Just wondering Ane there any "musts" for silverball mania?

Eg. LEDs, plastic protectors, etc.

I'm thinking about swapping all the red posts out with clear. And put retro LEDs in the G.I. already. And have titan clear rubbers coming.

Anyone have pics of things they have done?

Quoted from lowbeau67:

Also check the caps on your standup targets and especially the rollovers in horseshoe. Mine were clipped and when I replaced them the game registered all hits consistently.

All caps were replaced by the previous owner, everything works 100% now.
It only had 4 bad lamp sockets, and 3 dead scrs on the lamp driver board.
It was an easy fix.

I just want to see what others have done to dress up this already beautiful game.

I think I might put star post lights and clear or blue posts in the horseshoe.

I have clear titans coming.

Put clear and blue posts in. Titans should be here soon. Just enjoying playing it now.

Got titans in today.

Would anyone recommend not installing resistors to the cpu controlled lamp sockets.
So they will support LEDs.

Or do you think just buying this for $46 U.S + $45 shipping to Canada would be easier.


$120 CDN, for the boards, or $10 and about an hour's time the resistor method.

If I do add resistors. I will put a sticker in the head to let any future owner know what's up.

Quoted from Atari_Daze:

I used these exact boards on my SBM, definitely recommend!
You may want to check directly with Hans, his shipping might be less than Marco.

Thanks for the link. I'll check on shipping, and I'll think about it. I have the time to do it myself. But I was thinking if I end up getting another bally or stern it would be good to have.
