Hey guys so I’m going to hopefully be getting ahold of a WW that I’m going to restore. I don’t have a spray gun, and have made out pretty well with spray paint this far. But WW Has a fairly unique blue. anyone know spray paint color that is at least close?
I pulled up an old article that bryan_kelly was mentioning Painter's Touch #1927... but I can’t seem to find it love any help cheers!
Hey guys starting to order parts for my restore. So decals, I have only ever used retro returns and have been very pleased! I love that I can use a heat to work out any wrinkles bubbles and help the bond. They don’t make Whitewater cabinet decals. Planters does but I have never used theirs. Anyone have any input on their quality? Thanks
Hey fellow rafters need your help, the coin door interlock on a white water is the stacked double switch right? My had been pirated so can’t tell.
Anyone know where to get this 9 pin connector?? It’s a Molex connector right? I need both male and female, this is for the power transformer, I found #5792-13224-09 on Marcos site but not sure if that’s it
Hey guys, so digging more into my game today and I noticed the topper lights are not sequencing, is this a menu item that can be toggled? Also, if not, is it typically the board, and should I replace it? thanks
Is anyone using Leds in the topper? I'm going to be using an led ocd, and in order for it to work error free all your feature lamps need to be led that would include these I'm,pretty sure .
Was not happy with the stock color treatment on skull mountain so attempting to match closer almost there. Still needs some work
I have LCD's on all my games, the best... had an led on a stern and it was awesome... but man they are bright.... to the point my eyes could not really process the color separation at times. the LCD has a much softer feel, and more configurable just my 2 cents
Hey fellow Rafters, I need your help. Would one of you mind looking at your female 15 pin connector (harness side) that connects to the transformer?
I just put a new connector on and i may have swapped two wires by accident .
If you look you should have 2 blue wires of the 15, one is a blue/greyish strip, and one blue/violet stripe. see my pic below for reference is mine correct? thanks
Got thanks so much guys.actually looks like it wouldn't even matter of I did swap them? They both do the same thing?
I just realized I didn't even put a ring on mine when doing my swap, I'm going to go back and put one on..
Personally I think the post is useless, the star post u circled however I think is needed as it acts as a diverter for the ball... The upper right one... Seems pointless to me
yesh23 hey dude looks like your missing a plastic that is supposed to go there that prevents the ball hitting the switch as you mentioned.
Interestingly I just got a new set of plastics, and this piece was not included so I had to use my old one.
Maybe I can pull mine off and scan it, may be able to get it made?
Here u can see
If you wanted to make yours super unique, you could take all the fur off your yeti and use it for a template and get some white from a crafts store that would be awesome!
I like the exploration and craft that some folks have done to create the snow look and I can appreciate that, they are making it their own.
But, I'm one of the those guys that likes keeping things original with functional improvements and minimal theme deviation.
like for me i love the original look, its timeless... and its just my opinion:
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 .
8K estimate for that list is quite a reasonable price as crazy as that sounds.
LCD all day IMO its a better display. LED, even on a really dim setting is blinding, and colors tend to bleed... Unless you have the eyes of a 15 year old the leds create small halos and it can be harsh. Nothing can beat the smooth crispness of LCD. But this is just my opinion, and I have owned both .
Manking progress on pain matching the missing mountain almost there. Also lighting underneath
Fair enough When I get it all together I'm open to suggestions... And the whirlpool I'm kinda up in the air about, I have seen with blue, red, orange, and warm white I was using ice blue which is basically one step bluer than cool white
IMO it's when u use super saturated Colors that it gets barfy, and ya that blue under the mountain is a good example of it
Quoted from TheLaw:
We've lost you already
Then in the words of goldmember "there is no pleeeaasing you." Sorry every single gi bulb in this game is not going to be white... So call it what u will, kinda funny how you clearly disregard any amount of work done to a machine because there is a blue bulb in it and now it's "shit". But like you said it's my machine and I'm definitely not seeking your approval. What a sinner I am to the pinball gods shame on me.
