    Cool. I'll get to ordering a set soon. Thanks!

    I already have your set on my Stern ST Premium, but that damn blue led is intermittent. Gotta take a look at that.

    Titan Pinball has some of these pop bumper bodies available in their booth at Houston Arcade Expo This weekend.

    Additionally; they have a supply of the Translucent Pop Skirts and my Early SolidState Pinball Buttons / Housings.

    Bump for some folks who have installed these for more pics in games. I just ordered some orange for my I500, but starting to wonder if that will be too much orange. Would love to get some ideas from other projects.

    I ordered 3 of the red translucent bodies and red skirts for my AC/DC premium machine today.
    I plan to rebuild my pop bumpers and install these.
    They look cool in the photos.

    Rebuilt my pop bumpers on AC/DC with these red translucent bodies and skirts. Also replaced the coils, fiber yoke plates, metal yoke plates, leaf switches and springs in the process. Rebuild on the AC/DC Premium was rather difficult because the right ramp and several plastics had to be removed in the process. Took me 2 days, but I was not in a hurry. I think they look pretty cool and they are much more lively and powerful with the new parts. Found 2 of the metal yoke plates broken in the process. I also cleaned everything and you can now see the clean areas under the translucent skirts.

    Thank you Zitt.

    You're welcome - thanks for the business.
    Hopefully more people take advantage of the translucent skirts and bases.
    I just now have complete stock of the skirts which include "points".

    I love these beautiful bodies. Once I found out these were available I ordered them for my DE Laser War. At the time I ordered these matching skirts were not available (except in red) so I installed the original white skirts. Once I found out that the matching skirts were available I ordered those to go with the cool pop bumper bodies. But DE used a black mounting cup for their pop bumpers and that black plastic took some of the sparkle out of the skirts and since I was using Brite Caps Evo from Pinball Life, the bodies really did not read well at all. The good news is that there is room to mount some LEDs under the pinball skirt and they shine all the way up illuminating both the skirt and the body. Lollipop colors are so cool and I really like how the worked on my LW.

    Can't wait to try these out!
    Pinball Life carries them, not sure if they come from the same place

    They do not. In some circles; imitation is the sincerest form of flattery... But not as far as I'm concerned.
    At least the customer wins with reduced pricing and a better color selection.
