Quoted from spfxted:

So, all I need to do is pry that nail forward and pull it out

Yeah, being very careful to not damage the decal and paint. I generally have one very thin metal blade for the initial work, then I use a slightly thicker one once I've gotten one part of the rail a little loosened.
I would be careful with the rails, too. If nothing else, you could snag a couple of bucks for them if they don't get too scratched up or bent.

#2902 1 year ago

Got ya! Scared Stiff has a screened cab, but I'll still be careful...

Pull old rails off and put new ones on.

The danger here is damaging the artwork on the side of the cabinet while removing the old side rails.

I think I understand. I also think I (er, my wife) has the correct tools....

Wow Ted, you're getting brave with the mods! I know how much you love digging in to your machines. I'll be standing by eating popcorn... Keep us updated... Good luck!

Hah! You got that right! I also bought those mirrorblades (metal) with the art screened on them. I don't know if I'll try that!
Undercab LED's I might attempt!

Yes indeed, I found this beautiful creature hidden behind the woofer. Lucky me!!

I have done a lot of the side rails. The best method I have learned is to use a hair dryer and heat up the rail to where it hurts to touch it. Then use a thin (as thin as possible) metal scraper. Do not use a plastic scraper! Go slow and gently push the scraper through the two sided tape under the rail. You can pull out slightly gently as your moving the scraper through the tape. As for the nail in rear of the trim, Just like the previous post. Heat it, push the sraper under the area with the nail and pull out gently just to raise the head of the nail. I use a small pair of vise grips. You have to turn (CC) the nail as it comes out because it is spiraled (twisted) Good Luck

#2911 1 year ago

^^^ then have fun cleaning up all the tape residue
Also when you put your new rails on there's no need to put that tape on the whole length of the rail .

#2912 1 year ago

Side rails vary in difficulty to remove. I have had a few that were a real PITA! The tape was really stubborn and I needed a lot of heat to get the job done. Some games like MB, CC and CP have really fragile decals and the decal will try and come off with the side rail. Those game you sometimes have to take a razor knife and cut the decal along the very bottom of the side rail so the rail will come off (with the portion of the decal that the rail is stuck to) and not disturb the cabinet decal. Once the new rail is on, it looks perfect. Some side rails almost just fall off with a little heat.

#2913 1 year ago

Interesting. Granted, I've only done a few, but I've never run across any that were taped. In light of that, I withdraw my previous comments about heat.

Ok, so all Scared Stiffs have tape under the rails?

#2915 1 year ago

All W/B side rails use a commercial equivalent of two sided tape. It is gray instead of white. When you reinstall them you use two sided tape. The gray stuff is not nice to remove and you hope that most of it sticks to the side rail and not the cabinet. I use alcohol to remove the old stuff. Anything stronger can damage the cabinet plus you don't want to breath that stuff.

Good to know. Kinda a PITA, but something to keep in mind. Thanks!

Thanks Dude! So, all I need to do is pry that nail forward and pull it out. I already have other rails, so I'm not worried about these.
Pull old rails off after removing nails. Put new ones on and put nails back...or screws, etc. Got it!

Fairly straight forward just take your time. There is one screw and nut at the front of rail near the lock bar to remove both sides. if your not set on keeping and reusing the old rails you can simply and Slowly pull them up and at an angle. Note that it is best to do one side at a time and you Really should lower the backbox mount arm so you can access the full length. Just remove the 2 screws holding it to the back box and let it hang. Heat can help to slightly soften the old tape as some can be a Bear! Just be careful not to overheat the decals! Pull upward and out only so as not to tear the cabinet art. Use a sharp straight blade razor to remove excess black adhesive tape so the new rails mount flush. Finally, I strongly recommend the 3M moulding tape (link below). Pretty much the same as the original used. Don't use cheap foam tape! Good luck and take your time!

It seems pretty strong...can it be removed if I ever want to change rails?

#2921 1 year ago
Quoted from spfxted:

It is pretty strong but I have removed rails with this tape before. I prefer this tape because it is fairly slim in profile and also rigid similar to what the factory used to keep the rails straight and not spongy up against the cabinet. Hopefully your not going to keep removing them often if thats the case don't use any tape.

#2923 1 year ago

Quick question:
How many people would be interested in purchasing a new replacement crate door? Kerry from Mantis Amusements is considering doing a run of them if he can get enough interest.

EDIT: I completely messed up with a phone auto-correct. This is a question about the door.

#2924 1 year ago

Plastic or metal? I replaced mine with a metal one. Much stronger when beat on with a large metal ball!

#2926 1 year ago

Ok, I have two interested parties already.

#2927 1 year ago

Yep got one already. Great product you guys will love it.

#2928 1 year ago

How much would they cost?

#2929 1 year ago

I posted previously that I'm looking for the large plastic that goes underneath the coffin. I've asked around and, since no one has one to spare, I'm thinking of another strategy. If I purchase this plastic set from ebay for $80 and just take the one plastic that I need, would someone want to purchase the remaining 12 pieces for $55 plus shipping? The link to the set is below. Please PM if you're in

#2930 1 year ago
Quoted from spfxted:

Between $20-30.
I was looking for one, and they seem to be out of stock everywhere. If someone happens top have one, let me know. He would need a sample anyway.

#2931 1 year ago

Put a wanted ad out there to find this plastic. I've included the pic from the ad which details the piece I'm looking for.

Thanks!

Thanks, I think it will be shine, it was horrible and full of dust, a very nice vacuum cleaning first to avoid scratches when buffing, waiting the DMD from a fellow member here, comes from Russia and it's taking ages to get here. Want to do some mods, boney beast led, skull heads and dancing bogie man.

I really like this pin, and didn't break the bank, just $350 on parts

Hey, everybody! This game will ultimately end at the house of marcbud but he is letting me borrow it for a few weeks to use in league play over in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Below please find some fun pics of the pick up and ultimate installation.

This is the first pin of marcbud and myself! Although, to be fair, he is my father and the real owner of the game. Check out the pics below!
