    Found these listed in the ICE website parts section....could we now modify original Super Chexx with the new scoreboard system?

    My guess is that the answer is yes. However, it's not just as simple as buying those boards. You'd need wiring harnesses, etc. By the time you add up all that expense (regular version + $1k in parts at least) you'd probably be better off just selling you current one and buying a new one.

    Yeah agree with your logic but there's always some circumstances that make it worth while for some. I have a 2005 Limited Edition Super Chexx (#99 of 100 made) that I prefer not to part with but wouldn't mind adding the update scoreboard to it.

    We had one of our employees do it. These pics are blurry. I have to get better ones. Then are really cool in person.

    #1658 30 days ago

    That's awesome.

    Part of the problem with these is everyone wants to play the home team or USA team, you solved that problem.

    #1659 30 days ago

    yeah send it to rob, he could prob fix it

    That's why I decided against my Slap Shot theme. Everyone would want to play as the Chiefs.

    Hi all. I have a SuperChexx NHL version Oilers vs. Flames (not Pro).
    I found an Edmonton Oilers decal that is 9” in diameter so I stuck it in the middle of the ice for a custom look. It fits great and cutting the slots were easier than I thought.
    The decal surface is a little less slippery than the ice. On fast passes or shots, no problem. During a slow pass, the puck noticeably slows down a little.
    Is there a substance anyone knows that can buff into the decal to speed it up a little? Perhaps as the decal wears from the puck repeatedly sliding over it will smooth it out.
    Can anyone who has used a foreign decal on a SuperChexx ice sheet offer any advice?

    Dunno if it will damage the decal, but I believe the manufacturer recommends using Pledge on the actual ice surface to speed things up a bit.

    Be reaaaaalllly careful with the pledge. I put pledge on my play surface and pretty much made the game unplayable. Way too fast... as in out of control fast.

    Just FYI

    How do people prevent their custom painted players from chipping? I have used multiple coats of spray and bush on clear, but still after every game I'm taking out a broom. Thankfully it's exclusively on the sticks, so I've been filling them in with Sharpie, but still I'm always concerned it's going to start coming off the players too.

    Take a Carnauba Car Wax and wax the decal. Issue is the wax doesn't last a long time but it will make a big difference.

    Triple thick clear coat has been what has been suggested to me. I have also heard that automotive clear coat works really well from another source.

    I have a 83 Chexx with a blown pcb and have the chance to buy a 2006 Super chexx motherboard and scoreboard. Would I be able to basically turn my chexx into a super chexx with these additions? If anyone has experience with this any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

    I think you should be able to convert it. The sensors and start buttons are the only thing you will be reusing and I don't think they have changed much over the years. You will have to redo the connectors but the super chexx board uses some standard molex connectors that you can get from most electronics parts suppliers. The connections look like they map over well. I have the part numbers for the molex connectors somewhere if you end up needing them send me a pm and I can find them on my old order. If you buy the board and decide not to convert send me a pm, I might be interested in buying it.

    I really appreciate it, will let you know if I buy it as I will need the part numbers for the connectors. Thanks again
