br80 dude amazing work, that WW is beautiful. I may be picking one up soon that I plan on restoring. The only thing I don’t have and have not done before is the backbox screen. Where did you get yours? Thanks!

#3194 1 year ago

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!

#3202 1 year ago

Finally in the club!!! So excited I have been wanting a WW for a long time. Picked one up at an auction and it had the topper!! Going to be my next restoration project

#3210 1 year ago
Quoted from billsfanmd:

start off with the boulder shooter

I have scoured the web and con not find them? Any help would be awesome!

#3216 1 year ago
Quoted from Hammerhead:

Let me know if this doesn't work out. I have a boulder shooter rod on my game that I want to switch out for the standard. We could trade, just pay for my shipping

Yes! I’m totally down I’ll let you know thank you

#3217 1 year ago

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

#3229 1 year ago

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.

Thanks elicash do you know what gauge the wire is used in that connector?

#3246 1 year ago

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

#3250 1 year ago

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 .

#3332 11 months ago

Thankyou kind folks!

#3334 11 months ago

Hot or cold garbage? Thanks Def don't want that

#3338 11 months ago

yesh23 that's basically what I was asking consensus... Don't use Leds. Stick with the stock #194 bulbs

#3339 11 months ago

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

#3360 11 months ago

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

#3363 11 months ago

Got thanks so much guys.actually looks like it wouldn't even matter of I did swap them? They both do the same thing?

#3375 11 months ago

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

#3405 11 months ago

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

#3412 10 months ago

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!

#3420 10 months ago

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.

#3478 10 months ago

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 .

#3489 10 months ago

poleposition you just have to remove the boulders, and can usually squeeze your fingers in there to attach it (if your using machine acres with nuts) if using the wood screw style way easier

Quoted from TheLaw:

Oh boy... Here comes the puking

LOL are you specially referring to the "rainbow puke club" by chance... If so, Ya well this machine ain't going in that category, hell'd freeze over before I let that happen

#3499 10 months ago

thelaw your opinion, and by definition there will be no rainbows. And umm it's a water theme?? I can count the blue bulbs in this game on 2 fingers.

One can choose to be pessimistic or optimistic...

#3502 10 months ago

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

#3507 10 months ago
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?

#3581 9 months ago
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

#3587 9 months ago

restoration noun
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
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.

I actually think it looks nice... you didn’t go crazy with all Sorts of color so it doesn’t look overstated I’m liking it nice job

C2173F14-000E-4867-A31A-5F910C1DE470 (resized).jpeg

First thought was the shooter was maybe mounted too low?
2AFFCE44-744D-4B10-95DA-3B7E5251E27E (resized).jpeg

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.

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

You know ultimately it just comes down to me looking to build things for myself and not pay a ton of money to someone else for things that I know I can do or make myself.

Love this man can’t wait to see it!

#3825 7 months ago

Looks Good PinDeLaPin what about rotating the LED so the seam is on top. As when standing in front of the machine you more prone to seeing the bottom of the led in that opening rather than the top, so it could look more "seamless" just an idea .

#3848 7 months ago

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.