Point of clarification since you seem highly educated in this area... So all woz machines must Clearly be barf city in your book eh?
Well folks I'm pretty pumped the final MAJOR part for my restore is on the way, a brand new cabinet! It looks absolutely beautiful. Thanks to Paul at Virtuapin! And just wait until you see all the chrome that is going on this thing
Quoted from Marvin:
not a restore then. restomod- sure, restore no.
Hmm.. interesting semantics you offer... but your comment appears to have a negative connotation to it? Sorry if i'm taking it wrong.
But I'm still calling this a restoration. Just because I had a cabinet made does not change the fact that its a "restoration." Per your statement would then indicate any person doing a "restore" that used a new playfield, or any "new" parts for that fact would not be doing a restoration?... and I disagree with that.
The word restoration means restoring something to a previous or IMPROVED state. If you don't agree maybe email Webster
res·to·ra·tion | \ˌre-stə-ˈrā-shən \
Definition of restoration
1 : an act of restoring or the condition of being restored: such as
a : a bringing back to a former position or condition : REINSTATEMENT
the restoration of peace
b : RESTITUTION
c : a restoring to an unimpaired or improved condition
the restoration of a painting
d : the replacing of missing teeth or crowns
2 : something that is restored
especially : a representation or reconstruction of the original form (as of a fossil or a building)
See 1c.. anyway, be the negative/pessimistic critical person all you want, and it's your god give right. Just know i kinda chuckle every time I see someone post a blatant negative comment -like marvin - when they had the opportunity to say something supportive or maybe even positive... takes more muscles to frown than smile, just saying.
FYI... NEVER did I claim I RESTORED the chrome or the cabinet, maybe you should read through some of HEP's "RESTORATION" threads that use new cabinets Marvin.
Well... you clearly are contributing some groundbreaking information here, so thank you sir, for your wisdom. I love pinside
Your both right I’m disappointed I stopped to that level, but the dude irritates me not gonna lie haha
Soon as I get the machine wired up I’ll take tons yes ,,, backbox still isn’t on yet and the playfield is not in either maybe this week
Hey guys have a major problem. Just put the playfield in my new cabinet and the shooter is roughly 1/2” too low?!
First thought was the shooter was maybe mounted too low?
Second was the wrong playfield hangers as I had to replace the old ones , I cross referenced with my creature assuming they use the same size.
The playfield clearly looks to high at this end
I’m totally lost love any help please
I have a twisted pins nib whitewater topper I’ll be putting up for sale tomorrow. It’s the closet to the original I have seen and is foiled, but still doesn’t beat the original pm me if your interested.
To each is their own, but I would have to agree the glare could be bad depending on how illuminated you plan to go with your speaker panel.
I had actually bought the lighted speaker for my WH20 panel that lighted pinball mods makes and ended up not installing it, for a few reasons, but one was I could tell it was going to reflect off the glass a lot. NOW this can be partially remedied with a bent plastic protector...https://www.pinballlife.com/bent-plastic.html but I digress
Also, Invisiglass could help glare but that's like another 250.00
After over a year, Two brand new cabinets, having to drill the playfield holes (not fun)... moment of truth...
And the playfield fits and glass clears !!!!
Oh yes! The apron, it has el tape mounted to the back of it you got it, lights up!! Can’t wait to see it. I’ll
Share pics soon as I get er wired up.
Quoted from jawjaw:
Nice work, soulrider! Beautiful Whitewater. Is that missing boulder the one currently being sold? I know you paint matched it and looks like it fits right in. Tough to mix and match different boulders when everything looks different.
So... It took me a LOOONG time to find that one. There is a few other "missing mountains" that I have seen and I actually bought one that was on ebay and it looked like a wad of chewed gum LOL. This one I ordered from Australia, and I believe it was the last one they had.
