Edit** the part now has no magnets and hooks to the back of the metal decal bracket by backing off the nut, inserting the mod, then tightening. I also made a shop to sell them. It made it easier to keep track of orders. Thank you.

I never could read that decal on the left side of the house on Elvira House of horrors. So I got magnifying glass and made a 3-D model of the decal. It is held in place by two magnets and a clip on the back to keep it from shaking loose during gameplay, I made a handful of them, but I’m not sure if this is something too many people would be interested in. I matched the colors on the existing decal and took a picture with my old crypt front plastic to show a comparison for the color. They take me a bit of time to make, but did not know if there is enough interest for me to make more of them. I figured I would sell it for $25.

I’m dropping off a few at the post office today. Inbox me your address and I’ll let you know what they tell me it will be.

Looks great! I might be interested in BRK version?
The magnets really hold? Was thinking maybe make the grass half, leave room for a screw hole, and use the screw currently in place or a larger one to hold it better with no magnets? Otherwise it’s great looking!

I tried making one that was thin enough to use the screw, but it looked silly because of how thin it had to be. I then tried to recess a spot on the model for the screw, but it also looked weird with a giant chunk missing out of the left side.

I have had mine on my machine for over a week now, and it only tilted to the right on me once. I made the clamp on top tighter after that and it does not move. I did start sticking a very thin layer of that grippy fabric on the back as extra insurance and it feels like it’s screwed in now.

any way they could be thicker to cover the entire sign? you can see the plastic behind it.

I tried that originally but thought I dident like the way it looked. I liked the blue next to it but it was just personal preference to be honest it would work both ways.

I have changed the design a bit to take away the magnets. Now it wont move even if a ball hits it.

That looks amazing! But did you make a certain color for black and white addition?

I put one of these in my BRK and it looks awesome! Installation was a breeze too. I've gotten a few mods lately that look good but installation was unnecessarily complicated. Not this one. Great work!
