<![CDATA[BSD Powder Coating]]>Fri, 04 Jun 2010 12:55:29 GMThttp://pincrush.com/pinblog/bsd-powder-coating
I considered black chrome plating but ultimately went a different direction and did powder coating.  Note that this particular finish has some metal flake to it, but the effect is extremely subtle and you can't really tell without sunlight.  I intentionally flashed a couple of pictures to make the metal flake stand out so you can see it, but I assure you, its much more subtle in person.  This machine was a TPF in March so some of you may have seen it there.

<![CDATA[Army of the Dead]]>Sun, 16 May 2010 13:43:44 GMThttp://pincrush.com/pinblog/post-title-click-and-type-to-editAlmost finished with the lighted Army of the Dead mod for LOTR.  I've got a problem with the ball getting stuck behind the right-side Dead guy.  Need to figure out how to fix.


While I had the machine apart, I added Gimli, Baromir, and 2 more Ring Wraiths.  I also removed the plastic mounting pieces for all the figures on the slings, Sauromon (sp??), Aragorn, and the Orak-ur (again sp??!?!?) warrior in the back.  I added a blue LED accent light on the Ring Wraiths as well.]]>
<![CDATA[Whitewater Playfield Arrives!]]>Tue, 20 Apr 2010 21:36:17 GMThttp://pincrush.com/pinblog/whitewater-playfield-arrivesGot my new WH20 playfield in from Bay Area today!!  Ordered 4/13, shipped 4/14, arrived 4/20 (I'm in Texas).  Overall I'm very pumped about the new playfield!  Clearcoat looks good so far.  Mini playfield has a bit of a smudge in the black outline where Bigfoot goes.  I think this will be covered by a plastic, so I'm hoping its nbd.  Has some clearcoat on the back side of the playfield.  Don't think thats a big deal either.  First impressions are this is an absolutely gorgeous playfield and I'm very happy!!
Here are a couple of vids.  More on youtube.com

<![CDATA[Pinball Festival over]]>Mon, 22 Mar 2010 14:24:45 GMThttp://pincrush.com/pinblog/pinball-festival-overWell, its over until next year.  Had a blast as usual.  My Dracula won the Best 1990's Pinball award at the show.  Lots of nice comments and good conversations on the restore process and details.  ]]><![CDATA[Pinball Festival Prep]]>Thu, 18 Mar 2010 12:10:48 GMThttp://pincrush.com/pinblog/pinball-festival-prepThe 2010 Texas Pinball Festival starts tomorrow.  Had a fliptronics board issue on Dracula earlier this week (fixed now), so haven't had a chance to do any sort of packing for the pinfest.  I need to get both BSD and RS broken down, wrapped, and loaded.... busy night ahead.

Tyler's latest play opens tomorrow night as well - he is going to be a great villain!
