Quoted from Rat:
Months of waiting for my pin yet so I'm trying to get as much stuff ready in advance as I can. Replacement aftermarket flipper coil stops ordered, full Cliffy set ordered.
Will look into plasic protectors soon.
Considering a playfield protector, has anyone here installed one? difficulty rating? worth it?
Does anyone notice flipper fade from heated coils? I know Pin Monk sells fans, but the 3 fan set is OOS and doesn't ship here and would be costly.
Has anyone installed PC fans? If so I might be interested in some some good quiet fans that can plug directly into the game somewhere if anyone has a link?
What else should I be buying?
Now to search the thread for MODs such as trees etc, wow I never thought at 52yrs old I would be scouring eBay for little plastic trees and dinosaurs, but life can take unexpected turns
We have a playfield protector and a full set of cliffys on ours. No big deal putting one on. The raptor cage is a bit tricky as there is a separate piece to put in but apart from that if you can take a machine apart you can fit a protector easy. Take plenty of photos from all different angles as you remove each piece so you can work backwards and put the game back together. We also mark the electrical connectors with different colour sharpies so it is easier to put back together. Upside is it keeps the playfield pretty good underneath. Down side is you need to vacuum the coil dust out and sometimes the protector sticks to the playfield.
We have not noticed any coil fade, I know what people are on about but we do not notice it on this game. Personally I am not that into the game but my wife absolutely loves the thing. She can regularly get scores of over 1 billion and we have the outlanes wide oped and machine at 6.7 degree pitch.
Have fun with it, it is a cool game.
