That came out looking stunning!!!!

Thanks Todd-This one was a lot of fun to do. It had not been serviced in many years so it took some elbow grease LOL.

Can you give a little more info on what LEDs you used? White for GI, with a few blues here and there it looks like. Cointaker or someone else? Any more info...got a bunch of pins (including X-Files) that I need to do.

Thanks

Sure TWITAMI would love to share!

For the GI - I used Cointaker Frosted Purple from the flippers up to the Right and left side FBI targets. I then continued with Blue Frosted for everything on the outside perimeter. I used Red Supers under the In lanes at the top by the pop bumpers (You could use Red Frosted as well). Then for all GI under the ramps and middle section I used Frosted White. I will post a picture without ramps of how the coloring came out. For the inserts and Flashers I used the Premium (Upgraded non ghosting) Super kit that Cointaker puts together. Only changes I made were I put Green Frosted Supers in the Alien Baby Chamber.

This thread helps to inspire me to go wild with the X-files that I'm getting today that is RUO (route use only) and restore it (within reason) to a damn good looking beater hahaha!

Hey Congrats on the pick up and let me know if you need any help. I got to know this machine pretty well doing the restore/upgrade and I have to admit I would love one myself. Not a bad machine at all!
