    Quoted from vid1900:

    You can scan the set, then make a translucent set in PhotoShop, for extra pop

    Yeah I think I'm going to try that for my IMDN ones.

    Should we be anticipating 'Vid's Guide To Translucent Drop Target decals'?!

    Quoted from Fytr:

    I used a 3 segment 5v LED strip directly behind the targets to light them up, connected to the nearby GI bulb. They go on and off with the GI as well which is nice for Fear of the Dark mode and others. They are bit bright at the moment so may experiment with other LED colours and placement in the future to refine the look a bit.
    Overall these are fantastic and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!

    Looks awesome! Check out Comet dimmers if you want to dial that light strip down.

    Scan, import into PS (or whatever program you like), use Quick Selection Tool to encircle areas, hit Delete key to remove color, print on clear adhesive film, cover with Mylar to protect ink.

    You can also fill areas with translucent colors for stain glass look, if you don't want it black&white

    Yeah I'm going to scan mine and then try printing them on clear labels in colour. Should look pretty good and still let some light through.

    I guess that's a pretty quick guide - Thank you, Vid!

    #A-3944 is not currently available from Pinball.Center in Clear.

    A-3944 (Classic Bally Drops) is currently being manufactured in Germany in the same frosted material as our other drops reviewed here. I hope to have some good news in a month or two.
    Right now; I don't foresee needing to do another order in a month... but we'll see.

    I will be in for about 10 x 80's bally drops

    Nice, I hope they are just as durable as the existing ones are!

    Also have some other unique product on order as a market test; I'll do a separate announcement when I have the products on site and ready to order.

    How great would it be to find someone to hot stamp the generic artwork onto these? For instance the Bulls eye targets were used in several games.....be great to get these lucid drop targets with the hot stamped artwork!

    Not something I'm going to do as I have no contacts to get this done.
    Given there are already stickers available from Marco; I don't see the value.
