I didn't understand if by doing this order, I get the cards that are already paid out of all the components and that I just need to put the rgb panels to do the pin2dmds because of who answers me

place an order like in a lucky1 movie and wait patiently for an email with a quote for the whole.  ;)

Just solder the power connectors to the pads, and screw the panels to the pcb.

Hi Lucky, can you please advise where you bought the parts for this connector.

I order my parts from Digikey but I'm in Canada. I'm sure they will ship worldwide. I like Lucky1's cables but this is what I've been building. And no, you probably don't need the 3rd wire between the Z connector and the J116 connector as long as you use J116 in the back box . You can use J117 in the back back as well and that 3rd wire cares 5v.

The J116/J138 connector is an MTA-156 IDC connector and the pin2dmd power connector is VHR-4N. The question is how are you constructing the circled part below? That looks like 2 pieces combined or maybe I'm mistaken.

Those are simply 90 degree pinheaders with the solder pins bend straight. 

Normally you would use a z-connector, but those are hard to get.

I checked everywhere for them. I think Stern uses them in their games but they must have someone manufacturing them as a special order. There was one company that used to make them but I think they went out of business. Pinball Life sells them as well.

In the end, that's why I'm just soldering and heat shrinking the wires to the connector.
