In a matter of a minute or two pinballplusMN came up with the idea of rewiring the upper left flipper to the lower right flipper. This creates a few challenges.

The most obvious, you can't use the left flipper with the left button, which is the hardest for me.

Second, you're locked out of the left orbit when shooting from the right if you hold the button down too long.

Thirdly, which can sneak up on you, a held button from the bonus X shots, especially bankshot, can cause the right outlane issue to crop up from the upper flipper being held out too long.

I made a quick video on YouTube of how John did this and we are currently streaming this on Twitch (Pinball Outpost channel), it's a lot of fun! Easily reversible too!
