MOD INSTALL : INSTALL OF STAR TREK PREM STAINLESS DMD PANEL, EL PAPER, AND LIGHTED SPEAKER MOD (VIDEO)
In this video I install on my Star Trek Premium pinball machine the stainless DMD panel, lighted speaker mod, and blue EL Paper that fits behind the Star Trek logo of the panel.
I ordered the stainless DMD panel from Kapsreiter who sells his mods on Pinside. Kapsreiter makes some great mods including additional DMD panels for AC/DC, Metallica, and Tron. The stainless DMD panel looked great but I felt it would look even better with the Star Trek logo lighted when installed on the pinball machine. People started to post pictures of the DMD panels with the lighted logo which looked great. I decided to make a how to video as it usually happens of installing EL paper on the back of the panel to light up the logo.
The DMD panel with the lighted back looks fantastic as does the lighted speaker mod.
