Okay, now you guys are making me nervous!
I bought a POTC recently that had a TiltTopper on it already. I must say I was impressed with the overall quality and design and it just made the pin look better.
I decided to go ahead and order (2) more of his designs, which included the IJ and ST toppers. The wait wasn't bad and I'm impressed with the quality of it, although I had to buy a splitter for my ST topper from Mezel Mods in order to hook it up right so it could work. I think he should have mentioned you needed the splitter from Mezel if the connection already had a mod hooked up to it already, but no big deal. My brother purchased a topper for his TSPP pinball and received it as well and is overly pleased with the look and design as well. Upon checking out our recent orders, I must say Stern is the only one who can beat his quality (in regards to incorporating extra features and light show), but Tilt blows Stern out of the water in regards to the price.
I loved his original design he made for the MET topper (the one with Sparky being more dominant) and I contacted and asked him if he could possibly re-produce another one since it was classified as special order and out of production. I received notification stating he still had the mold and could make one for me, so I sent in the money. Again, I had no past problems with him in fulfilling the orders, but I was told in a recent email order inquire the MET topper was completed and he forgot the topper needed a special light control module in order for it to work properly. I was told the part should be in last week, so I'm patiently waiting for the topper.
He was a little late in responding to my emails (usually a day or two), but he did respond to them eventually. One time being out of town for a wedding and the other being the shop was closed for vacation.
I do hope and trust he will make things right on the other orders mentioned above. After all, the toppers are really good IMO and I will keep you posted how my ordeal turns out.
One last thing in case the owner is reading this or a person is on the fence of purchasing one of the toppers. The installation instructions are difficult to find and it needs to be updated. I recall the site directed the instructions to Mezel Mods or someplace (I can't recall exactly) and I never could find them. My brother figured it out on his TSPP topper and was able to tell me how to install it. It was an easy installation once you figure out where it goes and I'm not the brightest crayon in the box when it comes to electronics, but "Hey", at least I try. It would help cut down on the frustration on new topper owners.
Good luck to everyone.
