Genuine tempered glass (not a translite). This is our custom mirrored version of the Viking backglass. Bally skipped mirroring on this machine – but we thought it deserved some extra treatment! If you are up for some additional pinball glitz for your game, we added tasteful custom mirrored accents to the traditional Viking glass layout. See the photo gallery for a diagram identifying the mirrored areas. If you are more of a purist, we also offer a standard Viking backglass (no mirroring). Go back and see the listing in the Backglass section of the Store.
Polished corners and edges, ready for new trim and lift bar. Gorgeous replacement, finally get rid of that old chipped, crackled, or shedding original backglass.
NOTE: The overall color scheme you see in the main thumbnail IS what you get on this reproduction glass. A ton of effort was made to source the best possible original artwork sample that preserved the ACTUAL ORIGINAL “belly of a wooden ship” color scheme of the original painting and Bally glass… which is a darker brown-based scene… NOT a lightened yellow/orange-based scene. We did not repro this backglass based on the look of the 40 year old aged/lightened/washed look that most people have in their games today. This reproduction is based on an NOS glass that had been stored for 40 years with zero exposure. Take a look at the gallery pictures – showing a lab roof print. (left) of the final CPR master artwork (what is printed to the reproduction)… compared to the 40 year old NOS original (right). Plus two outdoor pictures (front-lit and back-lit) of the non-mirrored version. This reproduction glass backlights GORGEOUSLY and restores all the range and colors that you unknowingly had lost – with all the dynamic range, black levels, and restored tones that have suffered tremendously on many VIKING backglasses today… many people are used to a washed-out yellow/orange figment of what the original glass looked like 40 years ago.
