The Shadow reproduction playfields feature a
custom added Lightblock Layer, following the same design
of the lightblock layer on the rear of a traditional backglass.
This new layer was added into the silkscreened artwork stack,
right against the wood face, and behind the white (#1) layer.
This new Lightblock Layer completely covers the
rectangular center-playfield inserts, with openings only for the
phrases/fonts, closing off the glow of unnecessary parts of the
inserts. With the entire art package being printed over
top, marrying perfectly to these openings, the contrast of the
center-playfield insert group is maximized. Feel free to
shine a 5000 lumen flashlight behind these inserts - your
artwork will always remain jet black. No more "rectangles
of glow" revealing themselves through the artwork. The artists
only intended the WORDS to glow ... not the shape of the insert
showing itself. For those planning to convert to high
brightness LEDs - this design enhancement will be a vast
improvement for you. Rear view (revealing the black
Lightblock Layer) is shown below.

This is how solid your black artwork will be,

The rest of the silkscreened artwork,
including white, was printed ON TOP of this special layer.
Only the WORDS and ACCENTS will light up, and the glow of
rectangular inserts will not be visible from the front.

gameboard exactly behind the car's headlight artwork (under the

If one decides to utilize the inserts, each end user can decide
what makes them light up.
Tie them to the GI lights, controlled playfield inserts, or
(more advanced) the firing of coils.

We believe the best style of illumination for your
Headlights Inserts would be a "flat style" solution, that
keeps physically out of interference with hardware and
wiring in proximity to that area of the playfield underside.
One such solution is pictured to the left.
Feel free to use whatever lighting you like, but for
planning purposes, this suggestion should get you started.
