Hi All,

I recently purchased a very cool backglass (Stern Flight 2000) and would like to build a cabinet for it complete with lights and (fake) scores. Would greatly appreciate it if someone can point me to a site or provide instructions as to how I can go about building one.

Thank you!

Josh

You want to build a cabinet from scratch to match the translite?
You better buy the whole machine and restore it...

Yes. It is totally insane.
Search for a trashed machine and restore it. And then you will have a decoration piece that actually plays

WizardMod oh that’s right you’re in the US. Have you seen the prices of machines here in Australia. Even the ones that need work. You’d need to mortgage your house bro

and would like to build

I assume you have woodworking skills? Do you know how to use Sketchup? Personally, I don't attempt anything anymore without drawing it on SKP first. Reason being, when I hit the table saw, I don't have to think because all of the mistakes were made previously and all of the measurements are exact. Not a great picture, but here's a piece I worked on as I was thinking about the push button section and using playing cards to envision what it might look like. This is an interactive learning tool - I'll post a complete picture later, or you can see it at Pastime Pinball, it's only a 25 hour flight to NY then head 4 hours north.
