Can you add another for downunder? Count me in if there's any left. I'm ready to buy now. Also, for further batches I'd recommend reaching out to resellers and perhaps only doing a minimum sale of 50 or 100 units. Sure, you'd have to sell them at a reduced price, but you'd only have a single transaction and shipping cost to worry about, and the distribution logistics become their responsibility. No more email or thread monitoring - which is the real time eater. You could simply sign off the thread with a message...all sales enquiries can now be directed to ...www.(pinball spares supplies).com

Also, if you ever did this again you could try a kickstarter-like crowd funded project.

Thanks for the hard work. I pick up my first TS tomorrow.

Thanks Aurich. I'm paid up. Another request/suggestion I'd like to put out there is whether you think it would be a nice touch to sign and date say, the back bottom of the translite, and add a series number such as 95/110.

It is after all a piece of art, and for the collectors among us it adds another element of provenance and perhaps value to the machine - especially if this is the only run you do. Maybe something small with a sharpie that fits in a 2"x2" area? Thoughts Pinsiders?

Mine arrived unscathed in Sydney on Wed. Will install this weekend. Looks great just holding it up to the light. The way certain elements just "pop" like his eyes and the street lamp look beautiful. Thanks Aurich, well done.

Quoted from Aurich:

Did a little trading with Mike Chestnut.

Sweet. It looks quite dark, which I like. I've read somewhere else on here about nickel as well - is that the dark one perhaps.

Quoted from Aurich:

You're thinking of the black nickel. No, mine is straight up chrome, mirror finish, and bright, but it's so shiny it picks up all the dark reflections around it, like the cabinet itself.

Got it, thanks. I'll probably do the same and would love some jade grips. Now where to get those?

Is that a subwoofer under there? How do you do that?

You won't be disappointed Shadbros.

I've been wanting to do this for a while to give people an idea of where the lights are behind the translight. For the best results, the trick is to use a combination of light types, including the flex types as Aurich has pointed out. Hope it helps someone.
