Sooooo happy to be a part of this club!
I needed this mod more than most of you? Why am I special you ask? Because I could never see jack in my crystal ball...even at the right angle (0.0000056° btw). It was always blurry. Well, following Steve's excellent instructions, I figured out the ball was installed wrong from the factory. The flat side which should have been parallel to the screen was the part with glue all over stuck down to the plastic base! Of course this presented a whole new problem which meant I had to remove 100% of the black plastic and glue. I then had to sand it with multiple passes of ever finer sandpaper and then Novus 3, and N2 to remove glue, gouges and scratches. I wish I had taken a before picture. It was a hot mess. I did grab one after a few sanding passes. Wasn't easy, but so worth it to do the job right.
Got her installed and I am seeing all kinds of stuff I never saw before...the Characters, the witch on CB mode and at least 2 other witch animations, yellow brick road and much, much more. Pretty much the only things I saw before were skill shot, WOZ and the swirly candy graphic. I am so stoked! I thought that was the most useless toy before. Not anymore! I now drain because I am focused on the CB.
What a work of art too. I also like the gouveia stamp and gold signature. Well done Steve.
Now about that campy witch...
