BM66 gets a little love today
I remade the Batman/boat shooter bracket as the last one looked like it was cut out of some food packing box and not only rough was opaque and diluted the candy look below it.
Also made a few Flourecent Blue protectors which looked quite nice and gave some added protection.

Fitted this metal bit to Star Trek today, only had it two years!

Also found a solution to the dots on LED DMDs. Comet pinball have a anti reflection glare sheet that elongates any reflection from the DMD and also makes it impassible to see the LED DMD dots.

I’m going to bring a load of these back from TPF



Also dropped off the armour to the powder coaters for GOTG along with the upgraded speaker panel - good connection @Gonzo and they are going to do it candy blue similar in colour to the trim around the backbox. Slightly nervous about the colour but let’s see :) LOL should get it early next week.

Cheers,
Neil.

@Neil McRae I bought one of Pinballife's versions of the the no glare display sheets and they yes make a big difference.
I'm guessing the comet ones are a polar type filter also?

They work very well but obviously don’t stop the reflection from the back glass.

True but I have PDI glass. The filter is more about hiding the DMD dots that the reflection as it wasn’t that bad with PDI now you don’t see it at all.

STARWARS TOPPER knocked up this week ready and waiting for delivery of my pro.
I’ve made this to be quite generic so I can easily change the LED strips and etched Acylics to suit any pin and I’m really happy with the outcome.
Of course I‘d love the official Stern one but I’ve seen cheaper pins on here than theirs!

Few pics but TBH it looks better in the flesh

The generic base that spans 65in the width of most standard back boxes

Easy access via top plate so you can change LED strips to any colour or even RGB
