Quoted from steigerpijp:

Diverter cover & pipes are awesome! Got the mod couple factory on for now in mine but this is excellent in its own way, perfect!!
Whats the end cost going to be, approximate?

Got a photo? I don't think I've actually seen this mod (the mod couple factory) installed yet.

Will the factory tube mod work on the Wonka CE? It looks amazing!

#59 1 year ago

Yeah that tube looks awesome. It's a perfect mod for the SE, but I'd feel like I would be wasting some money upgrading to an LE/CE, only to have a mod covering the nice colored rails.

I just got mine today...all I can say is wow! What a difference it makes. I installed it in about 15 minutes with no instructions. You have to remove the lower plastic to the front left of the house (you can leave the top piece on as I did to keep my mushroom field. The wheel on the lower tube moves when the ball rolls through, nice touch. It's very snug on the wireforms so be patient and work slowly.

That Gobstopper ramp sign is so cool. Does the light in it sync at all with the playfield lights, or is it constantly lit? Even if it's constantly lit it probably still looks good.

Also, this pin really needs a Wonkatania mod. It would be even more awesome if the paddles and lights are operable only during Wonkatania mode, because the whole playfield goes dark during that mode but then have a light illuminating in a Wonkatania mod

The ramp lights are tied to the GI. No plans for that other mod.

I've been trying unsuccesfuly to order it for a few weeks now. Pinside keeps rejecting it for unknown reasons and it is still not listed on his site. I really need some lighting in the back (mine is an SE) and I would prefer it to be interactive with the rest of the show. It seems Hooked's option is the only one like this so far.

I installed my Factory Tube mod last night. Looks good, though it was a bit of a pain to do (I just removed all of that extra clear plastic to the left of the factory. I kind of like how it looks without it). I'm not 100% sure how I feel about the "tubing" included, which I did have to trim, and I had to tweak it a bit to keep the ball from getting stuck on the "Danger" tube. Overall, it is a big improvement to that side of the playfield and does help with the relative lack of sculpts on this pin (as compared to, say, WOZ).

I also installed mirror blades from PinballDecals. It was a little aggravating to do on the right side, as the blades didn't want to fit at first, and the hinge pin was almost impossible to remove. The space is pretty tight on either side, but they DO work on Wonka, and make a big improvement to the overall look.
