No More Glare

Post by Eddie » Sun Oct 19, 2008 9:38 pm

Im not sure about You guys but the Backglass Glare on my RFM was driving me nuts. I even took out the Backglass Bulb once to see the difference on the playfield and it was much better but I still wanted my Backglass to be lit.

While at the Pinball expo08 I was given a glare Guard from the owner of PinZero Through the generosity of Mr Chuck Hess. Lets put it this way the thing works and does Not
take away from the machines appearance. Its simply a piece of formed plastic that works as a BackGlass Visor. It just slips in under the bottom of the translite and voila No more Glare. Ill let the pics do the talking.

Good idea, looks great!

I use glare guards on all my DMD pins but never thought of putting one below the translite on a p2k pin. Duh.

Chuck its the thought that counts!

I just received an email from Kim from www.ZonedOutPins.com and guys he said that if you want a Glare Guard mention my name Eddie or Chuck as a reference and he will quote you a discount price! How cool is that?

To be honest, I have never noticed a glare at all. Maybe it's because my gameroom is pretty dark near the games?


Watch...now I will notice it and it will drive me crazy... Thanks alot! :D
