This becomes a never-ending story, because I am thinking of adding new features every time the cab is almost done…
This time User Ollybolly brought me an idea (Many thanks for that): The bezel of the backbox will be made of milky plexyglass – illuminated.
Well…. this is more complex as i thought…..
How will I manage to evenly illuminate the box and how could I make a milky frame in the glass?
I used 4 pieces of LED stripes, mounted on the backside of the LCD to evenly illuminate the box (Don’t forget to isolate everything hat could cause a short circuit!)
The backbox without glass – not illuminated:
The 2 strobes, which were mounted on the sides of the playfield, are now backbox strobes. 2 superbright LED-Stripes are now the playfield strobes.
Here 2 pictures of the illuminated box and the new playfield strobes:
The glass is not finished yet, but here is an useful tip: NEVER use Frost-colors or similar!. It is looking quite fine – until you illuminate it…. I´ll give some static milky-glass-foil a chance….
