    Inner cabinet art looks cool.
    Looks like it can be a real 'treat' to install.
    Anyone have experience and can shed some light?
    Looks like it would be easier or required to pull the playfield.
    Just looks like I will have to weigh the pros and cons.

    Input???

    I have done mirror blades on my Dr Who and Shadow. Pretty easy to install, just a couple screws. Just ordered sideblades for my Metallica and Tommy. Will let you know how they turn out.

    I find tilt graphics to be a little thiner but more forgiving when applying - no need to wet and they lift well for repositioning. Definitely easier with the playfield out and you are done in minutes. Have done quite a few with the playfield in - really depends on the playfield and how many pieces get in your way - of course the hardest spot to reach is where the crease happens.

    Sorry, to be clear, Ive done 2 pin graffix in Stern machines and 1 Stern blades. All easy. I returned the Tilt graffix blades as they took over 5 week to even ship them (2mo. wait time) and they were paper thin and generally disappointing quality. Stickers really

    I was under the impression the PF out will make the process much faster and easier.
    Just turns it into a 2 person job.
    Could be a good project if vacation away does not happen.

    I would be looking at stern blades. Just to pimp Aero a bit more.

    Wife didn't like the train on the Sterns.
    Went with the tilts.
    Will post some pics once I get them installed.
