Just installed these. Super easy install due to great instructions. Thanks Jean-Luc, these are a must for the brite-mod caps!

Awesome! Super happy they worked out for you

Nice work. I think for the right game, this is a good solution to use with ring LED pop caps.

Yeah, really need to match the themes. I ordered some LED-Rings for my ST:TNG and I have chrome cannons so I think a star trek insignia will work great for the design. Can also use Red Chrome instead of silver. Also will be making decals for LED-caps on Fishtales "Green or Blue chrome". Just got the caps in the mail so will design the decals sometime next week. Personally, I can not use these LED caps without the decals. The LED's are too bright by themselves.

1 week later

pmed you to buy a set.

#56 5 years ago

Just added ST: TNG cap decals & Williams Decal to the first thread

2 weeks later
#57 5 years ago

Do you think you could do some with the bolt from Black Knight 2000? Either a single one, or a circle of them like the lightning wheel?

Very cool man.

Sounds awesome. I will try something tonight. It may be better with a single bolt but I will see what I can do. The more I cut the more unstable the vinyl gets and the more difficult it is to apply to the cap.

#63 5 years ago

I was thinking the Williams W in the center and the bolts around the edge but it kind of defeats the purpose of the decal and looking at your application instructions it would be difficult to line it up. Thanks for looking into it, I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Yeah, I thought of that as well. But the out ring is not that wide, it would make the outer ring buckle and be really hard to apply to the cap. As well, you would still be blinded by the light if we have bolt holes in it

I made 2 examples. The second one may or may not work. I have to test cut it first, but I think it will hold up. You will just have to be careful and use a bit more windex than normal.

Let me know if either of them work for you and I can cut them.

Quoted from NextoPin:

I agree on the bolt. I'd like to see 2 lightning bolts and 1 BK Helmet in a set

Quoted from Cheddar:

The BK Helmet will be tricky. Since this area is very small I have to simplify this a lot. Let me know if this works.
If this works, I can cut some examples and offer them. Same price, and you can pick the ones you like.

#68 5 years ago

These look great! I've been thinking about buying the britecaps...you just made up my mind.

When I get my T2 pin in and all the caps. I'll need a set for STTNG & T2 Do you think you could make a set for X-Files with a Blue or purple chrome? I'll be wanting a set of those as well. Something with the trademark X in the center?

#69 5 years ago

I can make custom designs to fit your pin yep The chrome vinyl that I have is the best choice because it is chrome underneath, however my blue,green,red are not. May just be because of different manufactures. But, if possible I recommend staying with standard chrome. You get the most reflection, other colors are darker and absorb light. And to be honest when you play the machine you don't really see "silver/chrome" You see the colors from the LED's and the lights near the caps more.

Sounds good, I'll be placing an order soon. So far I like what I see in the pics. If they look that good in my machines, I'll be ordering some sets for 6 other pins.....well maybe 5, I can't mess with KISS to much.

Modified the logo a bit, had to widen the gaps and smooth it out. But how about something like this for x-files.

#72 5 years ago

Reason I am not embedding the images. I rather keep my wire-frames less noticeable for tempted thieves. But I also dont want to waste my blade/vinyl on concepts that may not be desired/wanted. When we have some people who want them I will then cut examples and add them to the list. All I need is one person to give me green light on a concept and they will be added.

That looks perfect. When I get everything in, I'll place an order.
Thanks!!!

#74 5 years ago

Any ideas for IJ. I just added those pop bumper ring lights and I need something to tone them down. BTW, my T2 looks great now..Thanks. The best $7 I spent on anything pinball related!

#75 5 years ago

Ahhh been trying to get an IJ. I have my shadow for sale and I have to wait for it to sell first. Indiana Jones is my Holy Grail machine. The pop's are near the plane. Maybe a propeller. Or 3 skulls. 3 Indiana head silhouettes. I vote skulls.?

#76 5 years ago

I just made a page for future orders. No longer need to PM me for paypal information. The only thing different is I no longer can send as gift. So, I calculated the PayPal fee into the price.

If not a skull, how about Brotherhood of the Cruciform Sword Insignia?

Man, If you just made 1 then I wouldn't have to decide. Then I scroll down and there's another one! It's like being in the beer isle at the store! Look at this pic, see the yellow art around the pop bumpers? Is that something you can work with?

http://www.hihosoft.at/bk2k_flippermarkt/62.JPG

I LOVE both the bolt ones, the helmet is so so, but that's because of how it has to be made more than your skills. I'll be ordering some for sure, just want to see what you can come up with for that bumper art. Maybe that yellow pointy ring with a bolt in the center?

These are great, I think you will do well selling them.

Watermark them with your website name.

#79 5 years ago

Oh, and on the one with the 6 bolts, can you show me what it would look like with just 4 bolts? Thanks!

Definitely buy some, just need to decide. Thanks again for making these available.

Yeah, I will do that today. Thanks for the reminder.

Ahh yeah, pretty limited with what I can cut out in terms of detail. However, the detail isn't the problem, its weeding tiny little areas and having a decal that won't tear or curl up the second you try and lay it down. But yeah, the helmet is simplistic, thats for sure

So you are thinking the circle with the 4 bolts sticking out. One reminder is we cant have any floating objects. Unless you use transfer paper or you apply the bolt separately. Otherwise you need to have a connection point.

#81 5 years ago

Yea, the yellow "bolt rings" might be difficult given the space. I would like to see a 4 bolt version of the other one you made, I think it will go nicely with the "Bolt Rings" on the playfield.

Great idea just ordered a few sets

Quoted from Jean-Luc-Picard:

I spaced them out a bit compared to the 6 bolt design.

bk2k_4bolt.png 19 KB

I'm not being picky (I am, sorry) Can you place the bolts 90 degrees to each other? More like a + instead of an x but still 45 degrees rotated past the screw holes?

I'll be placing my order today, where's the best place to pickup the LED caps?

Thanks again for all your efforts.

#85 5 years ago

Not a problem, not picky. This is more balanced with the circle and makes more sense. Like this?
You can pick up the BriteCaps at PinballLife.

(4) bolt option added to the order page. I will update the photo with a real decal tonight.

Also, just wanted to make a note. I either cut/ship same day or within 48hrs. It all depends when I get home from work and am able to tackle orders. Now that we are using the order page I am able to mark your order shipped in paypal.

I love it. It's exactly what I meant.

I'm going to have to order a set of each because I can't decide.

Sweet! Glad it worked out.

Remember the photo is of the decal slightly bent so you get distortions. But everything is balanced, identical etc.

Can you make it so the bolts are all going in the same direction? It creates a funny asymmetrical shape in the middle.

lol, so many ways to position a lightning bolt haha.

#98 5 years ago

I think this would be awesome on F-14 as well. A bullseye target or an outline of the F-14?

Sorcerer would also look cool with these. Maybe the dragon head, a wand or something else from the playfield?

#99 5 years ago

Maybe this could be a solution for my High Speed cap issue???

#100 5 years ago
Quoted from Cheddar:

That does look better

Yep, I agree. Much better. I will update the cut example tonight.
