Pete aka @Moonraker mentioned he'd seen/heard of Tyre Tread Pinball Legs on a HS2 . Anyone else seen this - as it does sound like a great idea, and something I'd like to try on mine.

Any pics/patterns would be very welcome.

Very cool - thanks, I like the Carbon Fibre “dashboard” look.

I also knocked up this pattern this afternoon. I will see if I can get a laser cut stencil, to have my pin legs take on a tyre tread look.

Thinking a Matt black powder coat, then apply the stencil, then apply a gloss lacquer... remove stencil...

If I’ve measured it correctly - this stencil should fit standard pinball legs (ribbed and flat). The centre line should align with the 90 degree bend on the leg.

Let me know if you think it’ll work.
