I'm really digging the blue (Powder coated?) coin door on that WH20.
However, I would have painted / powder coated, the 2 black bolts at top, and what are the 3 smaller bolts, in the lower left bottom?
Man that blue trim package is the BOMB! That's looks beautiful! Is that painted or powder coated?
I have a repo (Mirco?) playfield. There is no hole, or even markings for one, above the pop bumper, for a cone post.
I do have a small button ring on the single post near upper right pop bumper.
Mine looks like Blitzburgh99 in pict 3383 above
Quoted from bigd1979:
New cab and decals, new playfield, new ramps, new boulders and many new mechs and coils. Also had color dmd , cliffys/mantis and few other mods and upgrades. Im gonna be adding chrome armor,gi and insert ocd boards and some other stuff. Going to be 7500-8000k . Its basically a new wh20 with nice upgrades .
Very nice! Thanks for sharing.
I would check the 3 AA batteries in the backbox. Inspect the battery holder carefully, to see if there has been any leaking battery acid. If so, you'll need to clean and possibly repair board.
I write the new date on the battery, when I install on them, with a sharpie. I rotate the battery with date out, so I can easily read it. That way, I can see when I feel it's time to replace them. For me typically 3-4 years.
Once the new batteries are in... reset your game to the settings you like (Free play / #balls / difficulty etc). The batteries will hold / save your settings until they can't any longer.
I'm glad he's making these and other parts. Sometimes, you just need to pay up to make your games nice.
It looks amazing! I know you've put a ton of time, frustration and $$$ into it... but now, WOW!
Congrats! I can't wait to play it.
Arcadenerd925... I'm glad you were talked out of white. I'm on the fence about blue (not light blue tho) or chrome, I like them both. Sorry, not much help.
mbeardsley... I agree with SoulRider911;
I took mine off, lightly sanded it and put a new semi-gloss black enamel paint job back on: EZPZ.
However, I didn't place any rubber pads on it. What I did was; slide 2 clear condoms over the 2 clear posts and their screw heads (down by shooter lane). Now its a rubber condom that touches it there.
arcadenerd925... your White Water looks great. Did you power coat your blue at Mass Brothers or somewhere else?
In my opinion; a couple tips / suggestions on your zip ties to hold the boulders;
1) They make them in many different colors... maybe they have a dark brown
2) If you decide the zip ties are permanent way of attaching them to the rails... take your dremel and cut off the original mounting holes, up to your new mounting holes. It should take away the large visible looking unpopulated hole/tab
Looking forward to playing pinball with you and the guys, as soon as this covid crap lightens up.
I agree with Bryan_Kelly... I'd take a very sharp razor knife, cut a slot parallel with the grain and gently massage the air bubble flat.
Soulrider911... to me it's a close call.
The original definitely has much more water fall movement, however, the huge crease down the center and the faded looking mountains brings it way down... with that said; the repop has nice mountain colors, it's clean and new looking but the flashlight is really lacking.
I would put it up with the 194's lights blinking on both, then decide. I'd be slightly leaning towards the repop.
If it were mine... I might be inclined experiment with a little heat and gently peal the corner up. It that went well, I'd peal the decal 1/2 off and massage out the heavy bubbles in middle of waterfall.
