Quoted from Colsond3:

Well throw another damn shrimp on the barbie...that thing looks great! Game looks as cherry as a WH2O can get.

Shrimp lol. Shame I had to sell it but you can't have them all. Although this one carries some of the most regret as it's such a great game.

Got a call my parts are ready for pickup. Now to find the time to actually go get them.

I hate waiting

Wow, I'm glad this thread caught my attention. I looked at the first two pages and think I want to do a few of my pins.

About how much is everyone paying for legs, side armor, hinge and lock down bar?
By looking, most do a two stage with base powder and then clear powder.
Any issues with sandblasting off chrome or previous powder coatings?

Thanks... I'm on board with this and am digging it.

#908 2 years ago

Actually chrome is easier to sand blast then powder coat but they both clean up perfect.

#909 2 years ago

My legs and wire ramps had rust on them when I got the pin so it was a no brainer

For legs, LD bar, siderails (w/ two carriage bolts), and hinges (w/ two bolts), you're usually going to spend anywhere from $110 to $200, depending who you use and whether shipping charges are included. I usually just get new siderails when I PC parts, due to dings and damage already there, potential damage when removing them, left over double sided tape, etc. It's just easier, and only adds $45 or so.

Got my BSD parts back from Ron at Pinball Plating & More last Thursday...and had to get them on. He does excellent work. Finally had some time today, so here was the chronology (well, more or less...10.7% will make you forget to pick up the phone to shoot a pic here and there):

Most I've seen have just been chromed out, I wouldn't mind seeing some powder coated, I'm thinking I might do mine with some sort of UV reactive blue/purple inspired by the forest scene at night.

#921 2 years ago

Let me ask you guys ,
When you choose a powder coat color , do you also choose a clear coat with a fleck or pearl effect. Or just clear coat the powder coat color chosen. Say that ten times fast!

Legs, hinges, armor, lockdown and shooter housing all match, but lighting makes most pieces look black in the pics

Are all your games powdered?

You have some great candidates for them for sure. They'd look fantastic on GB, ST or MET for sure.

Can the lock down bar and side rails be nickel plated? How does it compare to chrome plating in looks and cost?

Chrome is sometimes too much bling and nickel is usually a few notches below in shine.
