glass and the new glass?

    Are you sure that the cab is original, and not a rebuild cab, or a cab from another game?

    #67 2 years ago

    I will get the tape measure out to check the differences in length and check the back channel. It is a 100% original cabinet with no apparent modifications.

    #68 2 years ago

    The original piece that was in the Hot Hand was 43" even. The replacement piece was long at 43 & 3/16" The new piece will not allow the lockdown bar to close fully onto the game as the glass is in the way...

    #69 2 years ago
    Quoted from Xenon75:

    The original piece that was in the Hot Hand was 43" even. The replacement piece was just shy of the spec'd 43 & 3/16" The new piece will not allow the lockdown bar to close fully onto the game as the glass is in the way...

    So the new glass doesn't have the correct measurements?

    It looks like whoever made your glass made it too long. is should be 43" long and 3/16" thick. I suspect they added the thickness to the length.
    They took 21" x 43 3/16" instead of 21" x 43" x 3/16"

    #71 2 years ago

    Yes I suspect you are correct - I will note that this mis-cut glass will fit in a classic bally no problem. Just a no-go on a classic MPU-100 based stern.

    Anyone have a size for time fantasy/firepower 2?

    Quoted from SMP14:

    Those just take standard modern playfield glass, 43" x 21" x 3/16" thick.

    The early Segas Maverick through to Goldeneye and including all 4 large DMD Segas all have same size backglass glass. It is 26-1/2" by 19-3/4" and 1/8" thick, as measured and in attached photographs.

    Part number 660-5018-00 (from Item 16 of page 44 of the Baywatch manual) which also confirms the length at 26-1/2" and width of 19-3/4" (but not thickness)

    The following have this same glass listed in the manual:

    Maverick
    Apollo 13
    Batman Forever
    Baywatch
    Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
    Goldeneye

    Independence Day and Twister have a different glass. 660-5008-00 which is 26" x 22-1/2"

    Great, thanks for the measurements. I went ahead and updated them and a few other DE/Sega/Stern entries

    Gottlieb System 1 backglass size seems to be missing. I have a Solar Ride which is 26 x 26. But came here to confirm if Genie being widebody was the same.

    Anybody?

    does anyone know what are the dimensions for Gottlieb EM and Gottlieb Sys80 back glasses?
    thanks

    Gottlieb EM's are 660x610mm or 26"x24" (Fast Draw, Spirit of 76, Royal Flush)

    Quoted from Escapism:

    Gottlieb EM's are 660x610mm or 26"x24" (Fast Draw, Spirit of 76, Royal Flush)

    I'm pretty sure that's incorrect. That's almost a square. The size that is currently listed for 1970s games is 21" x 43" x 3/16".

    Ugh, I missed that since he mentioned EMs. EMs don't have translites.
