I´m sorry guys, but these are made for arcades, they don´t give a rats **** if they are different, as long as they serve the purpose, plain simple.

Btw the "original" F Panels don`t have a sliver background, they have a clear background, so you can see the silver panel plate.

There's a protective film on my L panel too. Looks like they found some old stock of those I guess. It was the budget option so it's nothing fancy but I feel for the Vewlix F owners. The original overlays on those were lovely, as is the Dia Black. Not Zak's fault but disappointing to see Taito have gone for a cheaper option. Actually, why are we surprised. :palm:

our secondary US Group order had the same deal.

The F Panels had some flaws (bubbles, scratches, etc). The L panels were fine other than the metal being what it was.

I kinda like the F panels being the new color in a way- I think they look nice. It's just the fit/finish that was underwhelming.

I'm going to be selling my original print F overlay, if anybody is interested. I have just one, and I had two cabs. I think if the F panels are that big of an issue, reprints that match might be a thing for symmetry.

I wonder what changed in the panel process that made it more expensive and seemingly lesser quality?

I think it's called "Bas.tard Orange" on the price list :shifty:

That is interesting though :think: Thanks for sharing that.

Thank you again.
I could put pics showing my 2p cp vewLix f neW bought to jan 3 years ago but it s non sense. This color is a pure mistake for vewlix f. They should be claimed. Did they ask you to choose color?
Regarding the blue one, it s perfect, seems i had a nos one, with plastic covering, same as my also 2p cp new panel also bought to jan 2 years ago :awe:
Side by side same stuff, all 2 new.
No scratched.

Again red panels are nice and perfecr for orange dia for instance or even c.

Probably not the consolation you want to hear, but the stick washer/cover will hide that?

must admit I was really disappointed by the F panels, totally different colour and the original has a silver background whilst the new ones are just white.
different colours too for Dia panel :( Panels made in India maybye :lol:

Don t forget the 2p panel looks originally darker compared to the 1p.

I think it's very good of you to try. Not sure I would even bother as I doubt you'll get anything out of them. I'm sure nobody holds this against you as you put a lot of time and effort in here for free. It's not your fault.

Jan's right here. Anyone who got an NOS one got lucky. With hindsight it was perhaps naive to think the reprints were guaranteed to use the same process and be to the same quality as the ones printed years ago when the cabs were released.

I complained to Taito when I received my overlays. Their reply back was:
Parts section said that specification for the sticker was changed, backing color is different and it does not have a protective film.

We produce only this type at the moment.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
The lack of protective film was my biggest disappointment. Like Ikaru the overlay I received had scratches as well :problem:
