I am looking to find a minimum of 4 other people who would be interested in purchasing a sheet of extra wide PDI glass for one of the following Pins:
Paragon
Embryon
Hot Doggin
Future Spa
Space Invaders
I spoke with Joey from pinballdecals.com and he said the extra large size of glass at 27.5x 43 could be custom made as long as we have 5 sheets ordered. I'm in on one for my paragon. Anyone else interested? Looks like it will Run about $400 a sheet with custom order and shipping
Let me know.
Thanks,
Joe

You can buy a whole game for that.

OP may want to change your post to just state wodebody as opposed to just Bally. There are a lot of widebody games out there that would help you get more than enough people. Just an example, I see a lot of people restoring Gottlieb Spirit and it's a widebody! Obviously would need to confirm the size of the original glass but again opening this up will help you reach that minimal order.

The widebody Gottliebs are all different sizes and lengths than the Bally's and even the Williams of the time. It makes sense to group the buy into just the Bally's.

I would love to have a sheet, but damn that is more than I paid for my Future Spa...

Thanks for clarifying!

Unfortunately, I don't think it's possible for them to make PDI glass for the widebody Gottliebs. I've talked with Roman about this, and they are limited to a length of 1090mm. This equates to about 43 inches. The glass on the widebody Gottliebs is over 48 inches.

I was in on a group buy of the same size/type of glass last year and it was a complete success. Hope you get it done, because for the discerning collector it's well worth the price. My HUO Paragon looks 100 times better since I got the PDI glass.

Gweem, that's a real bummer about the Gottlieb glass. I found this thread because I'm looking to buy a sheet of PDI for my recently restored Spirit. Dang!
