I like the contrast.
Plus the second you touch powdercoated bolts with a wrench the coating on the corners comes off. Stink!
Can always get soft socket or plastic socket. Option links below.
Probably pretty great! The lighting is terrible in these pictures, the chrome looked a lot nicer in person. I already have a red translucent apron w/ some neat lighting effects in my IM, so it really ties everything together nicely when turned on. The chrome would look great on my Met, and the purple would look cool in RBION. I was going to swap a while ago when I remembered the rails have a giant Metallica logo etched into them haha.
I did see a Ripley's with a bright orange and it looked really nice.
Just recently had my Getaway parts powder coated red. Shitty photo but it really does look amazing. The f14 is just vinyl wrapped. Wasnt sure if i was going to like yellow or not so decided to just wrap it for now.
idk. I woulda went with red to match the PF and t-molding.
Or maybe the t-molding needs to go black.
It's better than the stainless... but doesn't flow to me because of the tmolding.
But hey; it's his machine - as long as he's happy
Sorry if already asked, but i'm about to remove hardware and would like advance tips for removing the siderails without mucking up my cab decals. Thanks.
Here's another machine I've just done ...
Shrek usually has a yellowish powdercoat. It sort of matches Shreks face on the front of the cab. However when I bought this machine, someone had given the metalwork a shitty rattlecan paintjob in some awful green. And you can't match the original powder colour here, nothing was even close really.
So it was blasted back, and I went with a "swamp green" .. cause Shrek lives in a swamp.
Came up ok ... everyone seems to like it.
Quoted from HOOKED:
Met Pro. There are screws along the rail. Is there adhesive along the edge that has to be removed as well? Looking to replace with lollipop rails and then powdercoat. Prior owner had installed a plate around the flipper buttons... After measuring the lollipop rails on my Star Trek Premium, it looks like it should cover everything and even the three screw holes appear to line up. Thanks.
Im actually doing my gbpro in something very close to thst green, stay tuned parts should be back any day
Quoted from J85M:
If that awesome green is anything to go by, lets see that game room
I don't have a good camera but here's one that shows the bl carpet kinda good. I even put 21 inch florescent bl's on the underside of each game so the carpet lights up perfect under them, you can kind of see it in the picture.
