Quoted from mof:

Where do we get LED posts from?

I got some from Tony @ GLM around 5-6 years ago and they still work great.

Quoted from j_m_:

have you completed the seawitch back glass already or is that still in the planning stage?

I bought one of john's seawitch bg's in 2009

Quoted from greatwichjohn:

The really early Seawitch glass (my first before uv inkjet production to glass) was color printed clear film & metal chrome film. Can't believe the hours that went into those.

I bet looking at the pic of the old chrome version brings back some good memories. Did you used to have to handcut all the chrome film? I saw your new glasses last year and they look much better now with your new process, but i've always been pleased with how these turned out compared to what i had.

Quoted from jwilson:

That brings up the question of who owns the rights to old Stern stuff? I assumed Stern Pinball given the somewhat unbroken chain from Stern through DE to Sega.

I'm pretty sure Stern Electronics Inc officially closed from 84-86? before Gary started Pinstar and Data East Pinball was started. I know a few years ago Stern Pinball Inc still had employees that were working for them since the Chicago Coin purchase, but it wasn't officially the same business for all those years. I've heard that a Stern family member owns the SEI rights to vids/pins but she doesn't legally enforce any copyright laws. I'd guess that Steve Young probably knows.
