Seriously... Sparky.... Make some more tv's and trees. Please.
Just joined the club. After many moons of searching I finally found this dope example of a pinball party. Under 800 plays, not a scratch or speck of dirt to be found. Just got it waxed up, new rubbers all around just for kicks, and a new set of balls on board. She's a shooter.
I've ordered a few protection mods already and am eyeballing quite a few others. Give me a few months on this machine will be fully decked out.
I'm just happy to be here. Thanks for having me!
Finally got her all dialed in. Complete set of Comet GI with and ledocd on the field. Put in the Beer can, the I & S TV, the treehouse, lighted moes sign, all the decals one can find including comic book guys t-shirt, and all the protectors everywhere. Safe to say this game is fully decked out. Plays like a dream too. Yup, I'll be keeping this all the days of my life. Too bad it's impossible to do it justice with pics.
The Lisa and Maggie figures look great. And the bus too. On the prowl again, lol. Not a fan of the alien mod as it isnt the correct aliens! Ya know! For 75 bucks is it too much to ask for an actual little kang in the saucer!?
I like the cotton 'steam' idea but it looks like shit when I do it. The side art is a must too. All five stickers though I'm not head over heels about the speaker panel one. I did just order the parts to make some slick color changing buttons. I hope it's never truly finished.
I'm with ronaldvg... Never have too many thangs attached to a tspp. I mean.... It is an effing party.

My simpsons is about to be powedercoated
Tell me more about this powder coating. Is it difficult to tear down for such a job? seems one would be left with a legless pinball machine sitting on the floor for a week. What are the costs typically? That yellow looks damn sharp.
Don't think you'd find many who'd argue your synopsis t-800. ?
On another note, to pat ledocd on the back a bit more, I installed Comet Flux leds, ya know, the expensive af ones, in my avengers table today. While the result is mildly put, bad ass, compared to incandescents, especially in the GI with comets op-max bulbs, there is still yet that certain something which screams led. Conversely, on the tspp with ledocd, if it were not for the pure and eye poppingly bright color, one wouldn't suspect led at all. And so it goes. Hands down, on I'd reckon any game, ledocd is the absolute must have shiz. There. Glad I got that off my chest.
Someone please correct me, but I believe that's where the ocd comes in. The preset values are good, but one can tweak them as they see fit and someday achieve perfection.
I see! Ya know I considered that, but wasn't sure how it would look. The way you've presented it is perfect. Natural. Expected. Thanks!
Just thought I'd update with the quality of sparkys idea for toy mounting. Whadya think?
Had this dream where I was playing my TSPP and noticed as I made the couch ramp that there was a true to the couch gag doorway with a Homer having smashed through it attached to the bracket above the ramps switch. I bet someone with a bit more imagination could actually make something like it, ah hem, Sparky. It looked pretty rad.
A doorway similar to this. That goes atop or in front of the couch ramp on the upper pf. Like the ball is homer getting rammed through the wall by Marge. I dunno. Seems stupid now that I think about it.
Seasons 11-20 or something similar, maybe it was 21 onward. I can't remember. Doh! And I thought I knew my simpsons trivia.
But something right here to cover up the hardware would be pretty slick.
Has anyone decided what the absolute best speaker upgrade for the backbox is? Brand and fitment wise.
I actually just rounded up the goods to make a dozen. I'll share them with you guys when I get a chance to make them up.
I just figured anything was better than the stock paper cones. But ifn it ain't it aint...
Anyone got a coupon code for colorDMD?
Quoted from Sparky:
This club has been quiet for a while.
In collaboration with Joe Zenkus of Random Pinball, I just added the 4th TSPP mod to my shop, as well as available at mezelmods.com.
If you've been pleased with the TV, Treehouse, and Lampstand, you'll be very pleased with In Rod We Trust Flasher Dome Replacement (name the episode).
Comes with a green wedge flex led flasher.
$45 in my Pinside shop or Mezelmods.[quoted image][quoted image]
It has been quiet. Guess that's what happens when a game just always works and is nearly perfect as it sits. I appreciate the heck out of you always making new stuff. Whata guy.
Not at all bud. I did mine, playfield in. What helps is a friend to hold one end while slowly progressing. It looks way worse than it is.
No ball save? Factory or harder settings? Open outlanes? You guys must be far better players than I.
Just to throw my hat in the ring, yes, absolutely, 100%, without a doubt, not even up for debate in all honesty, pinstadium is fantastic. Do it. The UV flasher is worth it alone. Adds so much and I love it
