Quoted from mrm_4:

Forgot to post that I also pulled the trigger on the alternate CPR topper. I’m going to light it up from behind just haven’t made the time yet.

Very nice. Now that's a topper I'd like. The regular one just doesn't look different enough. I have that logo on my cabinet, why put it on top as well right?

Where'd you get those score/instruction cards that go on the apron there? I have a few aftermarket ones, but I like the darker background colors of that.

I stole them from beatmaster
His Firepower resto thread is what sparked my interest in the game. I still check his thread about 4 times a week waiting for progress

Awesome! Thanks for the link man. I have some that are similar to that, but they're red instead of the darker background color.

These lanes on the machine were giving me some pretty bad ball hop so I decided to get the enhanced version of cliffys outlanes.

I pulled the old lanes out and filed the bell posts off to transfer to the new.

Cleaned them up with some evaporated for a while

Put on replacement decals I made for the lanes and noticed that the holes drilled on the right lane are wider than the left.

I tried to get the tops of the old bells to expand with my punch but the holes are too wide so there is play and the lane doesn’t sit high enough

So now I still have the same ball hop.

I hate this hobby sometimes

So on the right out lane I teetered the left side of it as high as I could and teetered the right of it as low as I could and tightened the hell out of it.

Plays like butter for a game or 2 until the impact of the ball pushes the right out lane too low towards the right flipperimage (resized).jpg
