Would you be able to make the Deadword mod for Judge Dredd? There are multiple people looking for one in the JD owners thread. Pinbits of out of stock and non responsive. I think it is PETG and laser cut.

Here is what it looks like:

It's a possibility, but I would need to have one in hand. I also have to figure out if the color is matchable.

#204 53 days ago

god bless for the TA mountains!!!
Thank you Jody! I will definitely have to get on the list

Thanks Jody for the willingness to help, but I was able to source one locally. He also put it for sale in his Pinside shop if anyone is interested.

Love what you are doing making all these ramps. Keep up the great work.

#207 49 days ago

Getting the first 8 sets washed and ready for painting tonight. Also have the Mousin' ramp ready to go for test fitting!

#208 49 days ago

Yeah for Mousin! Thanks Jody! you are Amazing!!!!

#209 48 days ago

If anybody is versed in Adobe Illustrator or comparable graphic design software, I am willing to pay for some simple vector files to be made up of the text on the TA mountain plastics. They look to be standard stencil fonts that would be constrained to a defined text box size. I can get the clear stickers printed...I just need a vector file made up with the yellow text. As of right now, the mountain plastics will not ship with those. If I am able to have them made at some point, I will send them out for free to anyone who purchased the mountains.

#210 46 days ago

Making progress...4 colors on these, and lots of time masking and spraying multiple coats to get full coverage. If you would like to save money and paint your own, let me know. I will sell clear sets for $125/set. Painted sets will be $200/set. Either way will include new CNC cut clear protectors for the left and right mountains.

Torpedo Alley Mountains:
Thanks to an awesome Pinsider, I was able to have files made for the yellow text on the plastics. I ordered clear stickers and hope to receive them next week.

If you are on my list, I will be contacting you early next week to ask whether you would like a clear set to paint on your own and save some money, or a painted set. I have some of each available right now. Painting is quite a bit of work and is taking time away from making more ramps, so I am not sure how many I will do in the long term. Both sets will come with the yellow text stickers, the clear protectors, new standoffs (white nylon), and new screws/nuts for attaching the protectors to the L/R side mountains.
Painted sets will be $200
Unpainted sets will be $130
Either outside mountain unpainted is $50 each, and the middle is $40 if you just would like a single part.

If you are not on the list and would like to be added, PM me your preference and also include your email address so I can invoice you when they are ready.

#212 39 days ago

Your ramps look great! Thank you for bringing so many machines back to life.

Any chance of an Elvira and the Party Monsters flip-up target cover? Mine is cracked and bondo'd back together. I've seen some other folks looking for one too. Starship reproduced the ramps, but not that cover. There's a picture here.

Jody...If you are not interested in this I have an EATPM machine at a friends house that I am waiting to get back home. I could take a look at doing this one when I get it back.

Nope. Thats the top clear plastic piece with the artwork, not the piece underneath.

#217 34 days ago

Ready to roll! I have a few sets ready to go now, but I will need to get a count of who wants painted versions and who wants unpainted versions.

Hi Jody, I love your work. For the Data East Hook fans out there, I've ended up with a spare windcoaster ramp. This one's famous for being "unobtanium" due to its complexity. If you're interested I can sell you mine. It came from a game that was parted out years ago. However, it has some imperfections such as a missing lower bracket.

Let me know by PM if this is something you want to look at. I also have a spare skill shot ramp for the shooter lane. I don't think either have been reproduced and there seems to be a lot of interest. I also don't see any on eBay.

That one is a bit out of my skill set at the moment, but I appreciate the offer!

New ramp day! This is the helicopter/bowl ramp assembly for Special Force. I slid this one under the radar since recently acquiring this game. This is my first experience running green, and it happens to be a great match for this game. I am going to make these a bit darker so they show up green in the game a bit better.

These will be $95 plus shipping for ramp/helicopter bowl combo. Comes with the flap installed as well.

Such an underrated game and now you come out with the ramp. Kuddos to JodyG!!!

Frankenstein ramps. Check our thread, lot of us need new ramps.

How long is that left side from back to front? It appears to be over or very close to being over the max size my machine can handle. I have kicked around the idea of making these big ramps in two pieces, but the purists may balk at that modification.

I can measure or send pictures. The main one most of us need are the upper ramps. There are 2, about 6” long, each. They both attach to the play field & hold a lot intact. You would sell plenty, believe me. You are right, the lower is long, would love one, but, the upper ones are always broken. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can you send me photos of the ramps you are talking about? I am not finding much for reference photos on google.

Received the Jokerz donor ramps yesterday! These look like they will go pretty easily, and I can do them affordably for those interested.

The side ramps will be $50 each and the center ramp will be $65 plus shipping. This price includes new blue flaps for the side ramps.

The upper playfield is still available NOS from PPS here: http://www.planetarypinball.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=PPS-03-8195&Category_Code=GS-1308

The right ramp top flap is riveted to a support bracket, so that will not come riveted if you choose to DIY the assembly. I will offer assembly on these with the proper chrome plated brass rivets if you send me your old ramps (or just the parts) for $25. The right ramp has 10 rivets in it! The left ramp has a switch bracket riveted on top of the decal. I can leave this one off if you are planning to reuse decals or apply new ones. ** I do not offer decals on any ramps I make, you will need to acquire them through whoever is licensed to make/sell them. **

Jokerz update: I pushed these up on my schedule so I can run them with some other ramps I am out of currently and need to rerun. So here are the first ones trimmed out. I need to add the other small holes, but you get the idea.

I will start running sets of these next week. If you are planning on sending me parts for assembly, now would be a good time to think about pulling the ramps out of your machine. Note, the left ramp has a switch bracket riveted over the decal. If you would like me to leave that bracket off, please let me know.

Also, if you are waiting for some other ramps I am currently out of, I plan to have a decent stock of everything around the week of Thanksgiving. I am doing double my normal run size in order to have a few extras on the shelf through the holidays.

Also as an FYI, I will be backpacking this weekend...so I may not be able to answer questions until Monday.

Ramps for Indianapolis 500. I know you have said that the right ramp is too big for your machine, but what about the left ramp?
Also, is anyone doing the ramps for the Simpsons pinball party? Thanks, Mìke
