    Its beautiful to me, these variations in color they happen , but i do know how you feel one green color in my back glass was slightly bluer than the original did i notice -yes , did it bother me - only if i let it , when it comes to colors i understand there are challenges to get perfect matches , and color is different to different people it is highly subjective , the thing i consider is that many aspects of the back glass are much better now no flaking , no red fade to pink colors or see through colors , my blacks are awesome .better contrast and pop . looking at your old glass it has a nice condition of aged patina that has less color saturation in it than the new glass , when it comes to old art we all love the old patina and details , your new glass was ordered to give your old machine some wow . let me ask two questions . how does the details look on the new glass? and if you turn your machine on walk out of the room then walk back in how does the machine look to you with the new glass (non critical of color ,just how do you feel about the new glass and the machine) if it gave your machine something fresh in appearance than its great

    now that i stare at it the mountain being red instead of brown is the biggest thing , if you can look past that is the thing

    the blues look better and
    the yellow shangri la looks better
    the blacks look better
    greens pop more

    Quoted from PinballAir:

    Yes, i felt bad that it was a one off glass that no one would ever buy from him.
    The second glass was short in height by one inch.
    The pic i sent had 2 tape measures stretched out over it showing the length and the width. I also included the dimensions in the email in written form. I waited months and months. My wife said he took my money and i was going to get nothing but i knew he would come thru.
    With the second one, i decided to cut my loses and just make a 1" filler for the base of the glass. When i was done you could not tell unless you owned the game.
    I did not tell steve that the second one was also the wrong size. I did not want to burn that bridge.

    wow , these things happen because of either poor communication method or working to fast , I don't think you or steve were at fault , i would just tell him what had happened anyways and give him the opportunity to do the right thing , an artist like steve is likely a profectionist and if this is new to his catalog he will likely catalog what he creates including mistakes

    Quoted from PinballAir:

    It was 2 years ago.
    I have since sold the game.
    I tried to sell the second glass on pinside.
    No interest.

    i didn't know that was history , sorry for your short straws you drew , it is a concern when we enter into these things as we hope for the best , and thanks for sharing this story
