Quoted from mark532011:
That’s very cool. So you are using the vinyl as-is rather than using it as a paint mask?
That is correct. I’m using oracal 651 vinyl.
So I cleaned up and repainted the light board yesterday... It turned out pretty good.
I typically do not replace the light sockets on the backboard unless they are really bad. In this case I just used a dremel tool to clean them out. I then replaced all the GI with LEDs. The GI circuits always pull the most amperage and produce the most heat, so I like to reduce the load on the circuit (and thus the heat it produces) by installing LEDs. I did not put LEDs in the light matrix circuits because it relies alot on fading when doing light shows.
I think this one is just about done. I may do one more update with pictures of the final product early next week.
Regardless of what is being worked on, seeing anyone so thoroughly invested in anything (let along pinball, something I'm a huge fan of) is truly wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing this. Your Sorcerer looks absolutely amazing.
I just finished going through all of the comments and images and for some reason, this reminds me of a master smith forging legendary armor or weapons and being allowed to watch it happen.
Or maybe I read too many sci-fi/fantasy novels Thanks again
Quoted from swanng:
If the cost is worth it to you, it's worth it, I suppose.
Not only worth it to Alan, but worth it to me too.
This machine is coming to Australia to be the jewel in my collection. My grail pin and the best one i have seen before.
I'm sure i won't see it for 6 months or so but that will make it all the more sweet when i do finally get it.
I owe Alan a debt of gratitude for taking the risk on freighting so far when it must have been much simpler to sell it locally. Thanks again mate.
Thanks for the vote of confidence guys..
Yes, this machine will be going over the Pacific to Australia in the near future. I'm glad it will go to a collection where it will be played and appreciated.
I’m hoping for some more detailed pictures of the finished game. Looks amazing. Once my playfield is done at cpr I will start my restoration. This thread will help me a lot.
Thanks mate, already standing at the end of the driveway hopping from one foot to the other holding my dick. Can't wait to see the truck and if you don't mind i'll post a few closing pics as well when it gets here in a few months.
If i can ever do anything for you let me know. Might be able to ship some koalas or something.
