I'm reproducing the topper as a joint deal with Planetary Pinball. It's not easy. You have to digitally print red on clear PETG or buy 5000lbs of red PETG. We're in the testing phase.

Could'nt it be dyed red?

#454 61 days ago

Yes but it woud be traslucent and the original is almost opaque. It would be way different than the original.

What about dying the plastic red and then putting a white mask on the interior. The mask can determine how opaque you want it due to thickness and it might be a more cost and labor efficient solution to digital printing.

We just need to figure out what you can do with the extra 4900lbs. I suggest the Starship Fantasy Slide Park filled with human sized versions of all your ramps.

Wow it's been a while since I last updated! I've been super busy building stock up and satisfying orders pretty much every day of the week for Pinfest. I do have one new ramp that is in test fitting stage. Those of you looking for one know exactly what it is!

I will be shipping orders through next Friday, then I have a few days vacation followed by Allentown Pinfest. The web site will not be taking orders at that time so I don't accidentally sell something that sells out at the show.

The web site will reopen for orders August 1st.

I'll probably take at least a couple weeks off from production, because I need a break! I also want to make some shop upgrades.

Hey there - I've seen you've made ramps for a few DE games - Any chance a Robocop Jump Ramp is on your radar?

Has anyone installed your Indy500 ramps yet? Haven't seen posts on here or on the the club member thread.

Nobody has sent me pictures, but I am lucky to see an install picture of 1 out of 100 ramps I sell. And Indy 500 is a pretty involved swap, compared to most.

Had a great time at Pinfest this weekend! It was pretty exhausting as the first time i've done a major setup at the show, but I finally was able to meet a bunch of great pinsiders and customers I have sold ramps to in the past. I brought a few games for freeplay, and I think I converted a bunch of folks on the fact that Gold Wings is actually a fun game. Todd Tuckey stopped by and gave a pretty good overview of what I make- you can check out the interview and the rest of the show walkthrough here:

I get requests for it, but nothing will happen before early 2022 at this point.

I always knew it was and finally pick one up at the show to add to my Gottlieb sys80 collection.
