BONY BEAST RED EYE!
"...I also wanted the Bony Beast skull to have red transparent acetate in his eye openings. You could use hot glue to attach some from behind. Looks way cooler than the red condom lights!", according to Dennis Nordman.
This was taken from a post by Robert Winter in 1999 to the rec.games.pinball newsgroup. It had an exclusive interview with Mr. Nordman on the various cuts made to SS at different stages of its life. To read the rest of this article (very interesting), click HERE. He also talks about an awesome modification you can make to the skull-pile candle flames.
On the right, you can see the "before" pics. The eye openings are cut-out on the beast head and bulb covers placed over the bulbs underneath. Click on the image to enlarge

METHOD: Take some overhead transparency paper (for overhead projectors). With a computer paint program, size a new project at 8.5 x 11 inches. Block out 50% of the page with bright red. Then "print" onto the transparency paper. Afterward, replace the paper onto your printer and do a second pass (this will deepen the color). You may notice streak marks. However, you will not notice them once installed.
Remove the beast head and "red" bulb covers (2). Cut a block of the transparency and epoxy (or hot glue) to the back of the head. Make sure the block covers both eye openings. Cut a second block, and secure it to the first. Doubling up will dull the lamps underneath and look awesome. Replace the head. The end!
If you have any questions on this particular modification, feel free to contact me anytime. Thanks for reading!
