Custom Munsters Topper idea and a few more mods!
« on: April 14, 2019, 07:58:40 AM »
Just sharing some pictures of the topper I put together for the Munsters premium. I didn't want something too colorful, obviously or too tacky. So I just used the 1:18 scale die cast cars you can buy by ERTL. Both the Munsters Koach and the Dragula sit a top of the machine with no permanent modifications at all and they are back lit with green LEDs. I just used the black 1/2" adhesive weather strip foam you can buy at Lowe's for windows. The cars are secured on the back inside, with the back tire in the back only, secured in place . The foam runs the entire length of the car, but you can't see it while standing at the machine. The black really blends in nicely. You can barely see the piece between the cars that hides the corners connector that links the two LED strips behind the cars. If I didn't used the LEDS, you wouldn't see the stripping at all while standing around the machine or when playing it. If I find a better way to run the LEDs, you won't see the foam adhesive at all. I'll work on it. The topper is simple, but very cool, displaying in detail the two iconic cars from this show.

We have all heard this line before, but it does truly look so much better in person.

Other some pics of a few more mods I put in, a dual flashing Dragula car, light Koach, and decals for the bats.
