Cab decals not so happy.
To clear things up on this... I always recommend the originals from PPS. NextGen is really good. That's what I put on my machines. However, the reasons you were not happy with the decals was that: (a) they deviated from the original designs for The Getaway (it was a vector remake with slight differences) although I also have a scan, and (b) you've opted for no laminate which typically means you ought to clearcoat it. You were also unhappy with TOTAN decals, because I've printed incompletely retouched scans, and again no laminate. Naturally, I've immediately refunded the money for the mistake I've made. The bottom line is: I recommend to buy originals for high end restorations. There's another reason: it is not possible to print with fluorescent paint with digital printing, and for some decals, i.e. Creature from the Black Lagoon, or T2 , you need them to be silkscreen printed with the correct fluorescent colors. I hope my explanation makes sense. Cheers guys!

Yes clearly all my fault Krystian... Why anyone would 'opt for' a cab decal that is not scratch resistant is beyond me - but there you go. And the refund for the poor Totan image quality was appreciated.

Black Rose
Version V1G

Black Rose Translite V1G.jpg

I've made further improvements to this translite... There are many barely visible improvements. The Rose is slimmer, has different makeup, the colors are more vibrant, the scrolls have paper texture, the spark is different, sail has a smoother gradient, the logo is slightly improved, the Bally logo is hidden and will show when illuminated, etc. Let's see if anyone can point out all the differences. LOL.

Possibly the most boring speaker panel on any of the Bally/Williams classics.

Please make a better version of this and I for one will defiantly buy it.

Did you get sorted with the panel size I have one stripped down I can vector up for you if you need.
I’m currently trying a few ideas out to make a 5in speaker version with maybe front Acrylic. Hence asking if you done SM and XM as that’s what I’m making it for.

Yes, with a help of a friend, I think I got the dimensions very close. He is going to do a final test print later today to make sure it is perfect. We could trade files if you want :)

I’ll send you the vector which is pixel perfect but be aware there are discrepancies in sterns build as my SMs left speaker has been machined about 1.5mm out so there quality control is pretty naff.
as long as you have a slight over print it will fit everyone’s fine.

how would you like the file sent? Is a PDF ok or prefer cdr AI or some other file type?

Any format is OK for me. PDF is good. Thank you!
