    Quoted from Jdawg4422:

    hey crash could you possibly share how you mount everything?

    Could we use the mounting kit for the Stern games from the ColorDMD site?
    http://shop.colordmd.com/pinbits-clear-shield-and-mounting-standoffs-for-new-stern-cabinets/

    It might take some customizing but this seems like a good start.

    Some very helpful information in this thread and in the other SMartDMD threads as well.

    About 2 months ago I bought a ColorDMD for my Mustang knowing that there was no support for my pin yet. I wanted the higher res screen and the ability to change the colors was nice. Even though I have been using pinball browser to edit my songs in the Mustang, I was leary to do this mod. Now, I cant wait any longer....I just ordered all of the parts and I am looking forward to doing this project. But I do have a few questions.

    1. Since I already have the ColorDMD screen in place, can I use it and connect it to the SmartDMD board. Not trying to save money here, its that I already have it installed with an adapter and if I dont have to take it out, I wont

    2. Colorized ROM for the Mustang...I have seen the youtube vid and seen it mentioned in here as a supported ROM. Can someone share it with us here?

    Thanks

    Quoted from Crash:

    I'm guessing ColorDMD doesn't have a 14-pin ribbon cable loop-through. In that case you would have to make your own vampire tap cable to add a connection mid-way.

    Thats what I assumed Crash, thanks for confirming. I ordered all of the parts and will build it out completely.

    Now I need to find someone who has colorized Mustang.......
