Quoted from NPO:

All done with the PF and the GI. Took me a good solid 4 hours, but it's done, and man - does this baby pop.
All bulbs are CoinTaker frosted bulbs - nothing extraordinarily fancy or unique.
Next - to install the mountain - in the morning!

Looks great! How did you get such smooth and steady video? Looks like a combination of tripod, tracks and steadycam! Impressive!

That's a very nice compliment! Honestly, that was just me holding the camera and slowly walking and moving around the machine.

Guess my arms had gone catatonic after a while .

A quick tip for those changing out to LEDs. When you go underneath the PF, you might think "Gee, sure hope I can keep track of which bulbs I've changed out versus those I haven't...." Well, here's what I did. Change a bulb to LED, and when you install the holder back into the PF, just turn your ratchet so only 3-4 of the threads catch. That way, you can visually tell that the screw is not all the way into the PF, and you know you've done that one. Then do the whole machine - made the process MUCH faster without having to double-guess myself!

Yup looks great. I led all my games, for the looks and for the power savings. My game will be here in a week or so and I would like to order the leds now so I have them ready to put in. Can you give me a count of what colors and type for the pf and bb. I want to color match the inserts for sure. Thanks

For the apron center drain I have been putting a Cometpinballbulb white 6.3v, 7 led strip there and it really lights up the flipper area.

Got new apron cards printed at Kinkos - $1.59 on gloss paper!

Looks so good buddy, I knew she was going to a good home. You convinced me to start tinkering with led.

No .

That's awesome, dude. It's well worth it. The low heat and less current helping keep fuse holders, molex connectors, and circuit components from melting or weakening.

I know some people here asked about what bulbs I used and how many. Here's my unfortunate answer: I don't know. I ordered 220+ bulbs based on the manual, and I can tell you I prolly overshot by a good 20 LEDs. What I did: searched the manual and counted what bulbs went where. Once I had a final count, I added anywhere from 5-10 extra bulbs of each kind and color.

Here is the order I put in with CoinTaker. Remember, I did NOT use every single bulb - I had a good 20 bulbs I ended up not using. That doesn't bother me because I am all about having spares.

40 | CW44F | 44/47 COOL WHITE FROSTED | |

5 | B44F | 44/47 BLUE FROSTED | |

10 | G44F | 44/47 GREEN FROSTED | |

10 | O44F | 44/47 ORANGE FROSTED | |

10 | R44F | 44/47 RED FROSTED | |

31 | O555F | 555 ORANGE Frosted | |

44 | R555F | 555 RED Frosted | |

10 | G555F | 555 GREEN Frosted | |

5 | Y555F | 555 YELLOW Frosted | |

50 | W555F | 555 WHITE Frosted | |

Yes that does look sharp back there. Put a couple of small skiing people on the snow.

Quoted from NPO:

I got regular frosted bulbs at 0.79 a piece from CT. I already see a tiny bit of ghosting in the traffic light.

All CoinTaker Premium 2 Leds in the inserts of HS2 is a Must .. Well Worth the X-tra $$ !!

For pop lights try the Comet brand red "Crystal Fan" bulbs, they're great. Your Getaway is coming along nicely, mine arrives this coming Monday.

Got new bolts for the traffic light. Here's what to use in case yours is wobbly like mine would get after a couple direct hits to the post in front of it.

Also, installed new PF glass trim. Was so weird - all 5 screws were installed in the old one, but when I installed the new one, I had to drill a couple new pilot holes. Didn't make any sense; I compared the old and new ones side by side with the holes lining up exactly - oh well. New holes drilled, trim looks awesome!

That donut shop looks a world better than the stainless steel!!

#74 5 years ago

More goodies - got some flipper button protectors for the cabinet. I know my abilities to paint match are crap - even for black - so figured I'd be safe than sorry:

Whose got two thumbs and just got an almost complete set of plastics with an extra traffic light complete with circuitboard? This guy... right here!

ebay.com link

Didn't even think about it at $115. $65 for the traffic light alone at Marco.

#76 5 years ago

Oh crap, now that's a score. How are you liking the game? Did you see my topic "DIY lighting mods for Getaway".

#77 5 years ago

I might have miss this, but you might also want to install upgraded speakers, makes a huge difference. At least it did on mine.

I just did - those are some nice mods especially the Turbo Boost gauges. I will probably do that one - looks fricking awesome!!!

#79 5 years ago

Instead of the red pop bump caps, I used green to make it look like tree tops when you see the green trees in that area of the playfield and it breaks up all the red. I like it much better.

#80 5 years ago

I put these on mine. I really like them. First pict. still has one reg. bulb in to show the diff.

Thanks! I actually just bought the ones from Bay Area Amusements (half the price), and added a few things as well. BTW, I did the police lights on the top and they look amazeballs.

#85 5 years ago

Wow, looks great! Nice Getaway! Have fun!

Bayareaamusements has them as well. Just ordered a set and they were here 2 days later via USPS Priority mail. About the same price too.

Hey NPO - where did you get the Donut Heaven and the Mountain?

Quoted from mulder2010:

Donut Heaven = Mezelmods
Mountain = they don't make them anymore... You can try a WTB if someone had an extra

#89 3 years ago

I hope someone will make the mountain mod again.
