Ramp decals or the plastics?

I spent about 45 hours and photoshopped the plastic set a year ago and a fellow on eBay has the set available.

He is also here on pinside. And has posted in this thread. vbobrusev

I had contacted pps as well, and Despite my best efforts over a year, nothing happened. Same with Cpr even though I offered them the files.

Good luck!

Here is a scan of the ramp decal curtesy of Freeplay40, I have not, and don’t know when I will have a chance to reproduce it. Hopefully this will help us out with somebody that has some extra time

Cool, thanks guys. We are always working on bringing some old tooling back to life.
I got my free play 3 piece ramp set today. I didn’t need them but figured I’d get them while available for future use in case. I did notice they are thicker than originals and that’s a good thing. Prob put them on after the decals are available

This got me wondering if PPS was planning on doing the playfield decals too?

Just making a mod announcement. M&M Creations began making repro MRS' in mid-2019, but only announced on the RFM page (they are handmade and we didn't want to get overrun with orders). We've been slowly branching out to other pin clubs that utilize this crazy unobtanium switch....the MRS stands for Magnetic Reed Switch - and they are also found in CV, SC, NGG, SWE1 and CC. MRS' went unobtanium half a dozen years ago or so - so my partner and I at M&M Creations decided to remake them. From that we modified the MRS to fit the CFTBL whirlpool so that one can remove the Cherry switch that the ball smacks as it rotates - this was a popular mod to do, using the original MRS, but now Creech owners could have an MRS that was custom fit. Well the same concept has been applied to the Transporter bowl - the results of which are in the pic below. Now, we colored that switch body GREEN for easier viewing - but in reality the switch is black. It is plug and play and is self-adhering to the bowl - in essence identical to what we've done with Creech. We wanted to hit the club up to gauge interest as we tool up to make a run of some of them.....you'll find plenty of testimonial on the Creech forum - and with the new ramps having been made - the timing is good. Just PM to be put on the list! Thanks!

thats a neat idea, I'll take a closer look at my switch soon to see if the MRS would be a more beneficial add-on, I just put in a new switch in that bowl

It's a neat little mod that allows the ball to do it's thing in the bowl - Creech folks love it for the same reason - fun to watch the ball go 'round and round....plus the switch is contactless - thus long life span....

My right side GI is out again. I thought I had fixed this but now it's back. Checked and or replaced fuses on interconnect board and replaced the gi relay board under playfield with a brand new one. In the past about every 50 games or so a fuse would pop and I would replace. Now nothing.

did you pull the interconnect board and reflow the header pins for the gi, and rebuild its connector? (sorry if you have and I missed it.) also, if the gi fuse is popping, then something sounds like its shorted out. Im guessing your well versed in all of this as it were

yea, board was pulled and worked on by one of the best in the biz, connectors repinned, etc... I thought I had it fixed but now they are completely out with NO fuse popping. new relay board put in also to make sure nothing was up with it.

Pull the fuse that drives this G.I. string out, then set your dmm to measure amperage and measure across the fuse Holder with the game on.
What is the reading in your dmm? Do the lamps light up now?
If you see amperage building up fast over 5amps pull your leads out fast!!! You may have a short!

I thought I had replaced all the bad connectors, pulled the GI connector and it was a little burnt underneath, repinned it and fixed. thanks man
