Personally I am on the fence regarding making some of these more drastic changes. I did remove the screws from the ball guides but do not plan on shifting the whole ball guides and drilling new holes. Not because I think there is a problem with that, it's your game I say definitely do whatever you want to make it more enjoyable for you, but I am OK with having shots be tough and "perfect" shots rejecting sometimes. I can think of countless games that have 1 or 2 very hard shots. I'm sure you could make every single one of them easier by moving the ball guides, opening them up, etc etc, but aren't you then changing the intentions of the designer? If something was making the shot impossible to make then that is a different story but I don't need and/or expect to be able to hit the inner loop 5 times in a row for it to be enjoyable. It is absolutely a make-able shot leaving the ball guide as is. The garage shot is definitely tougher but that was Scott's intention. I actually find it easier to hit when comboing it with the inner loop and it is honestly an awesome feeling when you nail it. Just the 2 cents of a very average pinball player.
