you did a lot of detail on this....the leg bolts, coin box, lightening bolts on the trim, shooter rod plate....damn!

#1003 2 years ago

Nice stef! Getting ready to do my WW and can't decide on color(s).

#1004 2 years ago

Beautiful, but maybe too much white. I would have went with a chrome coin door.

thanks ! i ve seen a white water in blue it really pops!
and chrome matches perfectly blue cabinet.

#1009 2 years ago

Can't beat chrome for a lot of games. I really like powder on SOME games but it doesn't work on all.
For me personally i haven't seen a game with white that i like. It just seems to in your face as opposed to something that really blends with the game.

You got that right, I'm about to find out how all chrome is gonna look on my ST Pro.....well not the coin door anyway.

Should look awesome Paul the new films are very clean and clinical looking, loads of white and chromes with lots of lights/leds and lcd screens, chrome should look great on your pro be sure to post pics as soon as you get it back on its legs.

I already have a regular LE apron that has the flasher cut outs that has been chromed, not a ST LE apron so the chromed lolly pop rails and the rest should look good. I have to wait till a friend with a good camera comes over to post some pictures.

#1013 2 years ago

I am a pinball and car guy. Chrome looks good on everthing.

#1014 2 years ago

Quick question, how are you guys coating your coin doors? Are you completely disassembling them? Leaving the door on the hinge and removing everything else? Or just removing things off the back of the door?

Thanks for the help!

I removed all coin mechs, coin door and coin door housing .
The coin mechs are really pretty straight forward just take pics.
You will also need to remove the bill validation panel. 4 screws

Gotcha, so you removed the door from the hinge? Is that hard? I've done the complete rest of the door but not the door from the frame.

That should come up very nice Paul. Love to se the pix when it's done. I had STLE and was considering chrome but couldn't bring myself to go over the great job that Stern did with the powdercoating on this game. A bit like Hulk LE it was really top quality or at least mine was. The same can't be said for my MMR. It is only basic powder, even if they cleared over the top to lift it and give it some gloss like GoT would have been better imho. Remember mate pix or it didn't happen.

Leave the hinge connected to the door but removed from the housing , 4 screws inside left edge of door/housing .

Hulk and XMENLE look fantastic, curious what colour would look just as good on your POTC, Gold?

My buddy used to make us play with gloves on. LOL.

CV looks sweet, so does Joker Poker and Royal Flush. We had a chrome decked out CV at my shop last year, I should've taken it home. I started a resto thread on my Bally Vampire, and I was considering chrome. Please go into the thread and add a chrome vote to my pole... I could use some back up. All the purists are voting/telling me to keep it original, but some of the metal is pretty tarnished. Looking at your games, especially an EM, it's definitely making me lean towards chrome.

Yes I wouldn't be able to bring myself to getting rid of the STLE powder too. I'll see what I can do for pictures. Oh it's happening.

Anyone here gone all-in and pulled the hinge pin out to split the hinge before powder coating?

#1027 2 years ago

Erg... edit, not reply.

#1028 2 years ago
Quoted from Blackjacker:

I "think" that's what the pros do then put a piece of silicon tape in each slot to keep the powder from getting in and gumming up the works. Just a guess here.

#1029 2 years ago
Quoted from Blackjacker:

I didn't see the need, but I would guess that it would make getting the hinge back together almost impossible with the powder on every little connecting point of the hinge .

Having the powder all over the hinge and pin would cause the hardened pc to break and chip. With the tape between all the slots the powder can't get in there so no chipping and once the 2 hinge pieces are back together you can't see any coating is missing cuz the 2 pieces are sliding metal on metal.

Since you kept the pin in, how does your hinge look post powder coating B?

It's the lack of $$$ and once I did my ST Pro I KNOW I'd HAVE to have it for my Avatar LE.

Finished my GB Pro "Ecto" (white/chrome/blue lights). Replaced the T-molding with chrome. Shout outs for Pinballlife's white armor package, Ron's chrome coin door at Pinballplatingandmore, Timebandits transparent blue apron lit with Comet's Matrix Blue Frosted strips, Doug's speaker inserts and Joey's shooter rod/housing, to name just a few...

I'm happy with the way it turned out and glad to support our community.

If there was ever a machine that deserved "Rock Star over Black Ink", this was it. I can tell you it looks 100x better in person. Found a local guy, Mark, at Fresh Start Custom Painting in Palatine to avoid lots of shipping. Does great work and nice to deal with.

Looks great on that game. Is the apron done too?

#1043 2 years ago

No. Stock. Looks ok in black, but keeping my eye out for a nice metallic spray.

The rustoleum black metallic is sweet. Nice and glossy with a little flake look. Lowes has it for sure, I'm sure home depot too
