A previous owner did this amazing touchup work on it!!! Lmfao I think the cracks look pretty cool, at least it is original. Cool white LEDs behind the glass.

Actually looking at that picture there are white red and blue LEDs back there. Previous owner installed them throughout...I would of left it original but it does make this players pin look better I think.

Quoted from hodgesm0:

Now that we have our own thread, can someone please make some reproduction plastics!?!?

This is a much needed set of plastics. Took me 1 1/2 years to find a used set to replace the many broken pieces I had.

Now hodgesm0 can you post a picture of you're playfield in it's current state of missing one plasticness??

Quoted from hodgesm0:

Probably the worst looking playfield out there, but got the game dirt cheap, and it’s still a great playing game.[quoted image][quoted image]

Well hey, you don't play the artwork right? If they ever made a hardtop for this one I guess that would be an insta buy for you. So you love the game and your never selling it?

Quoted from hodgesm0:

This one is going to stay in my collection for a while.
Are you looking to sell that piece?

It was part of the set I found but mine was not broken. Has a small crack at one of the mounting holes and some scratches but it is complete. Could keep hoarding it just in case mine breaks but I don't think that is going to happen and you don't even have one. PM me your address and I will send it your way.

Plastic set finally complete![quoted image]

Great to see! That plastic is living the dream now

Actually kind of like the look of post apocalyptic destruction of your playfield, like the surface of an enemy base after it has been destroyed by those ships.

So if anyone is interested in adding a speech board with Firepower roms to their Firepower II it really is a fairly affordable mod. The game doesn't use all of the speech that the original did, but it's pretty neat anyway. The board w/ roms and ribbon cable is only $60 and available here...

You do need to make sure your sound board has the connector for the ribbon cable though or you cannot add the speech board.

Not affiliated with this company in anyway, this is what I added to mine and it worked out great once I figured out the jumper settings.

Quoted from ss-pinball:

Also, I'm one plastic shy of having a full set. 31-521-13 is the plastic that I need (Below/behind the curve on the exit side of the ramp). Once my set is complete, I'm going to try to get them scanned. Would love some help finding this, any leads would be appreciated.

You know I don't even know if my game has that plastic at all off hand, I will check after work. If it does, there is a small chance I have another one that is broken and I swapped out...or one that is complete even. Don't get your hopes up, but I am just saying maybe...

#69 11 months ago

Well nope I don't even have that plastic for craps sake!! Lol here I thought my set was complete all this time, lol. I actually have had a few times that the ball has been stuck between the wire rail and that rubber ring that the plastic covers.

If someone has a good picture of it I will use a broken piece to cut a temporary permanent replacement. Mindblow.

I have broken plastic with the black starry night background and am going to try to fabricate a piece based off this picture...

I put a colorchanging comet led under the blackout cup in Blackout. It has an opaque white base so it lights up nicely. For FPII you would either have to put the led up above behind the cup, or maybe the black plastic cup floor can be replaced with a white one. I might like to do that.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/blackout-club-fans-welcome/page/7#post-4283137

Have not had time to make that plastic due to a recent death in the family. Actually forgot about it all together, thanks for reminding me. Have the weekend off so it’s now on my to do list.

#75 10 months ago

Scaled the picture for a template. These broken pieces both have a curve in them...I can make a piece with either that will fit, but will not be the exact profile because of the curve. The longer one I could get the exact shape but would have an extra hole in the middle and wrong numbers on it. Better than nothing though. I have a couple longer pieces but I hate to chop an unbroken piece so I will make due with these.

Well I am no great fabricator but am pretty damn happy with how this turned out...

I was just in the zone that game, I have not even approached your best score since.

Quoted from Gorgar666:

....inlane rolls only, one notch Before end of the flipper....catch Then flip won’t do it...I’ve tried,! believe me.

Hmm...I can catch the ball on the right flipper and send it thru the ramp with an accurate shot.
