3D Start Button -- Looney Tunes Shop highlight

Inspired by the film reel on the playfield and the film strung about Bugs on the cabinet, here is this 3D Start Button from Rocket City Pinball for Looney Tunes!

Starting with the an excellent film reel model courtesy of ImAThingsGuy, I created a start button to look like a full roll of film (printed with clear, black, and translucent black filaments) mounted on a silver reel! When the button is lit, the light shines through the 'film' on the face and the edges of the button. The START lettering is in a white Looney Tunes-esque font and is also backlit.

Since Spooky's Halloween pinball uses a smaller, recessed start button (unlike the now-standard ~1.5" start buttons used by Stern and JJP), this item includes a complete housing assembly to fully replace it. The new assembly will cover the counterbore in the cabinet, leaving you with a clean installation of the new larger button. SOME BASIC ELECTRICAL WORK WILL BE REQUIRED, due to Spooky's wiring configuration -- your choice of either cutting/stripping two wires and crimping on terminals, OR simple desolder/resolder of two wires. Details below.

FAQ:
Q: How do I install this button?
A: It's easy to install, but Spooky threw in one extra challenge -- they soldered the bulb wires to the socket. This complicates the installation just a little but the resolution is easy enough even for beginners. (Note: the microswitch wires are soldered also but this is not an issue, because you'll be transferring this entire switch into the new housing.)
You'll either:
a) de-solder the bulb wires and solder them onto to the new housing, orĀ 
b) if you're not comfortable soldering and/or don't have the equipment, then you will cut the wires and add spade terminals (included with the kit). You'll only need basic electrical tools (cutter, stripper, crimper) which you likely already have.

Here's a video to help explain why these options are necessary and how to perform the spade terminal option:



Note, typical start button installations on other manufacturer's games have spade terminals already on the light bulb, in which case the installation process would simply work like this:
