I would've just rounded it to 36 beers. Nicely done!

Quoted from TractorDoc:

Ordered some new ramps with the playfield so looking forward to sprucing things up once I'm finished with a couple other projects.

Where did you order the ramps from?

Scoot,

I have always been underwhelmed with the plastics palm trees. So when I got new plastics, I decided to upgrade them a little.

Did you stick the trees where the screw hole was or attach them some other way?

I cut the tree stem to desired height and then drilled a screw size hole in the bottom. Then I just removed a lock nut and screwed the tree on in its place. It was easy and surprisingly secure. I had to swap out the tree stems for the smaller palm trees, since the stems were a little too small to drill a hole. Just pop off the top, swap stem and all set. I put two small ones in the front and one large in the back.

Can anyone help me with a wiring problem I'm having with my Earthshaker? My upper left flipper coil has a black wire coming off the right connector and a blk/blu wire coming off the left connector. I found the black wire hanging under the playfield. I've traced the blk/blu back to 2J8-12 but I don't know what the black connects to. Anyone know where that black wire from the upper left flipper coil goes?

I didn’t like how the start button doesn’t illuminate on my Earthshaker so I decided to do something about it. I purchased a few illuminated start buttons and ultimately decided on the larger Data East start button for this project. This was because the other smaller ones would require me to counter sink the start button into the cabinet. This would look great and be inline with all my other pins, but without having the proper tools I was afraid to mess up and ruin the cabinet.

All I had to do was widen the hole inside to the existing outer hole dimension. Then the button would just slide into place. As for wiring, I simply unsoldered the three wires with diode and solder them to the new switch.

The lighting was just as simple. I tapped into the coin door lights and put in a blinking bulb. Now I have a lighted start button that is much better than the old, white button that used to be there.

It would drive me crazy that it isn't centered in the decal design

Even when on vacation completely away from pinball, some things just keep reminding me...
