I just wanted to share my custom pinball work. I know I had a few dozen questions when going about re-making the playfield and backglass. So I wrote up a one page web page to share my experiences. I hope you like it . Thanks. CW Here's the link:

Wow! Fantastic job! I may even like it more than the original. I always though the artwork on the playfield was a bit busy.

That's crazy man. It looks awesome. Nice work!

What does the 'Shoot Again' insert between the flippers look like?

Nice work! Thx for posting..

Wow. THAT looks KILLER!!!

Wow, thanks people. These comments really help (I show them to my wife). By the way, most of the images on the web site can be enlarged by clicking them. I know I strain my eyes trying to see the details.

Great work best flash I have seen! Man this week I have seen the best Xenon, BH, and Flash!

Amazing work! A friend and I are thinking about doing something similar.

Amazing work, thanks for the link to the website.

I have thought about doing this for many years, you make it look easy.

Now if I can only light it up like that BAdass Xenon on eBay. If anyone has a Xenon in poor condition I would be willing to talk.

Not a fan of the shirtless dude original.

Update: I just found the name of the font used on the Flash playfield and backglass. It's called Neon Lights. I've been looking all over for it. Would see it pop up on 8-Tracks, old T-Shirts, and even a sub sandwich wrapper. If I only had it a year ago. I ended up vectorizing some of the letters and numbers one dot at a time in photoshop. Took a really long time. This site is blocking my upload, I can send the font thru e-mail if anyone needs it. Here's a pic:

Thanks again, took it to the Zapcon pinball show here in Phoenix back in April. A little nervous (pinball crowds can be tough) but I got good feedback.

I think I'm the tough audience you're talking about! I like things to be original, all incandescent, toy and mod free. That's just my taste, not knocking anyone else's preferences. Also Flash was my first game, so I'd be especially prickled by a re-theme.

SCREW IT YOUR FLASH WAS AWESOMMMMMMEEEEEEE; I played it like 75 times. Look forward to seeing it again, just so interesting! My precious Flash is garbage compared to yours, haha.

Oooh rad find on this font, too! I (lazily) always wondered where I could find it.

Careful, your inflating my EGO! Look it's so big I was caught playing my own machine at ZAPCON. (I do not know the person who took this photo)
