Does anyone know if there was a light tube over the light bulb behind the 100 point bulls Eye Target from the factory? I've recently worked on two games that had a yellow tube over this bulb? Not sure if this was factory original or added later! Maybe someone out there has an unmolested game that can provide info.........

Yes, a lot of those games had them and used different colors in different areas. PBR sells replacements.

These are hard plastic lamp sleeve/shade. They are 1-1/2” long and can be cut to the desired length.

When I bought my Sing Along it was a pretty unmolested (i.e., dirty) survivor and it came with a yellow tube on the 100pt target light. It's important because that particular bulb is very visible from the players angle and otherwise there would be way too much glare.

Even with the light shield on, you can see some of the glare coming from the light on my Sing Along.

That bulb can be a bit distracting. I put a spacer between the bottom of the PF and socket to lower the bulb.

Did not realize it originally had a shade over it. Need to check IPDB to see what it looks like.

If this is the case I am going to add one to mine

I placed colored bulb covers to cut down on all the glare.

I had quite a few Gottliebs w/different colored lamp sleeves under the ball arch...original.

Heatwave, That's why I asked the question, just got my Sing Along up and running with a new Wade Playfield and the Glare was what prompted me to ask the question. I just installed a yellow tube over the light and yes, there is way less glare in the eye's. Thanks to all that replied....

Good deal. I bet that playfield looks fantastic. Sing Along is probably my all-time favorite game from a backglass/playfield/cabinet art standpoint. Makes me smile just looking at it! Great player as well.

I went all the way with this one, stenciled and repainted the cabinet with the correct lacquer paint, new siderails and front metal trim with a repo backglass.....Buffed all the hareware ect....I agree, a nice piece of artwork, a really a cool game...

Sorry for the Wizard pic, don't know how to edit. Flippers on Sing Along have since been adjusted to correct position. Wizard swap should be done soon and Atlantis will be next!

My machine came with new rubbers, bumpers, switches etc to fit. It also had 4 coloured tubes (2red,2 yellow) so presumably came with the rebuild kit ordered by the previous owner? I had no idea where these tubes should go but I too had a problem with the glare from the target. I tried one of the yellow sleeves over it but found it wanted to drop down below the playfield. Not a problem to prop it up but I would then have 3 'spare' tubes. So I put a red and yellow on the lights either side of the flippers and painted the bulb in the target red,white and blue to match the target. It worked and looks quite cool

My SA was pretty original (i.e. dirty), and I found two red & two yellow tubes under the ball arch. I think they add a nice touch so I kept them on.

I'm going to see how one looks on the 100 pt target.

There are also coloured #47/44 light bulbs, red, and yellow for sure and possibly other colours. The sleeves do help to diffuse the light and reduce the glare. On the 70's Gottlieb pins there are tubes on the bulbs behind the coin labels.
